I have had similar steaming issues with XMRadio. If I am at home and have a
VPN tunnel open to campus my XM steam is poor and choppy on a regular basis.
I need to open the stream before my VPN to get high quality. Different DNS,
the tunnel DNS does not reflect the same path to the stream. Akamai instead

Just as an FYI, I did determine (hint from earlier thread) that I take "the
long route" when I am connected to my corporate SLL VPN (which forces DNS
resolution priority to my corporate DNS servers), but when I disconnect, I
take the short route (and use OpenDNS servers for DNS resolution)...
