Question about Xact Communication XTR1 SIRIUS Radio Receiver
My Sirius XTR1 is mounted in a XTR boom box. Suddenly about 15 days ago the Xtr1 goes as far as the Sirius initial display (dog screen) and 30 seconds later briefly blinks with a beep and then goes back to the dog screen. No text - menu's etc is displayed and the keyboard is locked. Is there a solution - other than replacing the unit as suggested by Sirius ? Elsewhere on the net I see that Sirius did a download to all units and some units locked up ? Your input - Sugestions - work around will be appreciated ...
Hello, I had the same problem with my xact xtr1 and I was advised by xact that they have no repair process in works and most likely wont. They did say let it run for 10 minutes and once you have a menu switch to factory defaults which proves to be a worthless fix. I would have to pay $39.95 for a new radio...horrible customer service. The bright side is that Sirius will not charge me the $75.00 transfer fee as a good faith gesture. I have decided to switch to another radio and leave the Xact brand out of the equation, if there is no upgrade or modification to the existing equipment why set yourself up for a future failure.

I had the same problem recently with my year old Sportster 4. I called Sirius and they sent me a refurb Starmate N/C except for $10 shipping. The radios are apparently not repairable. By the way, the suction mount that came with the Starmate broke the first time I mounted it, don't throw out your old mount!
