Seems like you just hit Internet on the Stiletto and it lets you listen without entering any info. And do you have the "Sirius Premier" or "Sirius All Access"?
OK. I will try to clear things up on my end.
I have Sirius SELECT(just checked my account info as I type this), which I prepaid for 1 year at $93 in Feb 2012. I have prepaid for 1 year since I first got Sirius back in 2004. No LIFETIME, and NO Internet signup.
With the Stilleto 100, you are correct rc05. There is nothing to type in(only the password for anyone's WPA-2 protected wireless if needed). No account info. Nothing. Just click on the Internet Radio Icon, and let it connect Wirelessly.
That's it. And with that you get a ton of extra channels which include all the MLB play-by-play channels, including MLB Home Plate.
I will look to see if I get Opie and Anthony(and Ron and Fez), and also some other channels I may be interested in. I will let you know.
But there are downsides to the internet connection:
1. The sound is even worse than from the satellite. Fine for Talk/play by play, bt sucks for music.
2. I don't "think"(if someone can clarify this for me, that would be great), yo can RECORD off the internet stream. Not sure about that. Which would also mean you can't setup a record time for internet fed material on the Stilleto 100.
I could be wrong about that, so if someone knows, let me know. I will try to find my manual, if i can, too see if it explains that or not.
But I am not a lifetime sub. NEVER subscribed to internet service(only had it when it was free for everyone who was a sub).
If memory serves me correctly, I think I even tried to download the app on my Ipad. I downloaded it, but did not have the info neccesary for LOGIN. I will try again. But I am pretty sure I failed at that before.
