    Talking App Request - Sirius radio
    It would be amazing if someone could develop and IPhone app that will play Sirus or XM Radio!!

    right now i am using ORB and USirius with eachother to stream my sirius radio to my iphone. it actually works pretty well but i have to manually enter the ch. and well thats not easy when you have 100+ stations. if someone could work on this app that would be great.. i would but i do not know the proper code for the IPHONES.. so yea!!! Good Luck!

    I belong to the above forum. Dave, the site owner, has been working on this problem since the iPhone came out. He is stuck with finding a transcoding solution due to the fact the Sirius stream is in Windows Media format. This format is not native to the iPhone. I also use Orb and USirius. For some weird reason Orb transcodes the Windows Media format automatically to a .mp3. If anyone can provide some help on this front please let me know or go to www.geekstoolbox.com and let Dave know.

    It's not the fact on how to convert. It's easy to convert. It's just very "outside" dependent. With orb you have to have a dedicated Windows machine running all the time with two programs, with a few ports open through your firewall. It's not for the faint of heart or the non-technical. Also for us Mac people there is no option. Luckily, I use a Windows machine at work with high bandwidth so they don't mind.

    They wouldn't have to develop an app. If there was a way to get a Safari plug in to read Windows Media files we would be in bussiness.
