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,


Okay, thanks for the hint, now I've got clocks all over the place.

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.
