Thanks, I never really push the XM button so I'd have never known :)
I have been getting a barrage of emails lately though, same ole same ole, cheap for 5 months(if you give them your CC#) and then agree to regular automatic payments at their regular rates, unless you call that 800 number than no one answers or they put you on hold for 30 minutes + only to disconnect you :x Nope, never going through that again!
I only once tried one of those trials and the only reason was it was free for 3?? months just by calling, no CC required. They made the mistake though of suggesting I call the 800 number after my free trial to cancel but again without a CC I wasn't too worried. Sure enough when my free period was almost up I tried calling to tell them to cancel. I spend the better part of a morning trying to get someone at that 800 number but either gave up after 30 minutes on hold, got disconnected after 25 minutes or got a hold of someone who transferred me to another department where I also got disconnected :x I did get a few warning letters within the next few days saying my trial would expire and I'd be billed the normal rate but again without my CC and not signing any contract I wasn't too worried. Sure enough at the end of my free trial period my XM stopped working and no more warning letters, NEVER again! But I still do get frequent emails and letters tempting me with those cheap 5 or so months.
Truthfully I'd probably pay $5-$8 for a minimum number of channels(basically all I listened to where channels 5-10(50s-00s music) and a few of the album rock channels, the vast vast majority of channels I could care less about, but like cable/pay TV, ala carte isn't an option :(

Tried it today and shut it off after a few minutes. Now I remember the other reason why I like the USB. XM = 32 to 64 Kbps, super compressed :x

Is that why some channels seem so shrill? I've often wondered why. Are you just guessing or is it truly just 32-64 Kbps? If so thats really awful IMO. I never use less than 128Kbps for my CD rips and oftentimes better.

Stuff like this. Don't need or want anything from a company with such a scummy business model. Free or otherwise. Their mails go straight to the shredder unopened.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

some songs come out OK but the majority just don't sound right. Its why I wouldn't pay more than a $1 or $2 a month for XM.

I'd rather they cut the number of channels and up the bitrate on each.
