Default 2 questions from a newbie

i'm this is rudimentary knowledge but.... 1 - how is the sirius internet radio player different from just listening online? does this now mean i can transmit the sirius audio from my computer to the wirelessly to the speakers throughout my house via my home receiver? if not, how can i do that without running wires form my computer to the receiver? unlike the car units i cannot pick what fm station to transmit through.what station would i tune in to? also, what exactly ARE the "fm out" and the "line out" for on the back of my s50? would using a 12v to 6v or even 9v powersource damage the unit? i'm sure these topics have been discussed before, please excuse the's just that there are thousands of helpful posts and it's somewhat overwhelming. thanks so much for not counting the number of questions too!

1) Listening online: You don't have to mount your antenna and you don't have dropouts. Yes, you can transmit wirelessly.
2) FM out is for the FM Direct Adapter (sold at and LINE out is for headphones or speakers.
3) The S50 is supposed to be 5V, not 12, 6 or 9. I wouldn't risk the chance.
