Issues with presentations linked to google spreadsheets

I've had quote of the day and trivia question slides for all of my customers.  And they were working fine for the last couple of years.  I noticed today all of these are no longer playing for any of my clients.  What's really odd it just skips over them in the schedule like they don't even exist, even though they are scheduled for "Always".  Anybody experienced this?  Has there been a change to the google spreadsheet widget causing the old code to skip the slide because of an error in the code?

Here's on for quote of the day

Hi Larry,

On first look, it looks like the presentation is currently using one of our deprecated Google Spreadsheet Gadgets. Can you please switch to the new Spreadsheet Widget with the same settings and let us know if you see any further issues regarding the presentation?

To switch:
1. Go to the Placeholder containing the Gadget
2. Select Add
3. Select Content
4. Choose the Spreadsheet Widget then select 'Add'
5. Add the same link and settings from the Gadget to the Widget

Please note that the Widget has additional settings in contrast to the Gadget.
