Question about Sirius Satellite Radio Receiver

1 Answer

Cannot set fm frequency on radio

I have found an FM frequency on my car radio that is not being used.
I cannot get it to show up on my stratus 5 satellite radio.
I have tried everything and read the online things 10 times.

How do I set the satellite radio to a new frequency. It only shows the preset one that does not work in my area. The other 4 show as Empty.

The online suggestions for my area for frequencies to use are being used by radio stations.

Thanks
Bonnie

    There is only one frequency showing on the Receiver and that is one that is being used by a radio station.

  • bonnie_june_ Jan 01, 2009

    How do you "enter" a frequency?? That seems to be my problem

  • bonnie_june_ Jan 01, 2009

    There is no dial on the Receiver.

    I can scroll down to 5 entries.

    All but one show as "Empty'

  • bonnie_june_ Jan 01, 2009

    No nothing will input, should it?

  • bonnie_june_ Jan 01, 2009

    Ok, but how???

  • bonnie_june_ Jan 01, 2009

    I have done plenty of research online and still cannot figure it out.

    I have a sirius stratus5

    When I go to the Frequency selector it shows only one station:

    81.5 and that is being used by a radio station here. The others say

    "empty" and I cannot see a way to put the FM station frequency in

    there.

    I would appreciate your help if you can find anything else.

    Thanks

    Cannot find the Frequency tuning step by step!

  • bonnie_june_ Jan 01, 2009

    nope

    so I think I have to go to a more open space and set my radio again and hope it picks the station up

    I am thinking that the satellite radio will pick them up automatically

    and then I will have them on that list to pick from

    Has to be the problem

    I live in mountains so I may not be able to use this sat radio

    thanks for the help

Go through the Settings Menu on the Reciever until you see Frequency Select It and then turn the dial until it matches the same frequency that you are using on the Radio.

    You should be able to Enter a Frequency or Dial in another. If not you may have gotten a Bad reciever. I went through 4 before I got a Good one for my Truck.

The static level is so high I am unable to hear the radio.


Under menu, select FM frequency. Try using different frequency. A nearby FM station could be bleeding its signal onto the FM frequency your unit is using by default.

Trying to install Roady 2


If the Roady2 has a fm modulator built in, you can go to the menu and set the fm frequency. If it doesn't, you could use a fm transmitter that they have for mp3 players to listen to in the car

Delphi skyfi won't connect to my fm radio automatically.


The audio plug overrides the FM frequency setting. That way if you use a tape adapter to run the music through it will use that source instead.

A lot of FM channels are getting crowded into a lot of markets out there. The best way to fix the problem is to use a direct FM module. This way your Sirius will override the FM channel whether it is used or not.

Here is a link for one:

they are very easy to install.

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.
