    Similar issue. I'd actually like mine to show either the artist or song. I've pressed display, but that does nothing.

I changed mine once,  (new to the SkyFi3, previous MyFi user). Try these two things: pressing display, pressing & holding display, or go into the preferences and look under display.

Tuner will not work to scroll stations


Press the up/down button, then DISPLAY to show what item you want to see (Song Title / Artist / Channel Name). Also, there are settings under MENU for your display options as well. Go to the MENU Settings to set how you want to see your display. Okay? Let me know if you need more help. John

I just bought a 2gb MicroSD card to put in my device. I need to know what menu settings i need to change to record songs onto the card instead of the internal memory on the device


The bad news is, because of the RIAA and royalty rules, you never are able to record from XM onto the MicroSD card. All you can do is playback your OWN MP3 files that you've put on the card. Also, you will LOSE all your recorded XM songs from the SkyFi3 when you don't listen to XM live anymore after a month; so complain to the RIAA and all the record labels that made this stupid rule.
PS: Make sure you've updated your FIRMWARE from the XM or Delphi website. Good luck!
PSPS: Does your SkyFi3 add a 1/2second blank inbetween songs when you record continuously and the song title changes?

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.

Recording to the micro disk


It can't do it. Disk is for playback of YOUR own personal MP3's only. Sorry, but the RIAA told XM that they can't allow you to do that.

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!!

Broken SkiFi vs New SkiFi 2? Direct Replacement? Please advise-Thanks


The original SkyFi's display was quite difficult to see in the sunlight. The glare was too much. The new unit's display is a different material, and sunken in to alleviate the problem of glare.
The SkyFi2 also has TuneSelect. It was the first receiver to allow the user to enter the artist information for memory. Other units with TuneSelect only allowed song titles.
It also added a 3rd bank of presets, allowing for 30 presets instead of the original's 20 presets. SkyFi2 added the option of a stock ticker, or sports score ticker in the display. The original SkyFi's option of 3 different displays included the channel number only, to be displayed. Also, there is a built in FM modulator so you can set the tune on the reciever... and yes you will be able to use all of your accessories.

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.

XM 2 GO Not Playing


I had the same problem. I had to reset (use a paper clip into the RESET hole under the battery cover ( or pull out the battery for a a couple of minutes). Then, after recording some songs, I switched over MYXM and then began rotating the channel selector dial. The volume indicator arrow moved off zero and began advancing up the volume scale. I kept doing it until it about half way and my sound was back.
