Default Sirius Equipment and other things

So, I haven't been able to decide what I want for Christmas. In reality, I would love to have an S50, but they are out of our budget. I got a Visor for my birthday and we already own a Sportster. I am so happy with Sirius, except that I cannot listen to Sirius here at our office. I bought the extended antenna and have it facing south, but it still doesn't come in. I think its because the office is at the bottom of some pretty tall hills. So, my husband and I hit Circuit City last night. The only radios they had in stock were Visors. At that, they only had 2 in the store. This is the largest Circuit City in Austin, and according to the clerk, they haven't been able to keep them is stock since Thanksgiving. So, we made our way to Comp USA. They had 3 radios in stock. 1 Visor and 2 XACT Replays. Again, they are having a hard time keeping their Sirius stock up. The clerk there said that as soon as the receive stock, they sell like hotcakes. I asked him had it always been this way. He stated, "Since it became apparent that the Texas Longhorns were going to the Rose Bowl, people started buying the receivers."

So, does anyone have any suggestions on what I should get for Christmas? I love listening to Sirius. And I listen online all the time, but I would rather be able to listen to CNN or ABC News and I can't do that online.

I, for one, was glad to see that Sirius is indeed selling! Although, I still don't know what I want for Christmas, it was a treat knowing that Sirius should have a great quarter!

The Xact Replay is a great unit, just like the starmate replay I believe. If you can get your hands on one of those I think you would be very happy with it. As far as reception in your office.. correct me if I'm wrong but since you are down in Texas... wouldn't it be best to point your antenna facing northward?
