So I've been a little layed up with a cold/flu, and trying to tweak the settings on my system some. Downloaded and installed the Super Date/Time plug in, and the Music Info plug in. Like very much

My SB3 is in the living room, with my Mini that's the server, and I've been able to get it set-up pretty well on that. But I've failed miserably to get it working well on the Boom I use in the bedroom, and the SB2 in the workshop I have some issues with as well. The Boom seems to require a very different set-up since I guess the screen is a different size? And now, when I have a radio station on, there are 2 strings that try to display, one fixed and one scrolling.

Can anyone walk me through the right way to get everything configured, and the right settings for when you have 3 different devices attached?

Hope that makes sense - may have slightly od'd the cough syrup -

SuperDateTime display settings are per-player, in settings under
"Player->[Your Boom]->SuperDateTime".

My settings on the Boom are as follows - it's the settings near the
top under "TIME/WEATHER FORMAT STRINGS" that matter.

Reading from left to right and top to bottom across the fields, I have:

* Off
* On
* "" (blank)
* %y:%v
* %Z
* %e%1
* PREC %x

The "display 2" fields underneath don't make any difference as the
Boom only has one display.

The above settings are for a mix of data from Weather.com and Weather
Underground, in metric, so the specific format specifiers above might
need a tweak for you.

Hope that's of some use.
