You can pretty much, there's an option in the client for how often it checks for updates. If the machine is to be on 24/7 then you just need to schedule the delay so that it updates at night. However this won't allow text based changes to go over instantly.

Steveg is correct, once the data is over it's only the changes that get pulled down. My xibo client is wireless and has a skynews feed. I've not noticed any drop in network or internet speed.
Finally 4x50mb presentations!!! wow, what are you putting in them!
If you want to show movie clips you could always put them locally on the client machine and use
or something similar. Then you can just modify the movies on the share and it should reload automatically, better still if you couple it with the meta refresh tag.
the 50MB presentations were his example. Occasionally they go higher if I get a lot of images to display. Generally they are closer to 10MB.
we have start using xibo only on one display so far but seems very good, we have alot of streams and widget from the internet so far so good, going to start playing with power point presentation at some point, we currently use one las boxes as well but were looking for some that easier to managed and rather than buying more one lan boxes that are expensive we using up old kit and xibo client doesnt need anything special. Plus i believe some files you put into the local xibo folder on the machine so it doesn't pull across the network.
