Hi All,

I'm opening a retail store and we're using 30 inch cinema displays for our menu boards. I'd like to use OS X's built-in "change desktop picture" to display our image, but would like it to change images every 1 second instead of 5.

Is there a way to modify the OS to do this?

Thanks,
- Mike

I don't know of a way to do this so I am sorry I can not answer your question, somebody else probably will. I just want to say that I think that using the 30inch screens as your menu boards is probably the coolest idea out there.

I would just like to add that I think maybe going the screen saver option might be better so that you don't see the menu bar or the icons...

the two 30 inch screens are going to running off the 1900 video card, as secondary monitors. the primary monitor is going to be off a 7300 video card. because the 30 inchers are secondary monitors, i don't believe that the menu bars will be visible.
