Re: antenna

I just pushed the radio into the boombox real harder and the message isn't there. We'll see how it goes. I think it was that simple for me though. Thank you God.

Re: antenna

I had a problem with mine. I thought it was the antenna. it's actually the car kit dock. I have to wedge a fold chunk of paper at the back to keep the pins in contact. haven't seen 'antenna' msg since.

Xm check atenna connection

If you are getting the same "check antenna" message with two different antennas, it is likely that the tuner itself is the problem. You can get just the mini tuner here:

As far as the two plug connection, there are adapters available. Its likely a dual fakra connection, though I don't know for sure. At any rate, this is one adapter available. (I would call to confirm)

Antenna for XM not working

You should be able to pick up a new antenna from any sirius/xm retailer. One thing to try before you buy a new one is; make sure that the antenna has a good view of the sky- the best place to mount the antenna on a car is either on the back of the roof, or on the trunk lid of a car. If you have a SUV, mount the antenna on the back of your roof away from any luggage racks. Run the cable under the weatherstripping and your carpet so it will look "clean".
If your antenna is for a house, it will need to be placed in a window facing southwest. Delphi makes a great repeater for the house (i have one at work and at home). Good luck.

I bought sirius radio for my husband who drives a truck. He is having trouble keeping a signal. The truck is a large four-car hauler and we wondered if placement of the antennae was the problem. Even...

They make a special antenna that mounts on the the mirror mount for the big rigs. You need a big antenna, as the regular one isn't going to work very well on a big rig. Many full service truck stop stores have the big rig antennas. Try that first. You might have better luck with XM than Sirius too,

XM radio is not working. Tries to 'Load' but then says 'no signal'. XM says that I am receiving the signal but Honda says there is no problem. They want to try to replace the antenna for $500 but are...

You best bet - if you can get to the rear of the XM tuner unit, is to temporarily connect a magnetic-mount XM antenna and see if it works. A bad antenna usually says "check antenna" - not loading could be a good antenna with a bad location. I would try the little XM antenna by itself, then go from there. $20 is a lot cheaper than $500. Let me know how it works out.

I have a Siriusconnect Home Tuner and an XM Ready Receiver. Will they work together? What do I need to make the connection from the 8-pin mini DIN on the Tuner to the XM connector on my Denon AVR-587?

Not gonna work, sorry to say. You need the little two-piece "XM Ready" tuner unit (with antenna) to plug into your XM Ready receiver. Sell the Sirius Connect Home Tuner and buy the XM unit. XM unit still available at some Best Buy stores.

Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Repeater

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. Hope this helps!

It keeps saying antenna

The Tuner is bad. It's a very very very common problem among Sirius and XM users. It's a cold solder joint at the antenna input of the receiver. If it's out of warranty, replace it. Check ebay or Google it and you can find a replacement cheap. Sorry for the bad news, but that's the answer. Hope this helps

XM Sure Connect antenna assembly.

You didn't say which type of vehicle your wife drives, so here is a generic answer, Good luck (my wife loves her Sat Radio!)

By the way did you get any reception without the kit?

The SureConnect cables plug into the vehicle dock antenna plug and the XM antenna then plugs into the SureConnect cable. The SureConnect cable cannot be used on a retractable or motorized antenna.

If you cannot use the cable, at all, then I would go to Crutchfield, via the phone or web, as they have good technical advice. You may need a different adapter. Possibly part # 040SA10112.

XM Roady2 Built in FM Modulator not working

It's not in the menu selections because the Roady 2 does not have an internal FM transmitter. The Roady XT does though.
