Default Cool Way to get your Favorite Channel in iTunes

I love Sirius, don't get me wrong. However I have always been very disappointed with the sound quality. With the premium online service though I started thinking of ways to always enjoy my favorite Sirius channel (BBC Radio 1) in its full 130 kbps glory. I have found a solution that works really well for me..

Setup a Mac (PC will work too but you will get disconnected after a period of inactivity) and tune it to your favorite Sirius Channel.

Connect your computer to a Barix Instreamer. This will take the audio feed from your computer and broadcast it to internet.

I can now listen to that channel in iTunes whenever I feel inclined and don't need to worry with the WMP plugin, a web browser, or the stupid capitcha!

Also, in my car I use TCPMP to log into my channel with my Treo. Using the Verizon EVDO network I can stream the full broadband quality stream in my car. The plus is that I don't have to worry about authenticating why driving.

this may seem simple but it has really improved my personal sirius listening experience.

I just use SiriusWM5. No middleman that way, and I can change channels.

How do you install SiriuCE or SiriusWM5 on a T-Mobile MDA?

yes, you can use Sirius WM5 (which I did for a while)...but the connivence of playing my favorite channel in iTunes far outweighs any negatives for me.

plus, as i said, typing the capitcha while driving in Sirius WM5 is just not too smart.
