Widgets are useful items that are displayed on the IMC video out or an iQ system touch screen when the system is idle. These include what is currently playing, time & date, weather, stocks, and web cameras.  To turn on a Widget for display set the "Active" value to "Yes". To turn off a Widget set the "Active" value to "No".  Setting the display time (in seconds) will determine how long the widget is displayed before it cycles to the next available widget.
