    I'm listening online, and the music channels are working fine.

    It's 5:55AM, and H100 is broadcasting nothing at all.

    Seriously? No one at Sirius is listening at the start of the show? Fucking ridiculous. I got nothing over here.

    The "evaluate stream" works. Its also without a delay.
    Sirius loves to fuck the paying customers.

    Management just hot the report that all the bandwidth they installed for the Howard channels aren't getting even close to getting used. They are transferring that bandwidth to the catholic channel. (Unfortunately ) that channel gets more listeners.

    MusicDock (free) for iPhone/iPad is the only 3rd party app that hasn't been disabled- it's rock solid.

    The SiriusXM stream is 5 minutes behind real time, which has its pros and cons. Stream cuts out just about every day.

    Yesterday on H100 and H101, I noticed that the online player kept repeating over and over again (in like 15 second loops). I finally gave up... and didn't really care

    Dead air, you mean like the many times Howard pauses to think of what he wants to say next during his groggy times or is digging through his notes and everyone waits on him? 30 seconds later and I think the mp3 I'm listening to cut off or stopped off, it's like listening to a college radio station fumfer around. I just like to say fumfer.

    the replay wouldn't play the show beginning on 100 when I tried to rewind. When the west coast feed started everything was fine so I would say the transmit out from the studio was fucking up since they had a hard copy recorded for 101 at 9 est.

    Sometimes people put the simcard in their car and forget to return it to their radio. Its all about the simcards
