Broken SkiFi vs New SkiFi 2? Direct Replacement? Please advise-Thanks

I have a Delphi SkiFi XM Receiver and it got broken. Can I use all my cradles/boombox/power supplies if I buy a SkiFi 2?

What is the basic difference between them?

Thanks,

Dutch

    Could you please explain more about the built in FM modulator? Do I set the XM receiver to a blank radio station on my car stereo like the external modulator I use requires?



    Can I leave the programmed station the same or must I change often due to interference being recived via geographical vehicle location?



    Also, is the built in modulator output more a powerful modulator than an external one?



    The external modulator I currently use often has noise and fades in and out. When I use the cassett tape the audio output quality is great but I hate the hanging wire.



    Thanks - Dutch

The original SkyFi's display was quite difficult to see in the sunlight. The glare was too much. The new unit's display is a different material, and sunken in to alleviate the problem of glare.
The SkyFi2 also has TuneSelect. It was the first receiver to allow the user to enter the artist information for memory. Other units with TuneSelect only allowed song titles.
It also added a 3rd bank of presets, allowing for 30 presets instead of the original's 20 presets. SkyFi2 added the option of a stock ticker, or sports score ticker in the display. The original SkyFi's option of 3 different displays included the channel number only, to be displayed. Also, there is a built in FM modulator so you can set the tune on the reciever... and yes you will be able to use all of your accessories.

The light that illuminates the main portion of my radio has gone out and I am unable to view the screen. is there a fix for this or will I need to purchase a new unit?


You can buy a new LCD from eBay. The problem is cause by the backlight cable breaking because Delphi folds it behind the LCD in manufacturing. If you know how to solder, you can solder a wire in place of the broken flat cable to fix it.

I have a XM Model 136-4335. I need an operators manual. I need to program preset stations and don't know how. Thanks, Mike


The XM model number provided is branded DELPHI but is actually made by AUDIOVOX... a manufacturer that is commonly rebranded XM, TERK, RCA, etc. So the Audiovox manual is what you need. Now since Audiovox usually doesnt support directly its hard to get manual from them directly. The link to your manual (the third down on this page and the picture looks a bit diffferent but is the silver receiver not black box ones) Good luck

The remote does not turn on the Delphi XM Xpress on car unit


This problem is caused due to the fact that xm has designed there radios to completely shut off all power with the unit therefore the unit once off will not be able to recieve information from the remote. This manufacturing defect was confirmed by the xm representative, they also explained that the company is currently planning to fix this issue on the new 2009 model xpress rc

Interesting.  There is a thing called impedance matching.  If the speakers input Imped. doesn't match the SkyFi's Output imped. you can overload it.  Sort of the electrical analogy to drinking from a firehose.  Try charging it and using it on a regular line level input for, like, a stereo.

Delphi XM SkyFi 2 problem


Sounds like an overheating issue...try attaching a heat sink or attach it to the grill of your air conditioner and see if the problem goes away.
