In My Radio, select a channel coming through the DVB-T card. It plays just fine, but the overlay area (with the channel logo and name) does not appear.

Go back to the Home screen or other module - still no overlay.

Go back to My Radio and select an internet radio channel. In BluTwoWide the overlay area now appears complete with channel name, but no logo. In XFace, both the logo and channel name appear in the overlay area.

Switch back to a DVB-T radio channel - still no overlay.

(I had the same problem in RC2 with SVN 15 Oct. I hadn't played much with Radio, so don't know when the problem occured.)

    With digital/analog tuner it is correct that it doesn't start when using BlueTwo, with Internet radio BASS/Internal music player it's used so if the channel has text etc it will show up, but thats only for some & not all streams, maybe xface has coded this in another way.

    Dunno if this is a bug or just how it is handled when using B2 as skin(maybe more like a request).
