    I want to update to 2.2 but the Sirius app doesn't work well with 2.2...it just continuously loops so I was wondering if anyone had tried to play it with the browser and the flash player. I use Sirius all day at work so its a must.

    I've heard about the issues with Sirius, but it seems to be just fine for me right now. I streamed a good part of yesterday with no issue.

    It works as well for me as it did on 2.1. I have some problems with it freezing up but it did that on 2.1 too.

    Yeah on the original Droid with the leaked 2.2 (way back when) the Sirius app had a weird issue where it would play for a minute or so then suddenly loop back to the point in the song where it first started. If you weren't paying close attention, it would just seem like the song went on forever, lol.

    I haven't tried it on the X yet, but it's nice to hear it may not be an issue.

    Unfortunately the website player still does not work although it seems like the Flash component itself is working like it should. I got all the way up to actually selecting the channel and hitting the play button but no sound. I believe it uses media player to actually stream the music and not Flash or else it would work. This was probably done on purpose to help circumvent mobile playback. If someone could come up with a media player plugin, it might work.

    I am using the sirius app right now on my DX(2.2) and it is working perfectly. I had an original droid and now the droid x but on both phone I had the issue of the looping. I think it happens when there is a network problem, or you lose your data connection for like a second and it comes back. I'm not sure I'm just throwing out suggestions. What always fixes it though for was closing the app, using my task killer and killing the app, and then relaunching sirius.

    The only issue I have is where it will stop broadcasting after awhile. It has a message about user timeout or something like that

    I too have updated to 2.2 and I am using the Sirius/XM app with no problems. I am even using it along with Appalarm to wake up in the mornings. Has been reliable since the update last Friday.

    i have a dx running 2.1 and the sirius app audio seems to cut out and random intervals. and sometimes it returns quickly, but other times it takes several minutes. i hope they update the app not with 2.2 coming out.

    This is more based on your connection, I would think. What I like to do is make sure I turn it to airplane mode first, turning that off, and then turning on the Sirius XM app....tends to make it keep going at a solid connection.
