SOS' Control Window
This window, found on the main screen of SOS will allow you to control how overlays and blackouts are handled in SOS.

Main Buttons

Place overlay – Manually force an overlay event. Clicking on the buttons from 5 to 60 seconds forces an overlay event of that duration. Useful for testing SOS initially.

Edit overlays – allows you to view the list of overlays in SOS. See Overlay window for details.

Stop overlay – if SOS is busy overlaying content, you can click this button to cause SOS to abort the current overlaying process.

Force update – forces SOS to communicate with StreamAds immediately and update its local list of overlays.

  • Note: SOS only updates 10 items at a time.

Force download – forces SOS to immediately start downloading the next pending advertisement to the local harddisk.

Verify overlays – verifies that all the downloaded files actually exist on the local harddrive. SOS will delete any entries from the database if the advertisement no longer exists, and most likely re-download them. You should only click this button if you have deleted some of the local advertisements from your harddisk.

Schedule Blackouts – this will bring up the Schedule Blackouts interface window.

Stop Blackout – if SOS is currently busy with a blackout, clicking the button will cause SOS to abort the blackout.
