No this means you can control Sirius radio with your car stereo, but you still require A sirius external device. In other words your looking for simply a Sirius add-on Kit for your stereo, If the kit comes with controller, which most do, then the fact your new car stereo is Sirius Ready, makes the Sirius controller obsolete. I hope this helps.
Sirius Mode Selection While in Sirius satellite radio mode, press S-MOD (22a) (also the SHIFT/SCAN button) to select from four available modes: Normal, Category, Direct Tune and Set Skip Channel. When the Category or Set Skip Channel modes are selected, the corresponding icon appears in the display. When the DIrect Tune mode is activated, the alphanumeric display appears.
Verify if the radio is "Satellite ready" or if it comes with the remote tuner unit. I believe you have to buy a separate tuner add-on and antenna in order to activate the satellite circuitry - THEN it will show you a radio ID. I think ONLY the Alpine comes with the tuner. I would call Crutchfield and they can tell you what all you need with that tuner to make it work with the satellite radio.
The radio does not have a Sirius ID - it is not built in. THe CQ-HR1003u is Sirius READY - meaning... The CQ-HR1003U
can control an optional Sirius Satellite Radio tuner by Panasonic (item
In addition to the Sirius tuner, you will need an antenna and
subscription in order to receive Sirius Satellite Radio programming.
Sirius Ready means that there is another piece the company makes that is for sale seperately from the reciever. you need to get the whole sirius system and it will just plug in and play through your existing setup.
Yes, but it will require a tuner adapter so that your deck will properly recognize XM. However for my deck I noticed that "Sirius" will still be displayed as the satilite provider on the display menu. Confusing but don't cause much concern.
I had the same problem and there are a couple of reason why you may not be able to get into Sirius Mode.
You have the wrong type of antenna (it must be a Sirius approved antenna)
You may not have installed the tuner (most Sirius ready units need require that you have a tuner hooked up to your unit to get satellite reception.The tuners are specific to your unit, so make sure you but the correct one.This is quite sneaky on Sirius’ part…but good luck).
