so for my day to day usage i carry an ipod classic which has rockbox installed thanks to the work from the guys at freemyipod.

I wanted a simple theme that just gave me the basic information that i wanted without graphics or anything else in a simple green terminal style.

here is the while playing screen config (.rockbox/wps/poa_nyc.wps):

%ac%?ia<Artist: %ia|%s%fn>
%ac%?it<Track: %it|>
%ac%?id<Album: %id|no ID3 tag available>

%al%pc %ac%px%% %ar%pt
%ac%pb
%ac%pm
%ac%t(2.0)%?Ia<%sNext Artist: %Ia|%sNext File: %Fn>;%ac%t(2.0)%?It<%sNext Track: %It|%sNext File: %Fn>

%alMode: %?mp<Stopped|Playing|Paused|Ffwd|Rew|Rec|Rec pause|FM|FM pause> %arVol: %pv 
%alFormat %fc %fb                   %arBatt: %bl%%

%aL%cH:%cM:%cS - %cm/%cd/%cy        %arCrossfade: %xf
