Is this just not possible?

If not, could someone tell me why?

Keep in mind that listen.pls is 96kbps only.

hifi_na.asx should be 128kbps. It doesn't work for me neither. I don't know why...

the hifi_na.asx link is a mms only link and does not support http. So you to play on SC you need to disable native Windows media playing and have necessary server based WMA decoding installed (already installed on Windows based SC).

Thanks! Disabling native WMA support did the trick. Now I can listen to it in 128kbps quality.

Thanks to bpa and quad, I did get the .pls stream to work.

Could you please tell me HOW to disable native WMA?

See WebUI Settings/Advanced/FileType/Windows Media

At present, some users have reported that disabling "native" WMA seems to have some side effects on Sirius streams.

Thanks again bpa, that did the trick.
