Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

I have an after market installed XM radio on my Lexus. Never a problem until the May 4th channel change that XM/Sirius radio implemented. I was able to get all the new channel lineup but the presets on my radio do not work, so everytime the car is turned off or the radio is turned off it jumps to a different channel. I have tried setting the channel per my car manual but they will not stay set. Any ideas?

The radio was improperly installed; there are two 12V leads, one services the radio when on, the other, only the circuitry for the clock and presets.
Eventually, this shouldn't be needed if the manufacturers ever think about using a little bit of flash memory for the presets and a coin cell for the clock.

You didn't give any model number so researching the manual is impossible.
If you can find the model number, look for a user's (or installation) guide on line to find the wiring info.

SOURCE: Radio Station Presets wont hold

hi girlygirl 1

the problem is your ignition and your permanant battery live wires are the wrong way round all you have to do is remove the stereo and you will usually see a red wire plug into another red wire and a yellow wire into another yellow wire all you have to do is change the red to the yellow and the yellow to the red and it will hold the memories fine hope that helps !

Can my sirius sportster 2 won't receive channel 210


Yep, new radio. The old Sirius radios won't go above 184 (most won't even get above 145) and the old XM radios won't go past 256, so to get the "Xtra" channels you want a new XM radio like the Onyx PLUS, or The XM Edge - both will give you not only all the regular channels, but an eXtra 20 channels or so that you can only get online or on a new 2.0 radio. Let me know how it works out for you. Regards, Engineer Scott

Auto Tech: SiriusXM Satellite Radio

It seems like satellite radio has been around Canada forever now. Virtually every new vehicle sold here incorporates a satellite radio option although some even include satellite radio standard. May it be Sirius or XM, satellite radio offers drivers numerous radio channels which are accessible virtually anywhere in North America-ideal for international calls trips.

For anyone unaware of satellite radio, it is really an audio service available either inside your vehicle, with your mobile device, or online. The plethora of programming and quality of sound is different from station to station, and in some cases from song to song. Some songs be understood as there're being streamed throughout the internet and some could be seen as an audio DVD being took part in the car's built-in system. In addition to the various theme-based music channels, there are news, talk, and sports channels.

Satellite radio wouldn't actually arrived at Canada until 2005 when both XM and Sirius began offering it to us Canucks. Individuals who regularly employ this service, or keep pace with industry trends, knows that Sirius and XM merged in north america in 2008 and brought their services together. In Canada however, things were different. Sirius Canada and XM Canada failed to initially agree to the merger because of differing views regarding who should get what percentage from the company. But, a contract was reached and on April 12, 2011 SiriusXM Canada was officially formed.

Yes, many of the channels are now the same and you will pay a little bit more for an additional package called "Best of XM" to add some XM-specific channels to your Sirius radio.

How do I get to channel 210? When I turn the knob on the radio (2009 Mercury Mariner) it goes from 194 to 0.


Channel 210 is MLB Home Plate, which is part of the "Best of XM" package. If you haven't subscribed to Best of XM, which costs extra on top of your Sirius base subscription, then you cannot receive that channel.

Additionally, only certain radios are "Best of XM" compatible.. The fact that your car is a 2009 model.. While I don't know what radio it has in it.. I would assume it is a newer model radio that does have Best of XM capabilities, so the problem is most likely that you do not have the Best of XM package.

Delphi skyfi won't connect to my fm radio automatically.


The audio plug overrides the FM frequency setting. That way if you use a tape adapter to run the music through it will use that source instead.

A lot of FM channels are getting crowded into a lot of markets out there. The best way to fix the problem is to use a direct FM module. This way your Sirius will override the FM channel whether it is used or not.

Here is a link for one:

they are very easy to install.

Can't get XM channels


Goto sirius.com. You will need to access you account and find out if your radio is upgradeable for XM channels. You can find that out once you try to add xm to your account.

If it isn't you can get a free or a discounted radio from them to do it by calling customer service up. They do that for existing customers.

Sirius Radio Invalid Channel message


1) Do you have a Sirius account?

2) Have you called Sirius and given the serial number of that receiver?

Those are the first two things you have to do to get a Sirius receiver working. (The original owner could have changed his account to use his new receiver, if he has one.) Go to http://www.sirius.com/install - the "activate" part - for details.

Sirius vs. XM


Hello pdweidner,

The CN-NVD905U is fully satellite ready and is compatible with both Sirius and XM. To change services you will need to purchase and install a XM compatible tuner and antenna to replace the Sirius tuner and subscribe to XM service.

Best regards,
Ken
