Question about Delphi Roady XT XM Radio Receiver

1 Answer

Signal is fine, but service goes away after ten minutes.

When I turn on car I have no problem with my signal and I am able to hear channels. However, after approximately ten minutes, I cannot hear channel even though signal is still showing to be at maximum. This has been going on for quite awhile. However, when I travel to the mountains it appears to clear up. Any suggestions?

My roady xt stopped getting channels 70-78, I've had the signal resent but it still won't work?

First, make sure that you have a very good signal - check channel 1 audio. Then go to the MENU and 'RESET' to factory settings.
Then call SiriusXM and have them send a 'REFRESH' signal - leave it on channel 1 for about 20 minutes, then check and see if you have Channel #4 - if you do, then dial-up Channel 71 - you should have Sinatra - UNLESS, you have a MUSIC-ONLY subscription, which limits your channels to only the specified ones. But, with XM Select or higher, you should have channel 71 again. Let me know how it goes. Good luck.

How do you set time/date?

Hi, do you have the MiniTuner module in the radio? You need that in, and the antenna connected facing the SW horizon. Turn on to SATellite. Adjust antenna so that you can hear Channel 1 clearly. After you hear channel 1, the satellite will send a time signal. Then go to MENU, select Adjust time and pick your time zone and if you are on Daylight Savings time. Then, menu to exit out. Your satellite signal will keep the time updated when in Satellite mode.
I don't know if that will also set the regular clock too, or just only the time while in satellite mode. Let me know how you do with it.

I have a replacement xmp3H1. I had best of serius service on the old radio and recntly renewed service. Now I can't get best of sirius service even though I paid for it

Turn on your XMP3i radio and place it where you have an excellent signal, and power, so you're not relying on only the battery. Tune the XMP3 to Channel 0 to get your serial number, write it down, then tune the radio to Channel 1 and leave it there. Then, call XM Customer Service and explain that you're paying for B.O.S. and then ask XM to send a 'refresh signal' to your radio - that might take a half hour or so, but it should then add the extra channels that you're paying for. Ask then how long to leave the radio on Channel 1 and they'll let you know. Good luck, and let me know how it goes for you. Happy New year too!

Activated Sirius service, unit says "no channels available"

Turn the unit on for about 15 minutes. Cycle through the channels, starting from channel 1. You won't have to go through all of them, but this should get it working. If not, go to your account online, or call SIRIUS and have them refresh your signal.

Aquiring Signal displays for 5-10 minutes before hearing audio

It's a bad Sirius tuner. You can find them on ebay for 50 or so rebuilt and they are better than new. It's cold solder joints on the antenna input plug. Hope this helps

Same problems here also, had sp-1 for 4 yrs no probs at all! I even have a brand new antenna, needed to be replaced any way, thought that would fix problem (ACQUIRING SIGNAL) No luck ,why does everything...

Go to XM, I did. But first, call Sirius and ask them to 'refresh' your receiver. Leave unit on channel 1 for 30 minutes and see if problem go away. Make sure to turn off and on with pushbutton on unit - not remote, and do not just diesconnect power..

Use plug-in power supply and leave on channel 1. Call XM (1-800-XM-RADIO) and ask them to "refresh" your radio. WAIT 1/2 hour, then check your channels. Make sure you have a decent signal too (can hear Channel 1 okay) before you call XM for the 'refresh signal' for your new radio.

Can't get refresh signal to work for xm radio

to reset the radio - it must be removed from the dash and unplugged.
Be sure to write down any anti-theft codes if your radio requires them.

However - since your radio is getting the 2 channels - it is working properly. The problem lies in XM turning on your account.

Be sure to get the correct # off the radio... sometimes there is a transposition error with paperwork.
The number can be gotten by setting your radio to channel 0. This is your radio ID# required to activate the radio.

Your Radio is working fine - call XM and stay on the line until they activate your account.

I have a suspicion the number was written down improperly.

Be sure when you call that the car is on, and that it is tuned to station #1... also - it can take 15-20 minutes to activate - and must be left on for the duration to catch the activation signal that is sent out.

Here are the steps from XM to activate manually-

Get Your XM Radio Activated Online

Step1 Turn on your XM radio and tune it to channel 0. The display will read your XM radio's identification number. This number will include both letters and numbers. Write this number down and head to your computer.

Step2 Log onto the Internet and go to the XM radio website. A high speed connection to the Internet will make this go faster, but you can activate your XM radio online with dial up.

Step3 Click on the tab that says to activate a new XM radio. This will take you to a screen where you will enter your XM radio's identification number. Type this in.

Step4 Choose a screen name and password to make an account on the XM web site. The screen name should be something that you will easily remember. The password needs to be at least 7 characters long and include 1 capital letter, 1 lowercase letter, and 1 number.

Step5 Enter your personal information for the activation of your XM radio. This information will include your name, address, and email address. You will also need to choose which service plan you will want to purchase for your XM radio. Enter your credit card payment to finish purchasing your activation of your XM radio online.

Step6 Turn on your XM radio and tune it to channel 1. XM will send a signal out to your XM radio to activate it. You will need to leave the radio tuned to channel 1 for 15 to 20 minutes to activate it.

If you have additional questions or concerns - please ask me first before moving on to another expert.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
