Hi Hendrick,

Just a quick question.

After 1 minute of inactivity beaTunes is displaying a splash screen with what seems to be a
recently selected song, artist, art / album cover.

I have seen this before, but I don't think that it has consistently always done this. I seem to recall
times when it was not behaving this way, so I suspect there is a way to turn off this behavior.

Usually, I would prefer not to have this happen and it is distracting.

I have tried a few different view options and I don't see a way to control this behavior.

What options are there? Can it be turned off? Can the amount of time be changed?
What determines which image is to be shown?

    Hey Grace,

    please see http://help.beatunes.com/discussions/questions/2792-how-to-unselect... for an answer.

    Can it be turned off?

    Yes. With a negative delay time.

    Can the amount of time be changed?

    Yes. See above.

    What determines which image is to be shown?

    The image is always of the song that's currently being played.
