I would like to see Sirius service adapt XM's online player since it is better. I wonder if that will happen?

Anyone agree/disagree

I agree. I just started using the XM player and I like it much better than Sirius'.

I wish someone would create a 3 party player.

There are several good 3rd party players out there...

My favorite is probably StarPlayr for Windows, but it is currently not working right now due to some server issues. You can check it out at StarPlayr Sirius XM Radio Clients Powered by StreamSmartâ„¢

Other than that, there is a good Yahoo! Widget for Sirius...you may want to give that a shot.

Last but not least is the Sirius Player for FireFox...it works fine, but does not have the song title or artist display.

If and when starplayr gets back up and running. The windows version supports both XM and SIRIUS. I personally don't use the company versions and have always used a plug-in or 3rd party software.

I doubt we'll see this a very big priority right now.

I am starting to get concerned that is a big "if and when".

Great product may fall the victim of a bad hosting company based on what I can tell. i know the guys are working on it really hard, but i am afraid it won't come back :(

The only thing that Starplayer needs is artist / song alert.

:buttrock:Then it would be near perfect.

My understanding is that is coming in a future upgrade along with many other features!
That sound great, any idea when we can expect it?

Being able to listen to Pandora and Slacker would be cool as well. One player for all!:churn:
