This boom box will damage your Roady xt xm radio. Belkin makes a part that you need to put between the roady and the boombox that you will need. If you dock the Roady xt with out this small adapter, it will ruin your Roady XT. I got this information from the tech's at XM radio. I have not yet been able to contact Belkin for a part number of cost of the part, but my roady is now shot. Will no longer work.
DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I MADE......contact Belkin before trying to use your Roady XT with this boom box.......get the part from Belkin first! The boom box dock does seem to fit the XM Roady XT, but when you put the Roady into the boom box, the Roady will get damaged by the connection. The guy at XM told me that it breaks off a part of the audio connector of the Roady XT. They have had many calls about this. The XM Tech's told me that Belkin came up with a part to fix the problem.
After spending about 30 minutes on the phone, which required a callback on my part to the SAME PHONE NUMBER (for some reason, TECH SUPPORT could not connect me to CUSTOMER SUPPORT), I am now being told that this part is no longer available!
Since the F5X007 is now a discontinued product, Belkin is telling me that it is no longer supported and this part (nor any other) is no longer available.
So, basically, their product has ruined my Roady XT and, not only will I not be reimbursed for the damage, they will not even fix the problem with their product so that it won't damage another one!
I tried to talk to a supervisor but was told none was available, so I am set up for a callback within 48 hours - WHAT A JOKE!
This is the third issue I have had with Belkin support in about a year. I will never buy another Belkin product again, and I urge anyone reading this to do the same.

This is the best I could find. http://akamaipix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/599/599F5X007.PDF In order to re-boot, you need to call the 1-800 number, give them your radio number (will be displayed on channel zero) and they will send you a "fix" code which takes 15 min and then your channels will be back again.
My XM Boombox is also white and it is a Belkin. The folks at Delphi told me the receiver in the boombox is screwed up which over time also screws up the Delphi receiver. Belkin is sending me a new boombox and Delphi is sending me a new Roady XT.
Basically, you just need to have the antenna unplugged when you power up, and push menu right away, then select. Not sure why, but it worked on all of my Roady XTs. On the oldest one I had to push menu more than once. Good luck!
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.
