Default Can I use my car Sirius to listen to Sirius on my laptop?

Newbie question: I have a Sirius radio (Alpine CDA-9847) with a satellite tuner (DEI-SPC1&DEI-SPR1) for my car. Is there a way I can access my Sirus subscription through my laptop? Some accessory needed perhaps?
Thanks!

I'm not quite sure what you want to do...

Do you want to take the laptop in the car with you and listen on your laptop speakers instead of the car speakers. (I don't know why anyone would want to do this )

If you have line out jacks on your head unit, you can buy a cable that goes from the head unit to the input of the sound card on your laptop.

Or.. Do you want to somehow lisen on the laptop from a distance.. (ie, your car is parked in the driveway and you listen on the laptop in your house) ?

You'll need to connect an RF modulator to the line out jacks on your head unit (if you have any).. This will transmit a signal to a radio in your house. You can then take the output of the radio and plug it into your laptop's sound card input.

Of course, if you're in the house, as Darkspoon says.. It's much easiser to just stream the audio directly from Sirius over the net.
