Default Demo Mode for Stiletto

Like the S50, apparently now the Stiletto has a "Demo Mode" setting that allows the stiletto to become a self contained sales demo. Playing a multi-media advertisiment with sound and graphics.

I saw it playing on the Sirius Display counter at Best Buy.

Now the question.

Who knows how to turn this feature on and off?

I tried the same code as the s50, although I only tried in the home dock, In best buy it is in the car dock where it has a keypad to enter a code. In my trials, I used the remote with the home dock.

Anyone out there know the secret code?

Default Demo mode

As far as I know, the demo mode is a seperate unit. I went to Tweeter and asked if I could buy their demo unit since they were out of stock, and they said the demo unit does not contain any other functionality, it is built to be 100% demo unit. Maybe this is the same with the Stiletto?

That would make sense. I'm guessing it's probably a theft prevention issue. In case someone managed to get it out of the store display and take it home, it would never work as a live receiver.

Setup -> Device Settings -> Sirius ID. Then enter the code 7107
To turn off re-enter the code 7107

I was able to modify the demo's with my own. Here was that post.

I don't believe this. I played around with the one at best buy and it was not registered and had not received the channel download, but somehow after pressing a bunch of buttons, it did show up the activation channel 184. I'm sure there is either some demo firmware loaded or a some buttons you press in the device settings mode. There is the Demo folder on the CD that has an earlier version of the firmware. My guess is you load the demo firmware and press some series of buttons. Maybe Taylor from TSS (paintedantenna) might know.

I did send a PM to sracer5 who originally found it for the s50 on some radio shack paperwork. Maybe he might find out.

Anyway, I'm sure if we keep asking around someone will let us know.

No one ever figured out how to put it in demo mode, but I bet if you do the recovery procedure it will get out of it. Did you try that? Look at the sticky to get into recovery mode.

I bet TSS_Taylor might know how to get it in and out of demo mode as he sells these things. But he probably is sworn to Sirius Secrecy not to devulge this trick!

Press and hold Menu and Band buttons. I'm 90% certain that turns Demo Mode on and Off. Austin deals with that a lot, but he is on a cruise now.

Oops. Sorry, I just saw Me_Rubins post and assumed it was for a newer Starmate or Sportster. I would try holding one of the two of the four buttons. Probably the top two or the bottom two. I don't have one right now to try it out on.

Ok, I found out the official answer. I haven't been back here much since the server is ridiculously slow. Go into Settings, then Device, then Click on SID. Hold Display and it will go INTO demo mode.

To get it out of Demo Mode simply Hold Display.

Just tried it out and it works like a charm! You don't get any feedback or message to let you know that it is in the demo mode and it seems you need to hold the display key down for about 10-15 seconds. And to be a little more specific the prompt for SID is actually Sirius ID. So you select:Settings->Device->Sirius ID Then after it is in Demo mode it will not allow you to go back to select Settings or Recording and it prompts you to let you know that it is in demo mode and you cannot make this selection. If you hold the Display key down again it goes back into those normal mode. Somehow, I thought the demo mode kept it in the device tour mode, but mine does not seem to do this. Next time I'm in Best Buy I think I'l try this new trick out and un-do the demo mode of the display! Taylor, Thanks for your sirius wisdom!
