We have had our Roady2 for 2.5 years connected to our stereo receiver via the AUX connections. Everything worked great. Today we moved the equipment to make it all look better and now we have No Signal.
We've reviewed the connections via our original manual:
1. 6V power connected correctly and do have power
2. Antenna connected and located in the same place--No Signal. We've tried several channels.
3. Confirmed cable from Aux connections on receiver to Roady2--all correct.
We also connected the antenna from the Roady2 car set which we don't use and still no connection.
Try playing the Roady 2 through a fm radio with the audio jack(middle connection) disconnected and the FM Frequency & Fm Radio set to the same station. At least this will tell if the receiver is working. I suspect that you got an aftermarket audiojack for your stereo. Might want to check that. Go back to the manual FM Modulation setup instructions. Any FM receiver will work. Good Luck

Yes. On the back you will see a "line in" and a "line out". Each jack accepts a standard 3.5 mm Aux connection. You can run audio through that either aux to aux or aux to RCA. These cables are very common and available at most electronic shops, otherwise, you can find them at tss-radio.com
One thing to verify is that the Ai-Net switch at the bottom of the radio is set to Norm and not the EQ position. And also gray Ai-Net connectors are for audio input and the black Ai-Net connectors are for audio output. It sounds like you have everything connected correctly and at least the Sirius is coming up. And I assume that the CD changer works when connected directly to the reciever so you know that it is working. I would suspect that there might be a problem with the Sirius reciever not allowing the communication signal to connect to the Alpine deck and in that case you would need to get a new reciever. You could check the Alpine radio settings and see if there is something that needs to be changed in order to allow the CD changer to work. If you disconnected the battery connection to the radio then it might have reset the settings to factory default. Otherwise it sounds to me like the problem is with the Sirius reciever.
First...you still need a sirius antenna plugged into the device. If you just started using this you may just need to resend the signal. Just call the sirius/xm people and follow the recorded prompts to send a new satellite signal. Then make sure you are parked somewhere that it is receiving a good signal and wait. It could take up to 30 minutes to reset completely.
I agree with you. It sounds like an internal audio circuit problem, especially if the tape adapter does the same thing. Have you tries headphones on the unit? If they work, then get the sure connect as it plugs into the headphone jack (Aux out jack)
By the way, you as an XM customer for years, usually XM will just give you another unit to keep you as a customer. I've seen it many times. Couldn't hurt to ask!
I had to add the sure connect antenna on one vehicle and it solved it. Doesn't make sense since one car would run one receiver and had no sure connect but the one receiver needed it. Anyway-works for me fine now!
Yes it should be very easy with use of the ear phone jack - depending on the model of course but generally all you need is an ac/dc power supply, the antenna connection, and for connection to receiver you can connect via FM or hard wire.
FM: as in your car pick an FM station frequency that is clear (no station on it) lets say 88.1 then set your home receiver on 88.1 and there you have it.
DIRECT: purchase a stereo 3.5mm headphone cable with two RCA male plugs at the other end. A faily common cable found in dollar stores or for five times the price at Walmart/Radio Shack etc.. Plug the 3.5mm plug into the 'headpone' jack of the satellite radio and the RCA plugs into the rear of your home receiver - usually a 'aux/line in plug" or "tape in" plug then turn the knob on the receiver to "aux or tape" selector. Bingo you should hear satellite radio all over the house....if the volume is UP! Take care Frank
The input source is controlled by contacts in the actual input on the side of the radio. It sounds like the contact for an aux connection is stuck closed. The contacts need to be separated, and probably the only way to do this is to disassemble the radio. If it is under warranty (less than a year old), I would suggest calling SIRIUS warranty for a replacement. If not, and you don't feel comfortable taking the unit apart, find someone who is because the unit is most likely salvageable!
You can connect the inno via the home doc and the provided cable in the home kit. You may have to connect to an unused component on the receiveer (VCR comes to mind)...You move the VCR source on your receiver and you should be good to go.. I have a Pioneer Elite receiver but Pioneer makes no cable to connect those two ..no matter... I wanted to control the Inno from outside the receiver's controls.. Sam
Did you have the unit installed at a shop that would have hardwired the power source? It sounds like either your power wire to the sirius unit is connected to a noisy power source (which is why you are picking up the alternator whine), or you have a poor ground connection to the unit.
If it was installed at a shop, take it back and have them move the power source to the same wires that the radio gets power from.
If you are using your cigarette lighter for power, unfortunately it sounds like your outlet doesn't give you the best source for powering an audio component. You might try stopping by a car audio shop and ask how much it would cost to hardwire the sirius' power to the back of your radio.
