I would guess that when you are on FM or CD the sirius is not on, why would it be, it makes no sense.Thus each time it had to keep downloading the update. On a 45 minute commute its a pain not to have music for so long. I think that the "updating channels" messages happen pretty infrequently, and they usually only last for a minute or two.I think that the "updating channels" messages happen pretty infrequently, and they usually only last for a minute or two.I could listen to it for about half a minute or so and then it would go to FM Radio. Maybe it had to do with the fact that I was driving while it was updating? - AFE Momentum GT Intake, SOLO Performance Exhaust, 20% Tint, Black Carbon Fiber Racing Stripes, tinted tails, Oracle LED sidemarkers, BT catchcan and underhood bling, Rennen Forged RL-55x wheels, Nitto NT555 G2 tires Do you even lift? It auto switches back to whatever radio band you were last listening to.I drove around for 30 minutes and tried it a couple of times and it kept doing it. Pulled the car out of the garage this morning, turned it to Sirius and let it do the updating while the car was sitting there. Around here while driving I listen to AM 680 - so it defaults back to AM in my case.For weather data Service, the activation fees can be found in our Customer Agreement.Taxes: You are responsible for all taxes or other government fees and charges, if any, which are assessed based on the Service address on your account.
Well most people recieved the updating signal on MOnday, like the email said that SIrius sent out.
The fee is payable with your first subscription fee payment.
For audio Service, the activation fee is currently .00.
Your situation defintiely sounds like it was not the norm. I wonder if the updates take longer if the signal gets blocked at all during the update process. I'm not sure if changing sources would cause the problem though.
I have a combined Kenwood unit with built-in Sirius. Total elapsed time was around 25 minutes but the amount of time it was on 'Sirius' was probably alot less. I would think that once your car is powered on, your Sirius tuner would automatically be powered on as well and begin pulling in the Sirius signal regardless of whether or not you're listening to Sirius on your radio. maybe changing the radio sources somehow interferes with the Sirius tuner.
