Can we solve Porsche album art?

Over the past few months I've been looking at various in-car entertainment systems and how they display album art. This week it's the turn of Porsche's PCM system.

Release 20160919 - new licencing model

A lot to get through this week, this update is a big 'un!

The main work in this release relates to the previously announced change to licencing. From now on, bliss licences will work indefinitely but will only work on versions of bliss released up to one year after licence installation. You will be able to purchase a lower priced licence to unlock another year's updates (currently this is expected to cost £9).
