Mine got stuck like that too. For a while it was possible to hold down the volume button and the mode button at the same time and it would unlock. But now that doesn't work. The Delphi tech support guy said I need to do a firmware update, but that isn't working either.

I have repeatedly used the standard reboot for Skyfi3 and it will not work. There is supposed to be another high reboot that can be done.. Does anyone know it? Tyhe unit will not get out of scanning media...

I downloaded the updated firmware, saved it to my computer. Hooked up the skyfi3 to the usb port and took the power cord from the home dock and plugged it directly in to the unit. Held down the volume up and mode button, then as soon as it got to the "scanning media" screen I hit the up arrow, then the down arrow, then the up arrow again. This got the unit running and I was able to upgrade the firmware. It took two or three times to work, but eventually worked like a charm.

My delphi xm is frozen

My radio was stuck on "scanning media" and the regular reset (volume up and Mode) did not work.
Nothing that I did, fixed it...
I called Delphi and they said...
(1) Put radio in it's cradle, press Volume UP/Mode buttons for 3 seconds until it resets.
(2)Then when the "scanning media" message appears press up arrow, down arrow, up arrow.

My delphi screen unlocked. I LOST everything that I had recorded, but that was fine with me.

I had to update the firmware and everything is working fine.

Losing all my recorded songs was much better than having to send in my radio!

Hopefully this will work for you!
Delphi was extremely helpful and very nice so don't be afraid to call them if this doesn't work!

Changing channels with XM radio

Push the button just to the right of present number 1 and this switches the setting between scan and scroll while in XM mode.

XM displaying - (XM is updating) in navi screen

I had the same problem and resolved it by unplugging the data cable. Make sure its the data cable and not the ip-bus cable that you unplug. That should work. The problem is when you have a NavTraffic compatible unit but are not subscribed to NavTraffic, it tries to update it. But because there isn't a subscription for navtraffic it fails to update. Unplugging the data cable will make the unit think that the xm receiver is not compatible with navtraffic and will make that message go away. You will still be able to receive xm channels without the data cable being plugged in.
