Roady XT quit working

Kinda sounds fried to me.
I don't know about the features on a Roady, but I have a Starmate that has the 45 min buffer and ala carte channels. Love it, love it, love it! Might be something to look at.

Thanks, Legend, you could be right. But, two Roady's going out the same day? Bought at different times? I still am not convinced they are fried.

Sorry, thought Roady did not work in 2 different in locations, not that 2 Roady's were acting up.
I'd think XM CSR and tech support would really want to look at an auth problem or an account issue.

It's okay. It's both. Two Roadys, two cradles (docks). They don't work in my car or my house. Have you ever had to deal with XM customer support? It's pitiful. They answer questions you don't ask.
I guess I'll try signing up and then canceling if I have to.
Thanks again for responding to me.

If you have had it unplug for "a few months" it will lock-up. Do you get programing on channel 1 if no it's history. Had it happen to me during there free listening weekend. Go to www.Siriusxm.com do a resent signal and see if that helps. Did not work had to get a new radio. Got a good deal at Best Buy.

I can't get it to do anything. So, no channel 1. It wasn't unplugged when it quit working. The other radio was, though. Would having the signal resent do any good if I don't a current subscription?
I've heard of it happening to others during the free weekend. That's what's so fishy.
I found a cheap one and will order it probably. I guess it can't hurt to try to have the signal resent without a subscription. What could it hurt?
Thanks for the idea.

Tried to have the signal resent. No dice. i guess I will get a new radio. If it doesn't work, I guess I will just have to throw parts at it. Grrrr!
