    Re: Important Information About Your Siriusxm Internet Radio

    I'm probably going to try and sell the otherwise still functional SL2, I just need to find all of the accessories.

    Re: Important Information About Your Siriusxm Internet Radio

    I successfully went the other way around: I had to write a sternly worded letter (on paper!), but I got my Lifetime sub transferred for free. It's dead now that it's on a car, but I don't really care... The car is now free for as long as it and the head unit last, which should be a long time...

    Re: Important Information About Your Siriusxm Internet Radio

    I have not. The regular agent put me on hold until it was time to go home, apparently. They didn't at all understand my problem, anyway. I think I'm going to write them a letter and request they xfer the lifetime sub to my car (killing it, I know, but at least the car would be free), and that...

    Re: Important Information About Your Siriusxm Internet Radio

    I'm planning on calling and raising a stink, in that case. Anyone else done so?

    Re: Important Information About Your Siriusxm Internet Radio

    Received this email today: It goes on a bit about alternatives, etc. This appears to be related to the impending shutdown of the WMA legacy streams. That said, I got this email even though I'm using an SL2, which according to What are the computer requirements for streaming SiriusXM? What...

    SL2 Internet service issues?

    Yeah, that's what mine has been relegated to for the past couple of years. The SL2's $3.50 premium Internet account is what my phone and such uses. I'd just like to have a stand alone radio, perhaps for nostalgia's sake... This is *Art Bell*, after all. It's all nostalgia for me. I'm...

    SL2 Internet service issues?

    Hi all, With the return of Art Bell, I dug my SL2 (w/ lifetime!) out of the old moving box that had all of my Sirius stuff, plugged it into my trusty old Soloist (!), connected it up to my wifi... To find that it will only play for 10 minutes at a time, before it loses the connection and has...

    Watch "Defying Gravity!"

    Actually, they did hype it. And it's still on CTV as far as I know, on Friday nights. I'm hoping tonight's episode becomes "available" soon, since it should be a good one.

    George Taylor Morris of Deep Tracks passes away at 62

    Sigh. Reminds me that I need to cut out the cigars.

    Sirius Lifetime

    Same company, different radio, and different billing/activation systems. Until they unify the billing/activation systems, they aren't going to combine subs. And since they can use it as an excuse to charge more, it's not likely to ever happen.

    Best of Sound Quality?

    My SL2 with BoXM is fine, never noticed any issues with the BO streams. Of course I only listen to them during basketball season...

    Can you use the Sirius Echo Repeater with an XM antenna?

    He didn't say anything about wanting to use the repeater with XM radios... The repeater isn't going to work with XM radios, but plugging an XM antenna into the repeater probably won't cause any issues.

    New bird "Sirius FM-5"

    When it's in it's proper orbit (might be already), and has passed QA testing, I would assume.

    Sirius "Listener Line" aka Octane "pipeline" and others...

    Not really, they're all just DID numbers.
