I hooked up my stock sirius to my RNS-E it works, sound comes out. However, where it is suppose show me the sirius number, nothing shows up, only says to contact Audi. Also I have a subscription to Siruis already, subscription was with my Symphony II.

The first generation SAT receivers do not work with the RNS-E. You can hear the sound from the last station selected but you cannot change the station, not even to the preview station or the station which displays the serial number.

You will need to unregister your receiver while it's connected to the Symphony (otherwise you will have problems to register it again once you sell it). Then you will need to get a SAT receiver with the index letter "D" for Sirius or 'E" for XM.

I also had about 18 stations when I first installed it. I think they are just teasers. I wonder how long they stay active before you must purchase. The funny thing is. I got Sirius for Howard Stern and his station was one of the samplers.

May I should have waited before paying for a subscription.

:arrow: If it says to contact Audi that means that your tuner is not properly connected.

:arrow: If you see preview channel and rest is blocked that means that your receiver is not activated. You need to read your tuner ID on the nav screen and call Sirius to activate

:arrow: If you hear some stations but can't change it, that means that you have tuner which is not compatible with RNS-E

Could this also be caused by a properly connected sirius tuner, but having the RNS-E not properly coded to enable SAT radio?

Yup. 18 is what I have. I don't care if they are teasers. Until they shut them off, I won't pay the subscription fee. FYI - Stern has two stations; 100 and 101. You get 101 for free (at least I do)....but 100 is the one where he transmits live broadcasts everyday.

Either way, I paid about $350 in parts, connectors etc to get Sirius hooked up to my RNS-E....and one of these days, I'll subcribe for the full amount and take advantage of all the other stations. :)
