Dynamic Display Block not showing

I have done a fairly simple Drupal website, with a slideshow on the home page. I have set up dynamic display block with a bunch of images,  I use this module all the times, but it just doesn't show up. I have set the permissions, the images are in the correct spot, I can see them in Firebug.  I cannot figure out what is wrong.
Until I get this working, I have the slide show set up on a test page, as this is now a live site:

You can see the big empty space where it should be. The weird thing is that this is a sister site to:
http://www.concordfuneral.com/
and I am using the SAME theme (litejazz) and the same webhost, so I don't think it is a configuration issue. They have the same modules and functionality.
I have never used Firebug for stepping through the Javascript to see if there is an error somewhere that impacts this slide show. I don't knoiw how to do that. Maybe there is a conflict with something else.

Hi,
sorry I have no experience with Drupal, but there is one difference.

On the working site, there is this Drupal Settings extension:
jQuery.extend(Drupal.settings, {"basePath":"\u002F", "pathPrefix":"", "ajaxPageState":{"theme":"litejazz", "theme_token":"1glCj2JdCzqVY28aM_kYvZZUHj29dsZ_5V73xityRiE", "js":{"misc\u002Fjquery.js":1, "misc\u002Fjquery.once.js":1, "misc\u002Fdrupal.js":1, "misc\u002Fui\u002Fjquery.effects.core.min.js":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Flibraries\u002Fjquery.cycle\u002Fjquery.cycle.all.js":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fmodules\u002Fddblock\u002Fjs\u002Fjson2.pack.js":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fmodules\u002Fddblock\u002Fjs\u002Fddblock.js":1}, "css":{"modules\u002Fsystem\u002Fsystem.base.css":1, "modules\u002Fsystem\u002Fsystem.menus.css":1, "modules\u002Fsystem\u002Fsystem.messages.css":1, "modules\u002Fsystem\u002Fsystem.theme.css":1, "modules\u002Fcomment\u002Fcomment.css":1, "modules\u002Ffield\u002Ftheme\u002Ffield.css":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fmodules\u002Fmollom\u002Fmollom.css":1, "modules\u002Fnode\u002Fnode.css":1, "modules\u002Fsearch\u002Fsearch.css":1, "modules\u002Fuser\u002Fuser.css":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fmodules\u002Fckeditor\u002Fckeditor.css":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fmodules\u002Fctools\u002Fcss\u002Fctools.css":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fmodules\u002Fddblock\u002Fcss\u002Fddblock.css":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fthemes\u002Flitejazz\u002Fstyle.css":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fthemes\u002Flitejazz\u002Fcss\u002Fred.css":1, "sites\u002Fall\u002Fthemes\u002Flitejazz\u002Fcss\u002Flocal.css":1}}, "ddblockImageContainer":{"1":{"block":"1", "contentContainer":"div.slide", "imageContainerHeight":"327", "imageContainerWidth":"770", "setDimensions":"none"}}, "ddblockImages":{"1":{"block":"1", "contentContainer":"div.slide", "imageHeight":"327", "imageWidth":"770", "setDimensions":"none"}}, "ddblockContent":{"1":{"block":"1", "nrOfItems":2, "setDimensions":"none", "contentContainer":"div.slide", "custom":"", "fx":"fade", "easeOut":"linear", "easeIn":"linear", "speed":"500", "timeOut":"5000", "pause":"1", "next":"0", "overflow":"hidden", "pager":"none", "pagerPosition":"top", "pagerPrevNextLoop":"1", "pagerScrollableLoop":"1", "nrOfPagerItems":"4", "pagerContainer":"pager-item", "pagerEvent":"click", "pagerDisableClick":"1", "pagerFast":"1", "pagerPause":"1", "pager2":"0", "pager2Event":"click", "pager2SlideHide":"0", "slideText":"1", "slideTextjQuery":"0", "slideTextPosition":"bottom", "slideTextContainer":"div.slide-text", "slideTextEffectBefore":"fadeOut", "slideTextEffectBeforeSpeed":"250", "slideTextEffectBeforeEasing":"linear", "slideTextEffectAfter":"fadeIn", "slideTextEffectAfterSpeed":"1000", "slideTextEffectAfterEasing":"linear", "height":"327", "width":"770"}}});

On the non-working site it is:

The main difference I can see is that on the non working site forward slashes are used directly (like basePath":"\/") whereas on the working site the slashes are escaped (like "basePath":"\u002F").

Just a guess but perhaps a simple to test starting point.

Ranier, this could explain it, I just have to figure out how to change the base path. I just realized that the version of Drupal on the working site is 7.18 and the non-working one is 7.24. I didn't realize the working site needed to be upgraded. I wonder if that will break the slide show, ugh.

Thanks, that is all it was. I don't understand why the z value was set the way it was.
