Default Sportster replay signal problem

Hey guys,

My sportster replay has been working great for the most part over the past 9 months....but this is the second time in about a month and a half i have run into a weird problem.

The music starts getting very choppy and keeps going to "acquiring signal". The weird part is, the 3 bars on the bottom show full signal.

When i go into the menu->signal strength option i see that both the sat and terr signal strengths are going between full and half full showing that is is getting a pretty good signal. It seems that whenever the terr signal maxes out the music skips. When I was almost to work this morning the skipping finally stopped and when i checked the signal strengths the sat signal was still in the high range but the terr signal was only 3 or 4 bars now.

Has anyone ever ever seen this?? I am in the Denver, CO area.

Check around other parts of this forum. There have been other reports of the same problem, apparently related to terrestrial repeater reception in the Denver area.
