Hey... I've been steaming today for over 5-1/2 hours now at work and the "Are You Still Listening" message hasn't popped up once.

Anyone else notice this today? I am streaming on the same PC as always and as of last Friday it was still happening to me...

Man I hope this is the way it stays and isn't some sort of fluke!

Angry RE: Sirius Internet Inactivity Detector

A very late reply to this thread, but I am annoyed by this. I do understand why they do it, but it's causing me issues.

I'm finding that when the player begins the interruption process it hangs my computer for 1-2 mins until the 'are you still listening' message appears. Once I click yes/no my PC response time returns to normal.

Anyone experience this?

Yup, most of us in this thread are experiencing the same thing as you; hence, the thread.

However, I did just go 1 hour and 12 minutes w/o the popup. I'm going to test further and come back.

Nope, every 90 minutes, same thing.

Talking Workaround for "Are you still listening"

Let me start with a little story:

I was on a hot date a few months ago and I finally was able to bring my date into my room where I had plans to seduce her to the sounds of SIRIUS Chill. Everything was going great until half way into the "date" the music stopped because I didn't click on the "Are you still listening" message that popped up on the streaming player.

Needless to say I was pretty pissed and I expressed my feelings to Sirius customer support. They didn't do anything to help.

I spent some time researching and I believe I found a solution to prevent the "are you still listening" message from popping up.

What I did was download a plug-in for Firefox called "QuickJava" which prevents the script that prompts you every 90 minutes from running. The script allows you to stop all JavaScript processing on a page at any time.

Here's how you do it:
1. Download the plug-in at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1237
2. Start up the streaming player as you normally would in FireFox
3. Once you start listening to a channel, click the little "JS" button at the bottom right corner of your browser.

Note: this does break some of the functionality of the player so you may need to toggle Javascript back on if you want to change channels, etc.

Hope this helps!

There's also a Yahoo Widget for this that works beautifully and is immune to the "are you still listening?" pop-up.
