    Needed to change receiver UGH !!

    We are way down south outside normal reception areas. With a large antenna we got reasonable reception which we lost for an hour each day on our old sporster SP-R2R.
    Sadly this crapped out and we have bought Sirius/XM XDPIV2. No reception at all on this new machine. Signal strength meter shows nothing !
    I have not kept abreast of the changes when Sirius and XM got together. Do the machines have the same specs. Have we bought a replacement that just wont work down here ?
    Thanks for any help

    Are you using the same antenna that you used on the old SP-R2R? Is it compatible?

    Are you sure the issue isn't the antenna? Have you tried using the new one that came with the new receiver?
