Question about Sirius Satellite Radio Sirius Sportster SP-R1 Satellite Radio Receiver
First of all, I have been a subscriber to sirius since about 3 months after the release. I am a lifetime member and still to this day is my favorite christmas persent to myself ever.
3 months ago, my channels were being updated and now the headunit has problems in the boomboxes that I haqve.
Now, I have two different boomboxes. One loacted in my house and one inside my office at work. Both never were the same after that "update". It says "antenna not detected" on the screen and the only way I can get it to work is by wedging a folded paper in between the inserted headunit and the slot for the headunit.
Basically, i have to mash the headunit into the cradle for it to work. I have no problems with it in my car, but I recently met a guy that has a boombox at his house. I took it over there and my headunit doesnt work in his boombox but his headunit worked fine in both of my boomboxes.
This is very fustrating to have to wedge this paper in there, plus it doesnt work all the time or sometimes not for very long.
Any advise other than buy a new system?
Your best best is to replace the units. Sirius usually does it for free for existing customers. You can a good discount on a new boombox as well. The new models are designed to work with more Sirus receivers on the market.
