I could not believe it!

I stumbled around for the past 3 months trying to find a
piece of software that would stream XM radio to my Mac Pro
and Macbook Pro.

The XM Widget from Yahoo does not work with OSX. Neither
does XAMP.

Just by pure luck I found this application that works great!

Subscribers can create an online account on the XM homepage
and then sign into this widget.

Great! Just found this and installed it. If only I could hear anything. I have an online account, but keep getting a Bad Logon from the Widget. I'll keep working at it and hope to get it working soon.

Bill,

I hadn't followed up on this post, and I apologize.

I haven't used this widget in weeks.

I didn't have a problem logging in, but it only played loops
of music in that I would hear 5 minutes of music and then
it repeated itself. I think the author of this widget never
finished his pet project.

Thanks for the reply, Ron.

I finally solved the logon issue, but came up with another one. Instead of switching channels, it seems like making any channel change results in additional streams being added to the first one instead of changing channels. Then, there is no way to stop it short of shutting down the computer. Imagine four different songs blaring on top of each other. Awful! Alas, I finally gave up and will just go back to listening through the browser.

Too bad if he seems to have given up the cause. It certainly was a good idea.

Yeah, it seems this widget is rather useless. My apologies
for promoting it before putting it to the test!

Guys,

THIS is what you want!

It works, though it never really got out of BETA stage.
