I have heard this asked a few times but haven't heard
any discussion. Is there any plans to add support for
XM or Sirus radio? The popularity of these digital
streams seem to be increasing quickly.

I know that I have asked. Right now I am on the fence with my Audio
distribution scheme. If there were support for the XM Stream, it would
push me over the fence and cause me to buy at least one more SqueezeBox
to add to my 2 Slim's.

Please guys, consider supporting the XM Stream.

It looks like at least the free streams are WMA, not encrypted. It'd
take some work, but it's possible (unlike launch.yahoo.com, which is a
personal fav' but encrypts their streams).

I'm giving serious thought to running my own private Shoutcast server so
I can listen to DirecTV music channels when I'm at work. It's designing
the channel changer that's proving to be tricky. I just haven't gotten
around to LIRC yet.
