Home Installation
There are two parts to setting up your Home Kit. First, connecting the Home Dock
to your stereo or powered speakers, then placing and aiming the Home Antenna.
Let’s start with getting your Home Dock set up.
Step 1: Connect the Home Dock
When installing the Home Dock in your home, choose a location in close proximity
to your home stereo system or powered speakers, and also where the cable from
the Indoor/Outdoor Antenna can reach the Home Dock. The location should be
easily accessible and provide good visibility of the display, but should not be
located where it will be in direct sunlight, which will affect the visibility of the
display screen.
You will also need to decide whether you will be connecting your Home Dock to
your home stereo system using the provided Stereo Audio Cable, or directly to
powered speakers.
Connect the Indoor/Outdoor Antenna
Once you have selected a location, connect the antenna to the ANT IN connector
at the rear of the Home Dock. (After
completing a few additional steps,
we will work on the location of the
antenna.)

The Home Dock can be connected to your home stereo system, or to a pair
of powered speakers. If you are connecting to a home stereo system, see the
following section. If you are connecting to a pair of powered speakers, see
“To Connect the Home Dock to Your Powered Speakers” on page 15.
To Connect the Home Dock to Your Home Stereo System
The Home Dock can be connected to your home stereo system through the

AUX IN or LINE IN connection of your home stereo system, using the provided
Stereo Audio Cable.

Take the provided Stereo Audio Cable and connect the single 1/8” (3.5
mm) connector to the AUDIO OUT connector at the rear of the Home
Dock.
2 Connect the white left and red right Stereo Audio Cable connectors (“L”
and “R” are also on each respective tip) to any available input other
than PHONO on your home stereo system. (If your stereo’s inputs are
marked red and black, simply connect the white plug to the black input.)

Home Installation
Step 2: Install the Indoor/Outdoor Antenna
To begin, try experimenting with the Home Antenna to get a feel for the reception
in your location. Move the antenna around the room or from room to room. Aim
it from different windows. In major metropolitan areas, you might find that you
get great reception in several locations without worrying too much about aim and
placement.
Refer to your radio’s User Guide for instructions,
and access the Signal or Signal Indicator screen
of your radio to see a visual indication of signal
strength. If you’re receiving a good Satellite and
Terrestrial signal strength, you’re done. If not,
try some of the suggestions which follow.
Other Indoor/Outdoor Antenna Installation Suggestions
If you find you are getting a
signal, but it’s inconsistent,
try moving the Indoor/
Outdoor Antenna closer to
a window, ideally one that is
facing due south.
Not sure which way is south?
Think about where the sun
rises (in the east) and sets
(in the west). Then stand so
that east is to your left and
16
S
you’ll be facing south. Is there a window in the direction you’re facing? Move the
antenna closer to the window.
TIP! Still not sure which way is south or where to place your Home
Antenna? Look up your location on an online mapping Web site that offers
satellite views of street addresses where you can easily see which way is
south, and what window may offer an unobstructed view of the sky.
Another easy method is to start at any window, then work from window to
window in a simple pattern to find the window gives the best signal strength.
Note that the antenna must also have an unobstructed view. No trees or
buildings blocking its aim. If the antenna is aimed through a window, be
aware that blinds, screens, or any other non-glass elements such as thermal
insulation can sometimes cause reception issues. If this is the case, you may
want to use another window or place the antenna outside of the window.
If you find a window that gives you good
signal strength, you can place the antenna
on the windowsill. The antenna may need
to be placed on something to raise it above
the level of the window frame.
If you don’t have a window where you
receive a consistent signal, or placing
the antenna in a window is not a practical
solution for you, BETTER reception
can be achieved by placing the antenna
outside on a window ledge, porch, table,
or patio. The location you choose should
provide the antenna with a clear view of
SOUTH
17
Home Installation
the southern sky.
If none of the previous solutions work
for you, then the BEST reception can
be achieved by mounting the antenna
outdoors, with a clear view of the
southern sky.
Note that you will want to consider any
potential hazards when you choose
the mounting location, and possibly
consider professional installation.
SIRIUS XM Radio Inc. is not liable for
any damages.
To mount the antenna, you will need
four screws (not included)
with a 1/4” head (e.g., an M3
screw), and that are suitable
for the material onto which
you are affixing the antenna,
(e.g., wood, metal, etc.). The
screws should be spaced 1-3/8”
apart horizontally and 1-1/8”
vertically. Refer to the template
on “Indoor/Outdoor Antenna
Template” on page 30.

OUTDOORS

Once you have found a suitable location for the antenna, route the antenna cable
18
to the Home Dock. Be sure you avoid any
obstructions that could crimp, kink, or
twist the cable. Use protective grommets
wherever rough openings are encountered.
If the antenna is installed outdoors, route
the cable from the antenna location to the
interior of the home, working the cable
through the basement, under a window
sill, etc., and make adjustments to take up
cable slack as necessary.
1-3/8 in
1-1/8 in
TIP! If your Indoor/Outdoor
Antenna’s cable isn’t long enough,
visit xmradio.com/accessories, or
your favorite retailer, and consider a 50 ft. Indoor/Outdoor Antenna
Extension Cable or a Wireless Home Signal Repeater.
If the signal is good for either Satellite or Terrestrial (or both), and you are
hearing the audio from the radio, the installation is complete.
If the signal reception is low, or intermittent, try another location for the
antenna. Verify that the antenna is pointed south, and that the antenna’s view
of the sky is not blocked by a tree, a building, a bridge, or anything else. Adjust
until you are receiving a good signal.
The Indoor/Outdoor Antenna’s reception can also be tweaked by opening or
closing the antenna clamshell, and turning the antenna. While observing the
signal strength, make small adjustments to the angle of tilt of the clamshell
until the highest possible signal strength is achieved. If you have not wallmounted the antenna, turn the antenna slightly to the right or left and
19
Home Installation
observe if the signal strength increases. For each tweak, allow a few seconds in
each position to determine if the signal strength increases.
SOUTH
If the signal reception is good, but there is no audio, verify your audio connection.
• If you are connected to a home stereo system, be sure the system is set to
the auxiliary input source, and you have connected the Stereo Audio Cable
to the auxiliary input connectors.
• If you are connected to powered speakers, be sure the speakers are
plugged into an outlet, and are turned On.
The audio level of your radio can also be increased. Refer to the User Guide which
accompanied your radio and increase the audio level.
If you still have questions, for example, ‘Are there any other options/things I
should consider?’, etc., refer to “Troubleshooting” on page 22.

Troubleshooting
Your Home Kit has been designed and built to be trouble-free, but if you
experience a problem, try this:
• Check that all connections are firm and secure.
• Make sure you have connected the Home Dock as described in this User
Guide. Verify that the AC power outlet is working.

If you see this on the screen:
Try this:
Acquiring Signal
•Move the antenna to a south-facing window. Not
sure which way is south? Think about where the
sun rises (in the east) and sets (in the west).
Then stand so that east is to your left and
you’ll be facing south. Is there a window in the
direction you’re facing?
•You may need to find a better location for the
antenna. Refer to “Step 2: Install the Indoor/
Outdoor Antenna” on page 16.
Check Antenna
•Make sure that the Indoor/Outdoor Antenna
cable is firmly and securely plugged into the
Home Dock. Make sure the cable is not bent or
broken.
•Turn the radio off, then on, to reset this
message.
Channel Off Air
•The channel you’ve selected is not currently
broadcasting. Tune to another channel.
Loading
•Your radio is acquiring audio or program
