Yeah, I don't think it's the squeezebox... considering I have two and they
both do it... and I have two receivers and only one does it.

However, I'd point out two more things:
--it happens on both my receivers so it's not that terribly rare.
--and, I can't imagine the squeezebox has to send a wireless signal for
every click of the animation. That is, I get the noise when the large text
is scrolling.



Thanks,
Phillip
