Question about Sirius STILETTO 100 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Stiletto only records for about 18 munutes

My Stiletto is programmed to record Stern for 6 hours at 3AM PST and keep 10 shows. Same for Bubba at 12 noon ecept 4 hours for his show. A few months ago it started randolmly recording about 18 minutes of Stern then stopping. Some days I'd get the whole 6 hours and others only 18 minutes. Then the problem seemed to stop. Yesterday and today it's started doing it again. For backup, I also program Stern at 3AM on a S50 but of course it only records 4 hours. I don't think it's the antenna because both the Stiletto and the S50 are fed from the same antenna via a Sirius Ehco Signal Repeater, are mounted in excutive docs, and are physically located about five feet apart. The S50 records its 4 hours without a problem. Have you seen this with other Stilettos?

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.

Record a programme a day ahead?


What make and model are you using? Do you have the user's manual? Most DVRs have an electronic program Guide where you find the program on the day you want and you simply select it for recording. The little iView 3600STB II I have for over-the-air TV recording can only list one station at a time and at most only about 12 hours ahead of time. So when I want to record something on the next day I can't do it unless I do within that 12 hour time frame. (NOTE: The instructions in the user's manual says that the box EPG will show one week's worth of programming, and as I've just said I've never seen it list more than 12 hours worth of programming and most times less than that.)

I have been having DISH DVR problems lately. The most recent is my recorded programs list is not showing anything in it. But I only have 13 hours of record time left, so I know they are on there somewhere.


You always want to ensure you have the updates being completed at a time that is most convenient for you, you can change the update time which is generally set to 3am, by going into your MENU selecting option 8 (Preferences) and then selecting option 4 (Updates) you will then be able to change the time the receiver completes updates if you desire and then please just make sure you are shutting your receiver off nightly to allow the updates to be successfully completed (this will help to prevent DVR issues). In addition, once you delete some of your recordings, powering it off nightly allows the hard drive to be refreshed and clears the deleted recording entirely. I hope this helps!

My Stilletto 10 doesn't reliably record programmed talk shows. I leave it on and plugged into my car kit (yes, it is powered by a plug that stays on when the car is off) and when I come back it is...


Is it set for auto shut down? It took me months to properly record with this thing, frustrating at best. Now it's almost flawless. Go in to menu then settings then dock. In that menu you will see "Auto Shutdown". If this is on, your receiver will shut off after 4 hours only when plugged into the car dock. When on a home dock it will stay on. Turn this off and it will stay on until you shut down. Auto shutdown is the default setting. If for some reason you receiver is reset, you will need to check this setting again, because it will turn auto shutdown on again. Hope this helps.

Sirius Stiletto II


If you’re having this problem while using the FM transmitter try using a different FM Station. I have the same problem. Mine only does this when I am using the FM transmitter. I recently noticed my volume is adjustable on certain FM Stations, and on other FM stations the volume control is limited. I hope this helps.

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.

Stiletto 100 recorded content skips


Double check your signal strength during the time of day your recording sounds like classic signal drop. Could also be software issue or memory issue. As a last resort; 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

Short Recording Time


TiVO also plans for other upcoming shows in total recording time. So if you 12 hours recorded, and another 20 or so hours scheduled in upcoming all as don't delete, then it won't allow additonal shows manually
