Text Displayer gadget sometimes displays sequences of numbers as '*******'.
I entered (well, copied and pasted) a large body of text I had pre-written in notepad via the tool on indreams.me and every-time I tried to enter it Dreams would always convert the number sequence to stars '*****'.
It's also quite laggy even with a sub 100 ping time on the ping test, with the cursor on the PS4 moving around inside the text entry box in a seemingly random, haphazard way.
Steps to attempt to repro:
- Place a TD gadget onto a Microchip.
- Open TD Gadget.
- Copy and paste a large body of text from notepad into indreams.me using the latest version of Mozilla Firefox.
- Any and all numeric characters in the text are converted to stars '*****'.

This only occurs when reaching a 7 number count and its intention is to help prevent sensitive information being given out, this is intended functionality. Understandably, I can see why this isn't ideal for your situation.
My first guess about censoring numbers would be that it's to prevent disclosure of personal information. The threshold appears to be seven digits, so it's probably assuming that sequences of digits of that length or longer are phone numbers. A bit silly as we can still display digit sequences using number displayers.
Not sure about the stars.
But the indreams site only sends the data now and then; it's not intended to be realtime. You edit stuff on indreams. Then it updates on the PS4.
