RSS Twitter feeds repeats on every screen load
« on: December 12, 2011, 06:36:59 PM »
Hello community,

I'm trying to set up a nifty little script for our lobby. At the bottom I have an RSS feed from our Twitter account scrolling horizontally from right to left all CNN style. This works fairly well except that every time a new screen loads, the RSS feed resets to the beginning.

I tried putting different screens on one campaign as well as creating several campaigns and using a common channel. Neither seemed to work, the moment a new screen is selected the twitter feed (RSS) goes back to the first entry.

Any options?

you have 2 options
1.) Make the timeline longer...   effectively making the looptime longer  before the feed is reset.


2.)  Use a common channel do that the feed never reloads.
