I am not at home right now, so I can't verify, but I believe that you can
also have the bitrate displayed on the VFD display as well. It is one of
the options of the title format.

well, its certianly in the trackinfo. I'm not sure if the BITRATE variable in
the titleformat will show the converted bitrate. If you navigate to track, and
press right, you get into track Info. Pressing down until it shows bitrate,
will show the expected conversion rate, if applicable, or the normal bitrate if
no conversion is found by the server.

cheers,
kdf
