I want to do the same thing with my Alpine CDA-7892. Did you ever find a solution?

Not real sure if Sirius works the same way but on my 9830 I plugged in the box to the HU and you have a run through you can attach the Ipod to.

If you go to Crutchfield they have the XM radio package with the tuner(not the control face) and ant. The you just need a patch cable for your ipod and plug it into the tuner and you're done.
