Anyone notice that the artist image on the music + videos tile fades away when music is paused or not playing?
In WP7 the image of the last artist remained whether music was playing or not. It's a shame because the WP8 live tile looks really good. Is everyone experiencing the same thing with the image going away, or am I missing something in the settings?
Using the 920 if that makes any difference. Thanks for any help.

Its a part of windows phone 8 unfortunately 😒. I agree the live tile with the artist pic was a way better live tile choice than fading to that hideous green.... Maybe they'll change it back if enough people request it

Having an option to switch between the plain looking headphone icon, playing now cover and an album cover mix (like the people tile) would be nice.
I have the Music tile in the smallest state because right now it's useless to have it bigger.

Thanks for the response. Bummer that it's a complete change from WP7. Would people be interested if I make a feature request on the official WP request page?
The request would be to make the live tile art remain even when paused.

I would certainly be interested. I currently have the tile on doublewide as I love the way it looks. I can live with a massive green tile while no music is playing - I find it helps keep the Start screen from looking too cluttered, and breaks up my other live tiles, but it would be cool if it kept the art and fancy sliding text. 😵

How do you get the tile to show the album cover? Mine just shows the artist and song name scrolling in an ugly grey color when a song is playing. I didn't use the windows phone app preview to sync my music because it is terrible. I just drag and dropped into the music folder. Also I have connect with xbox music and cloud turned off but even if I turn it on, it shows ugly grey.
