Mine seems to be working again as well but it is quite obvious that the unit is unreliable and unstable...........I have a two year subscription (with a year to go); however, once completed (hoping my S50 lasts that long) I will give up on Sirius - not because the S50 is defective (that we all know) but because any fledging company would try to make their customers happy looking towards the future but Sirius is looking the other way when it comes to the S50. Perhaps they are counting on Stern to keep the subscriptions increasing but my guess is that sooner or later their customer service act will catch up with them.

I'm in the northeast and have been experiencing the same problems. I got the No Signal for a few days, tried to reset the channels a few times, and now the unit is stuck on the 0% completed message. I've removed it from the home dock and removed the battery so many times, I lost count. Is there any way to fix the unit at this point?

Welcome to the "No Signal" club. Don't expect any help from Sirius - they'll exchange your unit but it will be a refurbished unit where you are just asking for more problems down the line.

Mine is again working (after going through what you are now going through) - here are the various things I did:

1) When it says updating channels and it is stuck on 0% - leave it in that position for up to an hour and it might get "unstuck".

2) Take it out of the dock and use it in portable mode - then put it back in the dock and follow #1 above.

3) Reset your antenna - even if you get slightly less power, i.e. I was getting around 80% but I reset it to about 60%.

See if that doesn't do the trick.

Strange, at this time these problems (mine for the first time after a year's use) are now surfacing.

Cool

I'm In South Florida, I've had my S50 for about a year too and I'm having the same issue with the no signal bug, it never happened before, I hope Sirius corrects this problem soon.
