OSD clock in TV and Video (1 Viewer)

Hi, I have one simple request:

I would like to have a clock showing the current time in the OSD of TV and Video.

I know there is a clock on the start page of media portal. But when you're watching TV and wait for another program to start or you have to leave at a particular time or whatever it would be very convenient to just check the time in the OSD.

Best regards,
Malte

If I understand you correctly, you want a clock to pop up when showing the OSD for the currently playing program?

This is integrated into several skins as far as I know, I myself use StreamedMP, which has a clock in the top left hand corner on all menus and in the OSD.

In StreamedMP, the clock is hidden when watching fullscreen video (live TV, moving pictures, MP-TV series). I want the clock showing all the time, so if I'm watching something, and want to know the time, I don't have to show the OSD.
Since posting, I have figured out how to do it for StreamedMP, but it would be nice for it to be an optional feature of the skin.

FYI I achieved this by having a windows Clock gadget on my desktop, but selecting it to "always be on top". I played with the opaque setting so its visible but not too noticeable.

I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version.

No this setting is disabled I have disabled this as suggested. I doubt it will change anything but I will give it a go. I was hoping that the supplied log files "might" pinpoint the issue?
