    When does RSS Newsfeed refresh ?

    Hi,
    i am planning to bring custom informations on my SB2 with a own RSS Newsfeed. When i started with testing, i figured out, that my SB2 does not refresh his news every time, the screensaver starts. Does anybody know, when and how often the Slimserver/SB2 refreshes the Newsfeed informations ???
    Thanks

    30 minutes -- it's hard-coded in Plugins/RSSNews.pm (along with a
    request not to lower that value).

    every hour... (more often than that risks a ban from one of the default feeds)

    Plugins/RssNews.pm line 100:
    my $refresh_sec = 60 * 60;

    -kdf

    might be a 6.1 thing.

    same line, 30 is cutting it pretty close though. Slashdot was banning
    a fair number of users (including myself) becuase of the rss plugin.
    Seems to be ok now.
