I have a boom box with the home antenna outside. Every day at the same time, about 4:00 pm EST the signal cuts out for an hour. Even when I move the antenna I can't get a signal. Has anyone else experienced and resolved this problem? Thanks.

You begin by setting up your existing (((XM)))
antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good
reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing
window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM)))
Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the
antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the
included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the
rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal
transmitted from the unit.
Once the power and antenna are attached, both
blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that
the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether
your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You
will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do
determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.
Once you have this setup, place the Repeater
Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna
jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your
(((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and
kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does
not require any separate power connections.

You may have several problems.
If you are using a indoor antenna, upgrade to a outdoor antenna. The indoor antenna has to be adjusted every time you change a channel. If you plan to sit in a chair and never move when watching tv, you may be able to pick up a channel or two. Get a UHF/VHF antenna from a home improvement store. The big box electronic stores are selling a digital antenna. There is no such thing. The antenna doesn't know if the signal is digital or analog, it just picks up uhf and vhf signals.
The other problem could be that the box is bad if it is not saving the scan. I would check the antenna first from what you said though.
Same problem on my CX-7. I've had antenna replaced one so far. It takes about 30 minutes in the cold (usually on at night on my commute home) to get signal. I agree, during the summer months, everything works fine.
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.
