hOwdy folks

been using my sirius sportster<<R since howard first started with no problems other than having to replace those weather prone dot micro antennas every other year

until this week :bigahh:

for the past week ive been getting the "aquiring signal" display with no bars and the X in the lower left corner with both my current dot micro AND my backup antenna - so i think its safe to rule out any antenna problems - been babying this radio in a dust free indoor only environment and all of the connections seem fine

so i'm wondering.... is that what these sportsters do when they die ?
are there any places that repair tuners in these things ?
customer service has been useless no surprise
they just want me to buy a new one
anyone with similar experiences ?
i'm a lifetime subscriber
and just cant let go
suggestions ?

I feel your pain SMJ.

Send a personal message to drdroo. He can fix some of the radios, depending on whats wrong with them.
