    RE: SBG clock screensaver and Digital out issues.

    Ahh, my plan is working - confusion reigns!!!

    But Seriously....
    Clock display issue is NOT working on the SB2. (If I swap out the SB2 for
    my recently displaced SBG all works as one would expect.)
    The issue is seen both with the screensaver and while off.

    Andrew
    BTW - I REALLY appreciate the speed of you guys on these things! THANKS!

    Ok, now I'm a little confused. The display clock issue is on a SBG?
    Does it work on your SB2?

    And it sounds like it happens with the DateTime screensaver. Does it
    also stop when the player is powered off?

    (Sean will be commenting on the digital out issue... Vidur on the
    visualizer...)

    SBG clock screensaver and Digital out issues.

    OK, I thought I'd have a go at playing with the vis settings, but I must be
    doing something dumb. I've tried editing the slim/player/squeezebox2.pm
    file, but it's not having any effect. Do I need to do anything other than
    restart the server after an edit? I'm guessing that there's a deployment
    step I'm missing somewhere (I'm new to slimserver development). BTW -
    running on XP.

    The visualizers are configurable from the server, though we haven't yet
    created a UI for this. If you're feeling particularly bold, you can modify
    the configuration parameters in the server source. The parameters for the
    right-side visualizer in the Now Playing modes are in
    Slim/Player/Squeezebox2.pm and those for the full-screen visualizers are in
    Plugins/Visualizer.pm. The configuration parameters (including position,
    orientation, bandwidth, etc.) are documented in the first file.

    The spectrum analyzer is implemented using a simple fixed-point FFT with a
    Hamming window applied to the signal. Since most real-world audio has
    considerably more power in the lower frequency bands, one of the
    configurable parameters is a preemphasis value applied to the frequency bins
    after the FFT (effectively a multiplier for the higher frequency
    bins) - the value is specified in dB/KHz.

    I've spent a little bit of time playing with the parameters to get something
    that looks reasonably good (and that's the eventual goal, right?). If
    anyone, ideally someone with a better aesthetic sense than I, is interested
    in experimenting and coming up with better parameters, or even a UI for
    users to configure their own parameters, I'd welcome the changes.

    On Windows, SlimServer is packaged as an executable that bundles the
    Perl packages that we use. To make source modifications, you need to
    have an ActiveState Perl installation
    (http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActivePerl/) and will need to run
    the server via the slimserver.pl script.

    Thought it must be something like that - thanks!

    SBG clock screensaver and Digital out issues.

    What aboute the datetime screensaver issue? Is there a solution for
    that? I noticed yesterday that the time doesn't update when I use the
    datetime screensaver when the player is switched off (d-mode's point 1
    all the way at the top)...

    Thanks, jan

    Works for me and has always worked. I've only used nightlies and SVN
    trunks, though.

    Jan,
    The issue was fixed for me by installing 6.02 on the server.
