    Making Sirius work with RR

    I'm starting to purchase some hardware and I figure I'd start with Sirius since I already have a subscription.
    All of the searching I have done has led me to believe that I need to get the Sirius SC-C1 tuner and Mitch's SC-C1 USB Interface to make this work, however all of these posts are old. Is this still what I need? Are there any other options to make this work?

    I have been using the SC-C1 & Mitch's unit for about a year. As far as I know this is the only solution. It works flawlessly, also you can buy the sc-c1 & just transfer your existing subscription.

    That's what I thought, I was just hoping there was a solution that wasn't going to cost me $120. I'm grateful for Mitch's work but his piece of hardware costs more than the SC-C1 ($59.99CAD vs $60USD + shipping).

    Yeah, I was in the same boat as you, but, if you want an integrated system it's going to cost you. I bought a refurbed sc-c1 off ebay for $30 shipped with a 1 year warranty.

    Unfortunately even the previous option, the ALP-1 was over $100 with the Sirius turner. At least we have someone (Mitch) who makes the satellite interfaces. One option is certainly better than no option.

    Agreed. I'm ordering today, I just thought I'd make sure that was still the most current option. I'd rather pay $120 for Sirius than pay however much for an HD radio receiver and use the crappy FM modulated Sirius box I have now.

    I don't know of anything else. Mitch hangs around here since he works on the code for RR. He'll probably pop in here before long.

    Ok, then I'll throw this in here just incase.
    I was looking around his site and saw the SC-H1 and according to your post (Machinehead) from "Siruis, what tuner/product do I need?" As long as I have the antenna, which I do from my old tuner, I could just use this correct?
