Question about XM Radio (XMP6000)

AM radio fuzzy now

After I installed my XM radio, the AM stations got interference from the power supply. It initially went away when I disconnected the power supply. However, this morning I heard a brief buzz and now the AM is fuzzy all of the time, even when no power is going to the XM radio. I don't have any clear AM stations now. Any ideas what might have happened?

I have to disconnect the power supply (I installed a switch) to shut off entirely the XM power supply as it will wipe-out your AM reception. Nothing you can do other than put in a switch. Even if the XM unit is OFF, you will still get the interference from the power supply.

My old unit stopped working;(worked perfect for many years) so I replaced with a new same model and I have bad interference and FM static. Sometimes the FM station overrides the express radio and all you...


The very first XM radios, (SkyFi2, MyFi, Roady2) up until they were put in red boxes, had a VERY strong FM transmitter, so strong, that when Sirius was their enemy, they complained to the FCC and they made the FM transmitters real weaklings. So unless you have one of the first two batches of XM radios, the FM transmitters now are real junk and you're better off using an AUX input on the radio or a cassette tape adapter. Okay? Thanks.

New Xm, went through the steps in manual; no sound in car


The stations you set it to have to be complete static for the xm to come in. Your best bet if you head unit has an aux input is to buy an aux cable(few dollars) and hardwire it. it will give you the best quality for sound for xm.

Xm radio installation in house


hi there..this will be like a walk in a park...first, in your home kit you should be having the ff: antenna, rca cable(audio cables), power adapter & docking station. We just have to 'placed the radio into the docking station' then we just have to plug in the ff cables into the xm receiver..we can start plugging in the rca cable(one ended connector) into the ' audio out ' of your xm radio...the other ends of the rca cables should be plug in into the 'audio in'(at the back/infront of your sound system)...plug in the antenna in the 'antenna out' of your xm( the antenna should be placed into a south facing window and not being block by tall trees and buildings outside)....plug in the power source and turn on the radio....if you got it right you should now be getting the prev.channels/emergency allerts...u can call xm to send a refresh for you to get the complete channels..or you can do it online by logging into www.refresh.xmradio.com(if the radio was already activated) if not, you have to call xm radio to activate it..enjoy listening to xm..Godbless..

Have SkyiFi 2 and use with cassette adapter - but, want to use in other dar


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.

No Signal on my XM Radio


Lately I have been loosing the signal constantly in the house. I've tried different stations to see if it would be any better and it's not. I called xm and they refreshed my signal but it didn't do ant good. It's really annoying to constantly have the signal fade. Everything is hooked up right. This is been going on for about 5 months and my neighbors complain about the same thing.

Any Suggestions
