The only thing i would suggest would be to leave it on wifi and let it sit there. Go do something and come back if you can. I've seen numerous posts with this same problem. Every post ive seen the person has just had to let it sit there on wifi and eventually it starts to update. More than three or four people i've seen posted with this problem of shutting it off early then they post later saying it worked. They just had to be patient.( I know... I have no patience either with this stuff) I wouldnt sweat it.....................

Default Possible artist/song seek for S100?

I'm not sure if this used to happen before the update, but now, if you skip back to previous songs, then press the Heart button, instead of recording the song, it adds it to 'Favorites'. Is this new? What's Favorites? I can't find any settings or options in the Settings menu.

Does anybody know why there is no artist seek on the S100? It's one of the coolest (if not the coolest) features of the satellite radio.

The Stiletto can not "LOVE" from the buffer, so previously buffered songs are added to the Favorites, which you can access using the Yahoo Program included with your Stiletto. This is just an easy way to bookmark songs for potential purchase. To my knowledge it has always worked this way.

No artist seek was an RIAA concession there is thread after thread of this discussion, you can do a search and read about it. No it will not be added at a later date, unless XM loses their law suit.

Got the new unit this afternoon and updated it via a home dock this time. So far so good, but I'll wait a day or two before saying the problem was unit related and now resolved.

I think it will be added if XM WINS the suit.

Is FM transmitter strength something that can be adjusted through firmware updates? I swear before the update my car got little to no static (even without the FM relay cord), since the update, I now hear static pretty bad.

The 3 things I'd like to see on a priority list.

1. 128kb streaming from the Stiletto
2. Auto-dimming user configurable or at least the ability to turn it off.
3. Auto shut-down user configurable or at least the ability to turn it off.

what about the recorded songs or mp3's skipping on playback. i hoped this update would fix it but my recordings started skipping again today.

It isn't on my list of known fixes in the beginning of this thread, but I've also not experienced it since the upgrade. But then I always usually go to wifi for a few minutes to make sure the sat chipset has been turned off before listening to Library or Replays. I personally traced the skipping to the sat chipset being on. I can also verify that the issue of the sat chipset staying on in replay mode and Library mode has not been fixed in this update and this is probably why you are still experiencing the skipping.

The fact is there are a few on the forum that enjoy being able to listen to the Library while having scheduled recording record in the background via "LIVE" sat. But of course this is an undocumented feature and in fact an unsupported feature. I think before we are said and done to fix this issue, when listening to Replays, Library just as it is now with Wifi, the Sat Chipset will just be forced to be off. If there is some other algorithm they can come up with so that will not be the case then great.

I am once again working with them on this issue. One thing is that we'll have to live with it until the next update at this point. THere are basically two work arounds right now. Do a hard shut down and restart, but do not go into "LIVE" sat mode, go directly to Replays or Library. The other is to go into Wifi mode for a few minutes and let it log in and pick a channel. Once you do this it does indeed turn off the sat chipset.

Great keep us posted. Thus far it seems it was tuner specific because if it was ZAP specific all the S10 users would be having this issue and clearly that isn't the case.

I have an S10 and had the stutter and re-boot problem, the unit would not play in both the home dock or vehicle dock, telephone support was useless, had to return the unit for exchange, at this point my confidence in updates from sirius is suspect, it's obvious the bugs have not been worked out, I will not update the new unit until this issue is addressed and resolved.

Well if everyone was having that issue I'd say you are right, but clearly 99.9% of those that have updated have had no issues whatsoever, but have seen an awful lot of good from the update. Why would you want to not update, it is better to find out now if the tuner you have is defective than to wait till later. Seems to me with the issues you were having that was the case. Your logic doesn't make sense.

So far so good?

I did have one freeze this afternoon, but this was after running for several hours and had different symptoms. It was more like the earlier occasional problem reported with the 100 when you change channels it froze once and you had the pull the battery to reboot. Not the same symptoms so I am hoping it was a one off and that my other problem was clearly unit related.

I listen to Stern everyday. Get in my car at 7am. I listen to the previously recorded 6am hour , (VIA THE LIBRARY) while my Stiletto is in the car dock recording the rest of the show. So you are saying , listening to the library while recording the rest of the show is an undocumented and unsupported feature? Can this be ablity be taken away? If so, I will NEVER update my firmware again.

Is my unit defective or is the update problematic? How many times do I run back to my retailer for exchange only to potentialy find that the provided update wasn't comepletly worked out. How lucky do I feel???
