Default Soloist Remote Behavior

My remote used to work that I'd push buttons, say "1 - 8" and I'd get channel 18. Somehow I changed it so that the buttons now go to my presets instead. Can someone please tell me how to get it back the other way? If I want to go to a channel that isn't a preset, I have to hit "menu", select "satellite radio", then select the category "rock", then find the channel. That's too much button pushing for me! I want to go back to where the numbers acted like numbers, not presets.

Thanks!

Ah... The magic missing Tune Button. There is nothing you can do. The soloist remote is missing the Tune button. If you have a car or home dock you can use that remote and press the tune button then it will work. Also if you have an old s50 remote I think it is the channel up button works as the tune button. Once you get it back into the tune mode, you can use your soloist remote to directly enter the channel number.

I remember a post where they were able to use some other TV remote to get it in that mode too.

This too was one of the reasons I returned my soloist.

Well that's not good news. I don't have any of those things you mentioned. Guess I'm S.O.L.

I wonder how I got it in this preset mode.

No one knows, It's like it starts out in that mode and once you do something it goes to preset mode. Maybe you can buy a remote on ebay or find a new car dock or home dock remote. They work for about all the functions except the clock functions. Call Taylor at TSS Radio he might sell you an old s50 remote.

I ended up getting a home dock with a new clock radio that had an aux input. This gave me the sleep timer and a better display. The clock on the soloist was too small and I did not like the brightness control. Those where the reasons I did not like this.
