I listened to the web player today for around 6 hours straight. It was on MyRockbar. It did not time out 1 time. I never changed the channel or messed with the settings.

Has anyone else noticed no timeouts?

Had them multiple times today on iOS.
sjam613 Were you on MySXM? Puddy was apparently the whole time. Maybe no time-outs using MySXM!

Hmm... nice discovery puddychains :blob1:
I am not 100% sure there is anything to it. I just know today it never asked me or kicked me out. Work is generally the only time it stays on a channel long enough to get kicked out. At home I am messing with channels often.

I will see what happens tomorrow. Sometimes I get too busy and never login.

Just saw a post on FB thanking SXM for getting rid of the Timeout- they were apparently listening to Classic Vinyl (not on MySXM) on Internet Radio. I don't listen via PC, so I can't confirm this, but I can verify I have not had any "Are you still listening" pop-up on the iPhone app or the Lynx for quite awhile.

Listening to Comes Alive on the desktop player. Well past the *** mark and still going. I would think the apps would require an update to remove the timeout.

True. I remember the update that brought the timeout to the stilettos.

Then again, the SL radios were somewhat of a different beast with the Zing software...ugh.

Listening on the iPhone is the way to go.. I'm enjoying the MyControl features a heck of a lot. :cool:
