    LMS not reacting on screensaver delay (anymore)?

    I noticed that my system does not react on the delay setting of the screensaver anymore:
    I use analog VU as screensaver.
    When playing, my devices used to 1st show the Tilte (Artist) and then after a delay (x seconds as set in 'Grundeinstellungen'), the screensaver (i.e. analog VU) were kicking in.

    Initially I thought its only SqueezeAmp doing this, but I double checked now and its also my other devices (SB3's).

    So, its either my setup, of LMS.
    Currently, I am using LMS 8.0, but I think this was also the case with LMS 7.9

    Anybody else having this issue?

    @mherger: Do you have some troubleshooting advice? Any logging that would be helpful?

    Have you tried restarting everything? You never know.

    Rebooting did not help.
    Oddly, when I connect my SB3s to my Pi-Based System (LMS 7.9), screensaver works as expected!

    So, it could be my setup, or Arm vs Intel System, LMS 8 vs 7.9, or...?

    -> Pointers for logging / ts would be great.

    In case somebody else runs into this problem:

    I found the issue - it was an interaction with the plug-in 'custom clock helper':
    I had it set up a long time ago with a webpage as background (http://static.die.net/moon/480.jpg)
    That site changed to https recently and since then was not accessible anymore (also not using https://static... https is probably not supported by the Plaug-In)

    Anyway. Removing this webpage as a background fixed my screensaver delay.
    Strange interactions, though.
