I've noticed while playing a store bought cd, that the description or artist info on my radio never shows anything...Is that a setting I don't have set up right? I would have thought for store bought cd's that it would at least display the song title playing etc....

It depends on the cd some have it, but most don't.

Well I guess thats better than me not having something set up right. Thats suprising to me though, for what seems to be a simple thing for them to do .. Oh well , thanks for the reply's..

It's not the CD manufacturers (although there is a minor cost for production/development) but rather the CD "player" manufacturers that are the issue.

If they establish/adopt the standard for their players then it will be on all CD's...

Reminds me of the whole RDS broadcast flop...
