    Hello all,

    I recently inherited an iPod Video 5th gen. which is pretty cool, but is missing one major function IMHO. When viewing playlists, it only shows the song and NOT the artist name. Is there a way to modify this (hack, update, rockbox, etc.)? I know that the new 6th gen does have it.

    Rockbox has this. I am sorely missing the ability to install it on the new Classics.

    Is there a specific theme that does this or does RockBox in general have this function.

    Also, can I still use iTunes after RockBox? I will do some research as well.
