SIR-KEN1 and Kenwood DPX-701

Good morning. While listening to the Sirius radio, the display starts to display 'waiting' then briefly displays other channel names. I have reset the Kenwood DPX-701, replaced the SIR-KEN1, talked to Crutchfield, Kenwood and attempted to get to Directed Electronics, no success in stopping the erratic display. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Disconnect negative wire from vehicle battery; wait minimum of 1-hour, then reconnect.

Turn on satellite radio, call Sirius tech support to have them resend activation signal. Stay on line with them since it may take them 2 - 3 tries.

Unit keeps beeping and turning itself on and off. Have had this radio for 5 years and never a problem until now.

Hi sasutton,

SIRIUS-Ready radios are usually identified by the SIRIUS dog symbol appearing somewhere on the radio itself. A SIRIUS-Ready radio is a radio that may require the purchase of a SIRIUS tuner in order to be activated.

Every 90 minutes if you do not interact with the player, player display a notice and play a small audible alert to ask if you're still listening to the player. If you're not, the player will shut down after five minutes of the message being up there. If you are there, all you have to do is click the button and you can continue listening. Sirius player do this so that we're not streaming to computers that have no listeners, to maintain optimum performance for active listeners. You are probably not sitting at your computer when this message pops open which is why you get interrupted.

Good luck!
And Thanks.

Sirius satellite radio

You will need to get another sat antenna, and locate it somewhere either above the camper, or where the camper does not obstruct the antenna. Any store that sells sat radio equipment (Fry's, Best Buy, etc) will have the micro antenna. Install it either on the hood of the truck, or on top of the camper. You will need to run the antenna to the rear of the dash. They make Y couplers that will allow you to run both the OEM antenna and the extermal antenna at the same time, and it will not hurt the system to have both wired in at the same time.

Display "Updating"

I am having the same issue with my Eclipse radio with Sirius. I called my installer - Al & Ed's - this was the first that they have heard of this. This suggested that the unit be powered down - disconnected and reconnect the power - but warned me that all of the presets would be lost.

I am going to take it in and have them do that. I will re-post re the outcome.

Very frustrating.

Unit is not locking onto signal

Check your antennae installation. Mine was frayed and I had to buy a replacement for the car.

Sirius Problem

The sirius unit does not have any channels in the unit.
You need to refresh the radio (XM allows you to do it online, I dont know about sirius) and leave it powered on for about an hour for it to update the channel list.

I'm having the same problem and all they reccommend is unplug the unit from the back for ~2 minutes and then plug it back in and power up.

Intermittant display of song title and artist

I believe it's actually a firmware issue with the SIR-KEN1. I havethe same setup and have the same exact problem. I have to cycle thru my "SRC" button and get back to Sirius for it to work. Not a happy camper. I read on the Sirius Backstage forums about the firmware, although I have written Directed Electronics (SIR-KEN1 manufacturer) and never received a response.
