Sat Radio Power Hook-Up

Hello all
Trying to hook up a direct power connection for my Sat radio (red and black wires) Ground not a problem, but would like to hook it up the red wire to a power source that turns off with the ignition switch like I've done in other cars

Tried tapping into the radio fuses in the fuse box but one is always hot the other is only 5v and doesn't help

Don't like that the cig lighter / power sources are constantly hot and don't turn off with the ignition switch either

Any ideas?

Why not hook it to the remote wire coming off of the radio itself that way when the radio is on the satellite receiver will power on as well and when the radio is off then the satellite receiver is also off.

I would find a fuse that is hot with the key on and off when the key is off. Its easy to find with a test light. Then install one of these. Its a add a circuit. It replaces the fuse and has fuses for the fuse you replaced and an added circuit. Be sure to pull the fuse and test to see what side has power. Which ever side has power put the lead on the other side.
