So here's the deal.

I connect my Stiletto 2 to WiFi in my house, then I connect the Stiletto to the computer via USB, then I play the Stiletto through headphones thanks to the headphone jack.

Am I:
Using power from the Stiletto battery?
Using power from the computer WITHOUT recharging the Stiletto?
Using power from the computer AND recharging the Stiletto?
Something else?


If this question isn't answered by the above ones:
Also, is it possible to recharge through the computer just by using the USB? How?

OK, obvious question is: Why not just listen to the internet Sirius service on the PC? Or are you listening to one of the few channels not carried on WiFi? When I was traveling in Europe, I listened to the internet service all the time and found it to be just fine.

To answer your question, I've seen the USB power the SL2 when attached, but I'm not sure if there is enough current in the USB to both power and charge. I doubt it. It might charge when the SL2 is off. I have several USB devices that work this way.

I figure that by using the radio, I can conserve the computer processor and focus it's energy elsewhere.

That second part makes sense. I'm starting to think it won't charge up AND play at the same time. :(
