Default cutting out

Anyone had any issues with their stilletto cutting out? My signal appears to be full and my libary plays fine, but it will not play the sound of a satellite reception.

Cutting out? Do you mean dropping reception? Losing the Signal?

This sticking thing is still doing it.

Here is what it is doing.

I'll be listening and out of the blue the sound will cut out when in satellite mode. I can switch it over to play from the library fine. Sometimes it will work for 3 or more hours, but other times it does it every 30 seconds. I have to turn it on and off to get it working again.

When it cuts out it appears to be recieving the channel still but its not because I try switching to another one and no luck.. AND its not the audio inputs because the library plays fine.

I think its the card dock but who knows...

Was that it Wi-Fi mode, 802.11B is known to have issues with microwaves. If so, can you move your access point away from the oven?

Since the sat frequencies are not too far away from the Wi-Fi range, it would make sense that the MW would cause issues. Glad you found the problem, happy listening.
