Now that the 4.5 firmware has been out for a few days, users have poked through the nooks and crannies to find all the new hotness on offer. If you needed another (or 20-something) reason to update, check out the thread.

Zune 4.5 Update is Now Out!

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Zune Hardware" @ 10:07 AM

I guess the Zune team was all like "Screw that couple of weeks thing we told people, let's release this NOW!". And so they did. I just docked my Zune HD and grabbed the above screen shot. Updating it now...

"The Zune team gives you a sneak peek into some of the new Zune 4.5 updates coming soon. Matt Akers, host of the Zune Insider Podcast, talks with Nate Muller a PM from the Zune team about Smart DJ coming to the Zune HD device and also browsing Zune Marketplace on the TV through a Zune HD and a Zune HD dock. Nate gives us a demo of how Smart DJ will work on the Zune HD and also some of the new browsing features of Zune Marketplace through the TV from a Zune HD connected to a Zune HD docking station."

Wow, does the TV-out experience ever look fantastic! After the 4.5 update comes out I'll have to hook up my Zune HD to my TV set again...I've only done it once and found the experience a little disappointing.
