      XM blows, and will go out of business soon anyway. Get sirius in Street Deck so I can listen to Howard!

        It would be great if Sirius is supported. Especially when the USB hardware is available at MP3car.com for it.

        The sooner, the better I say.

            yes i do agree XM is pretty weak on its music choice. It seems to corporate sirius just plays whatever the hell it wants cursing and all

              XM is the lame. Sirius is much better. I feel after I can already play anything I want via MP3, the music thing is a no brainer. But I would like to have Sirius as well for some of the other stuff mentioned, shows and etc...

                I'm in agreement with the rest of you as far as Sirius vs XM, but for different reasons. NASCAR is moving to Sirius starting next year, and I want to be able to hear a race uninterrupted when driving cross-country.
                It's not a deal-breaker for me, though. It's just a nice thing to have.
                Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                How about the Wiki?

                  I can understand the debate between Satellite radio.

                  BUT in terms of advertised capabilities StreetDeck should be advertised as XM Compatible.. NOT Satellite. Since there are only two choices my asumption was that it was both.... later to find out that it is not.

                    I see this is suggested ALOT in here. Do we know if this is going to be added anytime soon?

                    I purchased the Sirius Connect system to use in SD (to find out it doesnt support it) and dont mind holding onto it if it will be added in the next few months.

                      I think they must be hardocre XM fans. It cant be that hard to write some code to use the sirius interface. It is the one reason I wont buy SD

                        yea maybe you SD guys should reconsider this, but I'd actually rather them spend their time fixing all the bugs and making StreetDeck as stable as possible.

                          I purchased SD for the "Satalite radio".... this was a major disapointment to me.

                          Is there any other way to intergrate it into SD using another app? What about a digmod?

                            If you really want to make SD kick A$$.... add the sirius traffic feature to the GPS as well..... now this would beat any feature added!!

                              I was also disappointed to find SD didn't support Sirius. Mitch seems to make the dll available to whoever needs it. It looks like RR is the only frontend to Support it....oh, and DigitalDash.
