Say I'd like to have the screensaver on my Squeezebox display the time in big full-screen numbers, like the standard Date/Time display does when its size is maximized -- but next to that, in smaller type, display the date, like:

SAT
26
NOV

off to the side.

What's the easiest way I can get it to do that sort of thing? I'm running SC7.

Thanks!

this _might_ be possible with the latest MusicInfoSCR screensaver, using customized format strings for the date.

Thanks -- I didn't see that plugin in the official plugins list, but now I've found it and installed it.

So far I can't get it to work in "off" mode without prominently displaying the "Nothing" that's currently playing. But assuming I get over that hurdle, how would one go about creating custom format strings?
