Yes, it works I've seen all my teams come up. The sports ticker doesn't work like the S50. It just pops up the scores as they change for about 10 seconds. So if you aren't looking you want see it.

Yes it works. It only comes on when the games are actually being played.

In an effort not to start another thread with problems centered around the game zone, I actually have a different problem.


My radio has to be on for a good amount of time to update the game zone and even then a lot of time the game zone list is incomplete. For example, when there are 6 or 8 1pm games being played if I turn my radio on at 1pm, I won't see anythign in my game zone until maybe 1.05 or 1.10 and even then it may only be 2 or 3 of the games. Then, about 5 minutes later, the rest of the games will show up listed. And sometimes, it seems to list one or two of the games three or four times. An example would be that if the Raiders were playing the Steelers, it would list that particular game 4 times as I scroll down through the game zone.

Does this ever happen to anyone else? it happens a good amount of the time, almost every sunday.

Yes, I've had some of your problems, but not the listing of a game four times. I think its just a function of the radio downloading data. Just as when you turn on the radio and it takes a minute or so to have all the channels updated with the current program listed. I have a feeling the "game zone" is one of the last "channels" updated. It usually gets there, but it does sometimes take a couple of minutes.

Yes it takes a little time, to get the data downloaded. I've never seen 4 listings for a single game. I have seen two, because one is the home broadcast and one is the away broadcast. So, you can hear the announcers for each team.

I think the time necessary to get the data is totally normal. So, I cut it on 5 minutes before the games are to start. Most of the time when games are on, mine has been on for while anway, so I don't see this as a real issue, maybe a bit of an annoyance, but that is the nature of the beast.

I had one of the Jensen XR9 XM tuners and it erased the channels mapping each time you turned off the radio, so you had to wait two or three minutes sometimes before you could even switch channels. Now that would be a much bigger pain in the rear end.

I would change the work Little to LONG when you are waiting to find out what channel your game is on. Seems like at least 5 minutes. Especially while you know you are missing the game.

I've never had the game alert go off on mine either (that I know of). I assume it's similar to my Streamer GTR in that it will beep and then allow me to select the game? Or is it simply visual like the ticker? The games show up in my game zone, but just no alert.

Thoughts?

I'm with Mike... if I'm on the go and can't find my NFL game I freak...If you scan through channels 123 - 158 you will find the game you want without waiting for the channel guide to update... (for 5 mins.)
