Default problems w the home dock

or w/ the s50. But right now, I have 100% satellite reception and 0% terrestrial, and no channels are working. Is this a problem on my end. I try to change to my usual channels and it says invalid channel. Also it stays on the sirius logo when I put the s50 turned off on the home dock.

Try pulling the battery for a few minutes, then reinsert it.

Then put in home dock and power up.

I did. No luck. Everything else is working fine when it's not in the home dock. I did connect it to the PC, and the PC had no problem recognizing it. Any other thoughts...do you think it has anything to do with the terrestrial signal being non-existent?

Do a channel reset and it'll be fine - if you have any scheduled recordings, be SURE to erase and re-program them, as the reset will mess up the timer schedules......Good Luck!

Every time I dock mine in the home dock, I have to do a channel reset or I get choppy reception even tho it shows 2-3 bars.
