Hi,

I would like to request the following feature requests for the SHD Display
1. Play/Pause icon. Shows status of whether there is anything playing through the SHD. I have a mixed (HT/2 channel) system so it is useful to know if something is playing through the SHD
2. Show Dirac Filter name instead of "Preset 1". This could be displayed as "1 - <Filter name>". Makes it easier to select filters, or know which filter is applied.
3. Show playback information - Song / Artist and time left in the song. Pressing the SHD dial or change the display to the current info screen, however during idle playback the display can switch to show information about the currently playing title.

Thanks

1. Tricky, something is always playing through the SHD though it may be silence. No source can tell the SHD of its play/pause state.
2. Agreed
3. Not relevant to any source except Volumio and I don't believe Volumio has any way to tell the SHD what track it is playing, Volumio is implemented as a seperate PCB which I believe only connects to the SHD over a serial digital audio interface. This is also why you can't control the SHD over the LAN port, that belongs to the Volumio PCB

If Volumio could communicate to the SHD display , it could send both play/pause info as well as song title/time info. Would make the display far more useful.

Dirac filter name should be easily implementable I imagine.
