    I agree. It is terrible. It seemed to only allow going back an hour unlike the regular one which has a range of about 5 hours when I tried it.

    I did get it it go back to the old one though I'm not sure exactly how I did it. Try this link maybe: https://www.siriusxm.com/player/

    It's almost like SIRIUS-XM wants you to unsubscribe . . . .

    Which I did because (1) HSS sucks ass and (2) the hardware licensed and approved by SIRIUS-XM sucks even bigger ass.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I will not update the Sirius app on my phone, ever. I have my iPhone set to manual updates. I use the 5 hour buffer all the time when I listen to MadDog. His show starts at 3pm and I like to start listening around 6pm when I go out to exercise. The skip forward feature was never that great. Many times when it would skip to the live show on the channel. I used it to bypass commercials. There is often an imposed limit on FF and reverse. I understand Sirius trying to prevent listeners from FF through commercials. They don't care once the show is archived but they hate to lose that revenue when you are picking up the show 30 minutes and your beating them out of money.

    The old player is gonzo. I can't believe they rolled this buggy POS new player out so fast. They also rolled out a new smartphone app that sucks more then the old one. I didn't think that was even possible. WTF is wrong with this company.

    I'm about 2 hours back on Opie's channel and I can drag the slider past commercials no problem. I used to use the "advance" button but it seems that what's being broadcast as audio v. what's on the "PDT" isn't always sync'd. But it's always been that way.

    Is it perhaps performing differently for H100/101?

    Hate the new player. Very cumbersome to work with. Also, haven't been able to get the player to pop out as a stand alone player for a few weeks now. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    You used to be able to go back a running 5 hours with the scrub bar. Now it's only to the beginning of the current program. The fuckers also re-ordered all my favorites. The new SP app is even worse then the old one which I didn't think was possible. Fucking assholes.
