    It blows my mind that some things from the Zune HD never made it to the Windows Phone platform. The band photo, album cover, album information and song title scroll while the music plays on the Zune HD. This could be a feature while remaining in the music hub on Windows Phone. What do you think? Check out the video to see what I mean:

    I'd rather have this as a lockscreen option. So when under lock+wallpaper, and you turn on show artist background, there should be an option to change either static or animated. This would be a cool feature to have. But on the other hand, you wouldn't want to have your phone screen turned on all the time while playing music. It's not like you're gonna look at it while walking or doing something. Besides, battery matters. But yes, this is cool.

    Whether on the lock screen or in the music hub, it will time out depending on how long you adjust the settings. I like the lock screen idea, but I may not want it to interfere with the live apps.

    It looks even better when you use XBox Music on your XBOX on your HDTV.

    The good ole "coulda / shoulda / woulda" post. Not saying I don't like the Zune look . Its the same when streaming via the Xbox or PC but I'm sure there is a good reason why they didn't do it that way on WP. My thought is the amount data usage it creates. Its no issue when connected via WiFi but over a 3 or 4G connection you would likely have a number of unhappy users.

    @gsquared, don't like your tone pal Fact is, a few things from WP7 didn't make it to WP8; has nothing to do with improving the OS, but were simply over-looked. Same goes for this ability. Also, the Zune HD doesn't need to have Wi-Fi or any other connection to make the scrolling photos and info work.

    Yes, gapless playback, cross fading, they should come to the music hub too. Though that wasn't in the Zune HD, as far as I know,

    Was it automatically gapless or is that in the settings? I don't have my Zune HD with me at the moment.
