Sirius Activations on VR 185 Jensen Radio

We have a VR 185 "Sirius ready" radio in our new motor home. We want to activate Sirius. Their internet instructions say to "tune to Channel 184".
How do we do that?

Sorry, that manual contains NOTHING. Apparently there's another module you must buy. I'll post again if / when I find more info.

Unit keeps beeping and turning itself on and off. Have had this radio for 5 years and never a problem until now.


Hi sasutton,

SIRIUS-Ready radios are usually identified by the SIRIUS dog symbol appearing somewhere on the radio itself. A SIRIUS-Ready radio is a radio that may require the purchase of a SIRIUS tuner in order to be activated.

Every 90 minutes if you do not interact with the player, player display a notice and play a small audible alert to ask if you're still listening to the player. If you're not, the player will shut down after five minutes of the message being up there. If you are there, all you have to do is click the button and you can continue listening. Sirius player do this so that we're not streaming to computers that have no listeners, to maintain optimum performance for active listeners. You are probably not sitting at your computer when this message pops open which is why you get interrupted.



Good luck!
And Thanks.

You need to call sirius @ 1-888-GET-SIRIUS (438-7474) and they will remotly reset the radio for you. This has happened to me twice and this is the only way i have found to fix it.

Our new motorhome came with a sirius ready Jensen vr187 radio-how do we hook up to Sirius, and does it need an antenna, or is that part of ''sirius ready''?


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.

Sirius Radio Invalid Channel message


1) Do you have a Sirius account?

2) Have you called Sirius and given the serial number of that receiver?

Those are the first two things you have to do to get a Sirius receiver working. (The original owner could have changed his account to use his new receiver, if he has one.) Go to http://www.sirius.com/install - the "activate" part - for details.

Jensen MSR4050G Sirius Ready marine radio


I had the same problem and there are a couple of reason why you may not be able to get into Sirius Mode.

  1. You have the wrong type of antenna (it must be a Sirius approved antenna)
  2. 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).

Dick,
Did u go to the menu to get the Sirius ID# or ESN# or did u get it from the box or back of the unit itself?? I used to work in activations department for sirius and the most common reason that a plug and play unit would not activate is a mismatch in ID #'s. I have seen units with one ID number, but the box or the back of the radio actually being labeled with a different number. By the way,only one signal can be sent to the radio every 20 minutes or so and most reps you talk to don't even know this. So after sending the first signal, all they are doing is clicking a button on the screen and getting a message back that says "Duplicate Provision" meaning that the signal cannot be sent because it is already sent. If you were hearing audio on channel 184 when the signal was sent and you made no adjustments during this time, and the SID or ESN number is the correct one for your unit, and the radio doesn't activate, I would get a replacement. But this never happens in my experience unless there are other signs of defect.

Hope this helps!!
