There are freeware software packages that will rip an audio source directly to MP3. You could burn many hours of Sirius onto a CD, depending on the data rate you select. At 128k, I have a 1 gb flash drive that holds several hours of music.James Long said:Your receiver has audio outputs. If you have a computer with a sound card and a CD burner it should be trivial to record the audio to CD.
I forgot about the new Premium online streaming. With 128K it should sound excellent, Sirius' standard bitrate is 32K which is absolutely terrible. I really don't have a use for online streaming or I'd pay the extra $3 for the premium service.kstuart said:But now there is a third Sirius audio format:
