Recently on a trip to England, I plugged my radio and charger into a 240 power source. Silly me, I was told that all modern electronics will convert
to 240 if needed. Turns out all of them did except my beloved inno2 and it's treasure chest of music. Now it wont come on at all. I dont know if I fried the changer/base or the circuitry of the radio? Has anyone got any ideas on this one?

I feel your pain. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any car docks, there all discontinued. (sorry bums!)
But, when I'm riding my motorcycle, I put a rubber band around the radio and dock, holding it in place.
But, in a place that doesn't interfere with any buttons or the display.
If anyone can help me with why my radio is not responding to the remote, please let me know. The battery in the remote is good, and I've tried a new remote, but the radio just won't respond to the remotes.
I had to add the sure connect antenna on one vehicle and it solved it. Doesn't make sense since one car would run one receiver and had no sure connect but the one receiver needed it. Anyway-works for me fine now!
I fixed the reboot cycleing problem by plugging the travel charger into the jack that also fits the home and car cradle. I had the Inno set to auto start when it was powered on in the car cradle. The travel plug must have over-ridden the auto-start setting and allowed it to finish the complete bootup. I then reset the Inno default settings and every thing was back to normal. I do not know what was the original cause of the rebooting cycle problem
Did you have the unit installed at a shop that would have hardwired the power source? It sounds like either your power wire to the sirius unit is connected to a noisy power source (which is why you are picking up the alternator whine), or you have a poor ground connection to the unit.
If it was installed at a shop, take it back and have them move the power source to the same wires that the radio gets power from.
If you are using your cigarette lighter for power, unfortunately it sounds like your outlet doesn't give you the best source for powering an audio component. You might try stopping by a car audio shop and ask how much it would cost to hardwire the sirius' power to the back of your radio.
