Just got myself a Touch a couple of days ago and it is a very nice little beast. Lovin' it except for one thing. I have a lot of shoutcast stations in my favorites and only one shows the artwork, that being Radio Paradise. The favorites are stored via mysqueezebox.com
I know the others stream the artwork because I have previously seen this using winamp and foxy tunes where the artwork shows up. An example is Radio Free Colorado and Radio Free Phoenix.
I have the latest firmware running on the Touch as it updated a few days ago when I first connected with my new Touch.
Any advice on what might be going on with the artwork for the streams would be appreciated.

Not sure, but I can say that on my end, I can't get album art on radio free colorado (just tried it; nice 192kbs stream though for classic rock!). I do get artwork with radioparadise. And this is not TOUCH related. For radiofreecolorado, I can't get artwork with the touch, controller, squeezeplay, or ipeng. Again, art OK for radioparadise.

Radio Paradise does seem to be an exception though.
Have you tried adding your favourite stations using the main search engine, instead of shoutcast?
For example, GotRadio Blues via shoutcast is...
But via the main search it is...
With this one you should see the station artwork.
I'd be curious to see how this goes.

If you use erland's Custom Clock screensaver/helper, it's possible to setup a screensaver which then can use LastFM images. I added to my Radio "now playing" screensaver. I've got it setup to alternate between the album art, and LastFM artist images. The result is if I play a radio stream where I don't get artwork (the "album art"), I still usually get images from the LastFM artist images. It's not perfect in this case - I still see the radio icon, but at least I still get some interesting images. If you are using mysqueezebox.com, I'm not sure if it works (although as an applet, you may be able to setup using squeezeboxserver, and then it may work after that on Mysqueezebox.com).
