Question about Xact Communication Sirius XTR8CK Satellite Radio Receiver with Car Kit

Open Question

Downloading channels 0%

Just the other day, my xact8 receiver was tuned in, nothing out of the ordinary. Then, it started to "download" channels. Although it went through, it only displayed channel 0 (the SID number) and channel 184 (weather/emergency). Since I have a lifetime subscription, this was not acceptable. I turned the unit off, waited a minute, and turned it back on. This time, however, it started to download again, but locked up on 0%. Receiver is about 2-1/2 years old and, until now, has never had a problem. I am almost guessing that the receiver fried (because my antenna is permanently displayed on my dash (with a wide windshield) and is not exposed to the outside elements, nor is it subject to potential vandalism.

SOURCE: Sirius XTR1 Receiver cycles on dog screen with beep - keyboard locked

Hello, I had the same problem with my xact xtr1 and I was advised by xact that they have no repair process in works and most likely wont. They did say let it run for 10 minutes and once you have a menu switch to factory defaults which proves to be a worthless fix. I would have to pay $39.95 for a new radio...horrible customer service. The bright side is that Sirius will not charge me the $75.00 transfer fee as a good faith gesture. I have decided to switch to another radio and leave the Xact brand out of the equation, if there is no upgrade or modification to the existing equipment why set yourself up for a future failure.

Where Can I purchase a new XTR1 satellite radio?

SOURCE: CANNOT READ ANTENNA

I had a similar type problem where i have a lifetime subscription and my XACT VISOR XTR3 unit had a faulty power connection that was driving me nuts. i decided to try and swap out the internal receiver component with a new unactivated unit i bought on ebay. (all the types are out there and pretty cheap even for new)

in opening the new one up i found the only difference from unit to unit is the receiver brain inside the unit, and it is relatively easy to swap out the brain into the body of a new unactivated unit. just four small screws and carefully pull the brain out of the long multi-pin connector. i put the old brain into the new carcass, screwed it back together and it works like a champ. just have some patience in figuring out exactly how your particular unit comes apart, and you will need small screwdrivers and either a small allen-key set or torx set - my old unit had the allen-key screws on the outer case and the newer one had torx screws.

Have Denon AVR-2313ci receiver. FM tuner quit working; will tune in 50 MHz steps, on every step "stereo" and "tuned" are lit but no sound comes out whether actual station or not.


There is no module per se. Tuning is accomplished by applying a voltage to the tuner chip and their associated circuits. It needs to be repaired by a Denon service center.

Cogeco code s0900


The receiver was unable to tune to the selected station for some reason.

From the Cogeco website...
If you see a "One Moment Please" error on some channels that provides a reference code starting with S, it means the receiver was unable to tune to the particular channel(s). If you are also experiencing poor service on your analog channels, this could be related to a signal issue.
You should:
  1. Check the connection to the digital receiver and make sure it is firmly secure.
  2. Bypass any splitters or other equipment between the wall outlet and our TV.
  3. Check if the cable line has been damaged.
You can also try resetting your receiver by unplugging the power for 30 seconds (keep in mind that the menu/guide will need to be downloaded again).
If the "One Moment Please" errors continue, please contact us, as a service call may be required.

Hope this helps!

How do I connect to satellite? Ive tried connecting cable to port that says antenna and cable but no signal?


But do make sure you have the satellite going from outside to the in on the satellite receiver and from the out on the satellite receiver to the television. Then the television would have to be tuned to the correct channel 3.0/3-0. You may have to tune to channel 3.0/3-0 the long way by pressing the 3 the . or - and the enter/ok key.

When you are attempting to connect that way and it is not working then try running the composite/RCA yellow red and white cables from the satellite receiver to the television. Then you have to switch inputs to the av input on the television.

Options to auto-tune or manual re-tune are greyed


Problem solved!!
According to the Sony website I needed to get a software download in order to fix this problem. I found out how to do this from the manual and realised that the re-tune menu I was looking at was for analogue only. The pictograms onmy remote control are a blurred but the manual helpfully provided a picture showing the correct program "info" button (next to 0) which has options to look at other things, including a "detailed set up" menu on the blue tab, which provides options for software download and re-tune of digital channels.
Incidentally, I discovered that my TV model was not quite as quoted above - it is KD-28DX200U, but expect the same process works for other oldish models.

Polaroid FLU-2632 channel searching


Often when using a Sky box, one doesn't use the channel tuning feature of the Polaroid HDTV. Often one connects the Sky box to a component video input, and the Sky box does the tuning.

I hope that helps.
