Title: Scroll/View radio info (Sansa Clip Zip)
Post by: Alicibuse on July 04, 2013, 09:07:55 AM
I would like to know how I can scroll or view the info transmitted by FM Radio, like artist - song. Now I just see the artist, given the name doesn't use too many characters.

Unless I've misunderstood you, I think you're asking about RDS.

I supported RDS in my theme for a while (FuzzyLogic), but found I was getting data abort errors after a few minutes, so I disabled it.

It seems others have noticed problems;

My problems were with broadcasts from the BBC here in the UK, your local stations might send simpler streams, causing less problems.

Yep, that's it. I'm using the latest stable release, so apparently this is an issue. Fix would be cool, but I can live without it for now. (also Rockbox is pretty awesome)
