The Calendar Schedule
|Top Previous Next|
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:
