Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2

Of course, if your XM device has standard RCA outputs, use RCA cables without adapters.

I have a portable XM and want to run the antenna through my FM radio and my zip is 50595. I can not find the webiste link that lists available FM Frequencies by zip, any ideas on that?


Yes, go to "Radio-Locator.com" - they have a selection for finding unused FM frequencies in your area. Actually, your radio will sound better using an "AUX" input or a cassette tape adapter.

New Xm, went through the steps in manual; no sound in car


The stations you set it to have to be complete static for the xm to come in. Your best bet if you head unit has an aux input is to buy an aux cable(few dollars) and hardwire it. it will give you the best quality for sound for xm.

Installation of XM radio.


Depends if you are using an aux cable to plug it directly into the front of the cd player, then no you don't, or if you use casette hookup you don't. If you are trying to tune it through the radio station you may have to, they do broadcast through the air but if it's a newer model within the last few years the siginal isn't hardly strong enough but may still work you can try it , the older ones had stronger signals and you didn't have to, They started making them weaker so they would not broadcast into your house so they could make more money selling the home docking units for them.

XM SkiFi3


Interesting.  There is a thing called impedance matching.  If the speakers input Imped. doesn't match the SkyFi's Output imped. you can overload it.  Sort of the electrical analogy to drinking from a firehose.  Try charging it and using it on a regular line level input for, like, a stereo.

I have a bose stereo in my 96 nissan Maxima that works poorly


there is a problem in the tape drive - possibly a bad belt- thats why the cassette adapter keeps ejecting itself- most add on xm tuners have the ability to broadcast its signal wirelessly-you press the menu button then turn the tuner to select the menu option that you want then press on the tuner control again to choose broadcast (fm signal and which channel you want to broadcast to the factory radio-try www.xmradio.com for more detailed info

Do you have to run in AUX to get XM Radio? Your receiver and unit sound like its ok. This could be a problem with your provider. Contact your provider and their tech dept can help you organise a solution. Is your radio, XM ready?
