i just hear way to much ridiculous music i have to have it! i just signed up for the internet radio the other day. How can i record songs i hear playing on the radio to play again later or put on my ipod?

Ideally I will eventually get a sirius mp3 player, but not anytime soon and I already have a comp and an ipod.

Or is there a good site to download the songs from?

I'd like both options this way when im at work listening i can write the songs down and go home later and download them.

thanks guys.

XM has a function called XM/Napster where you can flag a song as a "favorite" and be automatically prompted to purchase it when you next connect the receiver to your computer. Sirius might have a similar function but I'm not as familiar with their service. In either case, you could write down the artist/song and purchase it from iTMS later on.

On my Mac I can use a product called Audio Hijack that will record any system audio. I am sure there is a similar product for windows.

It would be easier if you just went into Walmart or Best Buy and just jammed 20 or 30 CD's down your pants and walked out. much easier to steal music that way, plus you get the cover art and everything.

I use a product called Replay A/V. It will record any audio source. Google for it, the forum wont let me post a url since i'm a n00b.

The coolest thing about it is that it automatically detects the song titles and artists and properly labels the mp3's.

I guess you've been pretty well programmed by the media companies. You need to unlearn what you think you have learned.

Recording something for you own use is legal. If you think otherwise, then I suggest you stop using your VCR/DVR too.

Actually, the OP's way is much easier.

I record the Howard Stern show everyday with a program called Super MP3 Recorder.
This program allows scheduled recordings, file sizes by minutes, bitrates, stereo/mono, etc.

Best thing to do is get a DishNetwork subscription. You get Sirius on Dish as part of their programming package. The best thing about this is that with receivers such as their 622 you can schedule recordings. As far as I know D* does not allow audio only recording on Tivo or their DVRs but Sirius does and the ability to record shows in advance and unattended is great. If you want to take the programs, songs, operas, whatever on the road you can do so by downloading them to an Archos device known as a Pocketdish. The Pocketdish will download and play back movies and tv shows you have recorded as well so you have a double bonus. Also, the 622 provides for not only HD video recording but it hooks up to your home theater system for the best possible sound. A system like this can not be beat!

here are some very short samples of total recorder pro recordings

this is with my sirius radio plugged into my yamaha surround receiver, pre-outs from the yamaha receiver into the computers sound card "line in"

sirius channel 9 (the pulse, 90s music)

http://rapidshare.com/files/40352294...nel_9.mp3.html

sirius channel 80 (symphony hall)

http://rapidshare.com/files/40352344...el_80.mp3.html

total recorder pro also let's you edit sound files, record in dozens of formats and bit rates both mono and stereo, scheduling with built in web browser. you can have it turn on at a certain time, navigate to a website and activate a stream. recordings can repeat every day, week-ends only, week-days only or pick any days you want to repeat. set up all the recording events you wish

record from your sound card or from software, or just record from your sound cards "line in" input

great customer service and free upgrades when new version come out

The problem with all these recording protocols is that you are recording analog, not digital. Your sound quality (if you care) will be less than FM quality.

Your best bet is to play internet radio using Winamp and use Streamripper for Winamp to make MP3s of songs.

I installed a Sirius SC-H1 (optical output) with SXrecorder this weeked and its pretty cool software. As I already have Sirius in the car, adding a second home unit was half price so the whole thing (hardware and subscription) was less than 200 dollars. It generates mp3s with the artist name and title automatically and painlessly. I recoginize that satellite radio isn't exactly CD quality but for supplying music in my mp3 player for running or working out this is a great option. Big thanks to Alex and Mitch.

I don't like people pirating music (even though I do from time to time) but what you said is far from the truth.. Next time alteast type what you can believe yourself..

there are a couple of sirius radios with digital outputs

if you have a soundcard with a digital I/O, you can record in the digital domain

google video downloader 2.0, it lets you dl flash videos from youtube and some other sites, when you are unzinpping that program, inside theres a little application thats called "freecorder toolbar" its a toolbar for your browser.
Its awesome it records anything coming out of your speakers on your pc, if you listen to xm online, just hit the record button on the toolbar and choose what folder it will go in.
Best of all you can choose what quality is going to record in, best of all its free!

I have hundreds of dollars into the set up. I also have total recorder pro (great product) But Hands down go with SX recorder - its SO much easier. Once you get the settings you like let it run! Heck I had to get a 500Gig usb drive just for my mp3's.

I look at this way - I'm paying for Sirius and I'm NOT trading the music with anyone that isnt already on my "family plan" with them. I'm only loading my ipod for Workouts & Walks. I got rid of my Stiletto because it was way too big compared to my 8gig Nano. And a LOT less capacity.

Mitch you ROCK!! Thanks again.

By far the easiest way to record Sirius shows or bulk music is with Replay A/V. Logs into Sirus, selects the channel, captures and then converts the actual bitstream for the highest quality. No Sirius application needed to run for Replay A/V. Also, recording songs can be done individually (with recognition and tagging) via Replay Music (part of the Replay Suite). A little pricey, but worth it.

Automatically? I.e. it creates new mp3 files when the artist/song changes? If so, can it save the 128bit stream as an mp3 without having to re-compress losing data?

Replay Music does not record via stream, it requires the Sirius Online tuner and records the decoded analog, then compresses to mp3 (or many other formats). But it will automatically create a new file when the song changes (silence level/length needed is adjustable). After splitting the file, it attempts to identify the song, then tag it with Title/Artist/Album. Works with Rhapsody, internet radio, etc., too.

Replay A/V will login to your account and record directly via stream with no quality loss when converted to mp3, but it does not have the splitting/tagging functionality of Replay Music. It is convenient for recording shows (like Howard), because you can schedule the login/logout time and it will wake up your computer and record unattended.

You can free trial each program here:
