Squeezebox Plugin Screensaver

I just started the trial for the Squeezebox plugin after updating to HS3 about a year or so ago and previously using the HS2 version of the plugin. I never used the screensaver in the old version (was it even a feature), but now that my former favorite squeezebox screensaver (weather, date and time) is no longer available with the latest version of logitech media server, I wanted to use HomeSeer to send weather info to my Booms via weatherxml and this plugin.

I pasted the code for "Screensaver 1" from the plugin documentation into my ini file, but the only thing that shows up is the bottom text, in a really big font. It also only shows up when I scroll the screensaver, but not as the default screen when the screensaver is set to come on (in my case, when the device is powered off). I get a normal clock when powered off.

EDIT: Nevermind, I see had the fonts set wrong in LMS. I got it working using this code... a bit of a challennge becuase the narrow boom screen wants to scroll
Code:
[ScreenSaver 1]
Icon=$INI:weatherxml\weatherinfo:weatherInfo1:ConditionIcon
IconText1=L $$GV:wxmlTLow_1
IconText2=H $$GV:wxmlTHigh_1
IconText3=C $$GV:wxmlTemp_1
TopText=$$GV:wxmlCond_1
BottomText=%t
TickerText=
OverlayText=

Tweaked my ini settings a bit to use devices for today's forecast hi/low using devices instead of hig/low so far using variables.

However, with both these and the former settings, my icon is not updating:

Code:
[ScreenSaver 1]
Icon=$INI:weatherXML\weatherinfo:WeatherInfo1:ConditionIcon
IconText1=C $$GV:wxmlTemp_1
IconText2=H $$DXC:z1
IconText3=L $$DXC:z2
TopText=$$GV:wxmlCond_1
BottomText=%t
TickerText=
OverlayText=
When I check weatherinfo.ini the ConitionIcon is changing, however, it never changes on the screensaver. The screensaver has been on the overcast icon since day one, even though the actual condition (wxmlCond_1) updates just fine.
