    Question About Grace Sirius Radios

    I am helping a family member get SIRIUS radio in their high rise condo. Due to the direction their unit faces, we are going with some SIRIUS internet radio options and devices. Specially, some GRACE radios. We are possibly looking to install 2 units too. One for their bedroom and one for the...

    question about online ID access

    Actually, I would like to know this too. This relative of mine has decided they don't want to mess with using the smartphone app in the car & just continue using the regular radio so we don't have to worry about that. They do want to get a GRACE radio for their home stereo so will still need...

    question about online ID access

    I thought about this as well, but two reasons for NOT doing it. She has already said she doesn't want to mess with constantly bringing the radio in/out of the car. This of course could also be an issue for my smartphone idea. Will see when I tell her about it. Seeing as it would be cheaper, she...

    question about online ID access

    I have a relative who currently has a Stratus 7 SIRIUS radio in her car. It is on a yearly plan, she enjoys it and everything works great. She is now looking to try and get SIRIUS in her current home which is a condo. I was going to help her and originally thought maybe we would have to run an...

    question about new SIRIUS android 2.2 app

    OK, that is about what I thought, but was hoping I was wrong :-) Probably an empty question here, but any idea when H101 OnDemand content might begin to surface & trickle in? Or is that anyone's guess? I'll fully subscribe to an internet radio subscription when they start offering more 101...

    question about new SIRIUS android 2.2 app

    I recently got the SIRIUS 2.2 app update for my android phone (from 9/13/12). It works great and I now see how the OnDemand feature has basically been added for my smartphone. Great feature. However, I am currently in a 30 day trial period and had a question about both. In the past, I know...

    Apple Is Talking To TV Companies

    I also heard rumors that cable companies aren't too happy about Hulu.com. They could then sort of pull the plug on the current Hulu model and make it part of the "TV everywhere" philosophy that cable/satellite providers are trying to implement. Basically, it would mean you have to sign into...

    Apple Is Talking To TV Companies

    I wanted to get more excited about this announcement, but really can't and it sounds like its simply another TiVo like device. Like the current TiVo Premieres (I have 2), I am thinking this Apple TV box will have to take cable cards in order to get their programming. I also read how Cable...

    trying to retrieve login info for android app

    I have the SIRIUS app on a Verizon android (BIONIC) phone. Its a long story why (& I don't want to reset the password) but I basically want to retrieve the login info (username & password) for this app directly from the phone. There is no way to get it from the actual app so I was hoping there...

    SiriusXM 2.0 FINALLY available for Android

    Well, I see the update listing certain phones it works with. Also, "android models running OS 2.2 or higher may be compatible". While not on the initial list of supported devices, I tried it on my Motorola 4G BIONIC (Verizon) and it works perfectly. Wife has a Thunderbolt (on the list) so will...

    new SIRIUSXM 2.0 online beta player

    OK, I think I figured out what some of my audio "drop out" issues were. I was trying to use the new beta player within an IE7 browser. Its on a work PC so I can't upgrade it to IE8 (XP machine). It seems like the new beta player probably works better with a more recent IE browser. However, when...

    new SIRIUSXM 2.0 online beta player

    So, I figured out how to get the new SIRIUSXM 2.0 online beta player at https://www.siriusxm.com/player/beta/ I like it a LOT better compared to the older junky & clunky one. Laid out better, more features, easier to look at & easier to use. I think they are still working some bugs out...

    getting the new SIRIUS DVR player on another PC

    I was offered the new DVR like online player on one PC. Accepted it and its working pretty good for me for the most part. However, when I log into the online player on a totally different PC, it won't offer me this new online DVR player? I get the old crappy online player Is there any way of...

    SiriusXM Player Update

    The new SiriusXM PC player is nice. The older one was pure crap from the start. Now, if only they could get their s&%t together and come out with a new/similar one for the Android, all would be grand :bigthumbup:
