I ran a Radio Shack pillow speaker from the audio port of the cradle. While the speaker has volume control, even at max the output was faint. Looking for suggestions on what speaker can be run out of that port that will offer some volume. Thanks.

Did you go into the Audio Level Options in the Menu and bring up the output level? If that still isn't loud enough, learn to sleep with open-ear headphones on. If the foam ear-pads aren't old or torn, it's very possible to do.

The low-tech open air headphones + adusting the audio levels solved it...as long as I don't strangle myself with the cord.

thanks for tip.

I use to use open ear headphones a long time ago to sleep with. Some of them snap off the frame, so I just put those in the pillow case.

And I think the solution has been discovered. Since there's an FM radio also on the nightstand and the SR 2000 has an FM transmitter, just let it broadcast to an open frequency and with the radio's volume controls, no worries!

I might have to get a radio on my nightstand and try to listen to music at night. Insomnia is driving me insane. I love the fm transmitter in the SR 2000. My daughter listens in her room through it on her boombox.

No worries, except that when the sleep timer activates after you've fallen asleep, the remaining radio static might wake you up again. If your radio/boombox has and aux-in, a direct connection would be the best way to have it.

don't mess with the sleep timer and let the thing play away all night. Besides, it's best to sleep with one ear open anyway. Learned that in the Army. Too bad XM has Coast to Coast AM. *TIP* Don't listen to "Mad Money" on the CNBC stream late at night...you'll be checking your portfolio until the sun comes up!

I'm picking one up this afternoon, mainly for use at work. I work on the top floor of the building, near some windows (they're about 6-7 feet away), so I'm hoping I can grab a signal. I can get the online fine, but 2 of the channels I listen to the most are NFL Radio and Raw Dog, which is not available on the online feed.


UPDATE:

SWEET! Antenna is getting a full signal in my office. Woo hoo! NFL Radio, Raw Dog, and Hair Nation all day long!

Ok, now I'm frustrated...I leave for the weekend, come back to work today, and now all I get is an "Acquiring Signal" message on my unit. This thing worked all last week, and now suddenly this. Is the satellite that out of the way now? I've let it sit this way (and even set it to the Preview channel) for about 15 minutes and nothing's changed. Any advice? :\

Ok, here's what I've discovered. Suddenly, today, my radio works again at my office. So now, I go into the "Satellite Aiming" screen to see what's what. Well, to my surprise, I'm still getting virtually no satellite signal, but the terrestrial signal is pegged to the end (I didn't check this previously). I'm assuming that's where I got my signal before when it worked...so why would it work for a few days, then go off for a few weeks, then suddenly work again? Is there a terrestrial repeater somewhere around my area that got turned on, then turned off, then turned back on again?

MartianMan, be glad you have such fortune as a repeater near your work area. However, you might want to start a new topic to find out why the repeater signal was different at different times. People with the answers might not ever check this topic.
