    Hi all,

    Ive just discovered this new space. Looks great. :yesshake:

    I have a very old question. Originally, units bought in Canada were problematic to register on a grey US sub. So, I bought a couple of units in the US and sub'd on Sirius US.

    Im looking at getting a new Sportster 5 at Futureshop in Ontario ($100Cdn) rather than buying on in the US ($150US+) but I want to know if a unit bought in Canada can be registered to a US sub.

    This was a huge issue a few years ago and we determined they were incompatable because of some internal chip or whatever. Is this still the case? Anyone here actually recently bought a unit in Canada and registered it to your US (grey) sub?

    Thanks!!

    I bought my SL2 from FutureShop in Toronto and subed to the US service. I don't see why other radios would not work.
