Problem displaying web pages with meta-refresh

I am displaying a version of http://www.syssrc.com/solar/broken.shtml on our digital sign. It worked fine with an older Xibo install. I upgraded to 1.7.5 (client and server) and now the layout “gets stuck” when the old page (above) comes up in the timeline.

The web page includes an I-FRAME which points to a script which updates our current conventional and solar energy usage every 15 seconds.

I experimented and found that as long a the time the webpage is displayed is shorter than the meta-refresh time, there is no problem.

I changed the webpage to refresh on a cycle that is slower than the time we display the sign, and the problem is masked.

This bug was fixed in 1.7.6. It was reported here. Apologies for the delay in getting back to you.
