Why on earth would I want to constantly be going over to my computer when I have friends over to click something to show album art ? ? ?
How are you putting it on your TV? There's obviously still cover art display on Apple TV (although I agree it doesn't make sense to pay $99 for this feature if you don't already have one)

I have a Mac Mini hooked up to one of the HDMI ports.

Perfect for browsing the Net and having my Music hooked up to the living room stereo for when I entertain guests.

I just got a new 70" SHARP Aquos too, maybe part of why I was so bummed out to see Coverflow go.

Ah, the rich man's Apple TV! That's what I might have done if I had a bit more spare cash. It's a shame there's no way to run Apple TV iOS on the mac mini...

darker background

I know they made the experience to be more like their new iTunes store, but I'd really like the option to change the background to black similar to the movies section on the store. I find the abundance of white to be irritating to my eyes, its just to bright. I also wish there was away like in iOS to click a letter to go to that ablum grouping. For some reason when I'm viewing a artists albums I can't clik in the album area and hit (H) and go to the ablum that starts with (H) it seems to only work when selecting artists.

The upgrade is so awful it makes me wonder if they ever tested it, int he film section you can only scroll up and down when using a magic mouse by making sure the pointer is in the tiny space between the 2 huge list tables that take up 90% of the window, or of course use the scroll bar but what the point of having the advancement of touch scrolling..I mean it must be even worse on a Macbook.
For anyone with a film or TV collection the design is simply awful..jeez is this the best they can do!!

You can't? It's there for me. Either system search or in Music. Also searches Match music still in the cloud.

Or do you mean when the phone is connected to the computer?

Thank you.
.Wav files don't contain metadata, convert to Apple Lossless then you can do this.

No update until this is done and the MAIN list view looks exactly as in 10.7, i.e., songs with artwork properly integrated in a sequential manner.

If you want the best sound out of iTunes than you need the best source--to me, lossless is lossless--so if you input using Apple Lossless, you get lossless--and iTunes is fine for doing that.

More changes needed...

Bring back multiple windows.

And also want to see the track progress when minimized like before. Now if I want to move on a track have to maximize the window and is often a pain, especially on podcasts where you need to skip forwards.

What's the problem with that? I'm also using iTunes as my media hub on a stereo that costs 10k. As long as the digital data makes its way into the DAC, the rest is basically the same as using any front end.

SOME bugs? No, there is a level of bugs in iTunes 11 that would be common in an early beta release, not shipped software. All of these feature customizations you talk about mostly don't work. Playlists are especially broken. View options don't save. Playlist views don't jump forward to the current song. Albums with custom album art no longer share between songs (this is one reason why people are reporting missing album art) -- you have to paste the art into every song on the album now. Go to Song doesn't work reliably with playlists. Pressing play now resumes the previously playing song, not the currently selected song, which is changed behaviour.

I could go on.

I do it all the time. I just add a column "Date Added" and sort by it.

How to Bring Back Duplicates Now

If you can't wait for them to add back the "find duplicates" feature, and you use iTunes match, just make a smart playlist with the following rule:

iCloud Status > Is > Duplicate

The only thing I used Cover Flow with was for browsing my movies. I thought it was a cool way to browse them. Otherwise, I didn't use Cover Flow.
