Satellite No Longer An Option on My Kenwood KDC-MP228

This morning I was driving along listening to Sirius satellite radio when it suddenly went silent. I tried switching to another satellite preset, but it was as if the radio was "frozen." So, I turned off the entire radio after about a minute and went to turn it back on and it went straight to TUNER (FM). I pressed the button again and it went to STANDBY. I pressed it again (thinking it would go to SIRIUS, which is usually the next selection), but it went back to TUNER (FM). The bottom line is: I can listen to FM/AM radio but SIRIUS is no longer a choice on my radio. It goes from TUNER to STANDBY every time I press the button. Help!

Your going to need to pull off the battery cable for about 2 to 5 minutes and see if this will reset the radio. Good Luck

The radio says it's Satellite ready, but when I hit the search button I do not get a Satellite option. When I called Sirius/XM to switch service from one car to another, they said that I must now also...

No it is satellite ready, meaning you need to add atuner to the stereo, but you can use the stereo to control the tuner. Again, a seperate tuner will need to be bought and installed. Good Luck.

No Sirius or Sat option when pressing Source button

Once everything is connected including antennae, there must be period of time for the head unit to recognize the SAT tuner (SC-C1 in this case). When I started up the car the next day the head unit automatically tuned itself to the Sirius preview channel.

Basically, this just means that the head unit is designed to be ready to have a Sirius Satellite Radio system installed. Instead of having to cut and chop wiring and the like, it's ready to just be plugged into the head unit. No need for added expense of adapters and the like just to hook the system up to your car. :)
