The only thing you can do is take the whole receiver with you. <br><br>
there's just something crummy about watching a game on tivo many days after it's over, though.<br><br>I know what you mean. For some reason I get a little white noise on my Fox affiliate from Boston, but the Fox affiliate from Providence comes in crystal clear (Did I mention Comcast sucks). Last week's Pats game was on Fox. But there was a 5-7 second delay on the Providence channel. It bothered me so much knowing I was watching what happened 5 seconds later I watched with the white noise.<br><br>
i sort of knew it was there, but we don't have the main television hooked up to any speakers and the speaker on it are not that great. so, i haven't checked out the XM yet. <br><br>my new car stereo is prewired for sirius, so i'd hate to fall in love with XM. <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
i am not subscribing to sirius. it's just ready in case i ever change my mind.<br><br>i just don't spend more than 20 minutes at a time in my car and that's about 2 days a week. you may recall that i drove 4,000 miles/year each of the last 2 years? i did buy a new car stereo (cheap -- open box) last week so that i can plug my iPod in via the auxiliary port on the front so i could listen to my podcasts i download, but i have too many podcasts and not enough driving time (the only time i can really listen to them).<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05

I quit the 'iPod in the car' scene ever since I signed up for XM - my wife has it now, and uses it at work too. Personally, I can't get into the podcasts- seems like they require too much concentration, and the only time I have to listen would be the car or working in front of my computer at home - neither of which I need to be distracted from...<br><br><br><br> <-- octagonal signature<br>
