  • uSirius - Satellite Radio on the iPhone


    Sirius radio comes to the iPhone with uSirius, an app by Millard Software which allows you to log in to your Sirius account and listen via the iPhone. Still in beta, the app can be downloaded from their repo at
    Code:
    http://www.millardsoftware.com/files/downloads/usirius/iphone/iphone.xml
    (gotta love typing that into the iPhone, heh).

    They do warn that initial loading of the Channel Lineup and Channel Logos takes a while, and the app "may even cause your iPhone/iPod Touch to reboot." But hey, its Sirius, on the iPhone. Serious.

      I've been trying to update the Intelliscreen since yesterday and I keep getting errors. I didn't put it together that uSirius may be causing the issue. I'm going to do some checks on my other apps and see which are now having problems. I'll report back any findings.

      Refresh your sources and look in the update section.

      App has been updated to 0.61 for those that don't know. Looks like the channel lineup has been repaired.

      (Edit: Actually some channels have been corrected but some still not right. Shade 45, Eminem's station is playing the greatful dead. Just logged into my account on Sirius' website and noticed that was not what the station is actually playing)

      Now all we need is to be able to 'love' 'record' and/or 'add songs to wishlist' like we can with the stiletto 2 and then we'll be good to go

      Great work by the developer! Thank you!!

      for me it will play sometimes for 22 sec and lock up and another time for 15 min and lock up?

      Yup, the stream dies. Sometimes it is after 1 min or sometimes its 25 min later. It is random. I understand needing to buffer, but I think it is a bug in software. I'm not complaining. This is an awesome app, probably one of the few 'killer' apps for the iPhone.

      The first time I had it installed it ran for about 2 or 3 min then REBOOT my phone....which was kind of odd...and a bit scary

      I am looking forward to future enhancements to this app for sure. I may even upgrade my streaming to the 120kb version because of this application.

      Awesome job!

      This is a really great app , but I too did notice that my iPhone would restart randomly when using this app. I'd like it to run in the background, and something has to be done about the stream randomly cutting off. Other than those few downfalls, this is a really killer app.

      Hi,
      I love this app its working good for me so far except for the channel line up.....one question: Is everyones channel lineup errors the same or is the app grabbing the wrong stream randomly?.....i want to find stern but im having a hard time finding it...

      update: after about 15 minutes i lose the stream and ive noticed that the iphone is getting very warm with this app running..maybe thats normal for an app that runs for that long im not sure ive never ran anything that long...if anyone knows about it getting warm please let me know..thank you

      Say you want howard stern 100 you click on 100 and get something else. all you have to do is pick something else and it seems you'll get the last channel you picked?

      Great app. I've been listening to Howard since '92, and on sirius since 1/06 when he 1st came onto sirius. I have the stiletto 100, its also in my car and on my comp. i love this because I can now use this to listen while working, and use my iphones earphones, instead of that crappy, HUGE sirius headset with antenna built in.
      W/o a doubt top 3 apps for the iphone to date.

      People are getting too bent out of shape with the problems we are having. This is a big deal, and not an easy feat that he's done here. Its just gonna get better and better, as he keeps cleaning it up, and gets rid of the bugs and problems. Once this app is working 100% and no problems, this will truly revolutionize what can be done on a phone.

      AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      As i said before this is a excellent and im sure the bugs will be worked out.. one feature id like to see is being able to create a favorites list so when u log in u dont have to scroll way to the bottom if 100 is ya fav channel or any high number. you could jus go into ya fav list or what eva they wanna label it as and jus pick from the channels you listen to most.... i definetly would like to see the background playing while in other apps put into this app as well..... otherwise its a killer app.. i just finished my 3 day trial and signed up for the monthly access

      Loaded it up, was able to log in, but got the "Unable to load lineup." error. Is there an error log to look at/upload?

      ---

      nvm, I found the problem.
      In the Library/Preferences directory for the mobile user, the write settings weren't allowed for group wheel.
      as root, I issued "chmod 775 /var/mobile/Library/uSirius/lineup" and "chmod 775 /var/mobile/Library/uSirius/logos"

      Streaming now. Getting Bon Jovi,Bad Medicine on "30 CoffeeHouse" is a bit off putting though. The announcer says it's Channel 8. I hope that helps.

      I might be a special case. Even though I installed your app through Installer.app, I'm mostly a Cydia user and have all of the updates for that installed. I've also put in the SUID update and the Safari cookie update manually installed.

      I'd like to help further testing.

      ---

      Channel 8 comes up correctly. And I like the stream buffer progress percentage.
