SiriusXM through my receiver?
I recently got SiriusXM in my car and liked it so I got the all access package. Now I noticed that my receiver (Onkyo TX-SR605) has connections for Sirius and XM. I like recording some things off SiriusXM and can do so using Firefox and Audacity, but it tends to be flakey, often just stopping or pausing to ask if I'm still listening or dropping quality because the connection supposedly isn't fast enough. It should be.
Anyway, if I get a Sirius or XM receiver (are they the same thing now?), can I plug that into the receiver and use some output to record on the PC without having the web mess things up? I don't think the PC audio has an optical or coax input, although I may have some SoundBlaster external card that does. But I could use good old RCA jacks (analog) if I have to. I don't think the SiriusXM signal is of such high quality that it will matter.
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
