Thanks for the note, excellsior!

Jeremy or Leo, could we build this kind of functionality into the SE? That way, I can be listening at home (or online) and get an alert when my favorite band/song comes on? Or would it have to be tied to a PCR-type device?

The problem is the development community. I write in VB.Net and other write in vb 6 or C++ or C#. The other problem is the server currently hosting itsonsirius.com can not handle that kind of load.

In the end, I think having a song seek feature on the online streams would be the way to go, but I don't think we'd ever get SIRIUS to agree. There are a few other issues too... Like I don't have access to the username/password database for the online streaming.

Then there is time to dedicate to this. In the end, I will be working more on the SIRIUS radio control software for my own use before I will be writting anything for online use. I want Song Seek at my desk!

This is doable for Sirius if we have something similar like XMPCR.

I just realized that. Someone at XM411 was complaining about Ziggy copy the idea so I decided to take a closer look.

It turns out, XMXP made a pop window with song alerts.

Ziggy improve the idea by having a downloadable program

Now XMXP decided to replace the pop windows with a downloadable program.

No, XMXP is not replace popup window with downloadable program. The web based version is stil there and you just need to setup it and run the alerter in the background. SO there are two versions out there.

If you could provide the now playing list in a text file like

5,Lloyd Price,Stagger Lee
6,Marty Robbins,El Paso
7,GLADYS KNIGHT &,On And On
8,Larry Elgart Orc,Hooked On Swing
9,Boyz Ii Men,4 Seasons Of Lon
10,T. G. Sheppard,Tryin' To Beat T
11,TANYA TUCKER,TWO SPARROWS IN

The load on the server will be very miminal. If we have huge demand on this, we can move to a more dedicated server. What is your thought?

How about this:

http://www.itsonsirius.com/streams.php

Load that, right click on it then choose view source... PM Me if you want something different, it would be really easy to modify to be just a text file.
