I record certain programs on XM radio. I never had any problems until recently. The program records on time, from begining to end, but the audio doesn't transmit (to either the radio speakers of thru the headphones).

This is of course against the rules of your XM user agreement, but if you wanted to 'test' this out, just run the 3.5mm plug from your earphone jack to your 3.5mm 'LINE' input on your computer. Load the free program called "Audacity" on your computer, hit 'record' and you can record and edit the song, saving as an MP3 or WAV file. Again, this is against the XM rules, so this is all just theoretical okay? You would then need a program like Nero to take the MP3 or WAV and record to a blank CD. Just a theory though.
The bad news is, because of the RIAA and royalty rules, you never are able to record from XM onto the MicroSD card. All you can do is playback your OWN MP3 files that you've put on the card. Also, you will LOSE all your recorded XM songs from the SkyFi3 when you don't listen to XM live anymore after a month; so complain to the RIAA and all the record labels that made this stupid rule. PS: Make sure you've updated your FIRMWARE from the XM or Delphi website. Good luck!
PSPS: Does your SkyFi3 add a 1/2second blank inbetween songs when you record continuously and the song title changes?
Press "mode" button so that the reciever is receiving music from satellite signal on the station you want to record. Then press "2Go" button - screen will ask you to press again to confirm - press again, and it will record whatever was being received. It will record over what was already in 2Go. In menu, under "myXm" there are choices to clear the entire memory of recorded music.
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.
If I understand correctly-you are saving the xm files in the xm format and thus can not be then moved to a cd or computer. You can take mp3 music though and add it to your inno but not the other way around.
I had the same problem. I had to reset (use a paper clip into the RESET hole under the battery cover ( or pull out the battery for a a couple of minutes). Then, after recording some songs, I switched over MYXM and then began rotating the channel selector dial. The volume indicator arrow moved off zero and began advancing up the volume scale. I kept doing it until it about half way and my sound was back.
