    Hey, guys, a few Qs for people with an XM capable Onkyo and the XM antenna (I have the 803)

    1)Does the receiver display the song titles and channels on the TV?
    2)Or is it only on the front of the receiver?
    3)Does anyone prefer just a regular SkyFi receiver and hooking it up with stereo outs?

    If I can display song info and channels on the TV I'd go for the antenna + receiver combo, but if it's only going to be on the receiver I might as well buy a receiver I can move to my car.

    Thanks for all of the questions, guys,
    Patrick

    Patrick, you should post this in the XM forum also (or instead).

    I recently opted to go with the portable unit (got a SkyFi2) so I could use it at home and in the car.

    Audio quality through my 3806 is so-so at best. Some stations sound worse than my FM reception. And this is with full strength reception.
    I'm pretty critical when it comes to audio though. I'm sure it's fine for what it is.

    I thought I'd post it here because it dealt moreso with the Onkyo receiver itself and not the service, but I see your point. If I don't get anything in a few days I'll repost.

    Thanks
