    sorry, i don't know if i made that clear enough. you need an account in order to login to sirius/xm. whether that is a 30 day free trial or a paid monthly subscription, but you need to have an account.

    and if you have an actual radio, you need to pay for the internet services in order to listen online (which is that $2.99/mo).

    i think if they were smart(er), they should develop more applications for more devices to open up their services to a broader range of people.

    Okay well I asked becuase I have an XM account for the radio in my car that costs x.xx/monthly (not sure exactly).

    BUT if I wanted to listen online or via XMicroPlayer on my desktop it would require me to pay AN EXTRA $2.99/monthly for the "internet streaming" package.

    That was what my question was regarding the .asf stream, but I think I answered it myself since the XMicroPlayer probably uses the asf stream and the extra $2.99/monthly is required for that to work.

    i have XM, but I grandfathered myself into the one year plan with internet for "free" until that expires. if i can't come up with a solution for android by the time that expires, i'll probably just cancel it.

    I didn't get grandfathered into the free internet plan for a year. They just **** mine off.

    Darn okay well I shall see what I come up with in my research.

    lol. did you pay for an entire year up front? cause that's what i did, and that's what you had to do (or get the lifetime).

    i'm glad i did, as i listened on my winmo device the entire time. my one year is up in jan. now i'm listening to pandora (which is meh).

    if i could figure out the stupid dev environment, i'd start coding my own apps to how i want them.

    I am looking into the dev environment, but I haven't learned Java although it resembles C# .NET which I know pretty well.

    I am taking a Java class in the spring so I will see what I come up with though.

    i took a java class, but i'm more familiar with VB. it's all the same, imo, that is if you don't let the technical jargon distract you and you just learn the code.

    once i get the dev up and my first hello world running, i'll be on FIRE! lol.

    you can do the streaming by using Orb with uSirius. I've been doing it for years. Works on Android

    i've read about that workaround and it's just that, a workaround. to be able to have channel control, store favorites and even record audio would be my goal in an application.

    gotcha. All i stream through orb are just my fav channels and orb lets you pick what station to listen to.
    I even stream home video to my droid through it. But i get what you mean by stand-alone app. Similar to the iPhone one (i had it)

    Actually I just went online and you can do everything except actually hear the audio. I signed in and the "player" popped up I selected Howard Stern, the Howard 100 then selected the station and it said now playing Howard 100. The only thing missing is the audio at this point. I think once flash comes out it'll be a go.
