This new Sporster Replay is not as good as the radio it replaced

 

Two years ago I purchased a Sirius Sporster radio when I signed up with Sirius.  This radio opperated as advertised.  No problems with reception and seldom did it lose connection with the satilite.  AFter a short two years that radio stopped working. ...

Dead sirius

 

Ahhh radio without commercials...every commuter's dream, right? The concept is absolutely great and I love everything about sirius itself. This receiver? There is good and bad, but first let me give you some general info on features:

sleek design, preset channels, memory capability, easy to read display, easy installation

unavailability of parts when they break, has problems detecting the antenna, randomly

Don't Buy this

 

I have had sirius radio since Howard Stern came over. I have listened to it in my car and at home at least 4 hours per day since I got it. I originally had the original Sportser 1. I was very happy with it, never had any problems, except I wanted to be...

Artist Seek Alert, Smaller, Stylish Looking

FM transmitter not integrated and is weak, Car Adaptor sucks, older Sportster is better

Satellite Radio is outta this world, but Sportster is less than a stellar product

 

You may seriously question my opinions and taste when I tell you I am a huge Howard Stern fan. Sorry! As such, I became a member of the Sirius Satellite family in January 2007.

Cool features

Quality? Not so much

Awful reception

 

I received the sportster 4 as a gift for the holidays; a replacement for an old-school starmate that I had for a couple of years. The reception (on my car radio) was so bad that I assumed the radio was defective and returned it. Sirius messed up the...

Radio looks nice, big screen, sleek, nice docking system

Simply: it does not work as advertised, not even close

Cut out the static!

 

I purchased this Sirius radio for my husband as a birthday present because he loves to listen to his college football team on the radio. Depending on where we are driving, sometimes the static would drive me insane. I chose Sirius because they carried...

Specialty programming and variety in remote locations

Monthly fee, hard to see the screen in bright light

Small sleek unit compared to others

 

I got this unit back in early Sept 06 when my XM Sky Fi Delphi 2 got stolen at the mall when I parked there to attend a Yankee game. I had bought this off of eBay and had it installed at Circuit City (Middletown NY). They did a good job there with the...

the worst experience ever!

 

I purchased this unit and subscribed to Sirius in December and was moderately happy for almost a month. While my radio worked, I noticed a great many "overplayed" songs. The stations tend to play the same 20 or so songs over and over again. Then my...

the radio looks very nice compared to others

unreliable, terrible customer service

Great except FM transmitter

 

I have an older Sirius radio that works great with FM transmission. I bought the Sportster for a new car. The features are great, but the FM transmission is much too weak to be worthwhile. I thought there was something wrong with the radio, and...

Great features (especially memory feature). Ease of use

FM transmission too weak to be functional

Sportster 4 ok

 

First off - the unit is fantastic. Sirius did a good job with it. However, the fm modulator is complete trash. If you do not hard wire your unit to an auxillary port (front or back of your car stereo) it WILL NOT get reception. I roll down the street...

Buttons work well, durable product, lights up perfectly. Easy to navigate stations

It's not plug and play. Reception is completely unusable with the fm modulator

Product Specifications

Now you you can keep up with all of the great play-by-play action on SIRIUS with the Sportster Replay SP4-TK1 plug-and-play satellite radio. It lets you pause and rewind live broadcasts, so you'll never miss a second of the big game. It also has some great features that'll enhance coverage of your favorite teams, and it delivers the rest of SIRIUS's peerless entertainment options. To make sure you're on top of your favorite teams, program Game Alert to let you know whenever your favorite NFL, NBA, NHL, and college team is about to take the field. With NFL broadcasts, you can even choose whether you want to listen to the home or away announcers. The SP4-TK1 automatically records the last 44 minutes of the channel you're listening to. Just hit the Rewind button to get an instant replay of the game-winning touchdown, or press Pause if, say, you're interrupted by a phone call. The 44-minute memory clears every time you change the channel or turn the SP4-TK1 off. And if you're driving to a game, you can program the front-panel Jump button to go directly to your SIRIUS traffic and weather channel to get traffic updates. Features a suction-cup mount that'll attach to any reasonably flat glass surface. Its auxiliary input lets you connect and play your portable MP3 player. A car power adapter and a roof-mount antenna round out the package.
