Question about Sirius Sportster 4 SP4-TK1 Satellite Radio Receiver with Car Kit

1 Answer

Home signal interruption for an hour each day

I have a boom box with the home antenna outside. Every day at the same time, about 4:00 pm EST the signal cuts out for an hour. Even when I move the antenna I can't get a signal. Has anyone else experienced and resolved this problem? Thanks.

    Is this problem still going on?

    Where in the US do you live? The satellites are positioned in a particular area of the sky and orbit in a specific pattern. Antenna aiming is very important.

My sirius kt-sr3000 also works fine in car dock, but when inserted into it's plug+play boom box,boom it displays "antenna not detected"


Try swapping the boombox antenna with the car dock to see if you get the same problem. If yo do, you know the boombox is bad. Otherwise, its the antenna and you just need to get a replacement.

THIS UNIT AFTER 3 YEARS WILL NOT RECGONISE AN ANTENA,THIS HAPPENS ON MY HOSE BASE,CAR BASE AND MY BOOM BOX, I HAVE REPLACED ALL HOME BASE,CAR BASE AND BOOM BOX AND ALL ANTENAS NOTHING HAS HELPED.......I'M...


Hi Glenn,
Understandably frustrating, but it sounds like an easy fix.
First, go through the settings on your radio to be certain that nothing was set incorrectly.
Second, make sure your antenna wire is not malfunctioned or tampered with. Broken pins can render an antenna useless. These satellite radio antennae are fairly cheap to purchase on their own, so you could try purchasing a new one and see if it works.
If that's fine, open the receiver. Generally these radio's use small torx or philips screws. Once opened, check the area where the antenna is plugged in - is the lead/wire broken? Is the solder coming off? All of this can be fixed easily if spotted. You can even solder the antenna permanently on if you like.

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!

Receive "Antenna Fail" on receiver


Same problem on my CX-7. I've had antenna replaced one so far. It takes about 30 minutes in the cold (usually on at night on my commute home) to get signal. I agree, during the summer months, everything works fine.

Roady XT periodic errors


The pins get easily damaged when switching from the car dock to the Belkin boom box. I have to constintly squeeze very ******* the top of the xt in order for it to make contact. Belkin will send you a plastic alignment fixture but it is too late. It still does the same thing.

Antenna not detected / Searching for signal


I have the same problem. It's happened twice now. Each antenna has lasted about 1 year. The connection is good, the antennas just stop working. It's almost like there's some built in life span. Who knows. It's ridiculous either way.

Antenna Not Detected. Now I have to buy a new one AGAIN $39.00 and re-wire thole whole thing in my car. PITA
