I have looked at all the "time format" options and the one I want is missing. I would like to display the time as hh:mm in 12h format. I can display as hh:mm in 24h format but the closest option available in 12h is hh:mm (am/pm). Can we have it without the am/pm, just the hh:mm? Should I file a report as a feature request?

Stop the slimserver
open up the SlimServer.pref file change the line for the time fromat

from
timeFormat = |%I:%M:%S %p

to
timeFormat = |%I:%M

restart the slimserver

That fixed it, thanks.
Shouldn't this option be freely available rather than an obscure undocumented feature?

How about filing an enhancement request. I'm sure bugzilla has plenty of room to request that every feature has a pref with an exhaustive list of options to please every single user.

Then again, when you think about it, the tar.gz version of the server is really just a big collection of text-based conf files for making Perl behave the way you want :)

How I wish I could understand the perl. Even people who might be able to create simple perl scrips are going to be daunted by the complexity of Slimserver! Thank you once again to everyone who does understand it and takes the time to help the rest of us.

gotta start somewhere. I did!
before digging into slimserver, I know barely enough to read in a filename,
re-arrange it and rename the file to a standard pattern. Even that was only
learned from examples. now I use Perl all the time to simplify repetetive
tasks at work. Stick up a web page front end, and everyone else gets to use it.
I'm still no Perl expert, but there are a lot of examples and resources
available online to fill in the gaps.
