View Full Version : SB1 VU Meters in Slim Server 6.5

I recently upgraded my Slim Server to version 6.5. I had been running Slim Server 6.21. After working through all the tagging problems, I have just one issue.

I own a SB2 and a SB1. The problem is that since I upgraded, I cannot get Analog VU Meters to show up on my SB1. I usually have the VU meters set as my "Now Playing" screensaver but now all the SB1 says is: Squeezebox 2 Required

Any way to have this work? It works fine obviously on the SB2. It would be nice to have Analog VU meters work on both the SB1 and SB2 that are using the same Slim Server.

That message is true. the VU is a firmware-based graphic and therefore
does indeed require an SB2. There is a bug filed for removing
scrensaver items that don't work for the selected player, but a fix
hasn't been implemented to date.

SB1 has been at FW version 40 for 2 years. VU meters were never part
of the SB1 firmware. Only SB2 onward.
