    The people at geekstoolbox are working on a project to get Sirius working on Blackberry's. The problem is that Blackberry (4.3/4.5) uses the RTSP format for streaming and unfortunately, the alpha test doesn't work with it. The media player will start to buffer and when it goes to load the data, it can't read the format as it's coming through with a Microsoft codec. MMS is not supported by the browser either. MMS is the streaming format, not picture/videomail. I will provide more info as it become available.

    I'm a new Curve owner and I have loaded the Orb program with uSirius to stream Howard. Orb seems to work, as I can access my desktop and files, but
    I am among the many who is getting the message that "the media being played is of an unsupported format". I have read through several blogs that state that the stream type needs to be the 3GP-AAC/RTSP or 3GP-AMR/RTSP option, but I have tried all of the combinations that I can think of. Also, I am unclear if I need to change the stream option on the desktop.
    Could someone who has been successful at making this work please post their settings for their computer and their BB for us to copy?
    Many thanks!

    Anyone else have the issue that when they navigate away from the media player while streaming it pauses the stream until you come back?

    This is very annoying. I cannot even holster the BB, it pauses the streaming.

    I wanted to offer a workaround for the issue that I posted back in August. I was able to get the Orb/uSirius configuration to work when I downloaded Opera as the browser to navigate to Orb. Now it streams Howard and the rest which is awesome. The only issue I experience is that the stream tends to stop and stutter a bit. Listenable, but not optimal.
    I hope this helps others, and if anyone has a solution to the inconsistent streaming, please let me know.

    Just a question, and maybe there is an easy fix for this.
    When i listen to Sirius through Orb on my 8330, I somteims get "the media being played is of an unsupported format"
    I click back, refresh, etc... and it still says that. After about 5 or so tries, it finally works.
    Anyone know if there is anything that can be done?

    Back again. My latest battle with the Orb/uSirius/Curve configuration started a couple of days ago. When I launch a Sirius channel on my handset it starts the media player, it shows data transfer happening, but nothing plays. The time counter remains at 0:00, the track ball does not work, even the back key is disabled. I have to hit the end key to exit the internet session. I've uninstalled and reinstalled all components and the media player on the 8830 works with other media, so I'm stumped.
    Does anyone have suggestions?
    What format settings for Orb are generating the best results for you all?
