SAT radio display

Is there any way to get the radio unit to show the full artist/title in SAT mode? Currently my display truncates it at about 10 letters or so.

The radio supports up to 20 characters on the display for artist and title, but the XM receiver doesn't. Apparently the Sirius receiver provides longer titles.

The XM receiver sends what it get's from the broadcast, then pads the rest of string with nulls (empty characters).

Looks like a case of blame XM, not Nissan (Oops, I mean Infiniti) or Clarion.

I guess when you don't have enough characters to scroll, then it won't! As far as I know, it only scrolls, if there's enough there to scroll to.

So far, I've only seen CD's allow me to scroll. I haven't listened to AM, but I did check that it worked once. On FM, I've yet to see a station here, broadcast anything more than a Station ID on RDS. (I keep hoping...)
