The Calendar Schedule

Top  Previous  Next

The calendar schedule is part of the schedule, saying which shows should be played when.  The other part of the schedule is the weekly schedule.

 

The difference between these two parts of the schedule is that the weekly schedule allows you to specify shows that should be played by the Light-O-Rama Show Player on a recurring, weekly basis, while the calendar schedule allows you to specify shows that should be played by the Show Player once, at a specific date and time.  For example, the weekly schedule would be used to have a show run every Thursday between 5:00 PM and 10:00 PM, while the calendar schedule would be used to have a show playing specifically on Christmas Eve.

 

Both parts of the schedule are created and modified using the Light-O-Rama Schedule Editor, and shows in them are played at the scheduled times by the Light-O-Rama Show Player (assuming that "Enable Schedule" has been turned on in the Light-O-Rama Control Panel).  The Show Player, when deciding whether a show should be played, will first check the calendar schedule, and only play a show from the weekly schedule if none is scheduled for the current date and time in the calendar schedule.

 

The following picture shows the calendar schedule, with a show named "Christmas Eve.lss" scheduled to be run on December 24, 2007 from 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM:
