I just installed the new display upgrade to my squeezebox two days ago.
It is gorgeous, and I get excited about the possibilities for future
eye-candy that is now possible.

I do have one problem though. Yesterday (after a day or so operation,
which it was switched off), the screen got scrambled comletely. I took
some pictures of the state, but the static pictures do not
justification, as some of the dots were just randomly blinking. I have
read a similar report here earlier, but I cannot find the thread now,
and I cannot remember what was the outcome of that one. I know Dean
asked for some photos. The soft reset (PWR button held) did not fix the
corruption, but the hard one (power cord remove-reinsert) did.

To illustrate the dynamic nature of this problem I took a short movie
this morning. The SBG scrambled itself again, to a much lesser extent.
The strangest thing happened during the filming. The display restored
itself! Without me even touching it...

Anyway I have uploaded the pictures to:

Hi Peter,

What version of SlimServer and Squeezebox firmware are you using?

If you're using the v5.3.0b1 release or v5.2.1, could you try this with
the latest nightly build of SlimServer and see if it improves?

If you're already running 5.3.0b1+ could you also try forgetting that
player? (It seems to be using the old font...)

You can get the nightly here:

Thanks,
Kevin P.
