    Internet explorer channel? Never heard of it.
    You might want to look at wiibrew and see if they have anything alternative for homebrew, but internet channel uses opera.

    As previously stated. Don't know, but if there were ever to be an alternative browser, wiibrew would be the place to look for it.

    The default internet channel uses Opera based browser, fast may be it is, not compatible with lots of website.

    Never heard of any Internet Explorer based channel, but i have heard people customize Ubuntu (or other Linux) to work on Wii, which I guess come with Firefox~~

    Never try before, just a thought.

    Often, the unsupported message merely reflects that the Web admin just did not specifically test Opera and it might be that the site will work okay using Opera.

    In the full Opera browser there are some known fixes. For example adding some text to a Google page URL is a fix for Google sites (instead of something.google.com one enters something.google.com/?&browserokay=true. One can also go to Edit Site Preferences-Network-Browser Identification and play around with those settings until the Sirius site can be accessed without that message.

    I don't use the Wii Opera browser so I don't know if those settings are available in the Wii version, but if they are I hope this helps.

    Hmmm, been looking around and it doesn't look like anyone has accessed Sirius using the Wii Opera browser, but also no one mentioned any of the workarounds that I described in my previous post.

    XMTuner is reported to support the Wii. XMTuner acts as a proxy between Sirius Web radio pages and a number of devices. You might check that out on XMTuner :: Sirius|XM Satelite Radio on your media player. Good luck.
