Audio::Radio::Sirius - Control a Sirius satellite radio tuner

Sirius satellite radio ( is a US based satellite radio serice. 
While none of the tuners they make have serial or USB connectors, it has been found that 
generation 2.5 tuners (Sportster, Starmate, * Replay, Sirius Connect, and others) have a 
common tuner module. Furthermore this tuner module generally has a serial interface.

Once your tuner is connected to your system and accessible via a serial port like device, you can 
use this module to access it:

  use Audio::Radio::Sirius;
  use Win32::SerialPort; # or Device::SerialPort on Linux

  my $serial = new Win32::SerialPort('com1');
  my $tuner = new Audio::Radio::Sirius;

  $tuner->channel(184); # tune in the preview channel

This alpha release is not feature complete.  Please expect (possibly code breaking) changes.  Any 
such changes will be documented in the CHANGES file.


To install this module, run the following commands:

    perl Build.PL
    ./Build test
    ./Build install
