    Is there a way to adjust the settings on the MP3 encoder? The quality on the music channels it distorted.

    I've got multiple IP addresses defined on the machine that's running my HME apps. Galleon works fine. So does the TIVO desktop software.

    However, I can't get my TIVO to recognize the HMESatRadio application. I noticed that when the runhme.bat file runs, I get the following in the console:

    HME SDK 1.4 (TiVo, Inc.)
    LOG: added factory
    MDNS: //

    The IP address listed is for a virtual interface for VPN software that I run. It should be

    Is there a way to specify an IP addresses?

    Is the correct IP address in the config.txt?

    Sorry, its not doing anything magical. It is merely encoding whats playing on your computer to mp3 on the fly and sending it to your Tivo. So, my answer is... mute your computer speakers :)
    Personally, in the past I have used the RunOnStart option to run a small script that adjusted the mixer settings when someone connected.

    I've gotten this to work, but I get lots of drops and skipping on both my TiVos. I don't have this problem when I listen to XM Online on my PC.

    I'm stumped. Here's my setup and things I've tried:
    XP Home
    P4 3Ghz / 1GB RAM
    Broadband 5000+ kbps
    Wired Network 100Mb
    Soundblaster Live

    I've tried changing the Connection Speed and MixerIndex. I've got low CPU usage (<10%) but tried disabling a few background things anyhow. I made sure my sound and java drivers were up to date. No other Network Traffic.

    I don't have any these problems with other MP3 apps (Galleon / / Live365)

    I've got the XM app installed fine, but I find that it crashes consistently at about 30 minutes (I'm using the online streaming option). All I get in the logs is a message saying that the client disconnected. The worst part is that the crash also disables all of the apps under Music, Photos, and More and I have to reboot the Tivo to get them back (or get the XM app working again).

    Any ideas?

    I'm having trouble getting this to work also..I'm new to this stuff and it is probably something simple. when I click on Hme SatRadio in the music, photos, more page, I get a cant run message. It says and error occured while running the apllication. The application closed during a read (0x50006).
    I believe it may have something to do with the java window that loads. When I click on that to look, it takes me to the listen online page of xm. I'm all signed in but I'm thinking it should be loading me right to the xm player launch screen. when i try to do it manually, it says it has closed due to inactivity. I tryed turning off my cookies like it suggest, but that doesnt help..Has anyone seen this problem before?? Hopefully I made some sense in this post..Thanks

    Under the config file, make sure the default ip address is the same as the ip on the pc running the xm rogram.

    Anyone know if this program still works? I am getting a channel list error from runRadioOnline.bat. I modified the config files and it appears to log me in correctly, but then cannot create the channel list.

    I am using "SatRadioAddress="

    If it matters, I have the latest Tivo desktop software installed on my PC and have a new Tivo HD.

    Please Wait. Initializing Channel List
    at com.watty.hmesatradio.SatRadioOnline.initChannelList(
    at com.watty.hmesatradio.SatRadioOnline.<init>(
    at com.watty.hmesatradio.SatRadioOnline.main(
    Press any key to continue . . .

    Pressing any key causes the program to abort.
