    Has anyone tried getting the streaming XM radio feed from the internet on their 650?

    The Shoutcast streams through PocketTunes seem to work rather well.

    Unfortunately, the XM stream is Windows Media only. We will need something that can decode that before we can access it on our Palm Treos. The 700w can handle it.

    Yeah, this is a shame b/c MiniXM.com provides an awesome solution:

    Too bad we can't use TCPMP for this...

    I must live in a bad part of Michigan because I can't use ShoutCast at all through Pocket Tunes. It has to keep buffering and it's really annoying.

    Google for "XM Radio Slim plug-in". Someone posted a plug-in for the slimserver to log-in to XM Online. Next, use the slimserver to transcode to mp3. Finally, log in to your slimserver. It is a real pain, but it does work with my Soundbridge--I guess it would work with the 650.

    Cheers

    Maybe you're trying to stream feeds that have to high of a bit rate.
    Try listening to streams that are 96k or less.

    What's the reasoning behind no support for the windows media format?
    I see that Sirius streams in windoze format as well.

    It is not good either. Windows devices are so far ahead in this arena...

    I live in the Lansing area. I have tried all bit rates and they all suck!

    It works excellently here in Columbus, Ohio.
    I also go to South Haven Michigan a lot, and it doesn't work as well, but is still v ery acceptable. Maybe I'm getting a good signal bouncing off of lake Mich?
