I STFW a lot and RTFM but i did not find an answer to my question. 

I attached an 20x4 LCD-Display to my mythtv-box and installed lcdproc (lcdproc 
works fine). Then i checked all boxes in the "MythTv/Settings/.../Use 
LCD-Display"-Menu and restarted mythfrontend.

Now i can see pretty much information on the Display, like the "Menu" and 
"Chanel-Info" etc. but not the most important thing (for me). 

In mythmusic i can only see the artist and the title of the previous, the 
current and the next song.  And when i try to change the playlist it shows 
"Danger, Will Robinson". I thougt there would be a bar showing how much is 
left timewise on the song or something similar.

When only the "Show Title/Artist" in the "MythTv/Settings/.../Use 
LCD-Display"-Menu is checked my Display shows nothing.

Ok, long story short:
1. Is this normal and i should stop searching the net and be happy OR is there 
a possibility to get this progressbar?
2. Give me a hint how...Please

My box is running Suse 9.2 (Kernel 2.6.8-24.16), mythtv 0.18.1( from here: 
h**p://folk.uio.no/oeysteio/apt/suse/9.2-mythtv/RPMS.MythTV/) and lcdproc 
0.4.5. (compiled myself)


P.S. Yeah i learned my english from television... sorry :)
