Has anyone seen Sirius PC software anywhere? I saw a PC program for XM to control a receiver, but have not seen such a thing for Sirius. I'd love to control the radio on-screen via a car PC.

For 'net streaming, Sirius uses the Windows Media Player that comes with every MS computer.


If you're using Mozilla Firefox for a browser (highly recommended) then you will need Media Player 9. If IE, then you can get away with an older version of MP.


OTOH, I don't think you mean what you imply. If you're getting Sirius via satellite (antenna) then there is NO PC control s/w (nor for XM afaik). If you're getting it over the net (unlikely in a car) then see above.

Actually, XM *DID* have a PC front end at one time. I think they got rid of it for fear of service theft or other hacking/recording/whatever...


However, I connot even find this software anymore...

XM wants to turn the PC into a licensable device. Note their recent music "subscription" service.
