I think you could be right.
I took a working version and entered a non-existent image. The result was the black screen in IE although in Firefox the images that did exist were actually shown until the non-existent image was reached in the list.
Maybe Grandstand has removed an image in the folder and forgotten to update the playlist/xml file.
Or somebody stole it!!
Mind you it does say this about black screens in the wiki,
[code]NOTE: If you find that your Image Rotator is showing you a black screen with that spinning
progress icon, chances are pretty good that it can’t actually find your images. Try using the full URL
for the images between those tags in your playlist.xml file.
