Satellite Radio Technology

Sun, 06 Feb 2005 13:43:07 -0800

Haven't gotten clear answers yet from the NG on a
couple of very fundamental questions re satellite radio technology
(Sirius or XM) so I'll venture to ask them here:

1) If I purchase a subscription to one of these, does that mean _one_
activated receiver per subscription? (Or can I be using one receiver
say on the freeway and my family be using a couple of others at
different locations in the house, on one basic monthly subscription.)

2) Same question, but if I have one subscription and one activated
receiver, can I pull multiple stations (or channels?) out of that
receiver (using multiple "tuners" or "decoders" or whatever they're
called) and feed these different audio signals into different rooms or
headphones or audio channels?

Thanks for any info, or pointers to neutral and reliable sources of info
(which doesn't necessarily seem to include the Sirius or XM web pages).
