But when I hit the "all stations" button or otherwise try to find a XM station menu (like other non tesla cars typ show/have) I can find no such menu.I have had XM send the signal several times, car in clear sky line etc.I also used the home dock to record some of my favorite shows for playback later.I believe it is the ability to record programming which is this unit's strong suit.It is also convenient to learn how to read the connection status image.
If you wish to use it mostly indoors, you'll need to install the included home dock/antenna properly. In fact, I was able to listen to live XM/Sirius radio while biking over the weekend with very little interruption.
In other words, my system works fine 23.5 hours a day, but, come 0100 AM Eastern time, I can expect to get a garbled and/or silent signal sometime in the coming 120 minutes, which garbled and/or silent signal rarely lasts more than 30 minutes. I'm not plagued by neighbors' kids playing pranks or wild animals exploring, particularly given the time of day.
Does Sirius lend its satellite to NSA to do God knows what for half an hour every morning? I bought my radio in 2008, and I bought the table top sound system (Speakers) to go with it, and the instructions said to face the antenna South Southwest, Well I haven't had a problem in, well maybe a couple, in over 4 years, and the past year or so, the signal would go out a couple times a week, I was so tired moving the antenna, just to put it back in the same place, I was ready to give up, and get a new radio, until I saw Cocavan's post, and your links Charles, thank you both.
I have a chronic problem with Sirius signal degradation and unending “acquiring signal” display and it always occurs between 01 AM Eastern time. Are Sirius engineers tweaking the satellite when they think fewer people are listening?
Are they trying to update software that will put older, but still working receivers out of business?
