Default Aquiring Signal

I have a Sportster Replay that was purchased a year ago and has been working great until yesterday.

On the way to work the screen changed from artist/song to Aquiring Signal. I was getting a full 3 bars of signal along with the 10 full bars on the antenna aiming. I turned the unit off/on and the same message was there for at least 20 minutes and then all of a sudden it went back to artist/song and I had music once again. No trouble at all on the way home or on the way back into work this morning.

Can anyone tell me what this might have been? Is the unit going South or just a glitch from Sirius?

Thanks,
Brian

Same thing happened to me yesterday morning with my 1.5 yr old Sportster Replay. I thought my unit was turning into a brick! Once it came back it's been "fine" I hope it's only a glitch with the "birds"

I've got a Starmate Replay too and in the past couple of weeks when I turn it on it periodically displays the Sirius SID for about two minutes before playing the station. If, while it's displaying the SID msg, I turn it off and on, it will usually come right back on (playing music) without the SID message.

I've tried to ignore it... but it does sound like something's going on.

My s50 did almost the same thing yesterday. Except it never said "Acquiring Signal", it just never showed Song/Artist and didn't play music.

Glad to see I wasn't the only one experiencing this problem. That leads me to believe that the unit is okay.
