Satellite Radio via DirecTV in Media Center

One thing I’d like to see improved in Vista in Media Center would be for the ability to maintain a television audio track while using “My Pictures.” At present DirecTV is offering a number of satellite radio broadcasts. The picture screen of course is blank but the music plays. It would be great to be able to keep the audio stream but let “my pictures” overlay on this audio. At present I’m doing this by using my DirecTV TiVo as the input on my home theater but switching my video input to MCE where I’ve got my photos going, but then I miss the nice titles and album art as the songs come up. Now that MSFT and DirecTV are working together, it would be great to tie the music channels in with album art, song titles, etc.
