Is there anyway to make an auto updating bug that will show the date and time on it? We use our VT for City council meetings and use the dates to let people know when this meeting took place while its on the air. any help would be great.

There is a third-party product, Data Overlayer (http://www.youngmonkey.ca/hands/restaurant/plugins/DataOverlayer/index.html) that might do what you need.

so I take it there is no way to do this within VT4?

Data Overlayer does the overlay within the VT. It can draw data from numerous sources (databases, etc.) and keep itself updated while creating the overlay in VT.

Something tells me that if you are really creative you could set another computer to Screen Saver with the clock and bring it in with iVGA but I think Pauls answer would be much better.

would this program take up the DSK? or would I still be able to have the dsk avail to other overlays
