Q: What do I need to use my TTR1?
A: In order to use the TTR1, you'll need a logon and password for a SiriusXM Internet Radio (SXIR) account and access to a high-speed wired or wireless Internet connection. Your Internet service must provide data at 128 kbps or more. (Most DSL and cable modem services provide more than ten times this minimum necessary level of performance.) If the wireless network is secure, you will need the SSID and password. Note: You will only need to enter your SXIR username and password the first time you logon.
Q: What is a Wi-Fi password?
A: A Wi-Fi password is an optional feature that is used to secure your wireless home network and encrypt communication so only authorized devices can see it. If your Wi-Fi router was set up with encryption turned on, then anyone connecting needs this password. The password for the TTR1 will be the same password that used for connecting a laptop to your network. If you don't know the password, see your router's setup instructions or ask the person who set up your network. TTR1 supports three encryption modes (WEP, WPA and WPA2 security) and needs to be configured to use the same mode as your router.
Q: How can I tell if my wireless network is working?
A: If you have a laptop connected to the wireless network, make sure you can browse the Internet. Using the TTR1 Network Wizard to scan for your network's name (SSID) and use the TUNE knob to select it. (Note if the SSID is not broadcast you will need to know what it is and enter it.) Finally, push MENU > System Setup > Software Update > Check Now. If you get the message "Software up to date" or "New version available", then you are connected to the Internet. If you get the message "Login failed" you don’t have connection to the Internet.
Q: I am connected to my Wi-Fi network. How do I receive SIR programming?
A: First, make sure that you have entered your SIR username and password in the SiriusXM Setup menu. Then, turn on the TTR1, push the menu button and select SiriusXM. Select a category and channel to listen.

Q: What should I do if my TTR1 displays "HTTP Error"?
A: This indicates a network problem. To fix this problem, unplug the TTR1 from the wall outlet, wait 20 seconds, and then plug it back in.
Q: What does it mean when I see "buffering" on the TTR1 display?
A: Buffering means that the TTR1 needs to receive more data from the network. Typically, it will clear and the TTR1 will start playing after a few seconds. This may happen from time to time depending on the amount of network traffic accessing the Internet. If the "buffering" message appears on the TTR1and remains for more than a minute, turn the TTR1 off and on again. If the message remains on the display, it could be due to a weak wireless signal. Try moving the TTR1 closer to the Wi-Fi access point until the signal strength indicator on the lower-right corner of the TTR1 display steadily shows three bars.
Q: What does it mean when I receive the message "Login failed"?
A: Your user name and password may be wrong or invalid or you may not be subscribed to PREMIUM SXIR service. Check your account online at or by calling SiriusXM Customer Care at (888) 539-7474. Note: You should only need to login the first time you access SXIR service.
Q: What does it mean when I see "Failed to Connect" on the TTR1 display?
A: You are not successfully connected to your high-speed wired or wireless network. Verify the network information and try again. It may be necessary to move the TTR1 closer to your wireless access point to receive a stronger signal.
Q: What does it mean when I see "Stream Closed" on the TTR1 display?
A: This usually means that your PSXIR account credentials (username & password) are being used by another device or for online PC listening. Each subscription allows you to listen to SXIR on one device at a time. Alternatively, after a long period of inactivity on the TTR1, the connection may time-out. Turn the radio off and on again and it will reconnect. To prevent this kind of time-out, periodically adjust the volume or any other control.
