Does anyone know any product to switch the factory XM head unit to Sirius radio?

There might be some options posted over in the XM & Sirius Satellite Radio discussion, so check that one out too.

There is a product called SIR-GM1 that converts the XM signal to Sirius. I installed one in my 05 H2 and my 06 C6. In both instances I purchased a small cable that converts the antenna lead so you can use the XM antenna. In the Hummer the unit mounted behind the glovebox. In the Vette it is under the waterfall on convertibles and under the carpeting in the cargo area on the coupes. I just picked up a new Denali last Thursday and will be adding one soon. These items sell for anywhere from $79 to $99 and are available at Best Buy, Circiut City and Crutchfield. They are easy to install and you still get all of the Sirius information through the XM radio. The radio band will continue to read XM1 and XM2, but you will get the Sirius station name, number and all of the artist and title information.

tommbo, I haven't installed the SIR-GM1 in my 07 Denali. I installed it in my 06 Vette. The other day after posting the message above I learned that it may not work in the 07. I read a post stating that GM has changed the wiring bus and the SIR-GM1 won't work now. I also read that the manufacturer, Directed Electronics, is developing a new model that will work. Unfortunately, there was no indication when that will become available.

Unless something's changed to two companies are still working on a merger. I too prefer Sirius, but will wait to see what happens wtih the merger.

Hello all, any update on the 07 Denali conversion to Sirius? We just got our Denali and XM stinks. I have Sirius in our other car and in the house and love it. I can not wait to switch the new ride over to Sirius.
#24 of 72 Rear Audio speakers - No Sound
Jan 03, 2008 (10:35 am)
I have been trying to diagnose an issue I have with my 03 Denali XL. The rear speakers have no sound coming from them. In addition, the rear audio (head phones) do not have any sound coming from them when they are plugged in. I thought that the channel had been blown on my amp and replaced it only to find that was not the issue. I am wondering if it may be the head unit rear channels. The front speakers (door speakers, Tweeters, and Subwoofer) all play fine. The other possibility I have thought about is the rear audio control. It is as if the rear audio controls have been activated and only the rear speakers have been muted. Issue with this theory is the fact that the rear audio controls do not work either. Any idea’s how I can diagnose this issue?
