Default Questions Questions -- What I want to know about the stiletto

Questions Questions Questions



First off - speed to turn on. is it really 2 minutes from non sleep mode. Also speed to turn back on switching between batteries.

Playback of .pac files. Someone in the chat last night said you could move the saved files from the radio to the new version of MSS and play them on your pc. Can you do this?

What do you see when you dock your stiletto to the PC? I heard there are a lot of hidden directories? Can you run windows explorer on it? What is the structure of the file system? Can you send us a tree view?

When connected to your wireless lan, can you use your router to see what ip address the stiletto has. Once you do that can you FTP or browse it? how about telnet into it?

On the video, there was a utility that allowed you to view on a PC what is shown on the Stiletto. Are there any executables on the stiletto that could be run from a mapped drive to the stiletto?

Anyone look at the graphics files? Are they simular to what we had in the S50?

I dare to ask, does the 3 finger of the s50 do the same thing on the Stiletto? How about the code for demo mode.

How hot does it get? after playing for a while is it hot to the touch?

I'm sure I will think of many more questions. I did find that a CC has one up in western PA near Harrisburg, but I'm not going 2 hrs to get one. I went there to see Bear league two weeks ago, No road trips this weekend. I'll just wait for mine to come from Tss. Please Hurry Taylor!

In the meantime, I'll get you lucky guys who are the first responders to try these things out for me! Thanks!

That was me. I haven't done some digging yet because I haven't got my Stiletto from Crutchfield, but I was told that the Stiletto is hackable. I will post more later WHEN I get my stiletto.

Took less than a minute.

Have not connected to PC yet.

First look at graphics, S50 (I customized my S50)

Not even warm (this is good)

Still reading, loading s/w and playing.

i have mine connected to the machine. in windows explorer you can see the stiletto100 and get to it. there's 2 dirs data and media. the media dir is just the files you have put on the stiletto yourself. the data dir has a folder called system files. inside it is ratings.xml and systeminfo.xml.

wifi is amazing. unfortunately it just occured to me, i thought that the updates were slow, but the info updates when the next song starts, just like sirius online. i guess whenever they change that, it will change on the stiletto also. sucks, but its all good, better then buy a stupid home kit :P

now if only i had a frickin car kit, i would be able to give my starmate to my sister, now she has to wait :P

Smile Stilleto 100 first day review!

Just got my Stilleto 100 today and it's awesome! My friend at Circuit City told me that I was the first one to get a Stilleto 100 from a Circuit City in the Dallas area. I love it. Some things I noticed are that it hasn't started automatically recording the music stations like the S50 did. Maybe it's because I don't have it in a docking station? I am hoping that is the case? The only other minor complaint is that it isn't as easy to navigate the unit without the playlist button that the S50 had. Other than that it's perfect.

The satellite reception is perfect once you are in an open area. I had it working on a clear sky im car with the windows and the sunroof open and it was choppy still. When your out of the car it works great. The wireless internet works flawlessly. I don't have my own wireless connection but I was able to steal someone elses connection in my complex for a while and it worked better than satellite until he logged off

This unit is amazing! I like it much better than the S50 already. The only thing I prefer on the S50 more so far is how it automatically records channels, but hopefully when I get a docking station that will work on the Stilleto? The navigation was also a little easier on the S50 I think.

Who cares though? The totally portable ability + wireless capability + 100 hours memory + two batteries, make it worth it. It's great, allthough I haven't recorded with it yet but I doubt it can be worse than the S50 was when it unvieled and I bought it?

Final Say: Awesome unit, I love it

Howard will sound great on it!

Mine is working on satellite in my house where the S50 connected to an antenna will not pick up a signal. Sirius has done something special with the Stiletto.

Using nothing but the Stiletto, I have not even unpacked the headphones yet. I listened thru my Shure E4's and currently using the line out to the PC/home theater system. I'm telling you peeps, this radio is special.

Default New URL's for Stiletto

OK guys, Any new sirius.com URL's available?

Is there an update on MSS? what address does it take you to?

I'm wondering if there is an image of the CD?

Or can someone put the CD image up somewhere so we can ftp it down?

What firmware does the system have? Is everyone on the same level of firmware?

jon01, there may be "hidden directories" in the stiletto.
