Question about Rio SIRIUS Sportster Replay Receiver (Refurbished)

Open Question

Sirius sportster replay 2 audio

I do not receive any audio on channel 184. I have a signal but the audio is not playing on my car radio. I installed a direct adapter to the radio antenna & still no audio. I can hear the the Sirius radio transmitting the signal to the car radio when the sirius is turned on & tuned to the same channel as the car radio which indicated that the sirius radio is transmitting the signal to the car radio but still no audio. I have another sirius radio & it works & transmits the audio without any problem. Any suggestions. JVY

    I have an XACT XTR8 Replay, and I believe its basically the same model as the old Sportster. I have a lifetime sub since 11/04 and it has worked untill 11/08 which when I called they had an account error. They tried to delete and recreate my account, but it will still not receive any new activation signals now for a week. I've called every day. I too have the same problem, 184 shows up fine but I get no audio. They're trying to tell me my radio is broke, coincidentally when they screw up my account??? I call bull$h!t. I plan on calling XACT then trying to call the Sirius corporate office.

If you bought it within a year, it should be under OEM warranty. If it has been longer than a year, but shorter than two years, and you bought it with Visa, MC, or American Express, you probably qualify for extended warranty protection from your credit card company.

I have a similar issue.
Assuming by '.010' you were referring to the thickness/gauge, what was the length of the wire that broke off and how did you affix the repair piece to the antenna socket?

I do this repair for the ST2's. I can replace the SID chip and give your radio a new ID that you can activate with Sirius. I am on Ebay and my user name is rarey57siriusXM. Look me up I also do LCD and scroll wheel repairs for the Stiletto 10 and 100's. Cost of this repair service is $24.95 and that includes free priority mail shipping back to you on all these different repairs. Thanks

Hello, i have a clarion xmd3, i bought it in 2004 and have a sirrius add on sara radio reciever. im trying to resubscribe for service. i need the radio to display sat radio id#. went to clarion web site...

You can get the # right off the Sirius unit (it's on a sticker on it - SID#).

Also try going between channels 1 and 184 (IE go track/tune down) it may show up then.

If not press and hold the T button for longer than 1 second. Then use the track up/down buttons to scroll through the menu. There should be a screen that will show Sirius or Sat ID or something to that effect. When you see that press the up or down button, or play pause and it should display it.

Let me know if that works.

Sirius starmate 2replay has no sound. how do I go

When you hit the menu button go to FM transmitter and make sure is is turned on, and sellect a frequency
to set it to that is not being used by a radio station, tune you radio to the same frequency. if you are using the audio out on the starmate to plug directly into an aux in on you stereo, there should be a audio level adjustment in the menu as well.
