   OK, thanks, it's what I suspected.  I've actually heard from someone else
who moved to CVS, which fixed it.  That's a step I'm very wary of taking, esp.
in the Autumn TV season!

   That's what I've set up, and was the impetus for setting up an LCD:  being
able to see the current track without having the TV on.

   My intention is to cobble a perl script up that shows the backend HD temps
and free space, plus tuner status.  That's all icing on the music front,
though;  without that there seems little point buying the unit.

   Have to hope 0.19's not too long in coming :)
