    After upgrading to Parallels 4, Sirius streaming audio begins fine, but after a short bit of time the sound degrades significantly (Worked fine with Parallels 3).
    Ideas?
    Thanks

    Try reinstalling audio driver -- delete it from Start -> Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> Device manager, then reboot and under Device manager right-click the "Sound, Video and game controllers" node and select "Scan for hardware changes".
    Probably you will need to insert the Windows installation CD to install the driver.

    Unfortunately, this only seems to fix things temporarily. I'm getting audio, but it somewhat broken-up as if there were problems decoding. Ideas?

    The codecs are in there. It looks like it's a global audio issue rather than a Sirius specific (BTW - Sirius Internet Radio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sirius_Satellite_Radio#Sirius_Internet_Radio) allows access to content when not in 'view' of a satellite).
    I'm seeing various complaints of choppy or broken audio. This is what I'm experiencing. Is there an Intel audio controller alternative? It's odd how uninstalling and then reinstalling allows good audio at first but eventually it 'breaks' again.
    Thanks

    Try to stop all applications on Mac OS and Windows and listen only there, no alternative, we only emulate Intel AC97
