Default Home dock on the way - now what do I do with Stiletto?

I got into sat radio about a month ago when I learned the Met Opera received a dedicated channel to broadcast its performances on Sirius. I checked around the web (mostly this site) and learned the newest flavor of the day was the Stiletto, so I bought one. It has worked well but I don't use it in the car or as a portable unit and I don't have broadband out here so wifi is not applicable. Nor do I have a repeater within 100 miles of me. Basically, all I could do was put the device on my deck, record the opera (hope for no drop outs) and listen to it later. I ordered the home dock to make things easier and it is on the way, according to TSS.

In the mean time, I transfered my sat tv service from Directv to Dish, which allows me to receive Sirius and record my performances directly to their PVR - like tivo. I even have the PVR hooked to my home theater and the sound is great! Since I went with Dish, I have not even taken the Stiletto out of the drawer.

Now that the home dock is on the way I've been trying to determine how I can utilize all this stuff. I have a year subscription to Sirius on the Stiletto but I wondering how the home dock will now help me seeing how Dish does everything I was looking for. In fact, if I had known all about Dish and how it worked I probably would not have purchased the Stiletto.

I was thinking of putting the dock in my bedroom and listen at night before going to sleep; however, I have Dish in my bedroom tv too and have headphones attached to it. I can listen anywhere on my property by using my wireless headphones attached to my tvs and home theater amp.

I really don't want to sell because the Stiletto seems to be a neat device, even with the bugs that every piece of new equipment seems to have. I transfer the recordings from the Dish PVR to my mini-disk player and that is what I use to travel with and is the only portable device I need.

I know it is sort of a silly question but does anyone have any ideas as to the best way I can now utilize this equipment? For those of you who have Dish or other Sirius receivers, how are you using the Stiletto?

Lightbulb ?????????

I see no point on using the dish network or whatever service you use.

The Stiletto has portability, access to every channel on the Sirius lineup. 100 hours of recording time, automatic radio replay option (my favorite), and a tivo.

Just get a direct wire in to your home stereo in the aux port. The Stiletto is the flag ship of Satellite radio gadgets. Why use anything less, especially when you already have a Stiletto?

Honestly, I don't get it. It's like asking why drive a Ferrari when you have a Ford?
