How do I modify slideshow / sliding panel behavior?

Hey Experts:

I have placed a slideshow on a page I'm designing - and used a sliding panels plugin that allows changing pics AND text / links.  The plugin has done a pretty good job  - I have a slideshow and it's formatted the way I want it to be - but I don't like the jerkiness of it.  I'd like to modify just a few things:

I'd like more than 5 seconds between changes - I've tried playing with an interval setting with no luck.

I'd like a fade or slower transition.

I'd like the show to play through the last slide, go back to the beginning and stop.

I know nothing - nada about jquery or javascript, so any solution would have to be spoon fed....  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  The page is up for building / testing at http://tendigitpublishing.com/joecraine/

Just open the file "dmxSlidingPanels.js" in Javascript and change the numbers in the beggining of the file:

var frictionDefaults={fast:0.9,normal:0.95,slow:0.97};var durationDefaults={fast:200,normal:400,slow:600};

write something like
var frictionDefaults={fast:0.9,normal:0.95,slow:0.97};var durationDefaults={fast:600,normal:1000,slow:2000};

the numbers are in milliseconds. That should do it ;)

I tried modifying the duration defaults and could see no difference.  However... I looked further down in the .js file and found the AutoPlayInterval command.  I changed it to 10000, and that solved the first issue.  I also found an AutoPlayReverse command that, when switched to false, stopped the slides after showing all 1 time.  Not the greatest hack, but I think I can work with it.

Still no solution for the fade behavior....  any ideas?
