Question about Delphi SKYFi XM Radio Receiver
Got a signal two weeks ago. Starting up again and nothing. I've tried three different antennas in different location. Refreshed radio. Downloaded new firmware.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

I have the same problem and the person I just spoke to said there is definitely a problem with the radio itself and told me to return it to the store! I told her I bought it five months ago and asked if that would be a problem and she said it would not. This should be interesting...

You can't download Xm programming, like you can from itunes, where you get a song in 3 or 4 seconds.
Do you mean record music? You must record realtime, either while listening or while the unit is idle in its cradle.
It's easy. while listening to the radio in the cradle (press mode repeatedly to get to Live XM mode), then press the center (play/pause) button. the menu will pop-up, select Record. It will give you the option for Song, Channel, and Session. Just chose one of the first two and press the button. You should see a microphone appear at the top of the screen. It's recording. Follow the same steps to stop the recording. Setting up a recording session is self-explanatory once you get into that screen.

8GB card is a SDHC card, and these units were designed to read SD cards. At a glance, you would think it shouldn't make a difference, but data is stored differently on SDHC because of expanded capacity than SD cards. I, too, learned the hard way; purchased storage card before researching "processing" capabilities of the Skyfi3 units.
Your card should work fine in a Cell phone or other devices specifically designed for SDHC cards. Hope you get some use out of it.

SOURCE: Problem with the Delphi SKYFi3
Common problem with SkyFi3 units. You have to press the Volume UP button and hold it while you press the POWER button; this will 'reboot' your radio, then you can try it again to get it to go off.
You will need to update your firmware on the radio using the baby USB cable and the unit plugged into your computer WITH the battery recharged FIRST. Also, go to the www. xmradio dot com website and download the SkyFi3 FIRMWARE update. Then you need to download the "firmware update" into your SkyFi3. If this doesn't fix your lockup problem, you need to call DELPHI customer support, and they can tell you one more 'master reset' method. After the firmware update, it might take 2 or 3 'restarts'. Again, press and hold the Volume UP and PWR at the same time to reset a 'locked-up' SkyFi3. Regards, John
