Sirius Stiletto SL100 not recording Replay

I have a Stiletto SL100 and a few months ago, it stopped recording Replay channels and will not record scheduled recordings. It says that it is recording, but no recordings show in the library and the memory states that it is 72% full. I cannot find any recordings.

I have tried the Device Recovery process three times and it still does not work correctly. Is there a way to completely erase the SL100 and reinstall the firmware and software? Would that help? If so, does anyone have step-by-step instructions on how to do this so I don't render the radio completely useless?

Sirius technical support says that the radio should just be replaced, but I don't want to replace it if it can be repaired.

    It is my understanding that this problem is widespread (I am having the same issue) and is related to the new xm/sirius channel lineup that was implemented several months ago when the channel update was transmitted to our units. Technical support has been unhelpful. I suggest contacting them again and ask they create a case number and escalate this issue. It is very frustrating.

It is due to the differing transmission signals on shows and channels that originate from the Sirius studios that used to be XM studios. You will notice it is not on all channels, and on some channels not on all shows. The channels and shows that don't work aren't marking the breaks between the songs with a signal that your stiletto is listening for.

Sirius technical support is overall much less than helpful, I have been hung up on, transferred to the department that cancels service and told that I need to buy a new radio.

A (rare) truthful and knowledgeable Tech Support gave me this information two days after the channel lineup and it has been verified by TS managers I have spoken with after being frustrated with subsequent calls.

The S2 has been updated (in april) for this problem.

We all need to call Sirius and demand that they support our radio and update the OS and ZAP code.

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.

My stiletto records for about 18 minutes then stops


Daylight savings time change a few months ago messed up the timer recording schedule - you must now fix it. Daylight savings time changes will always mess up this recorder. You must reset your recording schedule.

For more info on fixing, go to:

2 other remote possibilities:

If no signal is present at the time the recording is scheduled to start, the recording will be skipped.

Make sure you have followed all instructions on pp. 55-58

Stiletto 2 deletes recordings


I'm a relatively new subscriber, only having my stiletto2 for 3 months. It just started "not recording" and "deleting my recordings". In researching, I came to this thread. Since no one really seems to have posted a real solution here, I'll share what I've found elsewhere.

1.) Check to make sure your SL2 has the latest software (ZAP). To find out what version you have, navigate to Settings >> Device >> Device Info. If your software is not up-to-date simply connect your radio to Internet Radio for about an hour and it will be downloaded. You will get a notice on your screen when the update is complete.
2.) Perform a Full Shutdown of your SL2 at least once a month by holding the power button down for 10 seconds. If you do a lot of recordings it's advised to perform a shutdown weekly or more for best results. This will flush the system, clean up and remove old and expired recordings/replays and reduce general screen lag. For some this simple step has eliminated missing recordings all together.
3.) Do not use your SL2 as an archive device and try to avoid using your internal memory over 50% for the time being. If you do a lot of recordings it's also advised to disable Radio Replays.

If 1-2-3 don't work, try 4
4) Set and Erase
4a. go into your Settings Menu>>Device>>Reset & Erase.
4b. As soon as you complete the process (Reset & Erase) and have rebooted, you will need to connect to Wi-Fi again to again download the baseband update. Let it run for at least 30 minutes to ensure that it is able to get the entire update. Then tune to Satellite Radio it SHOULD complete the baseband update.
4c. You should see the Updating SIRIUS message for about 7 minutes. If it's only up for a minute or two, then it may bet hat the update failed again. You can check the Service Info screen to be sure.
4d. If you then shutdown your SL2 (by holding down the power switch for 5 seconds) then turn it back on, it should complete the baseband update process.

Sirius Stilleto 100 skipping issue


Usually this is a signal issue and it happens when recording indoors mostly, right? The signal dropps but only for a second or two so when you look at it its fine. you've probably notived it cutting in and out when "live" from time to time. Use your signal meter built in to the device and find the strongest signal location. If that doesnt work or its not the problem, update the software. If that doesnt work try running the recovery software but only as a last resort because you'll lose your recordings.
SIRIUS Device Recovery (SDR) is a software application that helps you recover your Stiletto (SL2, SL100 or SL10) in the event of a complete system failure.
The SIRIUS Device Recovery program retrieves the latest version of software for your Stiletto from the Sirius website. NOTE: Performing device recovery WILL ERASE the entire contents on your Stiletto: all music, Sirius recordings, channel presets and any user preferences. The Stiletto will be reset to its original factory state. You can perform the revovery from the Sirius Studio software that came with your device or http://www.sirius.com/mysiriusstudio
