I'm an XM subscriber and now that the plug-in no longer works I've enabled the Sirius App. Now I discover there's been a problem with lots of users experiencing the "Stream Stopped, you are no longer authorized to listen" kick-out message. I Searched many complaint posts but have found no fix for the App. Only work-around found was to use the 3rd party "(not so) Sirius" plugin but since the recent website change that no longer works either.

Have I missed the solution or do I need to chill & wait for someone to develop one?

I've tried testing, but on my end I can play for 3 or 4 hours with no interruption (I'm in the US, an XM subscriber, with a subscription to the internet streaming option within XM). And I did have to change my name for the internet stream option from my email address (my xmradio login) to something else before I could get the sirius plugin to work. And I'm using squeezeboxServer (not mysb.com) if that matters.

Same exact situation here, and no problems (so far) being logged out.

I'm no network whiz so I don't know why this affects some users but not others. I just want a simple system that streams XM to my HT without constantly needing to be poked, upgraded, re-configured and tweaked.

it appears even the engineers don't know the cause--and it's been a problem for well over a year. Now that former XM-only subs are piling on to the Sirius app I expect the complaints to increase proportionally.

I think I just started getting this in the last month or two - I don't usually listen to Sirius so I've only really noticed it when I accidentally leave it running overnight or after I leave for work - I'll get back and notice that the Sirius stream has just turned itself off...
