    You might not have seen this one yet but its another new feature in the S229 software. When you tune to any SiriusXM channel on your Hopper or Joey you currently see the channel logo for the channel, but over the next month you will notice when you tune into your favorite SiriusXM channel instead of just seeing the channel logo you will also see the album cover of the song your listening to!

    Nice little addition. Is it just a static screen, or does it move around like a screensaver in some manner?

    If it were JUST the album art, I'd bet it moves around. With the add'l information it displays, having it move wouldn't make a lot of sense. It's only onscreen for 3-5 minutes so no worries about "burn-in".

    After being on a channel for awhile the display now dims. I did not time how long

    That sounds great.

    Now I just wish I had the channels here in Hawaii.

    Maybe S229 will fix the Hawaii.Alaska and PR problems

    I would give it a day or two and not all channels have as much album art as others. So you may be looking at a channel that doesn't play much music with art.

    I have had 230 for 2 weeks and have never had the art work on any Sirius channel. Weird that some have it and some don't.

    The full software spool for S230 happened on Monday night. Have you tried just turning your Hopper off and making sure no Joeys are using any of the tuners and no timers are recording? It should take the update if you put it into standby.

    Woke up this morning and album artwork is working for me for the first time. I've had 230 for 2 weeks and this is the first day it has worked not all songs have artwork, but more than half do appear to display cover art
