    Same problem here with my sony head unit. This happened once before, I took it back to Circuit City (who originally installed) and they said it was common for this to happen a few time. The techie reset something and it worked again. I asked him if he could show me how to do it so I don't have to make special trips to Circuit City, he simply said it was too complicated to explain. Now it happened again and CC is going out of business. Still don't know what to look for.

    My problem is similar and oddly enough has occured within the last week or so. I don't have XM Direct. I have an older sony tuner, connected to an xm ready sony receiver. it's worked fine for the 4 years that i've had it and all of a sudden one day....nothing. the display just reads no signal. i've messed with the wires and cannot get it to come back on. oddly enough if i turn my receiver off and then back on, i get signal and sound for like 30 minutes some times but it will eventually go away back to no signal. xm says the tuner is fried and i need a new one...

Resetting the head unit will make it look for anything that is connected to it recently or even already is for a long time. Make sure your head unit's memory cable is constant power (direct to battery) to retain in its memory that the xmdirect2 unit is already connected. There must be a loose cable when it is not recognized as a source like the power cable from the adapter which should be on constant power. You should hear a click sound on the xmdirect2 module whenever you turn to xm source on the radio. The CC tech that was actually solved the problem by chance if he couldn't explain this to you. Loosing signal is different

Yeah use sirius radio service. Prolly a reason that it isn't running it anymore because Xm and Sirius merged company's. So Sirius is the same as Xm now.

Downloading instructions Delphi SKYFi3 unit


You can't download Xm programming, like you can from itunes, where you get a song in 3 or 4 seconds.  
Do you mean record music? You must record realtime, either while listening or while the unit is idle in its cradle.
It's easy. while listening to the radio in the cradle (press mode repeatedly to get to Live XM mode), then press the center (play/pause) button.  the menu will pop-up, select Record.  It will give you the option for Song, Channel, and Session.  Just chose one of the first two and press the button.  You should see a microphone appear at the top of the screen.  It's recording.  Follow the same steps to stop the recording.  Setting up a recording session is self-explanatory once you get into that screen.

XM Direct 2


On the adapter cable if there is a separate cable for power connect the positive directly to battery power as opposed to ignition. The memory resides on the xmdirect2 module not on the head unit.

MyFi FM Modulator Stopped Working?


hi there..there are few ways on installing xm into your car..you can use the FM Modulation that you're doing before..it goes like this...make sure that you're xm radio is turn off( with all the wirings unplug).....then, you just have to go on a blank channel(e.g 90.1) on your car radio...afterwhich, turn on your xm radio and go to MENU....and look for FM settings...and select the same frequency you have into your car radio...and just have to wait for 5 to 8 secs and you should be getting the prev. channels.....
IF: you're only getting prev. channels such as 1, 130 etc...you just have to call xm to send a refresh signal OR you can go to www.refresh.xmradio.com if you want to save more time...just type in your 8 digit radio I.D....


IF:
you're not getting the FM settings.....you just have to click the MENU and select the 'default settings/factory settings' then turn off/on your radio to save the changes...

i'm sure it'll work nowq at this time....Godbless!

Roady XT Transmitter problem


Mine is doing the same as well. Been working for 1 year. Now it starts cutting out while listening. I noticed if it is broadcasting the fm frequency menu is there. The minute it cuts out I press Menu and that menu item is gone. It comes back once the radio starts working again. Mine is 1 year old. I got it Christmas of 2006. I do know that if you have it directly connected then this menu item will not appear and that is by design. I think my xm roady xt has gone bad.

No XM Audio, no fault indication


Buss cable is plugged into the wrong connector on the GEX-P920XM. The installation manual is not clearly written, the figure in the manual is correct.
