Question about Sirius STILETTO 100 MP3 Player
When I first got my stiletto 2, I was able to record with no issues. Everything worked fine. A few days ago my stiletto 2 only recorded about half of the time duration that I had set up. Then when I recorded yesterday, and went to listen to it today, the recording had completely vanished!!! I don't use radio replays, and my memory is empty (I delete all my recordings after I listen to them). I know I recorded the show yesterday. I'm going to try again today and see what happens.
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.

I have been doing that procedure for the last year. I have spoken with the techs, have the latest software, and my stiletto 2 still deletes my howard stern shows. Yesterday I cancelled my subscription out of pure frustration. I spent close to 500.00 on my unit and it's accessories, and Sirius doesn't seem to care about my problem. The sales person acted as if she had never heard of this problem before.

The Stiletto 2 I have now has started doing the same thing. The erase problem only recently started, and I've had the unit since early summer. What's most annoying is that this is actually my second Stiletto; I had to exchange the original one at Circuit City (fortunately I bought the extended warranty) because it had started acting up as well. That unit had begun locking up frequently.
I think the Stiletto 2 is just a buggy unit.

I have been a loyal customer of Sirius from the Beginning. But I must say I am fed up. I have spent more than 1,000s of $$$s on units and car kits and home kits. But I have Had it. Customer Service has been NO help at all. All they want is more Money. I have replaces and sent back over 5 Stilletto 2. And they all have the same problem. The Original Stiletto was a much better unit. Then they decided to replace it, they said it was better but do not buy it. It is basically false advertising. It is extremely disappointing when you want to hear your programing. And it is all deleted. I was glad to find this site. But my advise is sell everything and get out of Sirius. This is ****

I noticed the the same issues started shortly after i downloaded the updates from the sirius website. i think i may reset the unit and see if that works. If the unit doesen't wipe the recordings it gives me a file is empty error.
