Hi,

 

Just something I have just tried to do, is set the screensaver in Emby Theatre. Settings > General > Display > Screensaver

The options are: None, Logo or Backdrop.

 

Would it be possible to use the Photos Library?

 

Background.

 

I am configuring to replace my old Windows 7 MCE box, the Screen saver of our family photos comes up a lot while the TV is left on.

We often find ourselves sitting and watching at times.

It's a really nice way to just view random family images.

 

Thanks.

 

Nathan

Great idea.  This was an option in the old Samsung client and the wife really misses it

Hi gents, Just a quick word to say thanks to the Emby team. The photo screensaver is now working on ET and it is really appreciated.

 

For now we don't have options to control it but I'm sure you will include some in near future like the start delay...

 

Another point to consider, I find that the photos always fill the entire screen which imply to be focused. The consequence is that we only see cropped pictures. I would prefer to have the original size of picture using black bar on side or top depending of the rotation of them.

 

 

Great thanks
