Right up until recently I was recording Howard 100 using Pulsar and Audio Hijack but they are discontinuing Pulsar as Sirius XM are trying to kill 3rd part apps that stream their channels (yes, you have to be a subscriber to do so).

I record the show for listening later due to my unusual work hours (I'm asleep when the show airs).

Does anyone else record the show (mac user here)?

What applications do you use?

Pulsar was nice, too bad we can't use it any more.


I still occasionally use Audio Hijack for recording XM, I keep an output of my Delphi receiver plugged into my Mac Mini. Works fine, of course you must leave the receiver turned on.

I use an Antex XM100 receiver as the source. It allows you to setup timers so that the station will change for various programs.


I then use Audio HiJack Pro to do the recording and dump it into a directory.


There's a python script I found a few years back to actually generate the RSS feed and then I use Apache to serve it to iTunes and have some other scripts setup so that it just refreshes when needed and right away, meaning, 1 min after the recording has ended it builds the RSS feed and hits up iTunes to refresh that particular feed.


It works quite well.


I would think that you'd be able to start the XM Online streamer and set the channel with the right parameters, and then use Audio HiJack Pro to record from Safari, or Chrome, or whatever it is you like to use, but I have never tried it.

My God, why make this so complicated.


Just go on EBay and Buy either a Stiletto 100, or a Stiletto 2. With BOTH the car dock, and home dock, it will probably run you around $180 for everything. Probably a little less for the Stiletto 100 since it is a little older.


I do the same thing you do. I let my Stiletto 100 record the show, then I listen too it at my leisure. I also FF through all the commercials. And if Howard is interviewing, or doing something I could a give rats a** about, I simply FF/Skip through it all.


That is what I would do.

OR, you could just do what I do,

I use a Sony Minidisc recorder, the JB940 unit.

I have recorded Eddie Trunks show on Hair Nation many times for

future listening.

However, be FOR WARNED: If buying an md MiniDisc unit off of Ebay

MOST sellers will lie, and

say the unit is in 100% perfect working condition, and

when you get it, it`s broke!

THERE ARE NOT ALOT OF REPAIR MAN THAT YOU CAN TAKE THESE TOO ANYMORE TO GET FIXED!

PARTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE, I RAN INTO THIS PROBLEM 3 TIMES IN 2010-2012.

IF you can find 1 off of Craigslist, so you can go and TEST it, BEFORE buying it!

The sound quality, is as good as listening to the radio itself, and it does NOT degrade!

they do not make it easy anymore, that is for sure.


on windows, i use chrome to log into the sirius app.

i run a program called SiriusKA. (i think it is just mouse macro software)

once that is all going, any type of PC recording software will do the trick. I use Total Recorder Professional 7


not as easy as it was with Roque's software but it works.

Recording SirusXM Online

Once upon a time I used XM Tuner, then I used SiriusXMStreamer.  

On 2014-04-17 SXMS stopper working.  

After trying a bunch of stuff I hit on this decent solution for recording.

1. Start SiriusXM Online player

2. Choose the channel you want to listen to

Your address bar will look like this:
https://www.siriusxm.com/player/#view=channels

3. Now click Now Playing. 

Your address bar will read something like this
https://www.siriusxm.com/player/#view=nowPlaying&channelId=siriuspatriot

4. Download and Start Replay Radio 9 ($29.95)

5. In RR9 Skip the Quick record nonsense and click Schedule Tab

6. Right Click and Select New to creat a show

7. Type a name (Example WM_{Y}-{M}-{D} The YMD adds date to the name

8. In the URL copy and paste URL from step 3 above.

9. Set Capture to Record Audio Output

10. Set Launch to In Tuner

11. Set Convert and Media Folder to your choice

12. Select Tuning Tab and add URL form Step

and set Player to Browser

13. Select Tags and set to your choice

14. Right Click on show and select Start Recording

I use Audacity software to record the streams. It has a bit of a steep learning curve but it is easy to use once your familiar with it.

I set up the Audacity, log onto the Sirius player and hit record.

The sound quality is actually better (slightly) than listening directly from the Satellite. I get no compression artifacts.

I personally use it to record their On Demand shows so I can burn them to CD to play on my main stereo.

And it is Mac friendly.

I downloaded Audacity. I downloaded the SiriusXM Player. How do I get the audio into the Audacity input? It wants to use the laptop microphone.

If you're trying to record what you hear, you'll need a full-duplex sound card. If your laptop doesn't have that, then you can't do it. Head to the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage audio devices > Recording tab. Right click "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices." Checkmark both. If you don't see something like "stereo mix," then you have a half-duplex card. If you DO see "stereo mix" set it as your default, then go into your recording program and set the input accordingly. (I use Adobe Audition, so I'm only familiar with that).

I don't have SXM internet, so I just jack my SXM radio into the computer's line input, set Audition for delayed start and go on about my day. I've recorded about a dozen hours of Spa that way, edited out the spoken IDs and copied the file onto my phone to help me sleep on flights.

Bingo!

Thanks, DrDon.

Sure enough, my Mac Air has only a micropbone input.I have the SXM app on my iPhone. Perhaps I can get a 3.5mm male to male cord and use it as a source. I used to have a stand-alone receiver but no longer do. I too like SPA to fall asleep on long flights.

You'll need an external sound card, then. I don't work in the Mac world, but I've been carrying around a SoundBlaster USB device for some time. Used to do a lot of broadcasts from Nashville. I always had my laptop connected to the audio console so if the line back to the station dropped, I could continue doing the show and e-mailing the breaks back to the studio. Actually happened during a New York broadcast. Laborious, but listeners never knew there'd been an issue.
