Sirius radio updating channels message
For those of you who have Sirius XM, can you please tell me how many times you see the message, updating channels, on the radio/nav display.
I get that message every time I start the car, VW is trying to tell me that its Sirius that I have to deal with. I've been having issues related to satellite radio since updating mine from version 1040 to 1140. Worth area that has a VAG-COM and can help me downgrade the software version on my RNS-510 in a 2011 Volkswagen CC?
I'm getting one of three errors every time I start the car, but only if the radio was left on a Sirius satellite station - Errors: 1) Antenna Error, 2) GCI Update, 3) Updating Channels. I know this is an Audi forum but I was recommended by [Tex S4] to post here as there might be a good contact or two in DFW with a VAG-COM.
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.
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 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.
But, I don't think that should cause a problem - grabbing at straws, this doesn't make any sense why this is happening. My 2008 535xi has the Sirius XM receiver, which I've always used.
A frustration has been that as Sirius XM has upgraded their selections, they often push a software upgrade out to their receivers to update the channel line... I will bringing it to the car I'm installing it in at Christmas.
I just received a note in the mail about new channels on Sirius XM. The numbers aren't even an option to choose and when try to use voice command to select the channel I still get the "channel not available" message. I've also ordered the latest maps from the Navteq website.
Is it possible to do the map update on the unit while it's on the bench - by powering it with 12 volts from an external supp...
