    This app rocks! It works like a charm. Now I have a portable sirius receiver! Now if only they would build an fm transmitter right into the phone (haha), I'd be set!

    I noticed the same thing...but other than that it's awesome. Seems to work fine over Edge also.

    It would be great also if the channels were grouped into categories.

    I just insalled it with free trial
    and it works great.
    One question
    why is the sound quality only 31kbps? Shouldn't be much better quality?

    Sirius changed their lineup today so I hope they address that soon! For instance, Area 33 is now on 38!

    yeah, the 31 kbs things is a little bothersome, but the Jam On station is awesome. If they merge w/ XM I will buy the subscription because I won't have to buy a new head unit for my car.

    For those wondering, it takes a little over 5 minutes to sign up for the 3 day trial.

    One question
    why is the sound quality only 31kbps? Shouldn't be much better quality?
    I believe Sirius internet radio streams different quality of feeds, based on a few situations.

    If you sign up for the free trial, Sirius does not stream the higher quality (128kbps, or what they call CD Quality) feed to you. The free trial feed, is also the lower quality feed you get if you already have a Sirius Radio that you pay monthly dues for, but not the monthly dues for an Sirius internet account.

    You have to sign up for the Premium Internet service for the high quality 128kbps feed (2.99/month if you already have a current radio account, or $12.99/month if you have no radio account).

    Even with this, I've noticed (and remember reading somewhere) that Sirius (and XM) send different quality feeds (whether it is an internet account, or to a standard radio account) based on the signal demand and popularity for that particular station. A voice only channel (like Comedy channel) will get a lower quality feed, as it doesn't need the full stream to sound good. Also, some of the channels don't get the number of listeners, so they use lower quality streams (like the Jazz stations I've noticed). They do this to save satellite bandwidth, but it's also the quality sent via the internet streams (just a copy of what's sent out the antenna).

    So far while using the uSirius player, I've seen 31k, 48k, and 128k streams. I'm a premium subscriber, and did check the uSirius toggle for the higher quality feed.

    31k is almost 'junk' IMO. So many compression artifacts that it's hard to listen to. 48k is ok, but it's still a bit noticeable. 128k is awesome. It does work on an edge connection.

    I did an hours worth of straight listening on edge at the gym today, just to see the amount of data pulled, and how the battery held up. I also tested the player while driving to/from the gym. An hours worth of continuous listening at my gym (via edge) consumed 50% battery life, and about 50mb down data, and 1.5mb up data. FWIW. A few times I had to restart the uSirius player when it quit streaming. While driving, it seems that the player doesn't work as well, I guess it doesn't like switching towers. But still, not bad at all for BETA software!

    If someone knows more about the feed quality, please chime in. I did a bunch of this 'stream quality' research when signing up for the standard radio account and the premium internet account in early 2007, and just regurgitating it from memory.

    HTH.

    I could not tell that from the fist! lol ohh wait yeah me too!

    I looked on their web site and it looks like they are working on an XM one as well. Also if the merger goes through it may not matter!!
