Nope, they aren't in the building.

I did see the room where they combine all channels into one signal... in the same room, the computer that uplinks the high-bitrate feed.

Your story doesn't add up. It sounds more like you were invited to experience what few fans can and you are trying to make it sound as if proof of your visit makes you a "Sirius insider" or more important than any other fan on this site.

FYI...McGraw Hill bldg has a security booth you need to check in at before you can access the elevators. they take your picture and give you a badge with your pic on it. when you get out of the elevator on the 36th floor, you need to sign in at the Sirius security desk before you can access the Sirius lobby.

Sirius security takes your badge away before you get on the elevators to go back down to the lobby.

I think you may have cached to the wrong server, the old defunct one.

Try this (solution for Windows):
(1) Close the browser.
(2) Go to Start.
(3) Go to Run.
(4) Type in ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter. A screen will pop up really quickly then go away.
(5) Open up your browser and try again.

I think you moved your site without lowering the Time To Live values on your DNS records. Unfortunaly, for people that are on an ISP that caches DNS results, the above flushing of DNS does not work.

Cool pics. If I am ever in NY I would like to see the uplink stuff. Don't know anyone though so I'll have to bribe a Hard Attack DJ. Tacos, Pot and Beer.

Regarding some of the uplink related stuff, here are the uplink dishes in Vernon, NJ

There are 3 feeder satellite dishes and one receiving dish too. IIRC, when SIRIUS had satellite control in NYC, they were remotely controlling these dishes.

Thanks for the pictures....cool stuff!
That's the closest many of us will ever get to the inside of the Sirius studios.
