Question about Sirius STILETTO 100 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My stiletto records for about 18 minutes then stops

My Stiletto SL100 is programmed to record Stern (6 hrs @ 3AM PST) and Bubba 4 hrs @ 12 noon PST) each day and keep 10 shows. A few months ago it started randomly recording about 18 minutes of Stern, then stopping. Some days the whole show, lots of days 18 minutes. I started programming my S50 as a backup and it has no problem but is limited to 4 hrs. Then the Stiletto seemed to start working properly. Yesterday and again this morning, 18 minutes of Stern again while the S50 recorded its whole 4 hours. Both receivers use the same antenna via Sirius Echo repeater, and are physically about five feet apart. Anyone ever heard of this problem with a Stiletto?

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.

2 other remote possibilities:

If no signal is present at the time the recording is scheduled to start, the recording will be skipped.

Make sure you have followed all instructions on pp. 55-58

Stiletto 2 ...pin bent...now broke off !

The pin on the Stiletto 2 connector was indented a little last week. This week it broke off and the radio will not work. I am thinking the dock connector would have to be replaced.

Anyone know who can repair this?
Is this a common problem for the Stiletto 2 ?
Thank you !

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.

Sirius Stilleto 100 skipping issue


Usually this is a signal issue and it happens when recording indoors mostly, right? The signal dropps but only for a second or two so when you look at it its fine. you've probably notived it cutting in and out when "live" from time to time. Use your signal meter built in to the device and find the strongest signal location. If that doesnt work or its not the problem, update the software. If that doesnt work try running the recovery software but only as a last resort because you'll lose your recordings.
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.

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
