Rec Radio Sirius - no sound on 184 and can't activate

Hi All,

first post here so thanks to all in advance for any info you can share. I have a 2007 WK Overland with REC radio and factory Sirius, but cannot get it to activate and have tried everything short of replacing the REC. The SAT tab displays, but does not respond to volume or channel changes. Disconnected the rear SAT module and the head unit removed the SAT tab, when I plugged it back in SAT tab came back and system showed "channels updating" so I know the REC is seeing and acknowledging the SAT module.

We've tried activating the radio with Sirius Tech support - the door open and closed key in key out thing
I've replaced the Sirius Module in the rear quarter with a known working module
I've replaced the antenna and cable with a known working antenna

Still no sound on 184 and not able to activate. I've even tried to install the PAC aux-in adapter from Crutchfield that emulates the VES system but allows Aux in. The VES tab displays once the PAC is installed but still no sound.

Is this REC system fried or do I need the dealer to update software or enable something for the SAT or VES to fully work?

Thanks to all!
