It sucked not having a clock on the display. This was a very welcome update for me. Now if they would give us the ability to turn off the auto-dim and auto-off, I'd be totally happy, along with 128kb streaming!

WOW! I actually listened to the high quality stream for the first time! It is an amazingly noticable difference! for some reason they only charged me 1.05 but whatever... This will be incredible when it is available on the stiletto... It sounds just like Satellite!

They charged me the same $1.05. I told my buddy (who is on my account) about it and he upgraded too. Same $1.05. Then after like a week or so it charged me the rest of the amount. Kind of weird.

I did the upgrade Sunday, It took them until today to actually charge me and it was only the 1.05... I will have to do some comparison but this might even be better quality then sattelite....

I think technically it's about the same. I would give the cake to SAT though (IMO). I hear a lot more "compression" or "drops" in the Internet Stream. It's definitely worth it to upgrade. I love it.

Now when you can get it on the stiletto, that will be the day. Wow, what a thought. A fully fuctioning stiletto, with a clock and high bitrate streaming. Oh sorry, just daydreaming...

This is a pro-rated amount. It appears that you all upgraded about the same time of your billing month. It is all based on the day in which you activated your original receiver. The only days that it is not the actual date in which you subscribed is on the 29th, 30th, or 31st due to the fact that February having only 28 days 75% of the time.

The ability is said to be included in the next update (whenever the heck that is) but I was also told that doesn't mean it would be available until SIRIUS decided to roll it out themselves at some point. The hope that just having the Premium service would mean this would happen automatically apparently isn't the case. But who knows for sure? We'll have to wait until the Stiletto can actually do the 128kb streaming and then see how or if they will allow us to actually stream at that bitrate or not.
