Has anyone installed the Alpine IAV-W205 with a Sirius tuner? If so, does the unit display all of the characters in the song title and artist? My CDA-9855 does not. It only displays the first 15 characters (like XM). I was told by customer support this was a limitation in the head unit not the SAT tuner. I'd like to know if this has been fixed so if I get this unit I'll know what to expect.

It still does not show all of the text. To me, it seems like it should when it scrolls, but it doesn't.
