    Just as the title indicates....

    What about an app that works like the online media player for Sirius/XM online listeners?

    Well, hopefully early next year Android will support Flash...and then Sirius' online player should work through the browser. I'd rather that than what iPhone has which is a limited function (no Stern) PAID service.

    I am able to log into my account and select channel, but no sound. Is this what everyone else is experiencing?

    If you don't mind a little work, you can make this happen with a couple desktop programs

    SiriusStreamer - Sirius Internet Radio Stream Proxy

    and TVersity to transcode the streams for use with Android

    It took me a lot of trial and error, but it works. At least until Sirius finds another way to screw it's paying customers.

    I'm not afraid to get a little dirty, can you offer any advice or instructions to save me a little frustration?

    Hi. I'm actually the developer of SiriusStreamer. I have a new version that I will be releasing in the next day or so that takes all of the grunt work out of using TVersity to transcode the streams. If you'd like to test it out in it's "rough" stages, and don't mind the possibility of a few bugs, PM me.

    Rather than service individual requests, I've decided to go ahead and release the latest version, which includes TVersity transcoding support. Please visit the website to download: SiriusStreamer - Sirius Internet Radio Stream Proxy

    Please note, this application does not run on your Android device. It requires a Windows PC to host the application with the configured ports accessible to your device.

    Please feel free to ask any question that you may have. Thanks!

    It should. If they're not showing up in the channel list for some reason, go to the Options menu and choose "Refresh Channel Lineup".

    As far as I'm aware, the Droid doesn't support WMA streams directly, so you'd need to have something in between to transcode the stream to MP3. A lot of people have reported success using Orb: how it works | Orb Networks

    Endless. I tried your program on windows 7 with Orb. It starts opening many ports on my router till my router slows to nothing. It starts with the default port then opens another one 1 port up and then another port one number up from this. It does this about 20 times, then again.

    I like the program and it does work, but I cant do anything else with all my router ports being open.

    Have you seen this before

    That's definitely not SiriusStreamer! The only port it needs is the one configured on the Configuration tab, and that needs to be opened manually in your firewall. If you're using Orb, I don't think even that port needs to be open to the outside. It sounds like Orb may be doing something funky. Unfortunately, I've never used Orb, so I'm not at all familiar with it or the ports it needs, but opening 20 does sound a bit excessive. It may be worth posting over on the Orb forums to see if anyone there has any ideas: Orb Community - View forum - Orb for Windows

    Sorry I can't offer any more assistance than that...

    Hey Endless,
    can you tell me if there is going to be an app for xm radio (for droid) in the near future. It would be great to get my skydoc out of my car.

    The next version of SiriusStreamer will actually be called SiriusXMStreamer and include XM support. I expect to have that ready in the next couple of days.

    You could also try XMTuner which is available now: XM Tuner - Stream XM Radio to your media player

    If you're looking for a native Droid application, I'm not sure if anyone is working on one of those.

    This looks promising. The windows and wm5 apps work great.

    I have released a new version, with a name change to SiriusXMStreamer that now includes XM Radio Online support in addition to Sirius support, as well as direct playback from within the application. More information, and a download link can be found on the website at: SiriusXMStreamer - Sirius|XM Internet Radio Stream Proxy

    Thanks!

    Pete,
    Please make sure you have Microsoft.Net Framework 3.5 installed on your machine and try it again.

    Has anyone successfully installed this on the Droid??? I've tried and I get the content not support on this phone. Just wanted to check, or I may not have the .net framework you mentioned above, btw, what is the link to get the .net framework?

    Thanks community

    I just Got it up and running on my Droid and its working great! I installed the SiriusXMStreamer and the installed orb on my computer ( I have a Mac so I also installed windows). I went to the homepage of Orb and sign in to my account. Went to audio portion in Orb, went to the custom settings in audio and copied the name and url from the SiriusXMStreamer to my orb account. Went to my browser on my Droid and went to the Orb site and signed in. There was my Howard 100 channel there and it worked perfectly! Thanks endless! I have been looking for something else since USirius stopped working.

    Hello Developer, the whole orb thing is way to much effort for me. If you can find a way to get your app working on the droid people will even pay for your app, so long as you can get it out before flash gets released. HUGE PROFIT OPPORTUNITY, sirius listening is a huge demand, especially since we can connect our droid directly to our car stereo system and eliminate the use of anything else other then just our phone.
    keep us updated on this thread.
