    MVP loses connection

    I have had an odd issue that I think it attributed to this plugin.

    I like to listen to use the MVP/GBPVR combo to listen to netradio and have pictures showing in the background.

    I can do this by choosing my NetRadio station and then going to the picture library plugin, choose a directory, and choose slideshow. This works fine.

    When I saw this plugin I said "cool now I can just choose a the picture slideshow screensaver and which will save me about 5 button clicks (and may even be simple enough for the wife to use) since the screensaver will automatically run through the pictures.

    However, after setting this up and getting it to work (ie going to netradio connecting and letting the picture slideshow screen saver kick in) I noticed some odd behavior. After about 15 or 20 minutes the MVP will disconnect and reconnect (losing my netradio session). This does not happen if I use netradio and the picture library. Also if I let the screen saver/picture slideshow go, it seems to run fine all by itself (no reconnects).

    I check the log files and did not see anything specific that would indicate what is going on (of course I could be checking the wrong log file).

    Any ideas?

    I'm afraid I don't have an MVP setup to test, but will try it on the PC later today.

    If you can reproduce the problem, zip and attach gbpvr.exe.log and I will take a look. Does the MVP still disconect if you use one of the other screen savers, clock for example?

    Here is the error log

    I will try it with the clock and see if I have the same problem.

    The clock screen saver works fine

    It appears the problem on occurs on the picture slide show plugin.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    screen saver kicks-in, even though disabled

    The screen saver kicks-in, even though I have it disabled. I had to remove the dll from the plugins directory to get it to stop.

    If you mean by 'disabled' you have unticked from the plugins list in the config app all this would do is stop it from appearing in the main menu list (just like any other plugin).

    To no longer use it as a screen saver you must edit the ScreenSaverPlugin line in config.xml to
    Code:
    <ScreenSaverPlugin>Simple Screen Saver</ScreenSaverPlugin>

    FIXED - Hi, I'm 98.13b and I can't even get this plugin to display in the config app. I have changed the config.xml and restarted several times.

    Fix - Didn't have the UI Elements Library installed. Not sure how I've been getting along without it.

    Very nice plugin! Can support for Net Radio be added to the Now Playing Screen Saver?
