I've got my Sirius working GREAT via Orb on my Blackberry 8130 (FYI, the links at the beginning of this post link to an old version of uSirius. Do a google search for uSirius and install the latest version)

Question: For whatever reason, I can't play MP3s on my machine via Orb. It just says "An error has occurred attempting to play media."

Any ideas? I'd LOVE to get this working!

1. Download/install Orb to your desktop computer.

2. Download/install uSirius to your desktop

3. Configure both to normal settings

4. In uSirius, copy the supplied channel URL (click the URL button then select the channel you want, then copy to clipboard).

5. On your desktop, go to Orb, then go to the "Audio page" and make sure you are in the internet radio area.

6. Paste the URL and channel name you copied from uSirius into "Add Custom" under the "my Favorate internet radio." Then orb will know where to look for the sirius feed.

Note: You need to repete this step for every sirius channel you want.

7. On your blackberry browser go to mycast.orb.com
Log in and go to favorate internet radio links and click the feed/channel you want to listen to. Remember, uSirius needs to be running on your desktop.

8. hope this helps

YOu can't stream Sirius or XM, but you can do other internet streams. I've been able to get my webcam to work with my 8130, but still working on getting my MP3s to work. grrrr!

I'm pretty certain I don't have VCAST with my Verizon plan. Does that mean that Verizon will charge me while I'm streaming whatever from Orb?

VCast has nothing to do with Orb, and nothing to do w/Blackberries...nothing you do on your Pearl, streaming or otherwise, will be affected by or result in any VCast charges.

You have a data plan that allows up to 5GB of data a month, whatever data you want, whether it's email or Orb content, etc.

Have you set up a custom station yet? I want to stream a local public radio station and haven't figured it out yet. I presume Orb will transcode to a stream that my BB can handle, but it wasn't working the first time I tried it...

Default Unsupported media type: application/sdp

I have a 8100 (cingular v4.2.0.73) and cant get streaming working via ORB. No matter what I try I get the "Unsupported media type: application/sdp" error on my bb. I have the ".3gp" in my ORB settings. Any ideas?

Default Orb and Hulu?

Has anybody tried streaming Hulu.com through Orb on their phones? I was curious whether this worked.

Thumbs up It Works!!

Very easy and it works pretty well.
There is some drop out but, in a pinch, its pretty cool!

Just got my 8130 today and I'm already streaming Sirius on it!!

Thanks OP!

Default Sirius via Orb - Instructions for Verizon Pearl 8130

This is what worked for me today (June 15, 2008). I don't know if this is a must, but first, download the handheld software Ver. 4.3.0.97. It IS available on the Verizon website and is linked from RIM BlackBerry - PDA Software Downloads - Support & Services at BlackBerry.com or search the site, as it may change. The file is 95 Mb and you may lose a few settings as the program does a back-up, update, and then restoration. Download go to MyCast your digital media with Orb 2.0 remote pc access software and download, find uSirius and download. When you later visit your Orb account on the computer, add the Sirius stream station addresses that you copy from the uSirius program. Then, login to mycast.orb.com on your Phone. The .3gp stream setting works for me. Good sound and stream quality . I'm done!

I would think that it would work on the 8830. The 8100 I cannot say as I have no access to an 8100, and we don't have GSM in Fargo so I can't test if I had one. I will try and test the 8830 this week and get back to you. I will tell all of you that this setup is really inconsistent it seems like it works sometimes, and sometimes does not so you have to keep at it.

I know this is the the Pearl forum but seems this should now work on the curves with the 4.5 os too, right?

Might be worth a shot finally!
