To make a long story short, Sirius determined (after many calls and many weeks) that my home docking station was faulty. I was sent a new one.
My Sportster works fine in my car (not connected to the radio).
My home docking station gets a signal I just can't get it on the radio (I've even tried my old radio that it worked well on).
I have the antenna pointed east and I live in Whistler.
Any help would be appreciated.

Is your question on how to get the music from the sportster to the radio, or how to get enough of sirius' signal for the sportster?

How to get the music to the radio. The docking station always sat beside the radio and worked and now it doesn't pick up.
Are you trying to transmit to the radio using the FM Modulator?
I thought the FM modulators in new Sirius Radios were deactivated when placed in the home docks?

What is the FM Modulator? I'm not sure I understand.
Thanks for your help.

There might be a volume setting in the Sportster for setting the master volume. It would be inside of some menu (unfortunately I do not have a Sportster). It could be set really low.
Also, can you double check that you are on the right FM frequency (I think it defaults to 88.5) on both the Sportster and the radio.

The sirius receiver,no matter what frequency, ill not overide any local station. The only volume control is on the actual radio.

True. But I am worried you are looking for the sound on 88.5 when the internal FM modulator is sending out a signal on 107.9 instead.

Problem fixed.... I hardwired from audio out on the docking station to aux. in of radio. Thanks for your help. Now why couldn't Sirius help desk tell me this?
