From the XM user's manual, page 14.

1. Make sure your SKYFi2 is turned off. Unplug any accessory from SKYFi2’s audio jack.
2. Turn on an FM radio and place it close to your SKYFi2.
3. Tune the FM radio to each of the following FM frequencies: 88.1, 88.3, 88.5, 88.7, 88.9, 106.7, 106.9, 107.1, 107.3, 107.5, 107.7, and 107.9.
4. Note the frequency that has no FM station or the least amount of interference.
5. Turn on your SKYFi2.
6. Press the “menu” button.
7. Use the scroll wheel to select “FM Frequency.” Press the “XM” button to confirm.
8. Use the scroll wheel to select the frequency noted in step 4. Press the “XM” button to confirm.
9. Press the “menu” button to return to the main menu and then again to return to the play screen.
10. You should now hear XM programming over your FM radio. If the sound is not clear or you hear
interference or static, try another frequency by repeating the process above.

Will delphi sa10000 without cassette player


Should be able to hear Sirius channels through your FM radio. Cassette is better, but you can just set up your FM radio to the same channel as you set the Delphi unit. See instruction manual (download from online here) http://www.siriusretail.com/pdf/hardware_support/delphi/skyfi_operations.pdf

Stiletto 2 ''buzzes'' when car is running


You have an impedance issue. Typically this happens when you are using the fm transmitter and the interferrence is being introduced from your cars' electrical system. You can fix it cheaply by using a cassette adapter or direct auxiliary connection.

Cassettes being ejected automatically


The belts are probably shot in the cassette player that's 13 years old. You can probably buy another radio like it and just change out the cassette portion if you are a good electro-mechanical person.

If the Roady2 has a fm modulator built in, you can go to the menu and set the fm frequency. If it doesn't, you could use a fm transmitter that they have for mp3 players to listen to in the car

STATIC/INTERFERENCE


&R=11812445&C=17577363&K=NBy0rr?h=2mv3s7&r=11812445 Your SIRIUS radio contains an FM transmitter that allows it to operate wirelessly through your car FM radio. We have determined that the output of this transmitter exceeds the limits established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). As a result, the unit may interfere with the performance of radios operating in areas adjacent to your radio. There are no health or safety concerns associated with this issue.
  • If you listen to your SIRIUS radio wirelessly through your vehicle's FM radio, then please review the solutions listed below and select the one that works best for you. SIRIUS will provide you the best solution at no cost.
  • If you use your SIRIUS radio only when docked in a boombox, or directly connected to your car radio or home stereo using audio cables or a cassette tape adapter, then no interference can occur and no further action is required, provided you have turned off your FM transmitter. To turn off the FM transmitter, first press the MENU button. Use the channel up/down buttons to highlight “FM Transmitter” and push the SELECT button. Use the channel up/down buttons to highlight the "FM On/Off" menu item and then press the SELECT button. Use the up/down buttons to highlight "FM Off" and press the SELECT button. To exit the "FM On/Off" menu, press the MENU button. Use the same procedure to turn off the FM transmitter if you use Solution 1 or Solution 2 below..
Solution 1 - Direct Wired Audio Connection: If your vehicle radio has a “LINE IN” or “AUX IN” jack, you can use a stereo cable to connect directly to your SIRIUS radio. This solution is the easiest to install and provides the best audio performance. Many newer vehicles provide the required audio input jack. It will normally be found on or near the front faceplate of your vehicle’s radio.

Solution 2 - Cassette Tape Adapter
: If your vehicle has a cassette tape player, you can use a cassette adapter that allows you to play your SIRIUS radio through the cassette portion of your vehicle radio. The adapter slips into your vehicle radio as easily as a cassette tape and provides better performance than a wireless connection. fcc_a_2.jpg


Solution 3 - FM Extender Cable Kit: An FM extender cable will provide a special transmitter antenna that allows you to obtain the best audio performance through your vehicle’s FM radio. This solution is easy to self-install, but does require that an easy-to-hide wire be run in your vehicle so the transmitter antenna can be placed in close proximity to your vehicle’s radio antenna. Using this FM Extender Cable Kit, you will continue to use your SIRIUS radio exactly the same way as you do currently. fcc_a_3.jpg



Solution 4 - FM Direct Adapter with Professional Installation: An FM Direct Adapter provides a wired connection between your SIRIUS radio and your vehicle’s radio. You will continue to listen to your SIRIUS radio through the FM tuner of your car radio, but the FM Direct Adapter eliminates the outside static and interference you sometimes experience when using a wireless FM connection. This solution usually requires professional installation. We will provide a certificate redeemable for installation at an installation center in your area.

Please go to www.sirius.com/optimize and select the solution that works best for you. If you have any questions, please call 1-(877) 635-5130. Detailed instructions will be included with your solution.
You will improve the performance of your SIRIUS radio and reduce the potential for interfering with adjacent radios if you properly tune your FM transmitter. Please see the FM Transmitter Set-Up Tips below for more information.
We are sorry for this inconvenience. We are confident these solutions will allow you to continue to enjoy the great music, news, sports and entertainment that only SIRIUS Satellite Radio can offer with no impact on your radio’s performance.
Sincerely,

SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO


FM Transmitter Set-Up Tips

To tune your FM transmitter turn off your SIRIUS radio and tune through the FM channels on your vehicle’s radio to locate an FM channel (except 87.7/87.9) that is not broadcasting in your area. If you use an FM channel that is being used by a local broadcaster, it will interfere with the performance of your SIRIUS radio. Once you have located an FM channel that is not being used for broadcasting in your area, save it as a preset on your vehicle radio. This will become your SIRIUS preset. If you’re not sure which FM channels are not being used in your home or travel cities, you can go to www.sirius.com/fmchannel and search for an FM channel based on zip code.
Turn on your SIRIUS radio. In the SETTINGS or MENU on your SIRIUS radio, locate the “FM Frequency” adjustments. Set the channel number on your SIRIUS radio to match the SIRIUS preset on your vehicle radio. Refer to your user guide for detailed instructions on how to do this. The FM transmitter in your SIRIUS radio is automatically set to FM channel 88.1. This may not be the best channel in your area.

Noise with casette adaptor


Well Jill the problem you are having is called inducted noise. The lighter power adapter cord is inducting electrical current to the cord used by the cassette adapter thus creating the the noise you've been hearing. Do your best to separate the two cables as much as possible. I realize that your unit may have both cords coming out of th same side, and that's fine. the longer the run of wire, the easier it is to have induction issues. If the cords do come out on the same side, run one up and the other down away from the other cord. Do not coil the lighter adapter or cord either, it increases the chance of being able to induct noise. If your unit is to close to the lighter assembly you may need to move the unit to another location in the vehicle itself to help combat the noise issue. Other options include to shield the cassette adapter wire, i use aluminum tape for heating/ac ducts. The only other option i can see is purchasing a FM modulator which will transmit the units sound wireless-ly through an FM radio channel. You will want to check and see...i do believe most XM radios have a FM modulator built in. Hope this helps, and good luck.
