    Sirius 53 Chill Format Change?

    I was searching/Googling for any thoughts on this. I then came across one reedit thread that had 5-6 posts and then got closed after a lull in posting.

    Sirius 53 Chill Format Change?

    It seems as though they don't play much of the ambient tracks like they did prior to 2012? or so. Instead, a majority of the tracks are now about as high energy as say, BPM. When did they start doing this? I'm currently listening to Slacker non-vocal Chill to get my fix of relaxing, ambient...

    Is the app crashing a lot for anyone else?

    Well, nothing seems to be working on the phone I've had for over a year now(T-Mobile, Galaxy Exhibit II). I'm pretty much open to any phone, new or slightly older(1-2 years old I could probably find at a pawn shop or refurbished from T-Mobile themselves) that can play the app without...

    Is the app crashing a lot for anyone else?

    I rolled back the driver as well to see if that would make a difference and while it played a little while longer, still no dice. Some people say switch over to Pandora, but that too has been plagued by the same problem. I'm going to tinker with my phone and see if there's some sort of "program...

    Is the app crashing a lot for anyone else?

    So I upgraded to the $4 package and the thing still shuts down automatically on me after about 20-30 minutes. My Sirius app on the other hand still stays on for however long I let it. Stumped...

    The Michael Jackson Channel On Sxm

    Guess it ended its run when it was supposed to and now it's back to good ole Groove. :D

    Is the app crashing a lot for anyone else?

    If Boombox still existed, that's probably where they would play a lot of trap and dubstep as well. Six years since its demise and TPTB are firmly sticking to their guns. I don't even think DJ Icey is part of anything there any more. But I'll see how the setups work.

    Is the app crashing a lot for anyone else?

    The dubstep, trap, and house stations keep me rolling on the 7 hour trip. Electric Area and BPM don't really do it for me. It's sort of like they get "tranced out" on those dials.

    Is the app crashing a lot for anyone else?

    That could be an option to look into as well. I figure fiddle around with the "run program from..." options to get it to run from the external SD and the cache could work very well for me. I typically use my phone for music when I'm trucking between town and this dairy about 200 miles away out...

    Is the app crashing a lot for anyone else?

    Haven't done and uninstall/install yet, so I'll try that. Another thing I'm wondering about is if it's dependent on connections. Where I live and drive through right now, the 4G signal tends to vary in certain regions. Haven't done an extensive listening through WiFi only, so I'll see about...

    Is the app crashing a lot for anyone else?

    I've been having the automatic shutdown issue with my Galaxy II Exhibit ever since I got the app. It'll play fine for about 1-2 hours, then make some skipping noises, then shut down all by itself without any real warning. I'm using the free version with ads, but with this sort of thing happening...

    How long do we have to continue to endure E-Street Radio?

    I guess we're preaching to the choir on that one. I Google Boombox for news and all I get is archived info from a several months or more ago. It's like people stopped giving two $H#ts about it.:mad:

    Boombox

    Well, that Slacker substitute known as "Breaks/Drum'n'bass" seems to be sub-par due to them mixing some Area-material in with the tracks we were used to on Boombox.

    Which Scenerio would you like to see happen?

    This entire section of the forum doesn't seem to see alot of users. Are more people really that enslaved to basic pop?

    Boombox

    They've got a breakbeat station on Slacker, but then they also tend to sneak one too many "Raver" hits to break the flow. I want my electro-rock, mashups, and general breakbeats back!!!!!:mad: Until then, it's endless digging through the mountains of crap that's it buried under on Slacker...
