View Full Version : Slimserver 5.3 beta cannot change size in "Power Off"

I've attached the file. There is only one line changed and two added as
follows:

# playing display modes
now_playing = dead
now_playing.single = playdisp_toggle
now_playing.hold = datetime

I got this from a posting on this list quite a while ago so I imagine
other people may be using it as well.

I don't believe that the problem is with the custom.map change, per se.
That has nothing to do with the size button. I believe that the old
default.map (which custom.map is based on) causes the problem with 5.3.
I put the same changes in the new default.map and it works fine.

The other problem (that made the first problem obvious) is that the 5.3
install changed all (4 units) small displays to large and vice-versa. I
don't think this has anything to do with the map.

I'm not aware of this problem. Can you share your custom map so we can
make sure it works right?
