    Default MP3 CD Playback on HT Components

    Ignoring the capabilities of an MP3 CD being played on a PC, what is the reasoning that the display text of the track being played is so ridiculously short if you wanna see the tracks on your TV? Why can't they get it longer than 8 characters?

    Because the people who design them are still using DOS :D

    The most common file system for CD-ROM is ISO 9660 which is the international standard version of the High Sierra Group file system and is purpose designed for the PC and MSDOS. The JOLIET extensions provide long filenames.

    With the advent of DVD, the Micro-UDF file system has been added to the list. This is suitable for read-only and re-writable discs and allows long filenames etc.
