Pulsar 1.5.3 Restores SIRIUS Streaming

Pulsar IconOver the weekend, SIRIUS Online radio had some major server updates. As a side effect of these updates, our XM and SIRIUS streaming radio application Pulsar was no longer able to receive SIRIUS information. We worked hard on this problem over the weekend, and today we’re happy to announce Pulsar 1.5.3, which restores SIRIUS streaming.

If you’re already using Pulsar, be sure to update (for free) by choosing Check For Update from the Pulsar menu, or downloading right from our site.

If you haven’t used Pulsar before, you can see what you’ve been missing with satellite radio by downloading the Pulsar trial. You’ll need a SIRIUS or XM Online radio account, so if you don’t have one yet, be sure to check out their free trials as well.

    Thanks for the quick action on this… I was in a bit of a panic Saturday nite when I tried to set up Audio Hijack so I can hear tonight’s Met Opera channel after I get off my flight.

    Hey – I purchased Pulsar this morning, after my Snow Leopard upgrade and the lack of internet streaming. Howard 100 was fine all day, and now it’s all choppy. It seems like other stations are working. Anyone else having this issue?

    I’m getting the same thing as Timothy Satryan. It’s telling me could not tune into the channel. Just downloaded Pulsar yesterday and it was working fine. Now today it won’t work. What do I do? Anyone else having this issue?
