The Display Settings tab allows you to configure the Mirage on-screen display options. Your

monitor or TV display should be plugged into the DVI or HDMI ports on your MMS before

turning on the server.
 

The Screen Saver checkbox lets you enable or disable the built in screen saver on the MMS OSD.

When enabled, the MMS will show a photo slideshow of any pictures stored in its shared folder

for photos, and any subdirectories in that folder.
 

TIP:  You can find the shared folders using computers on your network with Windows Explorer (PC)

or Finder (Mac). You should see a server object with the name of your MMS. Double clicking it,

or expanding the list will reveal the shared folders for music and photos.
 

The Timeout lets you adjust the amount of time without user interaction before the screen

saver slideshow starts.
 

The Slideshow section allows you to further adjust the settings of the screen saver, including

transition and timing options of the photo slideshow.
 

1. Effect In: adjust the transition effect used when a new photo is displayed.
 

2. Effect Out: changes the transition effect used when a photo is about to be replaced with

a new one.
 

3. Overlap Effects: When this option is on, the Effect In for the new photo and Effect Out of the

old photo will be displayed at the same time.
 

4. Display Order: Allows you to change the order in which pictures are displayed. Available

options are random, by date: newest first, and by date: oldest first.
 

5. Picture Duration: the amount of time each photo will be displayed.
 

6. Scale: Changes how photos will be scaled to fit the available display resolution.
 

7. Show Now Playing: determines when the screen saver will yield back to the now playing page.

Available options are on queue change, on any queue or title change, or never (only when there

is user interaction).
 

8. Show Song Overlay: determines when the Now Playing overlay is displayed during the

photo slideshow.
