The satellite audio and video signals, A, V, received by the vehicular entertainment module 10, 100, 200 may be broadcast in any desirable band, such as, for example, the 2320-2345 MHz frequency band, which is the SDARS band. Accordingly, the satellite audio signals, A, may include any desirable programming, such as music, talk radio, and the like. User interface information associated with the satellite audio signals, A, such as station numbers, artist name, and the like is typically transmitted with the satellite audio signal, A, for representation on a user interface screen. The satellite video signals, V, may include any desirable video information, such as television programming, movies, video games, navigation information (e.g., maps), graphical representations (e.g., stock information), and the like. The satellite video signals, V, may be received by the receiver 22 and decoded by the audio and video data decoder 24 for output over the video screen 28, or, alternatively, the satellite video signals, V, may be downloaded into the hard drive/memory 32 for decoding and output at a desired time.
