Default Stiletto shutdown while doing scheduled recordings

I have had this problem for the last couple of nights. I have the recordings scheduled from midnight to 4:00 am doing 20 min recordings of multiple channels. The recordings worked great the first week. but the unit has just started to shut completley off the last few nights in the middle of the recordings . I have been using the soloist and the home dock to record at night and it does the same thing in both docks. I have tried to reschedule the recordings , pulled the battery , and clear erased the unit and still had the problem. Also when i use the small battery if i put any kind of pressure on the back of the unit it shuts the unit compltely down. I just got back from circuitcity and the have orded me a new one that i should be receiving sometime this week. I just wanted the people on this foroum to be aware of these problems and to see if anyone else had the same thing happen to them.Hopefully the new unit will be problem free.

I've been having a problem with the Stiletto and Soloist somewhat similar to your problem. My Stiletto has been turning on by itself and off by itself while in the Soloist. I am going the swap my Soloist to see if that eliminates the problem.

I don't have a Sloloist but I have seen posts where guys have had the SL and soloist out of sync, therefore causing problems. Did you read the manual?

I have both the soloist and the home dock and it happend in both docks. It would wake up and record a few channels and then completely power off not just go to sleep.I tried to setup some recordings this morning to test it out and it would record two or three channels and miss a recording or two and then start recording again. for example i would set it to record channels 18,15,20,27,8,and 5.It would record channels 18 and 15 miss 20 record 27 miss 8. I made sure all the start times were entered properly and they were ok. I could not make it shut down this moring though. I thought it might have been a heat issiue but last night it came on and recored 2 channels and powered off for the rest off the night.

This is unacceptable. If the problem is widespread they need to go back to the store.

I hope its not a wide spread problem . I returned mine today to circuit city and im waiting for a new one to be shipped . I also had a problem while using the slim battery pack . If i put any kind of pressure on the back of the unit such as sliding it in a case or pocket it would shut down the stiletto, but this does not happen while using the extened life battery pack.

Tell us exactly how you were setting up these recordings for 15 minutes each? Give us a run down with specifics. I've setup several, several recordings on mine, even a few back to back, but I always leave time between them even if it just a few minutes, to make sure from one recording to the next is clear.

I can tell you this is no widespread issue, because we would have heard about it already as many folks as we have recording Stern and Bubba.

I start my recordings at 1:00 am on channel 20 then set up another recording every 20 minutes . example 12:00 am to 12:20 record channel 20 next recording 12:20 to 12:40 channel 8 ect until 4:00am . The thing is i didnt have any problem with this recording issue for the first two weeks of recording like this . All the channels recored properly without a problem until the last couple of days. With the slim battery issue i was having i thought it was best to just return mine asap.Its good to here there have not been alot of problems thats why i was surprised that mine was acting up like this . I read this forum everyday to keep with any problems that might come up and have not seen this isssue so i decided to post in hopes it might help someone else.

Hmm, now that I think about it, my Stiletto has turned itself off while in the Soloist.

No, it's not a timer issue. Just while listening to it normally (usually recording).

Strange. I'll keep an eye on it.

I started having problems recording while it was in the soloist so when i got my home dock i was hoping that it would not happen while docked in it but it did . I also noticed that 2 nights in a row it shut down at the 2:00am recording so i tried rescheduling all my recording times and the next night it shut down in the middle of the second scheduled recording.

I'm just wondering if maybe something is going on with the signal. I take it that if there is no signal, the Stiletto will shut down to sleep mode when it is recording a scheduled block of time. Then, "wakes" again if it gets a signal within the few minutes before it shuts down permanently. I'm guessing this is how it may work. Maybe a spike or surge? Overheating? Could be most anything but we need to figure out what the problem is.

No the signal is good I have the antenna on the roof . When the stiletto shuts down it does not go to sleep mode it shuts down completely. It might be overheating but that still doesnt explain the missed recordings this morning while i was trouble shooting for problems . Hopefully mine is the only one having this issue .

So looking at your schedule, you don't seem to be allowing anytime between recordings. Not sure that is necessary, but I purposely always leave at least 5 minutes. I just used basically the same recording schedule you did to test mine out and every single one of them recorded.

Can I ask why would you want like 15 minutes of each channel, where you end up with a cut off song at the beginning and a cut off song in the end? I just set my tuner to listen to channels for 15 or 20 minutes and the Radio Replays starts with the beginning of the first full song and ends with the last full song, so that way you don't have a bunch of partial songs. I am just trying to understand why you are recording like this?

Anyway... I can't duplicate your problem with my Stiletto.

I record in 20 min blocks so i can use the shuffle feature of the stiletto. I like to listen to a wide range of music at work instead of just one station at a time and with the shuffle feature i get to listen to 20 min of one station before it goes to the next station and next 20 minutes ans so on. I also have an INNO and i like the random individual song feature that it offers. Since the stiletto does not have that feature this is as close as i could get to it.

I see, well that makes perfect sense to me.

I think the partial songs would be a turn off for me, but I do understand the variety. Have you tried Sirius Shuffle.. they play a pretty wide assortment, though mostly pop/r&B/country. Not sure what your taste is in music. When I use my iPod I always use the shuffle features, so I can relate to your desire to have variety. You may want to try to schedule those recordings and this time leave a 5 minute space between them and see if this doesn't help. If not, then I'd say you more than likely have a bad Stiletto.
