i’ve seen a lot of posts here about album art and how it hogs the display so you can’t see the full title/artist name.
instead of modifying the current display…
how about just adding another display screen that you can access by pushing the scroll wheel button?
right now when a song is dplaying, if you press the wheel you can choose from 5 displays-
- title/artist info with album art
- title/artist with an EQ display
- title/artist with NEXT SONG display
- title/artist with a song progress indicator
- full screen of album art
so why not a 6th screen that displays
title/artist then some of the extended tag information such as
year, track, genre, CODEC, bitrate, frequency, tag and maybe even the comment field?
all this data is in the tag of the file, but currently there is no way to view this data on the FUZE, you have to conect it to a PC to tell.
especially now that flac/ogg support is added to the FUZE, it would be nice to know what format you are listening to.
perhaps adding this new screen would resolve the complaints about album art and scrolling without having to re-design the current screens/displays?
most likely it would need to be a screen with a smaller font to fit more characters in it.
i bet folks here would be happy to design it if you give us some pixel/character specs, i know i would.
