Hi everyone - A little while back I installed the screensaver that was announced a few years back by "cr-mattias" here - http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=35267

It works great, but....

There was originally integration with slimserver to feature 'now playing' details, but that doesn't seem to work on my setup. I get the screen display of changing album art (which is great), but nothing about what is currently playing. I guess this may be because the author hasn't been able to keep the screensaver up to date.

The screensaver is available from here http://www.crayonroom.com/screensaver.php, with a forum also available from that page. But.... posts are moderated before display, and the moderator doesn't seem to be at home :-(

Has anyone been able to use the 'now playing' feature on current squeezebox server and windows PCs? If so, do you have any tips that I could try?

My set up uses Squeezebox Duet, SqueezeCenter 7.3.3, Windows Vista with Server HTTP Port Number: 9000 and Command Line Interface port number 9090
