Re: overheats and cuts off
Check the antenna and see if its grounded out anywhere, like if its chaffed and grouned to the car somewhere. If not try turning on the unit outside of the car or using it in the home dock, if it does the same thing its a problem with your unit or car dock

First, make sure that you have a very good signal - check channel 1 audio. Then go to the MENU and 'RESET' to factory settings.
Then call SiriusXM and have them send a 'REFRESH' signal - leave it on channel 1 for about 20 minutes, then check and see if you have Channel #4 - if you do, then dial-up Channel 71 - you should have Sinatra - UNLESS, you have a MUSIC-ONLY subscription, which limits your channels to only the specified ones. But, with XM Select or higher, you should have channel 71 again. Let me know how it goes. Good luck.
There can be several causes for this, few of which you can do anything about. However, a few things to try.
1) Replace the batteries on your remote control. 2) Try resetting the logic functions on yourtvby unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in. 3) Try covering up the infra-red receptor on the front of your TV to see if you're getting unwanted signals from the receptor. taping a piece of foil over that area is perfect. If it doesn't stop after doing these two things you'll probably need to take it to a shop. 4) If this does stop it, then look for unexpected signal sources. Have you added a remote control extender? Added a new device to your audio-videosystem? Changed to a new remote?
Good luck with your problem...I hope you can work it out.
if you plug and unplug your antenna connection to the receiver a lot it loses the ground(shielded) line connection, if your lucky you can take a safety pin and CAREFULLY bend the radios 4 outer shell antenna contacts inward to make contact with the antenna connector, if its the plug on the antenna,try pushing wire in toward plug connection to the radio...delphi never had much for life on any external products that fit their XM radios but when you need repl parts boy are they waiting for you, and they got them
when it reads antenna it means there something wrong with either the connection or the antenna itself, it could be the location of the antenna or the antenna is going bad. if there is no obstructions on the car blocking the antenna i would advise purchasing a new antenna. you can get one at http://shopdelphi.com/consumers/satradio/xpressrc/
Check the power connection on the radio, look in he hole there is a small brass strip that can ware down on not get a good connection, get in there and bend it in toward the center but not to far. See if this helps It worked on mine
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.
The pins get easily damaged when switching from the car dock to the Belkin boom box. I have to constintly squeeze very ******* the top of the xt in order for it to make contact. Belkin will send you a plastic alignment fixture but it is too late. It still does the same thing.
