Got a warning message on my SL100 that I was nearing my limit of 10 hours of loved songs, and would have to transfer them to my PC.

First of all, this is disappointing because I did not know about this limit.

Secondly, I thought it was impossible to transfer to a PC.

The RIAA made Sirius put a 10 hour loved songs limit. The idea is that you would go to your PC and buy the song from the RIAA and put it back on your computer as a MP3. There is no way to digitally transfer the loved songs to the PC. You can hook up your unit via headphones and line in on your computer.

All new XM and Sirius radios have this limit. An XM Inno does not.

The recording limit is a moot point for most high end Sirius receiver owners due to the constant recoveries, reset and erases, 3-finger-resets, etc that these devices require. Though I will admit, the SL10's and 100's have been the best so far in this regard.

As for transferring to my PC (so I don't lose loved songs I want to save as well as being able to put them back onto my micro SD card), I use the Xitel Record-from-your-stereo-to-your-PC system. This works great for transferring songs from vinyl and old cassettes onto my S2 as well.

The SL2 has plenty more bugs than the SL10 did, but the SL10 does not allow loved songs.
