this is a great idea and the addition of the lyrics makes it well worth the 20 bucks to me anyway one more addition if possible would be an information page for loading reviews and additional articles about album or artist that can be read over length of several or all songs on album cheers ray

'USD $9.95, that's 50% off the final price of $19.95! ' I hope that the forthcoming plan to ask $20 for this, is a joke. Who in their right mind would pay twenty bucks for this. It doesn't actually do anything ! IMHO - Keep it at $10 and set it up for a 50% off sale as a MacUpdate Promo immediately. Twenty dollars for this - Is the developer mad ?

Will this allow one to play iTunes movies full-screen on a secondary monitor without the main monitor going all-black?

It's very seldom you run across a program that does EXACTLY what you're looking for. Billboard is one of them. I wanted a program that displayed my iTunes songs on my second monitor, which in my setup is a TV in my livingroom. This way I get the song information when listening to my iTunes songs in the livingroom, relaxing or having a party. I can't say enough how much I love this program. Fits like a glove!

Billboard is very cool indeed. One minor quibble: when iTunes is paused, it detects this right away. Great. However, when iTunes starts playing again, it doesn't detect this until the next track starts. is there any way to get it to notice that iTunes is playing again before the next track starts?

Works very good on my G4 powerbook 1 Ghz with two monitors. Nice that it switches from left to right about every 20 seconds (adjustable would be good). More different transitions would be good. Changing the text font and size could be good as well. CPU usage is only about 6% until the switch then it jumps to 60% during the switch, not terrible but maybe could get better.
