A fellow with another SB 3 said you can use cover artwork in the SB, is this for the SB software or the VFD on the SB itself? (I can't see how artwork will be that recognisable on the VFD anyway)

Was he talking rubbish? I have used "Album cover art downloader" to download all covers for my albums.

The SlimServer web interface can show album artwork! However you're correct... the VFD on the Squeezebox isn't capable.

ah right you are, I don't use slimserver on the htpc to browse the music, I use winamp. It's on the standard branching, Custom browser isn't showing cd artwork, unless I haven't enabled it somewhere.

A 32x32 pixel 4-bit image of an album cover would be a tad gnarly looking, I think.
