a few things to try:
a different font
move dti to a different place on the screen
do any other pages on the advanced ini blink?0

I tried another font and the same thing happened.
Doing several tests I have discovered that only the first line fails, I have solved it by adding the following first:

Ok. Most curious. I haven’t seen that so I don’t really have a way to resolve it. Good you found a workaround though.0

i am facing the same issue.
All displayed lines are blinking in alternating timeframes.
Tried already the hint from Eduardo without any luck:COMMENT=text:,font-size:50%
I tried to reduce the lines already for troubleshooting but even if i only display the hostname it is blinking all ~15-30sek
Maybe any other ideas?

I’m guessing it might be related to Windows device messages. DTI responds to a number of Windows messages including:
WM_DEVICECHANGE -> DBT_CONFIGCHANGED
All of these trigger an ini file reload and you would see the display flicker.
I don’t see this on any of my test machines so I’ll need you to run a special debug build to test my theory. Let me know if you want to do that.
And anyone else for that matter.1+

I found a thing in the text display routines that could cause blinking in some circumstances.0

here is our ini file:

Sure Glenn, just let me know what is needed for the debug from my side.

Try this build:
Specifically looking for general text flickering and the bar chart redrawing.0

I have tested the new version on different clients and different OS
The blinking affect is now better but still visible on all lines from time to time.

I’ve tested in dozens of situations including every version of Windows from 2000 through to 1909, server editions, on physical machines and virtual machines, on local and remote access. I’ve discovered a few cases where I can see the blinking.
So I started making a few changes and two weeks later have completely rewritten the display routines and ended up with something that totally eliminates the blinking, flickering etc.
Now I can get back to the normal scheduled programming. Look for a release next week.
