Just got my home dock today and I get no sat signal at all. S50 I get signal ( not much but it works). Even tried using the car antenna and still nothing.

Try putting the antenna outside. Most of the time this helps.

Tried that and nothing different. Wonder if I have a dud like my car dock was.

If you run the Sirius Antenna cable along the DirecTV coaxial cable, will there be any interference with either signal?

No. That's what I did. I ran it right into the house where they did.

I did it -- i got some extension cable from Radio Shack (needed it today so i overpaid instead of getting it from TSS) and started scouting for the best place to place it

And you know what's weird? I got the best reception right off my front stoop!!!! I tried out every window and 1/3 bar... My stoop -- a full bar!! I couldnt believe it -- the lower i placed it, the better!

It kinda makes sense in that my car gets great reception in the driveway...

But now Im satellite-ing instead of internet-radio-ing!!!

Default Why not just use WiFi

Do you have wireless internet? Why not use the Wifi? I guess that the stations you wish to record are not available via the Internet stream?

I used the old antenna from my s50 home dock and it's working great.

Wish I had more ideas but I am a Stiletto newbie.

BEST of luck.
