    There are a couple of threads floating around, but I figured it would be in everybody's best interest to start a new one with the instructions directly in the first post. This works perfectly on the Storm, and would probably work on other Blackberrys and smartphones.

    1.) Download Orb. MyCast your digital media with Orb 2.0 remote pc access software Set up an account.

    2.) Download uSirius. uSirius 1.0 Release Candidate 8 | Millard Software

    3.) Install uSirius. Plug in your Sirius account info. Hit “Start” if needed.

    4.) Select “URLs” on the right of uSirius.

    5.) Select your channel that you want to stream from the dropdown list. Leave the Type as “MMS Stream”.

    6.) Copy the URL. Go to Orb on your computer. Select the audio tab. Go to Internet Radio on the left list.

    7.) Click "Add Custom" on top. Paste the MMS link from uSirius into your favorite streams. Add a name (i.e. - Howard 100, Lithium).

    8.) Log your phone on to Orb.com. Go to audio. Select favorite internet radio streams. Listen to Sirius station.

    Now here are the requirements.

    1.) Sirius account (obviously). You need to have the username and pass for online access.

    2.) Windows computer for Orb.

    3.) Computer NEEDS TO BE LEFT ON anytime you want to access Sirius or your files.

    HOPE THIS HELPS! I am busy so typed it up as fast as I can. Feel free to ask questions or add on to this thread.

    I have had VERY good luck so far, excellent quality stream with no buffering.

    XM USERS SEE FIRST POST ON PAGE 2 FOR DETAILS ON STREAMING XM!

    I get an error message: "Unsupported media type: video/x-ms-asx". Does anyone have any clue how to fix this?

    So you don't actually download any software to the phone? Everything is downloaded to the computer and then you access it from your phone simply by opening your browser and going to Orb.com?

    Give me a logical/technical reason why Orb will not install on my PC. Tried 2 different PC's running 2 different verzions of Windows. Won't install on either. Firewall set to allow Orb. I need this to work.

    What stream format, would you choose on the storm?

    I have a good EVDO signal, and checked everything on computer for problems and found none. It doesn't matter whether it's videos, music, or Sirius, it's fine on computer, but audio lags(buffers?) on Storm.

    I've played with the streaming speed settings on the PC and the Storm, but still......
    I'm still having buffering/lag/audio-cutting-in-and-out problems, no matter the media. Nobody knows why? Could those of you having no problems please post your settings?

    what codec do you need for this? i keep getting told im using the wrong codec?
    11-24-08 02:21 PM
  16. rls1400's Avatar
    I dont know what the codec issues could be. Is the codec issue on the PC or on the phone itself?

    I have Orb on my ****ty work computer which is five years old Windows XP, and it actually works great. I would install it on my personal computer but it is a Mac so no dice!

    XM USERS:

    uXM Release Candidate 4 | Millard Software That should work, from the same company.

    Sirius and XM did merge, but their account holder bases are still different. You will need to log in to whoever you joined pre-merger.

    So will there be any usage charges from my home internet provider comcast or verizon? I should have unlimited usage but just want to make sure...If you use your BB for a air card for your laptop i know verizon has an "unlimited" plan but you can only use 5 gb's which is a lot but i thought unlimited is unlimited...btw orb and usirius works great!
