This is really an interesting discussion for me about the SL2. I have not been on this board for awhile. However I just wanted to throw out my two cents about my SL2. I still thankfully have one that still works with a lifetime subscription. I use it only in my car. The antenna was mounted by Best Buy outside on the trunk. It amazes me though even with the outside mount, I live in Massachusetts (south of Boston) and sad to see how trees really ruin the reception at times and there is nothing you can do. Still I'm determined to just keep using it because it still works well.

My issues I have with the SL2 is that it no longer records for me and I lost all of my "Favorite" recordings and songs. It only has my stored music I uploaded a long time ago. I don't know if there is any way to get mine to go back to recording. I sent it a few years ago to TSS and they did a great job cleaning it up and babying it as some of you said and it's still working since probably 2005. My other question as I was reading this thread was about keeping the radio out of heat. This is probably where I have failed as the owner and continued to leave it in my car when I'm at work and home. Do you usually take it with you everywhere you go or how do you deal with the heat and is the cold just as bad a problem on it? Thanks for any advice and appreciate this thread.

Keeping it out of the heat is a good idea.

Have you tried any of the clear memory & reset tricks that people have mentioned?

It's awesome that the thing is still running at all.

Good luck with it.

My SL2 also won’t record. It is a bug in the OS and once corrupted it is done for. No more option to do a reload. Reset doesn’t work anymore. Still works but I listen online now mainly.

I'm guessing you meant 2015, as no Stiletto was around in 2005.
