Default Online premium player keeps disconnecting/buffering

I just paid for the upgrade to the the premium player and it can't keep a solid connection. Are there issues with the online player this morning? It keeps stopping and buffering. I have an extremely fast internet connection (Optimum Online w/boost 30mbit) with no other activity. This is quite disappointing to experience from a paid service since I have no problems streaming from various free streaming stations.

If you are listening to Howard 100 or 101 download the HS media player and howardstern.com and that is working fine, but the regular player is messed up

Same here. Using the widget and my playback keeps cutting out and buffering or just stopping totally.

I would guess must be a bandwidth or server issue @ Sirius.

i get through half a song, and it says buffering, or connecting to media. There is definately an issue. I have 2 internet pipes here that I load balance on for 10 megabits of connection, I don't think it's my internet. It doesn't seem to be channel related. Probably just a hiccup on the streaming servers they have.

Same problem for me and my sister. Obviously Sirius is having issues. Hopefully they get everything worked out. Boring without stuff to listen to at the office.

It figures they have problems the minute I sign up for the premium version.

Sounds like the same damn problems they're having with the signals across the country: keeps 'acquiring signal' and cutting in and out. This is getting to be a huge disappointment.
