Default Sportster IR Artist Alert?

Hey,

Thanks to the help of this forum just picked up the Sportster IR and Boombox last week. Love it so far...can't believe how good the reception is in my apartment with thick concrete walls. As long as the antenna is anywhere near a window I get great reception!

Anyways, I've pretty much just been using the basic features so far. But I know that it has game alerts where it can alert me when teams are playing.

Does it also have the same thing for bands? Can I be alerted anytime a certain band is on Sirius?

And does anyone know how many of these alerts I can have stored?

Thanks!

Sportster Replay on has the artist/song combination seek. None of the Sirius tuners yet have the ability to do artist or song. But hopefully when the 3.0g tuners are shown off in late August, we'll find out all those do.

Thanks for the info DAB.

Can I store artist/song seek so it alerts me whenever the artist/song are playing on any station?

And if so do you know how many of these artist/song combo's I would be able to store on my Sportster IR?

Thanks

yeah it searches every channel for what ever song/artist you have stored. im not sure how many searches the IR will hold you will have to look that up in your manual. just search the index for SSeek(Song Seek). you probably have 10 sseek's.

you should have 20 sseeks as they are called

when a song is playing that you wanted to be alerted to all the time just press the memo button and it will say "stored" on the screen.

Yes it will alert you for any artist/song combo you have in the memory and the Sportster Replay like the Sportster has 20 s-seeks that can be saved into the memory. Not to mention that you also have the game alerts for NFL, NHL, NBA and college sports, along with the game zone.

Great...thanks for the info. I'll check that out tonight and look at the manual to get the details.

You know offhand whether the Game Alerts are included in the 20 s-seeks?

If you mean by each time you select a team to be alerted for, does that count against your 20 s-seeks. NO, not at all.

You can't save a song if it isn't on the screen.

No manual entry of song information is possible. You can only add it if its actually playing.

Is there a way to search on an artist, not just artist/song? So whenever Pink Floyd plays the alert will pop up. I think the answer is "no" but it's worth a shot. If it's not something currently available that would be something nice to have in future generation receivers.

Thanks,
Bill
