    I'm trying to get Sirius on my Droid with Skyfire. It "looks" like it's working, as I can pull up the online player, but I get no audio. Has anyone been successful? Any suggestions?

    I heard Sirius was releasing an app for Android... is this what you are referring to or the actual online player within the browser? Have you checked your volume settings? Or your browser settings?

    I don't believe that the Sirius/Android app will get all the stations (Howard 100). So I thought I'd have more luck this way.
    My volume is up. What browser settings can I tweak?

    It might just not work. It's really only meant for flash videos, not streaming. Once proper flash 10 is added in June that should work.

    EDIT: I assumed this was a flash audio streaming thing you were trying to run. I don't know why else you would use Skyfire.

    There is a way to stream sirius with orb to your droid. I had it setup for awhile but since flashing a new ROM I haven't bothered to set it back up. Basically what you do is use siriusxm streamer on your pc along with orb (both free) then you get orb on your droid (10 bucks) and your set. It works extremely well. Search this forum for "sirius orb" or something like that and you should find the thread with a guide.

    Here is the one I made for you before. Pretty easy to do. Ive never had a problem changing roms..all you have to do is download the Orb app and that is it. Should have everything there since all of the data is coming from your computer not your Droid.

    I believe that Sirius uses a Windows Audio Streaming Codec (or something like it)... so you won't be able to get it streaming even with Flash.

    Wunderradio streams real Sirius to Android. All the channels avail on pc. H100 , NFL, MLB, etc. Not the limited content of the official Sirius app
    The app is new for Android so there are some issues to work out, namely the Sirius stream still skips a bit, but hey, it works The app has been solid in the iphone for a long time now so I assume the kinks will soon worked out.

    I looked at the product and no place on the web site nor in their support area does it mention Sirius?? SO, before I spend $7, how are you doing it when there is no mention of it on the site and you would think it would be a huge selling points. do you log in with your Sirius credentials in some way?

    never occurred to me to Google it, one would assume the web site of the product itself or the support forum or the Market listing would have a mention of it... stupid me for assuming so :rolleyes:

    Of course, I can't speak for the developer. But, I might assume that they might be trying to fly under Sirius' radar, as last year their attorneys dropped the boom on all the work around apps for listening to Sirius in unauthorized ways, uSirius and Shoutcast streamers, etc.

    Yeah but if your an existing Sirius customer, it only costs an extra $2.

    on top of the rising base sub fee, on top of the base internet fee (that use to be free), on top of the music royalty fee (new last year)...

    Seems like it is getting mixed reviews in the market. Lot of comments about stream dropping out, restarting.

    The Sirius app (Canadian) has been great, no drop outs or anything for me. I have a Sirius radio in my car and it costs me no extra to listen on the app.
