Smile Stiletto Now Has All the SIR Online Channels via Wifi

I was listening to my Stiletto via wifi this morning. Was getting ready to switch over to Stern. I noticed there were more categories. So I started flipping around and it now appears that all the channels that are available via the SIR online service are now available on the Stiletto Internet Radio (Wifi).

Seems Martha and OutQ were moved out of the Howard category. Martha has her own category, OutQ is now in the Entertainment category, along with Sirius Stars, Maxim Radio, Cosmo and Playboy. There is now a Comedy category with Raw Dag, Blue Collar Comedy and Laugh Break. Family & Kids category has Kid's Stuff. Talk category has Sirius Patriot and Sirius Left. Last but not least Sports category has Sirius Football Channel, which is really the NFL Channel.

All the backgrounds, channel icons and voice tags are there as well. Not sure when it updated, but it did it in the background while I was listening. This one of the GREAT features of the Stiletto in that they can make changes apparently almost on the fly.

PS: I just realize the Metropolitan Opera is now showing up in the Classics category as well. R&B and Hip Hop are in separate categories now too.

This is a pleasant surprise! I use the Internet Radio (Wifi) mode almost exclusively while at work, having these added categories and channels is really, really going to make the Stiletto just that much better. WOW, I can now listen to Sirius Football Channel while at the office. YEAH BABY!

I assume you must have ZAP: 1.0.2.18248r in order to get the updated channels, so if anyone hasn't updated their Stiletto they would need to do that.

Anyone else get these new channels yet. I assume you must listen to Wifi for a period of time for all this to happen. Let me know!

Mine are not updated.

I tried MSS and it said no updates available. I'm going to force a channel reset and if that does not work, I'm going to leave it on wifi for an hours or so this morning to see if that might do it. I'll report back after these two tries.

No you can't get the updates via MSS this time. This isn't a firmware update. This is just an update via Wifi. So you must leave it on wifi for whatever period of time. I had mine on most of the night, so I am not sure when it updated. So, just let it play on Wifi for awhile. There is no need to reset or any of that. I guess it could take up to 20 minutes or longer to do this, but that is purely a guess on my part, it may take more or less time. Sorry I can't be more specific.

Well I tried a channel update through sirius.com, but after 10 minutes it never sent the signal and I tried it again and it failed to send because it is still in the queue to send, so they must have some issue with sending re-activiation signals.

I'll leave it on wifi until I have to go to work and look at the status on the Service Info to see if it downloads.

Everyone needs to remember this is not a ZAP update, so you won't get this via MSS. You must connect to Wifi and leave it connected for a period of time for it to update. This should actually be a seamless update and you shouldn't have to do anything else to get it to show up.

Let me know Rubin how it goes. I wish I knew how long it took to download. I also didn't see where it said anything had download via the service info screen either. It is almost like this just happens on the fly. But maybe because I had changed channels and stuff that download notice had aready gone away.

I have never used the wifi feature yet, because I tried access some but I need a password to get into it. So I couldn't find any free wifi spots near me. But I found a list of some free wifi spots somewhat around me. So sometime today I'll try one of those free wifi spots and see what you are talking about. Plus I would like to start using my wifi feature one of these days!

I'll leave mine on wi-fi overnight tonight when I get home and see what happens.

What do people who can't use wi-fi do to update their channel list? Sort of stinks that's the only way to do it right now.

The last update was done via MSS, this is simply a WIFI update for WIFI channels... so it makes sense that you'd update them via WIFI.
