Sirius radio updating channels
I think that the "updating channels" messages happen pretty infrequently, and they usually only last for a minute or two.
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.
WILL MY CURRENT SIRIUS RADIO CONTINUE TO WORK AFTER THE MERGER, OR ARE YOU GUYS GOING TO MAKE ME MAD?
We would NEVER upset our 12 million listeners like that.

I had an UPDATING CHANNELS message this morning, 5/25 for about 25 minutes. 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.
Thus each time it had to keep downloading the update.
That's why in Sirius says to just leave it when it said updatng and it will take about a minute.
Without any hesitation the tech said I see they have ordered you the sportster 5 and I will credit the card back the FULL amount once the order is placed and it should ship out on Monday and you should get it by Wednesday. I was also given this number 1-888-635-5142 which is the sirius New York Customer care number.
I was promised a starmate 4 after a week of calling and trying to explain that I didn't break my radio but the update did and was told that I had to buy a radio.
I did get the starmate 4 for .01 but guess what I was sent a Stratus 4 which to me without the remote and replay is just a piece of junk. to bring the price down for a sportster 5 to 39.99 and some extra's thrown in.
For example, channel 90 says it's JBC-Korean Radio when it's really MSNBC now. I did a factory default reset and that didn't help.
Welcome to the Sirius Backstage Archive brought to you by Digital Radio Central.
I did some searching around and couldn't find a solid answer, I have a Starmate R that when I power on goes through the cycle of splash screen, updating channels 100% complete, invalid channel, displays the sid then gets stuck at updating channels 0% complete.
