    With Dish my music was bouncing around the screen with name of song, title, and album information. My brother has it and it does this on his HR24 but my Sonic Tap just shows a D* logo in the bottom right corner. I have to hit INFO to see what is playing. Anybody know how to pull up this bouncing banner on my HR24?

    The moving box is the screen saver, you just have to wait until the screen saver kicks in.

    Yes. You can choose ON or ON. ;)

    It used to be better - it used to automatically pull up the info, and it was harder to get yourself into that "nothing but a D logo" state.

    I reported this bug a long time ago when it was introduced, but it fell on deaf ears (I think they were focused on whole-home DVR at the time :) ).

    To me the bigger issue is that the artist/title information sometimes doesn't fully update for 3+ minutes.

    It is odd the way it replaces the names line by line. You really don't know the correct information until half way thru the song.
