Overview: The SIRIUS SC-H1 satellite radio tuner allows you
to receive, control, and play SIRIUS satellite programming for your SIRIUS-ready
or SAT Radio-ready home receiver. It is not for stand-alone use; it has no controls
SIRIUS Satellite Radio: SIRIUS Satellite Radio has over 120
channels of entertainment and music. In addition to the more than 65 original
channels of commercial-free, SIRIUS offers more than 55 channels of sports, news,
and entertainment. SIRIUS 1st Traffic and Weather also provides continuous local
weather and traffic reports for 20 major U.S. cities. A subscription is required
to enjoy SIRIUS Satellite Radio programming.
Compatibility: The SIRIUS SC-H1 SiriusConnect tuner is compatible
with select SIRIUS-ready and SAT Radio-ready home AV receivers. SIRIUS-ready receivers
must have the SiriusConnect 8-pin DIN connection to be compatible.
Audio and Power Connections: The SC-H1 can be powered in one of
two ways. In some cases, the SIRIUS-ready or SAT Radio-ready home receiver provides
power to the tuner through the supplied 8-pin DIN cable. If the receiver does not
provide power via the DIN cable, the supplied AC adapter can be used to power the
tuner. Likewise, if the receiver does not support the audio input via the DIN cable
connection, the audio output may be connected to the sound system via an RCA patch
cord (not supplied) or optical digital cable (not supplied). The antenna input
is a male SMB Jack, compatible with the included antenna, or a dedicated outdoor
antenna installation kit having a female SMB Plug on the antenna cable.
Indicator Light: The SC-H1 has an indicator light on one end
to provide basic status information about the tuner:
- Steady Red: initial power-on indication
- Flashing Red: indicates that the antenna
is not connected to the tuner
- Steady Amber: indicates that the antenna
is connected to the tuner, but no signal is being received
- Steady Green: indicates that the tuner
is functioning properly and receiving a good signal
Wall Mounting: The tuner can be mounted on a wall, or on a
vertical panel of an equipment cabinet, using two #10 screws. Two slots, spaced
1-1/4" apart on the bottom of the tuner, will accommodate the screws.
