    Just to clarify: I'm pretty sure he meant "compilation" rather than ****... =)

    I don't think it's a company-wide restriction. They may have put a firewall on your computer restricting it locally, which would explain the lack of access at home. Ask the IT guys if they changed anything so you can narrow down the problem.

    .

    Disable IE protected mode:

    Open Internet Explorer, click on "Tools", Internet Options-Security tab-, then click on the "Internet" icon (the World globe), then UNCHECK the "Enable Protected Mode" box, then click on "apply", then OK.

    Then try to get onto Sirius.

    Also,

    Your firewall on the laptop me be blocking Sirius.

    Try disabling the firewall and see if you can get on.

    Can you ask your company's IT people if they've changed anything on your laptop?

Sounds like your company has set up a router control access rule for the IP address of the Sirius Radio Server connection. Unfortunately, there is no way around this blocking. Your company has done this to control the network traffic and to block unnecessary intranet/Internet incoming and outgoing traffic. You do not realize how much bandwidth listening to streaming music or watching streaming video consumes from usable network bandwidth. If your company pays a flat fee for Internet access each month with no traffic limit, they are just being protective of the network and potential bottlenecking of datagram packets. If your company has a limit of say 4TB of transmission packets per month and anything over this amount begins costing them oodles of money, the IT department is just trying to keep costs down. If the laptop you are using belongs to your company and is NOT your personal laptop, then more than likely the IT department HAS installed new firewall rules that are in place to protect the integrity and security of the system data. I know that you want to listen to your own music selections while at work, but network and data security trumps your ability to listen to what you want to. My suggestion, bring in some **** CD's with your favorite music and use your own CD player at your desk, then no one can restrict your music listening. If the laptop is owned by YOU, and you are using it for business use with consent of the organization, you are STILL restricted to NAC settings governed by your corporate IT/Security group. I know this is not what you really wanted to hear, but it is what it is. Cheers, Keith

How do I deactivate my Model SL 10? I'm giving it away, but don't want my account being used.


Give sirius a call. You'll need the account password to deactivate the radio. If it's lifetime activation, then just let it stay active. The new owner will not be able to access your account, or view any information about it.

I've had my stiletto for several years and not had a problem. The screen is now blank and won't work in any of my docking stations.


I am having the same problem. Sirius must've sent out a bug cause many stiletto users are coming forth. Mine stopped working about 1 month ago as of today March 26. Sirius Representative told me today that they are being discontinued.

Can't get XM channels


Goto sirius.com. You will need to access you account and find out if your radio is upgradeable for XM channels. You can find that out once you try to add xm to your account.

If it isn't you can get a free or a discounted radio from them to do it by calling customer service up. They do that for existing customers.

Trying to locate mother's account by SID on car installed receive


You can lookup the SID on Sirius.com if the reciever has been activated. Customer service should have the number as well if you know the phone number used during registration.

Sirius Radio Invalid Channel message


1) Do you have a Sirius account?

2) Have you called Sirius and given the serial number of that receiver?

Those are the first two things you have to do to get a Sirius receiver working. (The original owner could have changed his account to use his new receiver, if he has one.) Go to http://www.sirius.com/install - the "activate" part - for details.

I have a starmate2 replay and what has happened is i turn it on and it stay on the title screen thats it.None of the buttons will work on it only the power button to shut it off.Please help


Three months ago I had the same problem. My wife paid over $300 for the radio, the portable boom-box and subscription less than 2 years ago.
Sirius offered no help or discount on a new radio. Guess they follow the Microsoft doctrine because they suggested I upgrade to a new radio.

Anyhow, feeling frustrated, I took the receiver apart, thinking that a stray voltage on an IC ping maybe causing the problem. It was only a guess. I don't even have a wiring diagram At any rate, once I had it apart, I used a small flathead screw driver and drug it (lightly) across all IC pins, possibly in an effort to drain the voltage. Please do this in a low static area.

When I put everything back together, the receiver worked. It's been working good the up until about 2 weeks ago, when the same problem began again. I just finished the same process and the receiver is working again.

I don't advocate this for anyone who doesn't know how to handle electronics.

I'm just very disappointed in Sirius for not admitting the problem and providing no discount for a newer model. I have a $10 clock radio that's 9 years old. Guess what, I don't have to take it apart every three months to keep it working.

Problem with memory


The problem is simple to fix...shut off radio replays. Thought they are supposed to make you aware of low memory..the replays seem to automatically replace "loved" songs.

Sportster 4 not working...


I had the same issue. This is what Sirius calls a "Frozen Unit". There is no bypass, unfortunately, and it must be returned.

 

I had mine for 3 days and it froze on the Sirius Logo screen when booting up. If you bought the unit from Sirius, you must contact their E-Commerce department. If bought from a retailer, take it back to the store.

 

Sorry, mate.
