I have no technical ability to create them (is this the best forum for
suggestions/feature requests?) but with the new graphic squeezebox there are
great possibilities:

1) sine wave or some kind of smooth dynamic motion
2) fake computer graphics aka. The original star trek: pulsing random
squares
3) equalizer bars

Much the same here, but it anyone is looking for more ideas for a plugin
then a karaoke bouncing-ball-over-the-words lyrics display would be cool.

What I would like is the ability to have a user configurable standby
display by using simple variables. Some variable would point to
information services, such as weather.com or the BBC news ticker.

For example:

Line1: $ddd $mmm $yy $hh:$mm:$ss
Line2: High/Low: $tempH/&tempL e-mails: $MailCount
