Music and Album Covers At The Same Time

Ok:

Here's a kludge that only a very small number of users will be able to do, but it works.

I've got 2 TIVOs, both connected to the same TV/Entertainment center.

1 I installed the J River Media Center Software (upgraded from Media JukeBox) on my PC.

2. Ripped about 400 CD's using Media Center, and had it automatically find and download the album covers.

3. Using the Media Center Server, I serve up the music on one Tivo and use the slide show feature on the 2nd Tivo to view the covers at the same time(again thru the Media Center Server). Of course the covers aren't co-ordinated with the music, but its better than the Tivo black information screen.

I'm not sure, but I think the J River server does a better job of serving up the covers (they are full screen). I think playlists are alot easilier to do
also thru Media Center.

Of course, TIVO ought to be able to be able to do this from a single machine, but that's another story.

Hear, hear! Really though...
While we're on the subject: some sort of screen saver/screen dimmer/moving something would be nice for those of us with screens that are more prone to burn-in than others.

Kinda defeats the purpose to have to turn my plasma off once music is playing, on to change to another CD, off again.

Still, it's one of the most solid and easy to use on-screen music browsers I've seen.

When's HMO V2.0 coming out?

Have you tried pressing the "clear" button to blank out the screen? It works for me. To get the info back just press the info button.

ooo... I didn't know that... haven't had the time to push all the buttons yet. That would work.

Thanks!
