Question about Delphi Roady XT XM Radio Receiver
After moving my Roady XT from the Belkin Boombox back into the car, it doesn't work anymore. It's been working fine for months. Now it's getting satellite reception and I can hear the sound of the static change when the XT powers on, but I no longer have a FM Frequency option in the Menu? Amy ideas? I tried resetting the factory defaults, but that didn't help.
I had the same problem with all three of my Roady XTs. I posted a video with directions for solving the problem on YouTube:
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!

Although I do not own an XM Boombox and did not have this exact same issue, I did have the same FM Frequency problem when hooking up my brand new XM RoadyXT to my home dock. I spent hours trying to uplug and plug the line out cables as well as the antenna and power cord....not to mention the 20-something power downs and power ups. However, I finally figured out that (at least my Roady) only works thru the AUX option on my stereo. No FM Frequency set-up is needed!!! : ) - Very happy as I was getting ready to just go buy another radio! So glad I tried all my options first! I hope this helps anyone who seems to be having an issue with the FM Frequency "disappearance" option. Thanks!

Please see the message about Belkin boom boxes and roady xts.
The Belkin boom box damages the radio so that it will no longer works properly. According to Delphi techs, there is no solution once this happens. You have to buy a new roady, but don't use it in any Belkin product.

I have the same problem, the unit works fine in my car, and the FM Frequency option disappears when it's hooked up on the base indoors. However, I don't think it's necessarly the antenna on the indoor base, as I have a second Roady that works just fine when it's hooked up to it.

I had the same problem, no FM frequency option when menu was selected. It is similar to rmhurd605. I unplugged the antenna cable from the radio and turned the radio on. Once the display read antenna, plug the antenna cable in and press menu. When I did this the FM frequency option returned to the menu.

I think I may have unwittingly solved this problem with the Roady XT. The FM FREQUENCY option disappears if your XM antenna is not working. My Dad was having this problem with his Roady XT and after messing with it for a long time, I realized that without the antenna the FM Frequency option appears when the radio is FIRST turned on, then disappears. But when the antenna is plugged in and working (showing bars) the FM frequency option is there every time! I finally came to the conclusion that the car antenna for my Dad's radio has a short in it, as when I put the radio on the base and connect my home antenna and power to it, it works, so it isn't the car base.
