Directed or SIRIUS themselves don't have any splitter for it unfortunately. Otherwise we'd have it. Some of these new Home Antenna Kits only frustrate those who have the Outdoor Antenna because they wish that they could have these instead, now that they are out.

That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the tip.
Next on my list is a cary case and belt clip.
I'll be ordering from TSS when they are in!

Default Agreed--TSS Superb Operation

I pre-ordered the Stiletto from Tss and they were wonderful about keeping me up to date regarding the release date; then I ordered the home dock and leather case. Shipping is sensationally fast. I have a second order into them for another Stiletto. TSS is first rate, and I didn't realize they had anything to do with this forum until reading this thread, and that gives me even greater respect for them.

i ordered the car dock from TSS about 3 weeks ago and no word yet. Kind of frustrating when BB has them in stock near me.
Any word on when they are getting them?

thanks

I would cancel the order with us honestly. We got a small batch of car kits, but not anywhere near what we've ordered. And from what I've heard, it looks as if the Vehicle Kits will be on Backorder for a while. It sounds like they may switch over to the other kind of Transmitter, the one that Orbitcast and SSG pointed out. Where something is installed on the back window of the car.

You know this lack of inventory really sucks big time. How in the hell does sirius expect great retailers like you guys to stay in business. This time of year is where you guys will make all your money. First they make you put huge orders in the system, probably give you guys net 30 and then don't deliver. You are ready with the manpower to ship. You secure loans to have the money to pay for it, then Wham, nothing to sell.


Next Thing you know we will be reading the TSS Blog and see you guys out on the street installing radios for food.

People really have no idea.

It's always this time of year that is so exciting, but I always threaten to quit my own business because of the stress of getting this stuff. It's the only time where we have almost no control whatsoever. On the bigger more in demand products like the Stiletto this year and the S50 last year, SIRIUS takes over and determines how get's what and when. We didn't get blessed like CC, but we did get them before BB and most others.

It's an incredible frustration. We've placed orders in the VERY Beginning, prior to most ppl even knowing the Part #, and we've only received about 1/8 of what we ordered. It's just how it works. There are delays and we are told next week next week a lot. It's not even that Directed is to blame or even SIRIUS. It's maybe 1 or 2 people who have control over this kind of thing from the factory. It's so complex. In any case, it's not an easy business at all to be in and I'd not recommend anyone getting into it.

But no matter how I bitch and complain to those who help us get product, it doesn't make it come in on the boat or plane any faster. At least by the end of tomorrow we will have Stiletto Pre-Orders all filled and done with and have some in stock for a brief period.

Alas.

I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU to TSS-RADIO!

I received my Stiletto and car kit yesterday and the wait was worth it!!

Special thanks to Taylor for putting up with my "weekly check-in" emails. I really appreciate the great communication and honesty regarding the status of my order. Great customer service!!

I highly recommend TSS-Radio to everyone! I fully intend to do all my Sirius shopping at TSS from now on.

Thanks again TSS!!

Sean

Taylor, I was wondering, you mentioned that they are going to try a different kind of FM adapter for the car dock. Do you think this will slow down the production of the car kit?

It is. The Gap between the Car Kits that shipped 2-3 Weeks ago and those that came into the country then and the next batch will longer than usual.
