Any options for changing it?

Which "that" clock? There are 3 different clocks on the SBC (Settings > Screen > Screensavers). Classic works for me, YMMV and all that....

Ahh yes that is better, more functionable.

Ugliness is in the eye of the beholder (add as many exclamation marks as you feel is required). The analogue clock works for me.

I prefer the minimalist screen saver when nothing is playing...the blank screen :-). This way it doesn't contribute to glow of LED clocks in my kitchen.

I'm hoping we can get a nice superdatetime screensaver once the Duet becomes a full on receiver with 7.3, although the superdatetime plugin has occasional ugly problems of it's own in terms of some of those weather images.

Off for me too, just wish there was an alternative other than Flickr. I have just counted 6 clocks in my main room (PVR, Watch, Mobile, Wall clock, TV, DVD player).

Waiting patently for a decent RSS reader :)

What!?! You don't like my weather images? Which are you referring to? The color ones shown on Duet or the regular ones?

The images are nice, but the transparency looks terrible on anything but a white or very light background on the duet controller. You need to either make them a solid square or use PNG format which supports alpha transparency. If you must use GIF, then a simplified design would be better with the 1-bit transparency of GIF files.

I hear ya. I'm not a graphic artist so that kind of stuff is low priority to me. Feel free to contribute content!
