Thanks. I have a KTC-sr902 And a kenwood head unit kdc-mpv5025Hi Jojo. I've looked around a bit and there's still no clear cut answer on what people with older tuners that predate Best of XM need to do if they arent receiving some of these swapped channels. My guess is similar to some of the previous suggestions, which is your tuner may not be capable of working on channel 161.
We will get in contact with SiriusXM and try to clarify this.
thanks.......I might even consider an KTC-sr903So I've found out a more official answer. Your radio is simply too old to get those channels. Bandepart is the only channel that these old radios once could receive but now no longer can. If you are die hard on listening to that channel you'd have to upgrade to a Kenwood Translator and SCC1 or maybe even the SIR-KEN1 would solve it. But not positive on the SIR-KEN1 since those are fairly old.
AFAIK, they are not doing lifetime contracts to anyone who calls in and asks for one. Those plans were $300 or $400 back in 2005/06 and slowly went up before disappearing. I have a feeling that once someone uses up all three swaps, they'd have to go into a then-current plan.I bought the items in Aug 2013 and just sat on it due to people saying how bad customer services was.
I really feel they can't get rid of the lifetime contracts due to technology issues.
Their corporate seemed to agree with me.
I've had a lifetime contract since 2006.
