    So are the DVR's going to be able to be recorded? Is there a schedule listed anywhere that would show what songs are going to play and when it is going to be played?

    I have recorded and played back a song or two on my 921 and it works fine.

    No program guide for playlists yet that I am aware of. Here is a link of what is currently playing on each Sirius Stream:

    And if you want to search for a song and see what Stream it played on:

    E* 7 is a rockin satellite tonite man. This is REALLY good stuff. Nice rich sound. Listening to Smooth Jazz 71. Makes me realize how bad FM radio is nowadays.

    This is so funny that everyone is listening to music on their TV, the DJs on Hits 1, just said that their audience has just increased by 6 million more with the addition to Dish Network

    Listening to the big 80's channel 6008. The sound is great. Going to turn on the hair band channel later. I can see me not getting much sleep tonight.

    I thought Dish Network had around 10 million subscribers, 20 million viewers is what they are advertising on their brochures.

    Anyone else really like the added touch of the DJs? It just adds a little personality, it's like having your own personal DJ performing for your party. This is first-class all the way, I am impressed!

    I agree, these Sirius channels are going to be required for any party I have from now on. I can't wait to have these great sounding channels blasting on my patio this summer!

    They have about 6 million subs to 120 and up, so that's why they said 6 million

    You are right but only 6 million have AT120 and above. Bet that will change soon, Sirius makes AT120 (AT180?) well worth the money.

    I love how the DJ's set their volume lower than the music. Gives it sexy appeal. :D

    Couldn't agree more, they don't try to overpower the music, they are just there to give it a little flavor. I can't tell you how much I love what I have seen from Sirius so far, the whole thing is fantastic. I haven't even watched anything on tv tonight, I have been glued to this music!

    My preference:
    Blow D* out of the water by moving CDs to AT60 - 74 video plus 32 CD for $29.99 with locals. D* is running an introductory offer now for $29.99, but that is a limited time thing. E* adding 32 CDs to AT60 would also be an answer for the level of "garbage channels" in AT60 (the PIs and Shopping). D* counts their Music Choice. E* could be at 106 channels (plus locals) for $29.99 easily.

    Leave SIRIUS at AT120 as the carrot (along with FSN) for moving to AT120 (with many more than 135 channels ... and if D* can count their music channels then E* can count all 196 'channels' :D ).

    And leave the oddball mono channels in AT180 ... the 251 channel package and AlmostEP ... the 283 channel package!

    Yeah, I like the idea that E* has Sirius. :grin:

    That would be interesting - and confusing!

    Average two person household? :D

    Watched "28 Days After" on HBO here. Freaky, but good movie. Then immediately went to the music. :grin:

    811 subs: How's the 811 handling the music channels? I'm thinking of getting one for HBO-HD and TNT-HD.

    I hope that some of you new Dish Sirius folk will pull the trigger on a sub for your car(s). I've had Sirius in my 3 cars for over a year, I would't drive a mile w/o it! Sirus imo has superiour sound quality and content compaired to Brand X.

    I've watched my favorite shows tonight, but when I flipped back to my genre's Sirius channel tonight they were ALWAYS playing a song I recognized and liked. OK, I don't expect that to be always true - but on the CD channel I'd have to wait a song or two for something recognizable.

    I believe it really helps that Sirius has DJs and an audience. Muzak formulates their audio feeds for a demographic ... that is their specialty, designed to make people who fit that demographic "feel at home" when they are in a retailer's store or other Musak location. Not really designed to entertain and hold the audience - but just to be background.

    Sirius Music is cool. :grin:

    As some have mentioned, on the Dishplayer, the titles have a few characters cut off the beginning of each line. Sounds fine though. The dishplayer doesn't support PVR functions on it though (no pause, rewind, record, etc).

    For recording, take the digital output from the receiver into a toslink input on a sound card. I got a Hoontech daughtercard for my soundblaster a few years ago. I remember having a little difficulty with sampling rates when recording, but I think I sorted it out. That was a dish 7100 a few years back.
