Do we have Tivo-like (play while recording) audio tuner yet?
More background here:
I'm hoping to get the perspective of original-Sirius listeners.
Yes...Sirius radios have this feature...
SIRIUS Stiletto 2 - SIRIUS Replay™ : pause, rewind and replay up to 60 minutes of live radio
SIRIUS Stiletto - SIRIUS Replay™—Pause, rewind and replay 44 minutes of live radio
SIRIUS Starmate 5 - SIRIUS Replay™: Pause, rewind and replay up to 44 minutes of live radio
SIRIUS Starmate - SIRIUS Replay-Pause, rewind and replay 44 minutes of live radio
SIRIUS Sportster 5 - # SIRIUS Replay™ : pause, rewind and replay up to 60 minutes of live radio
SIRIUS Starmate 4 - SIRIUS Replay-Pause, rewind and replay 44 minutes of live radio
SIRIUS Sportster 4 - Replay Features-Pause, rewind and play 44 minutes of your favorite SIRIUS broadcasts.
As for if I'm sure...I have a sportster replay, and yes....I'm sure.
But I sort of need to press here, because the descriptions I see match the several XM radios which appear to do the same thing.
I'm skeptical about playback of a *recording* (not just live radio). eg, the Pioneer Inno, the XMp3, etc can record audio for later playback (I suspect some Sirius players can do the same thing). However, if I start recording a show (let's say it's a Cubs baseball game), I have to let the entire recording finish (specifically the baseball game to end, which is hard to predict an end time) before I can start playing/listening to the recording.
Are you saying all your referenced players can both record channels (with 50+ hours record time) for later playback and also can start playing back any recording prior to the recording finishing (a la a recorded TV show in Tivo)?
This is very different than simply "time traveling" through live radio. I see lots of players that can do that. Would be really cool if all the aforementioned Sirius players do the above.
