If one decides to record SiriusXM shows using a streaming app (whether it be the web app or a mobile app), one runs into the issue of the stream stopping every hour with the message, "You have been logged out due to inactivity." If you press OK the show resumes, but you have lost that few seconds of audio (and much more if you're not able to be around to press it).
There have been "unofficial" apps in the past that have circumvented this problem (i.e. MusicDock for iOS and SiriusXMStreamer for Windows). However, since Sirius keeps changing their API these no longer work for all channels (including Indie, the channel that Art Bell's Dark Matter will be on).
I'm sure that others will be recording the show, but I'd like to be able to do it for myself to have more control (i.e. bitrate, file and ID3 tag naming), and the most convenient way would be recording the audio from one of the streaming apps. Does anyone know of a way of getting around this problem, short of buying a physical XM radio and recording the audio output from that?
