Hi,

Is there any way to get the SB3 display to automatically dim at night and then automatically turn to the brightest setting in the day?

Thanks,
grimholtz

you could probably write a plugin for it.. but I'm more likely to write a cron job that would send commands to the CLI port.

Well, I'm hoping this plugin (http://www.gwendesign.com/slimserver/dev_software.htm#autodisplay) does what I want. It's a little unclear though. The interface looks like this:

"Set brightness level" -- does that mean when dimmed or when undimmed? (display on/off)

The AutoDisplay plugin should do what you want.
You can set the brightness level for a temporary amount of time.
The Set Brightness Level setting is only in effect during the time you select.

Auto Dim Display is what you want (is that what someone else said?)

I have it setup to dim ALL devices in the house at 10:30PM and come back on at 6:00AM, right before the alarm goes off! WORKS GREAT.

I'm not sure where I got it, but you can always search the list for it.

I have it, but it doesn't work for me. Does it matter I have Player Settings->Display->Automatic Display Brightness set to in SlimServer? (Adjust Brightness Automatically or Adjust Brightness Manually). What does that setting do, anyway?

Ahh. The latest V0.82 got a typo.
Easy fix and one will be posted soon.
If you cannot wait use the one I have attached.

You should see the AutoDisplay preferences in the player settings plugin page.
