    SB2/3 remote control up/down button function

    Everyone,

    I currently use SB2/3s with both the old style Slimdevices remote and the newer "candy bar" Logitech remote. Recently I "lost" my SDT screensaver display. I made online searches, checked LMS settings and did much fiddling with the buttons on the remote. I finally found that, with the SB off, pushing the up or down button of the remote brought the SDT display back. GREAT, I had my screensaver back!!

    But I have a question. I also found that if I pressed the up or down button multiple times, 8 to be exact, that I would get 4 lit displays and 4 blank screens; interestingly, while 3 of the lit displays were the same 1 display had different sunrise/sunset times and rain chance percentage. So I have a question. What is the screen displaying when I am pressing the up/down remote key when the SB is turned off? Does anyone know?

    Thanks,

    Missing data?

    In my experience SDT will in some cases display almost nothing if you scroll to a screen for which it has no data. For instance my locally modified copy can fetch current weather but not forecasts, so I see very empty screens if I scroll, as it tries to display nonexistent forecast data when I do.

    peterw,

    There is no missing data in the 4 lit displays but 1 of them does have different information shown; sunset/sunrise times and chance of rain percentage.

    If the up/down keys are displaying SDT data is there somewhere that shows or allows setting of the information that will be shown in each of the 8 display screens; lit and unlit?
