My experience with the XM2Go is that it never really works well on the portable antenna -- in my case not a complete failure, but that might be because I am in an urban area there are ground transmitters in addition to satellite reception. But any movement disrupts the signal Here's the solution - record some music on myxm (up to 5 hours) while docked, and play that music when not docked to an antenna.

Does it get a solid signal when its in a docking station? Its likely that the internal antenna on the unit is disconnected. Antenna headphones would correct the issue, though they are not very durable at all. I know that our repair guy is able to fix the internal antenna, but I would ensure that is the issue first. Try plugging it into a home dock, car kit, or boombox to see if it works through one of those antennas.
You begin by setting up your existing (((XM)))
antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good
reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing
window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM)))
Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the
antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the
included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the
rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal
transmitted from the unit.
Once the power and antenna are attached, both
blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that
the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether
your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You
will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do
determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.
Once you have this setup, place the Repeater
Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna
jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your
(((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and
kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does
not require any separate power connections.

I have a 3 year old Sportster 2 replay unit that worked perfect until 1 month ago. I posted my problem on this website a day before you did with this same problem. I googled to no end and even spoke to Sirius who wasn't willing to replace my unit at no charge since it was out of warranty. I found an unusual solution on the internet that worked for me. I place my receiver in the freezer for at least 20 minutes (this was recommended by a guy somewhere on the internet with the same problem). I have actually left it in freezer overnight too. This has solved my problem. It is the craziest thing but I thought I would try it before I resorted to replacing all my accessories and receiver since Sirius was less than cooperative with the issue. Anyway, hope this helps.
I had the same problem with my Pioneer Inno Gex-Inno2BK XM radio receiver. One evening while leaving work, I gently took it out of the cradle & the screen suddenly went completely blank & all white. I could still hear music but there was no screen visible. Solution is this: (1) Gently remove the back cover which covers the battery. (2) Gently remove the dark blue square battery which is only about 1 inch (width) by 3/4 inch (height) by 1/4 of an inch in thickness. I removed mine by holding the receiver upside down & gently shaking it with one hand until the battery came out into my other hand. After about 4 or 5 gentle shakes, it came out. (3) Wait about 10 seconds. (4) Place battery back into XM radio receiver being careful to line the copper power receptable on the battery with a corresponding surface inside the receiver. Each copper area is only about 1/10 of an inch by 1/10 of an inch. Use this as a guide when putting the battery back in to make sure it's lined up properly. (5) Gently slide the cover back in place & let it snap into place. (6) Turn receiver back on by pushing power button like normal. (7) XM receiver should boot up with a full display just like new. All recorded songs are still in place. Nothing has been lost. Problem solved. Root cause of problem is probably some type of boot-up issue with the receiver in which the battery (i.e., the power supply) just happened to be slightly ajar...which also persisted even when placing the receiver back in the cradle until the above steps were taken. The steps above worked beautifully for me...Hope it works for you as well! Have A Great Day...Tom Armstrong
you can try to open it and resolder is really easy but you have to be carefull when you take it a part there is many small resistors and capasitors near the antena and you will need a scope to see the wires and to solder i fixt my like that and it works fine
When its in the car dock, the Inno sends an FM signal to the car radio. It does not receive a signal from the car radio. You must have the external antenna correctly installed outside the vehicle for the Inno to work. The built in antenna is disabled when the device is placed in the car dock. Make sure to test it outside, since garages or car ports will block the signal.
While in the truck, make sure the antenna is on the outside of the truck. It has magnet so it is easy to stick to the roof.
Do not know what to say about the home antenna, mine is not working right now.
