Like many here, I've set up my SB to scroll newscasts (e.g. BBC and NYT) while music is playing. While I've figured out how to speed up the rate at which the banner scrolls, it's quite juddery and I can't see any way of rectifying this. Does anyone know of any tweaks to improve it?
Cheers,
Gus

This are the settings that I use:

Single Line Scroll Rate: 0.03
Double Size Scroll Rate: 0.03

Single Line Scroll Pause: 1.2
Double Size Scroll Pause: 1

Single Line Scroll Pixels: 2
Double Size Scroll Pixels: 3

I get a very smooth scrolling with the above settings!

I tried those settings and it looks very good. Is there any way to get the player to use these same settings while connected to Squeezenetwork? It's still kind of jumpy when it scrolls there.

Much better! Thanks for the tip!

We don't allow changing the scrolling rate on SN, smoother scrolling puts too much load on the server.

OK, that makes sense. Thanks.

The settings recommended above used to work quite nicely on my SB3. Since moving to 7.5.5 the scrolling doesn't have the same smooth display. Anyone have any idea what may help get smooth scrolling again?
