View Full Version : Displaying time of day in Now Playing

Has anybody tried to modify SlimServer to display the current time? Either as part of the Elapsed Time / Remaining Time or as a different mode altogether?

There's plenty of screen real estate left on the SB3; the right side would be my first choice.

Which perl modules handle that?

(btw, I've been able to add the TOD to line1 of the RSS news ticker, but I can't get it to work with Now Playing.)

Is it possible to submit an enhancement request?

thanks,

Use my MusicInfoSCR as a replacement or inspiration on how it could be
done.

I don't know much German, but I think the appropriate phrase here is "Tausend dank!"

I think that's _very_ correct German indeed. We don't use it in
Switzerland ;-)
