Default Song Info Appeared on Wi-Fi Mode Immediately

I was listening to my Stiletto last night in the Wi-Fi mode and I noticed something different. The song artist and title appeared immediately. I didn't have to wait for the next song to begin as I did previously. Every time I changed the station, it displayed the info right away even though it was in the middle of a song.

I can't check it now as I don't have the Stiletto with me at work, but has anyone else noticed this? I wonder if they figured out a way to display the information immediately.

Looks like it takes about 5 seconds to display the song info now. Nice job, Sirius!

awesome job sirius! maybe the firmware update (whenever it is) will allow you to see whats currently playing in the category list instead of seeing a description of the channels now.

Crap. And I'm currently staying at a hotel where I can't get on to their WLAN to test this out.

They switched the servers the SL is going to for the content... the DNS zone I had setup, so I could override some channels, is now all fubar.

Must find a way to automate updating the zone.....

That is my thought exactly!! No firmware updates have been publicly released at this point.

Now if they can only release their "Now Playing On All Channels" info so that they can see who's playing on what channels while in WiFi.
