Default Sirius Radio Questions

So for X-mas I got Sirius Radio. The unit that i was given [Sanyo] is a POS and I am returning it [it actually doesnt even work anymore] So I want to get a diffrent unit.

Any one have a sugestion. I was looking at the XACT ReGo and the Small "portable" unit they have. Does anyone have experience with these if there any good. Every Cnet review says there terrible but it looks like alot of XM users bashing Siruis stuff so who knows.

In any case, all sugestions welcome. I would like portable but if its no good, then a car/home unit thats reliable is the next best thing. I also have no use for an MP3 player since i have a 60 gig IPOD

I just got my XTR. It is anything but small! It is pretty damn big (the power pod that is) Not sure how it works yet as i am still waiting to hook it up. On their webpage (actually i think it was a review somewhere) it says that it can fit in a jacket pocket or a book bag.... i will be honest, it isnt fitting in any of my jacket pockets.

XM has better hardware and programing.

Stern wont be as interesting without constraints.

I got this unit

the Starmate Replay ST2 for christmas. It seems to be really well made and has caused no problems for me whatsoever. It does get a bit warm though. The reviews of that XACT portable unit made me decide against it as well as the fact that this unit looks a lot more well designed.

If you get one and activate it before 12/31 you can get the $50 rebate from sirius. I got mine from Best Buy for $79 after rebate but I believe you can get it online for $10 less.

It stores up to 30 songs/artists/teams and searches the channels for what is coming up. If any of those in memory are about to be played on one of the channels you get a warning and can flip to that channel.

It also has 44 minutes of memory so you can pause and rewind live radio.

Sirius forum

I have posted a few questions there and got good feedback. You are probably better off hitting that place off.

fwiw i have the sportster replay hooked up to my klipsh ipod system and the sound quality is goot.
