Yes, I'm sorry, I should have been clearer. I was referring to track names of MP3s.
When you play a CD (CD/CD-R/CD-RW/MP3) the display on the front of the player WILL show you which disk is playing (there are 5 little numbered disk icons on the front display), the track that is playing, and the time of the track (00:00:00).
What I was trying to say about having the TV on is this:
When you pop in a store bought CD with 15 tracks on it and have the case/jacket in your hand, it's real easy to look at the jacket of the CD and know exactly what track you are looking for or want to play.
When you pop in a CD-R/CD-RW that has more than a hundred tracks of MP3s on it (something I do often), it can be a little hard to find a certain song unless you've catalogued your MP3s and have a list of what songs are on what disks.
With the 2715, when you play a CD-R/CD-RW that has MP3s on it and turn the TV on, you get a nice display/menu of the disk with the names of the songs listed.
So although you can play any CD/CD-R/CD-RW with the TV turned off just fine, having the TV on while listening to MP3s makes it a whole lot easier to "find your place." That's all I meant.
About audio through the TV:
They have the 2715 running through their Dolby/DTS receiver, so I don't know what the music will sound like when played through the TV (if that's what you were asking), but the MP3s (as well as music CDs) sound terrific when played through the receiver.
Hope this helps
