Is there any simple way for a NON-PROGRAMMER to get the Soundbridge M1000 to scroll news or weather? All I can find so far are references to PERL and other such programs I know nothing about.
It is simple to run a perl script, you don't need to be a programmer. For windows there are three simple steps (as I posted on another topic in this forum)
1) Install perl from Activestate:

(Click on "Free download")
2) Install any modules needed using the ppm utility that comes with perl (the program you are trying to run will tell you what modules you need, either in the documentation, or in the error messages when it crashes
3) run the program using "perl programname
There might be some additional setup, depending on the program, but really no programming skills are required....
