I've searched the web looking for a way to stream Sirius on my Centro (or any Palm device) with no luck.

Hasn't anyone developed an application that does this yet?

Probably not going to happen. Sirius (and XM) use the vastly inferior Windows Media streaming technologies.

Which means that someone would have to license and port the WMA codec to Palm and the DRM Wrapper that goes along with it.

Microsoft will not license the DRM to competitors, which is why none of the online WMA music stores (Yahoo, Napster, etc.) work with anything other than Windows machines. There have been attempts to reverse engineer it but I don't know if anyone's working on that for Palm.

It's a shame that they (XM & Sirius) got duped into crummy Microsoft technologies.

Found out that you can stream old Howard shows on the Centro for free by using the internet streaming capability of Pocket Tunes Deluxe (pTunes).

In pTunes, go to Tools>Internet Radio>Talk>CrystalOne DJ One.

After about a 1 minute commercial it will stream Howard.
