      Question Serious Sirius Problem?

      Suddenly after my wife took it on a trip, our 2015 XC-60 radio is only offering "pop" satellite channels 2-10,13-,17,63,65,70, and 158. NO sports, news, jazz, classical, etc. After about 5 calls to Sirius and numerous failed attempts to reset our radio, I finally got to someone who knew what was going on. There is a box attached to the radio called the Sirius module that must be reset. Sirius cannot reset it over the air because to do that the radio must be set to channel 184, which cannot be selected in it's current state! I was told that only the dealer can reset it, but it is now past warranty. Any comments, experience, or solution will be greatly appreciated.

      ???

      Thanks, but how do i do a RDAR or MOST upgrade? Is it dealer only or can an indy Volvo shop do it? I have an extended warranty from Steingold, but I think it has a deductible.

      I searched a bit and found this S80 thread:
      Thread: Disablling Sirius Satellite - Draining Battery.
      There is quite a lot of content there about RDAR, which means "Remote Digital Audio Receiver", and updating software to stop a problem whereby it drains the battery, even if you don't want or use Sirius. But our current problem is missing channels, as described above. Has anyone seen that problem and corrected it with a RDAR upgrade?
