Maybe you are right. I have looked at some videos posted on youtube, such as this one:

where it seems the track info is displayed just once after selection and the display then reverts to CD#/track#.

Mine doesn't even do that, but for it to be useful it would have to be scrolling continuously. Bummer - when you have 1000s of tracks on an iDevice or USB storage, not being able to see what is playing is not good.

Fine when you can run the iDevice in UI mode - i.e select tracks on the iPhone and have it display the now playing info, but that doesn't help when playing off USB.

Thank God for Audiogalaxy streaming and Windows Home Server.

Ace, that shot of your car is that along the Great Ocean Road? It's awesome. First time I was in Melbourne I didn't even know it existed and I took someone's advice to go for a drive to Port Campbell... man was that a great surprise experience!
