Default Yes, and also strange dropped signal interval...

Yeah, I did just get a channel update. Strange thing though... I have the receiver on more than 8 hours a day almost every single day, and I've never seen a lost signal (perfect roof-mounted antenna setup). Right before the update, the receiver lost signal for more than 30 seconds. The update started, then another 15-second dropped signal, then a full update. Nothing since. I would guess about 1:40pm PST. Never had a lost signal with this set up in over 1 1/2 years. Strange...

I have an Orbiter. This is the first time in two years that my presets have been erased by an update.

My guess is a systems reboot either from the NYC HQ or inside the Satellite. I don't have my Stiletto on but I'll see in a few minutes what it does.

Post Update on StarBase (took 3-5 minutes) / lost all presets

FYI - Received an update yesterday around lunch time (12pm PST). The radio took 4-5 minutes to complete the update. Normally happens in 30 seconds.

After the update I was tuned to the weather channel with all my presents erased.

I wonder if they sent new firmware to certain receivers.

The update from the "Birds" is only channel information. For the S50 firmware must be downloaded and updated via the MSS software interface through the USB port.

This might just be a coincidence but for the past 2 days My S50 hasn't shut down with the Low Battery warning. It also seems to be showing the correct charge %. (My S50 has the low battery issues of shutting off when it's out of the dock) I will keep watching it while I wait for my replacement to show up.

Update..I guess it was a fluke or that explosion the other night but my S50 is back to it's old tricks and it's Friday and no tracking number or package at my door........
