    Don't know what you are talking about. There is nothing in any of the set up or other programs in the 5000 that refer or relate to your suggestion. There likewise is nothing in the 5000 manual referring to your sugested fix.

Maybe the system has reached the maximum channel capacity and it repeats some channel to have all the incoming signals... Have you tried re-channeling the system.. this will arrange and sort out the numbers...

Good luck... Fixya.

It sounds like you have entered a AUX mode this is when the device tried to find audio input (for example an ipod) look for a button called Function/input or radio

FM Transmitter does not connect to car radio, have FX signal and Line out works.


Car cradle works "wirelessly" with Car Radio (inherent design of unit). Place Unit in Cradle; connect Cradle to Auto Power Source, and SkyFi3 should power on. Press Menu to Get FM Radio station channels; select a lower station Channel Frequency i.e. 88.3 or any vacant channel number and the signal should transfer to your Radio speakers automatically. You can change Station frequencies as often as you need to do so--for example if traveling through different broadcast areas, some channels frequencies are clearer than others. Good luck.

How do I access the songs that are in the memory of my Roady XT?


I doesn't save the songs, only the song title information. Go to MENU and you can see there is a selection to it to show the 'memory' listing -again, it is only the channel, artist and title info to remind you the name so you can buy it. some also have the tunealert feature so that the radio beeps when your favorite is on another channel.

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!!

Clarion SIRIUS Radio Receiver - Not Receiving All Subscribed Channels


My DX445 does the same thing. Here's my method for fixing it, it should work for any similar Clarion receiver:

1. If possible, make sure the radio is turned off when disconnecting the battery. If the radio turns itself on when the vehicle is restarted (for example after jump starting or battery disconnect for a few seconds only), turn the radio off.

2. Disconnect the battery by removing the negative battery cable from the battery. Leave it disconnected.

NOTE: Car batteries can be dangerous things. If you're unsure how to do this safely, get an experiences mechanic to help you.

3. Reset the radio. On my radio this is done by removing the faceplated, and pressing a tiny button for 30 seconds. Your radio may be different.

4. After waiting at least 20 minutes, reconnect the battery.

5. My radio displayes 'System Check -- Press Power'. After pressing the power button, the display reverts to the clock.

6. Turn on the radio. It should work fine on the broadcast bands.

7. Select 'Sirius'. The radio should display 'Updating'. Don't touch anything until the radio finishes its update phase. When it's done, it should tune to Sirius channel 1 and play as normal.

8. This should restore normal tuning. reset your presets and preferences.

What seems to happen is that the radio gets stuck in a 'Category Select' condition, but not all the categories will load, and manual tuning will not allow, say, Radio Classics to play when the radio is stuck in Pop mode.

On occasion (maybe 1 time out of 10), the radio hangs while doing the 'updating' in Sirius mode. If this happens, just shut off the radio and start over. I've never had to do the brute force reset more than twice since I stumbled on this method.
