Default Can I record from Sirius to MP3?

So here's what I'm trying to accomplish.

I have a Sirius radio service subscription. The source where I listen to it now is a removable unit which is now installed in my car. The main reason I have Sirius is to listen to the Stern show. But...my job just changed, and now I have to take the subway to work, where of course there is no internet signal and cannot listen live. So...what I want to do is record the Stern show while it's on live in the mornings, save the audio somehow, and listen to it on an I-pod or any MP3 player on the train the following day.

My thought is to first get a home kit for the unit and install it in my house, that's easy enough. But how can I get the show recorded and saved as a file format in which I can listen to it at a later time?

Would this work? - run the audio from the sirius unit through my home theater receiver (which will have to happen anyway), get some sort of cable (which type?) that can run from "audio out" from the receiver to "audio in" on my laptop (is there an audio in on an HP laptop?). And if so, is there software that can record the show that will (in essence) now be playing through the laptop that can be saved as an MP3?

Hi there -

We would recommend our XMp3i which has recording capabilities that would allow you to record off of our satellite feed at home and replay on our programs on the subway. Let us know if you have any further questions.

Hope this helps,

Simple. Run an 1/8 in audio plug from your receiver to your laptops microphone in. If you have Roxio or some other audio capture device, you can record it as a .wav or .mp3 file.
