Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Have tried all possible settings in Display - Brightness and Screensavers. No solution there. Screensavers in power Off offers only one choice - None. I have never seen an option for Date & Time. Doesn't it sync with the PC it's reading?
A few months ago I upgraded my home Wi-Fi network and therefore needed to reconnect all of the devices using the new network ID & PW. Devices use a Windows 7 PC. When I reconnected the Squeezebox, the clock was gone! The screen is totally blank with power off. However, the clock keeps perfect time, the alarm works, and if I hit snooze in the power off position, the clock displays for about 5 seconds. AFAIK, the unit works perfectly except for the clock problem.
There is no single switch to turn off all screensavers. They must be turned off individually. I did what you suggested and still found no reference to Date & Time.
When I upgraded nothing else was changed and no new equipment was linked. BTW, I also have a Squeezebox Radio connected via the network, and its clock is still displayed. As I mentioned, the clock displays for about 5 seconds if i hit the snooze button while the unit is turned off. The clock doesn't, and never did display when it is turned on.
I did read your reply yesterday, but haven't had time to address all the issues.
These units are on a wireless Wi-Fi network, not a LAN. The Boom is maybe 7 or 8 years old.
Will try to get back to you tomorrow with the Boom-Radio settings comparison.
OK. The SB Radio has an option under "Settings" called "Screen".
Screen has an option called "Date & Time". Those options only address choice of format of clock & date display. Another Screen option is "Brightness". None of these options include a setting to turn off the clock (nor is there any on the SC Boom).
First, the brightness settings have all been at brightest throughout our dialog, and prior to it.
Second, choosing the "myswitchbox.com" setting enables me to choose date & time display for SB off and the clock does appear. However, it appears only in the smallest type (it always had been displayed in the largest) and the type size setting to large does not change the date & time setting. Moreover, when you return to the setting menu NOT accessed through "my switchbox.com", the clock disappears!
We seem to be on the right track, but we're not there yet.
Typo - should have been mysqeezebox.com. If you want a laugh, check out squeezebox.com on the web.
When you power up SB, you may either be in a menu within the unit or one in the "mysqueezebox.com", which is a choice selectable from the above menu that I have chosen to call "NOT accessed through, etc." It attaches to whichever menu you were using when you last powered off . The two menus' options are very similar, but the whole arrangement is unnecessarily complicated IMHO.
Since last week I've received three messages from your system asking me to rate your performance so you can get paid and asking if I have other questions for another $24. These messages offer no way to continue the conversation or notify someone that we're not finished. I certainly don't hold you personally responsible for this, but my confidence in the system, which is awkward to use, is declining.
IYou said, "go into the "menu NOT accessed through [etc.]", and see if the date/time size can be adjusted there, to be larger. Then, once it is adjusted to be larger when the SQbox is still On, switch to the other menu - see if..." But that menu is the one we've been dealing with since the beginning and we know that your suggestions don't work. It would be helpful if you could observe the total set of menu options and understand how they work. There are at least 40 options in the total menu structure, some of which are duplicates which produce different results.
I have one new observation. In the menu accessed through "mysqueezebox.com" screensaver for SB idle is the full size date & time. Accessing the same option in the other menu does not.
