    Linux and Sirius

    Hi everyone. I am currently putting together a system and would love to use linux and nGhost but can't seem to find a way to use my Sirius SC-C1 and MJS converter. If anyone has got this to work or could help me out in this that would be great. Otherwise I have to go with Windows

    Did you ever figure this out?

    I guess since this post is so old, no one is using MJS + Sirius SC-C1 + Linux?

    Couldn't really tell you. I didn't end up figuring it out, but maybe you can take a look at Linux ICE development on that front. I am guessing that you would probably need to make your own drivers for it and rework mj's software. I am sure it can be done but you would have to have a good deal of knowledge in Linux to do this.

    A driver and accompanying software can be done if hardware were to find a way to the right person. There are a couple of Linux guys who are capable of writing drivers (malcom2073 and kshots come to mind). If you are serious about serious support, they may be willing. Mind you that they are both involved in a bazillion other side-projects, so the answer just may be understandable "no".

    Alternatively, HD radio support is decent (and improving), and internet radio (which IMHO is a better option that sat radio), is also doable.

    While I appreciate you calling my name, I gotta count myself out on that one, I pay enough for radio receivers, I refuse to pay for a radio subscription to get music without commercials when I already paid for a music collection to do just that :P

    Has anyone tried using Wine with a windows Sat radio program? I know it's a hack, but it would work right?

    Not yet but I can try that. Any suggested good windows programs that might look good running on linuxICE?

    Looks like the mjs-sc-c1 is just an ftdi controllable serial port. If there is open source software available for communicating with it in windows, a number of people could convert it to run on mac/linux fairly easily.

    Its on my to do list for OM.....so if something open hasn't been done i'll make sure to tell you when its coded up and you can port it to c++.

    a c# assembly would be just as good. I can turn that into a dbus-enabled daemon pretty easily.

    Sirius driver for SC-C1 in Linux

    I got the SC-C1 working to a certain extent under Linux by porting an Perl driver to Python. There were some bugs that I encountered that still exist, but this might give you a good start.

    I originally was planning on doing a lot of work for my own custom interface and everything, but got sidetracked with some other work.

    Anyway, project is at http://code.google.com/p/oyombu/, and the only real code in the tree is the Sirius driver.
