CD/MP3 Windows Player to display TIMECODE

For a musical concert performance, we need a PC-based player application that has a mode that displays the timecode as large as possible.

we've tried Windows Media player, but it's small and hard to see at a glance (by the conductor)
we've tried MAGNIFIER but cannot find a combination of settings that would not follow the cursor and leave the "excerpted" (cropped) timecode stable while the PC-operator plays/pauses/changes tracks during the performance.
we'd rather not involve our editing software since it's large (and dangerous for mishaps during performance)

any suggestions for players to display LARGE (on the order of 1") timecode numbers?

thanks:  but do you know of a specific one, we did look around, but maybe didn't find the right skin?  they all seem to be just various graphic/coolness design alternatives as opposed to functional.  I do realize that my usage is unusual/rare/obscure!

I understand you are trying to get the largest time code you can...

If you are using windows media player 9 there is one from theskinfactory.com called Alienware ALXMorph.... or the Batman Begins

If you are using windows media player 10 theskinfactory.com:
WMP 10 Reloaded
http://www.theskinsfactory.com/portfolio.php/entry/media-player-skins/windows-media-center-05/

There are different skins for each version of Windows Media player.
Which version are you using?
