    I have the same problem and it has been approx the same amount of years since i bought the skifi2 unit at Circuit City, of course they are not help now..... When I called XM I asked if the skifi2 has a life span that they know about, because it would start to load channels and then go blank. Their reply was "Would you like to upgrade today and add an additional radio in your house for $$$???" and "Would you like to pay 12 months in advance and save Blah blah blah??" NO, I want my radio to work and please answer my question!!! .....bottom line, the people answering the phones cannot help if it is not written on their cue-cards. I also emailed them on their website, I never got a response. I recommend everyone with this problem send at least one email per day until they answer our question.....they could put the answer up on their website...........too simple.

I understand that you're only getting preview channels..and had the radio for almost 3 years....yes, they might be correct that your radio was broken already...but, have you ever asked them to refresh the signal into your radio? If you want you can do it online at www.refresh.xmradio.com all you to do is to key in your 8-digit radio i.d(can be found on ch. 0) then click submit...it'll give u the activation instructions...that u need to follow faithfully..if this won't work..i'll get back to you next week..Godbless!

Your radio is working if you get the preview channels. If you're not getting the rest, you haven't paid your bill.

Delphi skyfi2 Xm Radio Receiver car connection


Yes, you can buy an FM Direct adapter that will allow you to transmit directly to your car FM tuner, but if you have an older SkyFi2, the Fm transmitter is so strong, you can sit the radio on the floor and tune your car radio to your preset XM channel, like 107.1 FM and it will work great. Go into "Menu" and pick a channel that's not used locally.

The problem is a bad tuner. Very common problem in XM and Sirius tuners. New models do not have this issue, they are built by DEI and very reliable. You can purchase a rebuilt tuner for around 50 and it will not have the same problem again. Hope this helps, check EBAY for rebuilt tuners.

Delphi Shyfi XM radio only picks up certain channels in the car cradle but picks up all of them on the Boombox. Why?


XM actually uses 2 sets of transmitters on each satellite, so it is possible you need to adjust your antenna to get the rest of the channels in the car cradle.

No signal problem on xm home satilite docking staion


You have probably lost a local repeater. Try moving it temporarily to a south-facing window. Here's another one to try: Put in dock and turn off with button on unit. wait 10 seconds, now press "2" "0" "7" "XM" buttons one at a time in that order ON THE FRONT of your SkyFi2 and the radio will go ON by itself! Now, press "Display" 4 times. You will see a screen that says "SAT1", "SAT2" and "TERR". You need a constant checkmark for DEMOD on at least one of the 3 boxes. Please tell me which ones are checkmarked and the average "BER%" number is. The lower the BER% number, the better. If BERis 100%, you are out of luck. Write back and let me know what you read. Press "Display" 5 more times to go back to regular screen. Thanks,
John

Have SkyiFi 2 and use with cassette adapter - but, want to use in other dar


From the XM user's manual, page 14.

1. Make sure your SKYFi2 is turned off. Unplug any accessory from SKYFi2’s audio jack.
2. Turn on an FM radio and place it close to your SKYFi2.
3. Tune the FM radio to each of the following FM frequencies: 88.1, 88.3, 88.5, 88.7, 88.9, 106.7, 106.9, 107.1, 107.3, 107.5, 107.7, and 107.9.
4. Note the frequency that has no FM station or the least amount of interference.
5. Turn on your SKYFi2.
6. Press the “menu” button.
7. Use the scroll wheel to select “FM Frequency.” Press the “XM” button to confirm.
8. Use the scroll wheel to select the frequency noted in step 4. Press the “XM” button to confirm.
9. Press the “menu” button to return to the main menu and then again to return to the play screen.
10. You should now hear XM programming over your FM radio. If the sound is not clear or you hear
interference or static, try another frequency by repeating the process above.
