Question about Sirius Satellite Radio S50-TK1 Satellite Radio Receiver with Car Kit

S50 quit receiving sat sig after updates

Bought the S50 12/06. Love IT! Especially it being portable. Anyway I attached the USB cable to PC & did all the necessary (doubt it was necessary now) updates. After the Step 1 is Step 2 "car dock" put it in the car dock & that update was completed, it just sat there on the main screen, then after awhile it showed it was on Ch. 184 it just sat there with no sound or anything displayed on the screen. I've contacted everyone & did everything...they said I need to get a new one, because it'safter the 1 yr warrenty, which kinda stinks because its (I think) the softwares fault. I worked beautifully until I did the UPDATES. Any more tips, solutions, ideas...etc...would be great...PLEASE HELP

    My s50 just did the same thing on 9/22/08. This was after receiving a different S50 from Sirius after I sent it to them for the updates. I think it is the unit or software.

    I had the same problem! Got my S50 Dec. 06 and loved it. Got a notice to do a mandantory update, and it got stuck on the last step. Says Updating, 0% Complete, and will not work. Also goes to Ch. 184. I called Sirius Customer Support and they basically told me that there was a problem with my unit, and I would have to buy a new one! Can't believe it! It worked fine until this mandantory update. I couldn't be more dissappointed with Sirius. If the product has a defect, then replace it, end of story. Horrible business practice! Seems there are quite a few of us experiencing this problem, and Sirius is unapologetic.

    I have the same problem, after update, it would not update firmware.  It flaked out before I updated, then after update, it totally quit.  Sirius tech support sucks.  They said my receiver was broke and would not replace it.  Replacement is around $199!

I have just bought a Nuvi 1240 sat nav. Never had a sat nav before My question hopefully is simple . It does not have a USD cable so where do I go to get map updates and how do I do it ?


There should have been a mini USB cable with it to connect to the computer. You should go back to where you got it and ask for one. If that's not possible they can be bought in most computer shops fairly cheaply. Details on how to update your maps are available at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Sirius S50 "No channels available"


I had the exact same problem happen to me yesterday with my S50. My guess is that the software got corrupted somehow. I fixed mine last night be reinstalling S50 software via USB cable to my PC. Note: You need My Sirius Studio application loaded on your PC. Be sure to press Exit button on My Sirius Software Ap after you reinstall S/W. Patiently wait for S50 to 100% complete before disconnecting. Then, manually turn on S50 (while holding in your hand); do NOT put in car/home dock yet. S50 will then update S/W. When this completes, now you can put in dock. I don't exactly recall, but I think the S50 indicated the dock was being updated, then it defaulted to channel 184 indicating to call Sirius to subscribe. Since I already have a subscription in place on my S50, I just pressed channel 2 (The Blend) from my remote, and then my S50 began updating all channels. Success! I'm so happy my S50 is now working again! Good luck to others experiencing same problem; hope this helps! I can only imagine the frustration trying to get help from Sirius folks for this type of problem...

500 GB WD MyBook crashes running XP pc when


Windows is trying to boot from your external disk

Turn off the OTHER boot or USB boot options in your bios.

This should fix your problem.

I have also included a few other tips below which may be of use


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

Just bought new Tomtom and it says to update within 30 days but I don't know how


Hi, If its all working OK to your requirements . Let sleeping dogs lay. Theres no need to update it if you are happy. If you require traffic information updates ( thats if you are paying a subscription for the service ) then you will probably want to update anyway..... You can update by going to the TomTom website and downloading their software "TomTom Home" . Install this to your PC and follow the instructions . You will need to connect your TomTom to your PC via USB cable in order for any updates to take place. TomTom Home does this automaticly for you ( more or less ). You should laos have received a CD with your TomTom at purchase and this CD contains the TomTom Home software . Good Luck.

Probleme s50 usb conect pc


You have to use My Sirius Studio as the interface to your S50 to add/remove MP3 songs. Depending on your Windows version (hopefully 2000 or later) you should be able to connect via USB and Windows will autodetect the device. My Sirius Studio is a poor man's iTunes where you have to add music files before you can drag them to the playlists you created on your S50. You can download the software from the Sirius web site, including the latest update. Keep in mind you have to disconnect the S50 from My Sirius Studio. You can't copy files to it and then unplug the USB cable.
