    That looks absolutley Awesome!!!!!

    I am currently using the program XMPCCAR on my machine and it allows you to not display the columns you don't want to see. I've got Genre's turned off, I want your XM interface!!!!

    How about color coding the text for genre instead of a genre column?

    I never use genres in that kind of listing anyway. The only time I use genre info is when I want to skip to a certain genre directly (via a different genre selection interface). Maybe you can have a separate pop-up window for jumping to a certain genre?

    I don't think that's a wise choice as then you'll see rainbow colors everywhere which make the whole interface looks...I don't know...messy???

    I like the idea of having a button that bring out a sub category with genre there.

    Is there anyway you could change the font size in just the xm menu? Maby then you could fit it in.

    This is kinda WAY out there, but is there a way that you could limit the width of each field to say 8 characters... This would make it mostly readable, then once highlighted with your blue row there, have each field scroll to read all off the info... i.e. un-selected you Huey Lewis song would be something like:
    Huey Lew - I Want A - The 80s - Genre
    Obviously some of the fields could be longer depending on the number of columns you plan to integrate. Likewise, if you decided to make the fields selectable as to which are shown, you could make artist = X, Title = 1.5X etc etc, and have it calculate the size based on the total number of columns, and the fields selected.
    Hope that didn't get too messy/confusing.
