Recent problems recieving XM in truck
Posted 26 November 2008 - 09:12 AM
Now it seems every time I pass under a bridge or any type of momentary overhead obstruction I get loss of signal for a second or two. When I first starting using XM in the truck I could get the signal even parked under my metal carport, now I get no signal at all.
Is anyone else having problems like I'm experiencing?

I get about 7 dropouts on the way to work every morning because there are no terrestrial repeaters in my area.
Equipment includes a buncha stuff that I no longer have interest in detailing

Glad you got things fixed. And I'm sorry I started to mention that to you, but I guess I got distracted and never made it back to this thread. DBSTalk is so large with so much information sometimes I think I go into mind overload here But some people might not think I have a mind to overload and they may be right
Update: XM tech support resolved the problem. They directed me to w w w.xmradio.com/refresh/index.xmc, and asked me to follow the directions. I now have excellent reception again!

I think the Sat. sends down a new signal to "refresh" the radio. But not being a big tech person myself, I'm sure someone can give you a better answer.
What does that do, download new firmware or something?
