A number of channels not showing artist/track data

Sat Apr 23, 2016 7:26 am

I have noticed recently, although it may have been going on for a while, certain satellite channels:

17, 25, 40, 49, 58, 61, 68, 73 and a number of stations above this but I care less about the talk radio stations.

Is this a question of mapping to other locations in order to get the information? Thanks.

SiriusXM has probably moved the channel numbers around. They constantly make updates.

The app queries SXM now playing by grabbing the url https://www.siriusxm.com/metadata/pdt/e ... 3-22:07:33. The timestamp gets updated every 10 seconds. Looking at the xml there is no metadata for those channels so they have been eliminated or have moved. Will have to track that down.

Thanks for checking into this. If I understand what you are saying - they haven't been eliminated, at least not all of them. I still listen to Spa - it plays fine.

I wonder is Spa is also playing on a second channel and that is where the metadata lives. I'll have to dissect that xml more closely.
