Anyone found a way to make a longer cable for the XM home antenna, whats inside? is it just really thin copper conductor with no shield? Anyone?

Its a pair of coax cables, a copper solid core and a braided shield.

I was referring to the antenna/satt not the audio cables. It is long thin and black.

Yep, thats what I was talking about. It is a small pair of coax cables, one for the rf antenna signal and one for the sat signal. In the new models it'll only have one cable.

My connector does not look like that. It has "1" plug...like a tiny RF connection. It is a delphi unit...that is probably why we are crossing signals here. Thanks for the input so far.

Ok, this one then? http://shop.store.yahoo.com/xmfanstore/anexcasa.html http://store3.yimg.com/I/xmfanstore_1739_742105 But it looks like it is discontinued, another one is coming out.

You can use this one though, http://shop.store.yahoo.com/xmfansto...pxm25foca.html
It says "To use with the Delphi home kit, you will have to "pop-off" the colored plastic housing (instructions included)."

http://www.xmfan.com will be able to help you more.

JamesMH thank you for all your help. Looks like there is a new receiver base that has a diff style plug?

Thanks again. My new homeowners will be happy to hear they can get XM on their new whole house audio system.
