I've had a Sirius Sportster Replay (lifetime subscription) for a little over two years now. For the last several months (since about late August or early September), I've been horribly annoyed by the frequent "Updating Channels" messages that the unit displays. Over the last several months, it has happened two to three times a day for a couple of minutes at a time. During this time, there is no sound and the Updating Channels message increments itself 20% at a time. When it reaches 100% after a few minutes, nothing has really happened other than the interruption of service. From reading over on siriusbackstage, I noticed that people with units from the same era (but not necessarily the same model) began experiencing the same annoyance at around the same time: Frequent Channel Updates? - SIRIUS Backstage Forum updating channels - SIRIUS Backstage Forum Is there anything that can be done? Since it began happening to different models nationwide at around the same time, I doubt that there is anything actually wrong with my radio. Furthermore, I'd hate to have to use up one of my three lifetime subscription transfers if Sirius is doing something underhanded to get people with older hardware (or lifetime subscriptions) to buy new radios. Does anyone out there have any more insight on this issue?
