I had the samething happen with my Orbiter. At around 16:45 the display said "Acquiring Signal" then the radio began to do several channel updates. I was hoping for more of the Canadian channels, i.e 187, 193 etc. But... nothing new.

BTW, it did another update at about 18:50, with still nothing new. We are on Sirius Canada.

Mine was doing it both yesterday and on Tuesday. It happened both times during Sirius Speedway. I never lost a signal, but my radio stopped playing anything and kept saying "Acquiring Signal".

Hasn't done it again...

Curse you Sirius!!! Why don't you ever let us know when something is going on??

If you hadn't guessed, the same thing happened to my JVC yesterday. I haven't turned it on yet today, so I don't know if it did it again.

Here's an interesting point on these channel updates. Got a channel update on two Sirius Sportsters (non-replay) today. Neith of those two had their presets reset.

But no update when I turned on my Brix Streamer Replay. This was the first time all three radios were turned on in the past week.

I was driving home from work when suddenly my radio cut out. I looked down and it said "Acquiring Signal". I opened the antenna aiming menu and saw zero sat and zero terr signal. The area I was in usually has both. After about a minute, it started a channel update. It went through the update count-up four times. I had to wait in my car outside of the supermarket until it finally finished, then I had signal and sound back. When I came out of the store, radio came on for about a minute, then did the channel update again and returned to normal.

It's now in my home dock with strong sat and terr signals and seemingly functioning fine. I don't see any new channels.

So if nobody else had this happen, it must either be just a fluke or my JVC may be on knocking on Death's door, or at least sniffing around it.

That would be a bummer but I'd get over it once I fired up the Stiletto that I'd be FORCED into buying....
Same thing happened to me with my JVC1 and my Orbiter.
Gone to DRC!!!
