    Spotify Artist/Album only sometimes appears in ExtendedText Display on transporter

    > Currently when I press NOW PLAYING, the right-hand screen shows
    > "<tracknum> <Song> by <Artist> from <Album>" for 30 seconds UNTIL the 30
    > seconds timer times out, and then it displays Album Artist.


    What you're seeing there might just be the "playlist format" as defined
    somewhere in the LMS settings. From LMS' point of view it's a different
    mode than a screensaver. That's why I'd suggest you use MIS to customize
    the behaviour.

    Hi again

    Turns out I am using the MIS. I have just one setting set, that being "Extended Text Display" which is set to "Use screensaver settings." So I am just wondering why when playing songs via Spotty is slightly different to playing song from the locally stored Artists I have. Are you sure it's not a Spotty issue? That's the only difference.

    It's as if there are TWO "when playing" modes, and pressing the "Now Playing" button sticks you in the other "when playing" mode for 30s, which looks identical for locally playing artists, but looks different on the extended text display for Spotty playing artists.

    Thanks in advance.

    Does anyone else see the issue that I am seeing?
