Salling, I've got to commend you on this incredible program. I downloaded the trial version and as soon as I connected and relized what this could do, I bought it. I've always wanted the Sonos music system but was discouraged by the price. This is exactly what I wanted. THANK YOU!!!

I was wondering if maybe in your next version (of if there's a hack) you could do something about how the itunes control displays the album art. I've got an hx4700 VGA pocket pc running SE_VGA (real 640x480) and the way it displays now is not that asthetically pleasing to my spoiled eyes. The pictures are all washed out, stretched, and pixelated. You might want to consider having the album art show up as a small square picture, much like the sonos system does. Then have the song info display beside that. I've attached a picture for "inspiration". Just a suggestion. Maybe make it an option? Other than that, I couldn't be more happier. Thank you!!!

Hi,

Try the alternative artwork mode. Bring up the menu (tap the on screen button) and check out the last (?) item.

Either way, the image shouldn't be stretched. Cropped in most cases, and toned down to let the text show better. But not stretched.

Best.

I would like an option to push a button and get the artwork full screen without anything on top and go back to the play mode with it in the corner after say 5 or 10 seconds of not pushing any buttons.
