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?

SOURCE: My starmate replay is also stuck on the sirius display

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

I have a boss 400w riot 2-4 channels,how do i connect the high level wires? Because stereo doesn't have rca's

to use the high level leads, you have to isolate the wires going to each speaker (if using 4 channel mode) or isolate the wires going just to the rear if you are using 2 channel mode. you have to strip a small piece of the insulation off each speaker wire, and run it into the amps high level input harness. if you dont have the high level input harness, you can get a 2 channel high level to rca adapter for around $20. basically, you are tapping into the signal to the stock speakers to feed music to the amp. make sure you get all your positives and negatives correct. brighter wires are usually positive; however you may be faced with sa speaker which uses a grey wire, and another grey wire- the second with a black line. you will have to, again, turn to internet research to determine which is positive and negative, if the colors are not obvious.

Car radio not turning off when the car is turn off

This has to do with the way the radio is wired. It's best to go into a motor-mechanics or car-audio shop to have them wire it correctly

Fm works, am does not

Check the antenna connection. A poor connection will often be good enough for FM but make AM reception so bad the the radios auto-gain circuits will mute the output unlike old AMs that would just produce loud static in poor signal conditions.

Can't switch to the auxiliary

try useing it.. plug your aux cord into whatever your using (mp3 player) as maybe your radio won't switch to aux until it senses that there is audio being played through the input aux cord?
