Post MP3 art

1. I would like to see Sirius Stiletto be able to add album art for your Mp3's.
That would be cool.

2. Also a portable repeater like XM has. Because in my office I got XM's signal perfectly without repeater and have to yet to get a Sirius signal at all.
Sirius is great but I'm limited to just listening to Mp3's at work.

SIR presets! If I attempt to access a preset that is not part of SIR display an error message.

Auto wifi network switching. If I am connected to A with P signal strength, and I enter network B with P+Q network strength and Q is significant (25-50% better).. auto switch.

There is one on the car kit remote. Do you have a mute button on your car radio?

It's called the off button...

I'd just like to not have to fumble for the remote just to hit the mute...

Just to echo a few others ideas that I definitely think the Stiletto needs.

Sleep timer. Still not sure why / how they didn't include this one. The S50 had it. I like to listen at night sometimes in bed when I can't sleep and would wish it had a configurable sleep timer.

Clock on the main screen. This one is a no brainer.

I like both of BootsC5 ideas. Internet radio presets. I was expecting them to be there and was disappointed they were not.

The auto wifi switching feature would be cool, but probably a bit out of the realm as to what they will add at this point. Same goes with the album art for mp3s. Cool idea though.

I'd like to see some more stability updates. Sometimes my Stiletto gets flaky, especially in Internet mode. I don't know if it looses the internet signal or what, but sometimes after I bring it out of sleep mode and use the Internet / wifi mode, it will connect, display the list of channels, I'll choose the channel I want to listen to and it will start playing. Then after about a minute, it will drop back to the home screen and the internet playback will stop. Then if I go and re-connect and play that same channel, it will start playback all over again at the same point I started it before and then play through without problems. Kinda of like an un-intended replay feature on the Internet mode. Very weird.

Unhappy

As m3gatr0nX said a few echos,

Sleep Timer Would be nice. I am in the same boat as m3gatr0nX...

Clock on the main screen, It has been said many a time, I say it again.

Adapter for SSMB to SMB, for those of you that don't know what this is, the connection on the Stiletto is SSMB (AKA nano SMB ) The connection on nearly all other Sirius radios is SMB. This adapter would enable users to connect an external SMB antenna (not the antenna headphones ) I am too cheap for the home dock... Yet... I just spent 350 on a radio...

Open Accesory manufacturing, allow other companies to make more than just cases...

Added with Edit:

WiFi Presets

Pause/RW/FF capabilities with WiFi I know about the RIAA, AAIA, RISK, FAA, FGH, ASS, BLAH BLAH BLAH stuff... I am not talking about recording songs themselves (if i like a song enough I have ways of getting it) but being able to pause, rewind and fast forward internet radio. I don't see any legal troubles there. a million other streaming radio stations do it?

WiFi Proxy Configuration This is not one I have seen yet. I am a high school student and my school has Wifi throughout the entire school for students and teachers laptops however the entire network is through a proxy server. When I try to connect my Stiletto it acts like it has no internet connection at all.

Enhanced WiFi Reception Is it just me or is the WiFi reception horrible? I live in a small townhome and I can be in the room directly above where my router is and I lose reception constantly.

Increased battery life this might just be something for a future unit but I know there are some things that can be fixed to help this. (yes I know better wifi reception would take more battery power and thus decrease battery life)

Change Parental code without reset Is this just me? I have looked through every menu and I cannot find a way to change the parental code!

How many times has this been said? Better antennaphones, or a clip for regular headphones. i don't mind an extra wire. I have some Sony (i know i know...) over ear headphones and I am sure it is entirely possible to make something that would clip onto the top of them.

The graphics suck already (they are pretty sick but they are really pixelated alot of times) but tone down the graphics, It is slowing down the menus.

Car Charger and a way to charge the other battery without spending 70 bucks

I apologize if this sounds like alot of bitchin... I actually love my Stiletto. My first Sirius radio was that Sirius One player, the one that was available for about a month. I originally got it because I was working at a summer camp for 2 months and we were in the middle of nowhere, We were lucky to get a radio signal at all... After listening to no commercials and the quality I just never cancelled my subscription. Now I am spoiled with a Stiletto. Before I got it I did my research on here and CNET and decided for it mainly because the majority of my listening I am walking outside or I have a Wifi connection. And I had some gift cards to spend. Alot of the things people talked about when I was researching were things that can be fixed with a firmware (oh excuse me, ZAP) update.

I think that is it for know... I will let you know if I have anything else...

It is actually a pause button, but same net result for sound output.

Ohh this is new...

The pictures on the home menu? Gone! i.e. Sattelite radio (the dog), Internet Radio (Dog with globe), Recording (the clock)... I don't remember the other ones. The text is still there but the pictures have disappeared... I will see what I can reset/break...

Proxy: One of the reasons they use a proxy is to prevent you from streaming.

Reception: I just walked down the street, about 100 feet from my access point without a problem.

My List

1) One button station forward and one button station back. It doesn't even have it on the remote. Trying to change stations while driving is going to make me crash. Maybe have the FWD / REV buttons to do that.

2)
More than 6 hours of record when setting a timer. I'm not sure why there would be a maximum. You should be able to record until you run out of space.

3) Haven’t tried this yet.. But I intend to have it play continuous for my whole home speaker system. If it turns off after 4 hours, I’m going to have to get something else.

I think all my requests should be doable with firmware updates.

As far as I have seen/experienced this is only a problem in the car dock. And only if you don't touch it for 4 hours. I use mine all over my house via WiFi.

I posted in my list for better WiFi reception but as VDChawk pointed out he can go 100 Feet!? here I come BB. I can't go beyond about 30 feet line of sight.

Proxy: I am the student tech admin and I could care less about anyone streaming we have a direct OC-48 line (we have alot of computers and host the districts servers), I also talked to my advisor (the official tech person) and he is going to look into port forwarding on select routers. He is also very impressed by the stiletto.
