Starmate sirius problem updating stations
When I contacted Sirius, they admitted that its antennas do "wear out" after a couple of years and need to be replaced.
Seems to us they should offer these replacements free of charge to continuing subscribers, but they disagree.
Is it possible that, when the temperature dips to its lowest of lows in the wee small hours, it affects my antenna's reception? Hopefully that will be the end of my having to change the antenna all around.
Acquiring Signal, No Signal What’s happening: Acquiring Signal is one of the more complicated common issues.
It happens when either your radio or docking station cannot acquire the signal from your antenna.
I'm in southwest Missouri and have an unobstructed view of the sky.
My antenna is linked to a home dock, neither of which moves in the wee small hours of the morning.
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.
