When the introductory Sirius package runs out I'm dropping it. To replace it I was wondering if I could record music from the Linkbox onto an USB device and then play back on the cars stereo system? 

My son-in-law suggested using an old andriod smart phone but the Linkbox doesn't recognize it when it's attached.

It does recognize my Samsung external hard drive and appears to record but I couldn't figure out how to play back the recording.  I hooked the hard drive up to the PC and there's two .dvr files but when I try to play them all I get is a windows 'TV' screen.

Is what I want to do practical?

Yes, that should be workable. I'm not familiar with Linkbox how ever as long as it can record to a USB stick then from there it's probably only a matter of using some audio conversion software to convert the files recorded by the Linkbox into a format that the car audio system can recognize.  This may be as simple as just renaming the files from the .dvr extension to a .mpeg or .mp2 extension.  Difficult to say exactly since I don't know the format Linkbox records it's file to.  The car audio with a USB input should probably support any of the audio codecs used in the satellite music channels be it mpeg2, AAC or what ever.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
