View Full Version : Now Playing w/date & time?

While connected to SqueezeNetwork and streaming:

Is it possible to have the "Now Playing" screensaver display the wall clock time (and maybe date?) instead of how long I have been playing this particular stream?

I would have thought this was a FAQ, but I can't seem to find anything...

I don't think so.

The best way would be to use the Datetime
screensaver when playing.

How annoying. Who cares about how long the stream has been playing anyway?!? Anyone can give me an indication of how difficult that would be to hack for an experienced s/w engineer with no Squeeze knowledge? Any pointers where to start digging in?

Looks exactly like what I'm looking for, except I don't use Slimserver, only Squeezenet. Can I make use of your patches somehow anyway?

unfortunately, no. Even plugins are not an option with SqueezeNetwork. You
lose that kind of flexibility when you give up using your own pc.
