- #time will give the MMMd, HH:mm format.
This took a while to find out what was going on, as I'd forgotten all about this one!
This is possibly correct based on the logs. When you go into advanced configuration, you need to click 'ok' to save th advanced configuration. The ExternalDisplay_iMONLCD.xml file will then appear. Does the file actually exist?

The reason for the non-blank display and restart of frontview is because the shutdown is trapping an error. I might have to put in some logging to find out exactly what is going on ... please bear with me.
On the clean install crashing. This is because for some reasons the CommonGBPVRUtilities.dll file was omitted from the new installer. I'll post a new version when I sort out these other problems, but in the meantime, installing this dll into the GBPVR folder will solve that configuration crash. Sorry.
