Title: Daytime dependent BackgroundLight brightness
Post by: atlanx on October 31, 2010, 03:10:36 PM
It would be nice if the BackgroundLight brightness could be set
by time slots of day.

Example

00:00 to 6:00 : low

6:00 to 8:00 : middle bright

8:00 to 18:00 : very bright

18:00 to 20:00 : less bright

20:00 to 00:00 : low

Because if i set my Sansa e200 Backgroundlight to max at day i'm happy but in night it burns out my eyes.

You can easily create different .cfg files to achieve this.
You won't be able to load them automatically though, you'll have to do that manually.

This is a nice feature but for now ... I use QuickScreen and assign backlight to Up/Dn

Automatic switching of the brightness would be great. Most of the time I use the lowest brightness because higher brightness is too strong in a dark but when I am outside in a sunny weather it is not possible to see anything on the display. Blind switching of the brightness is difficult.

I think the Quick Screen is the best solution for changing brightness levels.  Ambient light depends on much more than just time of day.  For example, at mid-day I could walk from a dark room into full daylight.
