I've owned a Pioneer in-dash XM System since Nov. I'm very happy with it except for the lack of scrolling song titles. On Friday the 30th I was listening to the 60's on 6 during their all request hour at 5pm central time. When they would display the 1-866 request line number it started scrolling the whole number across my display. I had to listen awhile when I got home just to make sure I wasn't seeing things. Usually I just see the last seven numbers and on some channels they sometimes only display the numbers 1-866. There was still no scrolling song titles though. I wonder if someone at XM was hacking into Pioneer's stupid song title hardware. I e-mailed Pioneer about this about month after I got my system and they gave me a smart aleck answer about people wrecking their cars if the whole song title scrolled.

That's funny, they don't seem to have problems with highly graphic animated "Screen Savers" on their head units, but no scrolling song titles?

Its a limitation of the hardware, someone forgot to design it in.
