Question about setting up Sirius in home

I'm "technically challenged" and am trying to set up sirius radio in my home. My account allows for my car (love it!) and streaming. Got a sirius in home kit and a speakers docking box. Called sirius to set up inhome account. I set the receiver in the dock, fired it up, got the channels to show up. Had to adjust antenna in south window. Got 100% reception for satelite.
All this, and no sound!
First of all, why south facing window? Am I looking for more sunlight, or to connect to a satelite? Second, why no sound if I have full satelite connection? I don't have a teenager around to help me. Any suggestions? Thanks.

George Harrison would be 80 today!

My god, time flies.

The crazies are everywhere

Had an Electrolux guy come over for a servicing. I mentioned my pending trip to Canada. He said, well don't shoot at any balloons. Ha ha. That it's ridiculous to say they are from China, when China can spy on us in more sophisticated ways. Because actually, "they" are promoting a UFO frenzy, keeping us scared, so "they" can come along and save us all, thereby attaining world domination. I asked who "they" are. "Biden, Obama, Hillary Clinton, George W. Oh, and the Pope." Okaaaaaaay. Yipes.

I got 3 hearts!

Thank you so much!!

Okay, here's a dumb question about flying on partner airlines

I'm flying to Vancouver on Sunday. It's an American Airlines flight number, but "operated by Skywest as American Eagle". So where do I check in at airport, American Airlines or Skywest?

Two more hearts!

I love this website.

Hey! Somebody got me a heart!!

Thanks so much to my gifter!

Ok, who else is loving "Will Trent"?

I've read most of the books which are great. I didn't picture him like the actor, but the show is really good.

Good news for crime drama lovers

I hear there's a new season of Vera coming. Yea!
Also new episodes of Murdoch Mysteries in February. And, according to the Graham Norton show, James Norton is returning in Happy Valley.

We are moving mom to a care facility

On Thursday. Been bedridden since June after getting covid. We've had full time care giving in the home at $12,000/ month.
She wants to get out of bed, and who can blame her. But caregiver and I can't manage it. A family friend owns a facility and a room came up. At only $6000/month, we grabbed it. Told caregiver yesterday which broke my heart; she's almost family at this point.
Mom doesn't know yet, and that's another challenge.
Thank goodness I recorded It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World yesterday on our local pbs station. It's giving me some comic relief between all the crying.
