EDS - Preferred IDP does not display

Hi all 

I'm coming up to speed on deploying the Embedded Discovery Service. I have a test environment so can play as much as required. I have configured my SP to default to shibboleth-ds/index.html and have configured /etc/shibboleth-ds/idpselect_config.js. 

I started out by not having a preferred IDP ie the parameter this.preferredIdP is null 

My test federation metadata loads fine and my idp and mdui info appears in my DiscoFeed. I can select it from the drop down box on the index.html page. The mdui Display Name appears ok and if I return back to the page via my protected link the idp's logo appears. 

I then turn on preferred idp by the following code 

this.preferredIdP = 'https://idp3.e2bn.org/idp/shibboleth'; 

However when I visit the protected link, I just get "Use a suggested selection:" appearing with no IDP info underneath. The drop down option still works ok. 

Is there something wrong with the syntax of the this.preferredIdP ?
