SiriusConnect™ SCH2P Home Pro Tuner Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The SIRIUS Satellite Radio SCH2P Home Tuner includes an outdoor antenna, 2-way splitter, audio cable, and rack mounting hardware. The SiriusConnect SCH2P satellite radio tuner allows you to receive, control, and play SIRIUS satellite programming from your SIRIUS-ready or SAT Radio-ready home receiver. Its also compatible with home receivers that feature an RS-232 port or Infrared input.
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: This SiriusConnect tuner can be connected to your audio system using either the SiriusConnect DIN port, the RS-232 port, or by using the infrared connector. RS-232 and IR connection will also require an analog stereo RCA output or optical digital output.
- 8-Pin DIN (SiriusConnect): This connection is typically used for SIRIUS-ready or SAT Radio-ready receivers. This connection provides control and audio transfer.
- RS-232: This control connection is typically used by high-end multi-room audio/video receivers. You will also need to connect either the analog RCA output or optical digital output to your A/V receiver.
- Infrared (3.5mm): This connection is typically used in older receivers which use an IR blaster to control the SIRIUS tuner. Instead of using the IR blaster, the IR signal can be hard-wired directly into this 3.5mm connection. This type of connection only supports one-way control with no metadata feedback available. You will also need to connect either the analog RCA output or optical digital output to your A/V receiver.
Display: The SIRIUS SCH2P SiriusConnect home tuner features blue front-panel display. The unit's display provides channel number, standby indicator, satellite signal strength meter and terrestrial signal strength meter.
Controls: The SIRIUS SCH2P SiriusConnect home tuner features a front-panel rotary knob for changing SIRIUS satellite radio channels. There is also a On/Off switch on the rear-panel of the home tuner. In addition, there is a control switch to select between RS232, 8-PIN DIN, or Infrared connection.
Connections: The SiriusConnect SCH2P home tuner features an F-type threaded coax antenna connector, stereo RCA output, optical digital output, RS232 port, 8-PIN connector, and a 3.5mm IR input on the rear-panel.
Outdoor Antenna: The SiriusConnect home tuner comes with an outdoor antenna and mounting hardware to mount the antenna outdoors to a wall, roof, or mast. The antenna features an adjustable arm to angle the antenna for better reception. The antenna connects to the SiriusConnect home tuner via an RG-6 cable (up to 150-feet, the RG-6 cable is not provided). The SCH2P also includes a 2-way splitter if you are going to install more than one tuner to the outdoor antenna.
Rack Mountable: The SCH2P SiriusConnect home tuner comes with rack mounting hardware to install the unit in your rack system. The unit also features 4 rubber feet so you can place securely on a shelf or other flat surface.
Power Supply: The SCH2P operates off of standard household current. The unit comes with a 6.0' detachable AC power cord to plug into a wall-outlet.

I do not know for sure. I have a Marantz receiver that is "Sirius ready" and connected the SCH2P Tuner to it using the 8-PIN DIN port. I am looking through the SCH2P manual. According to it, you may be able to use the Infrared (IR) output connector on the SCH2P and the IR connector of your receiver and then use RCA outputs on the SCH2P for audio. I hope this helps. Have you tried downloading the manual for the SCH2P? The connection info. is on Pages 26 & 27. [ KEN Jan 05, 2014 ]
It's been a while that I installed this unit, if I remember correctly it has a line output presented with RCA type connectors. Very simple and easy to install but yes, you will need an amp (either pre-amp, integrated or otherwise). [ DOUG Jan 04, 2014 ]
