    Ditto. I have a Crane FM transmitter connected to one pair of audio out (rca jacks) one the 722 and transmit the music to any and all FM receivers in the house. Do the same for internet music stations.

    Hey, that's a great idea. I could eliminate the Dish 811 in the garage which I primarily use for music. Need to check the Crane site. Thanks for the idea.:)

    No, I missed the Rite of Spring riots. Happened about 25 years before I was born.
    I do like Rite of Spring and wouldn't riot over it.:grin:
    Sirius is important to me.

    I like music, whether I had Dish, DirecTV, or Time Warner, the music channels offered were always important to me. It wasn't a huge factor, but it was a factor none the less, two years ago when I started thinking about dropping DirecTV and going back to TW, the music channels came into play. I already had three XM subscriptions, by DirecTV removing Music Choice in favor of XM, that took away some of my listening choices.

    I love having 181 channels of commercial free music between XM, Sirius and Music Choice. While I didn't like Muzak, I listened at to it a lot when I had Dish, until I got my first XM subscription back in 2993.

    I use an old VCR's tuner to run satellite audio to my stereo (rather than run a TV when I want to hear the audio channels).

    I love 60's oldies, however the best channel for them (iirc it's ch 933) is only availabe in the Top-250 and it's mono (so are many of the oldies). I get to hear this channel in a local restarunt that has MUZAK service.

    Sirius 6 is OK, but I could do without the DJ's (with the exception of Cousin Brucie). Jukebox Gold is OK but it's "date range" is too wide for my taste (keep it '63-'73 please).

    6075, Siriusly Sinatra is on full time on my 722 when I'm not actively watching a program.

    I love it, along with some of the audio channels in the 900 range.

    Love 'em!

    Especially great for when we're entertaining guests. Some of the variety (70's, 80's, etc.) channels are a great melange of tunes for wide audiences.

    We don't use the Sirius channels, but love the 950-981 music channels, nice variety.

    I listen to the Sirius channels quite often. However the other channels (especially the extra 30 or so used to make the AT250) are useless to me.

    I listen tp SIRIUS 6014, Classic Vinyl all the time. When I'm outside I pipe it to my outdoor Polk Atrium's. I've gotten more compliments and thanks from atleast 4 different neighbors this summer that they love my music and really enjoy listening to it whenever they are outside.

    If you live in Nashville and like Alternative Rock there is no other choice but these stations. I don't drive enough to get Sirius in the car, 5 minutes to work and 5 minutes home. Actually my very favorite is Top Alternative on AOL. Now if that were avalible in my car, I'd buy it.
