View Full Version : analog (& graphical) VU meter screensavers

I'm not sure when it happened, but it seems I've lost them.... I figure it was one of 6.5b1 upgrades back in April or May, but I don't remember for sure. I'm currently running a pre-split scanner 6.5b1 (from around 19 May) -- have these screensavers reappeared in subsequent 6.5b1 versions? Are they in 6.3?

It's a little thing, and not something that will cause me to upgrade or downgrade SS, but I do like those screensavers and was wondering if they're discontinued, or if they just temporarily disappeared in a few builds.

They're still there - do you not see the screen saver choices in settings?

Nope, I don't see them. The only options I have are:

Now Playing
Now Playing (Jump back on wake)
Date & Time Screensaver
RSS News Ticker
Weather, Date & Time (via a plugin)

I'm running SlimServer Version: 6.5b1 - 7461 - Debian - EN - iso-8859-1. Admittedly, it's an old beta, but I haven't yet made the MySQL plunge. I did just notice that I have the VU meters when playing SqueezeNetwork -- just not with slimserver.

Doh!! I hadn't realized that the VU meters were part of the Visualizer plugin, which I had turned off. All is well now.
