I am not sure but dosn`t the ID# on the radio have to match the # on the packaging?

If it does. they don't check those things. My orbiter went bad (luckily I found the lst radio shack to have a replacement after the holidays) and I returned for the replacement.

They took the new receiver out of the new box and gave it to me. They put the old receiver in the new box to return it. So, the numbers no longer match.

Default Kenwood

I have a Kenwood 902 with an MP-225 head unit. I'm not sure where the problem is, but it bugs me that when switching channels or turning the unit off and on, that the display does not stay in the same mode. If, for instance, the display is on "artist", and I change the channel, it may come up on "channel name". If I then go back to the original channel, it may come back on "category". It just seems completely random, I wish it would just stay put.

Thanks for your patience with my bitching!

Default SiriusConnect SIR-ALP1 Tuner Module for Alpine Head-Units

Very early shipments of these tuners experienced an issue where you would loose all of your presets.

If you were to turn the Head-Unit on and then off and then back on again quickly this would reliably occur.

You may think that this might not happen all that much in real life, but this is exactly what happens if you dwell for a short bit in run before turning the key all the way over to start. The HU goes from OFF to ON (run) then OFF (start) then back ON (run) and Poof! there goes your presets.

I had no problem at all calling up Crutchfield, explaining the problem and receiving a replacement unit. BTW the units that do not experience the problem ship with a blue dot on the packaging, I think it is somewhere near the UPC.

My local RS did the same thing for me when my first Orbiter from Christmas went bad on 2/14/05. Also lucky for me that the manager had thought ahead and restocked with 2 units.

Ranger, I had the same problem except mien was with the contacts on my base and my antenna so I had to buy a new base kit for it which cost me 50 bucks on ebay. I would have just bought a new receiver but I have a 1 year contract. Next time (after my contract is up in June) I am going to get a monthly subscription for my current one and then buy the portable one.

Default Xact stream Jockeyplugs

Does anyone know what the central plug on the receiver is for? The one between the antennae and power jack. I asked Xact customer service but didn't get any reply other than Audio out. The receiver already has an audio out i.e. the headphone jack. Would I be right in assuming that the central jack is an input to an amplifier and if so what kind of plug is it, maybe stereo headphone style jack??
Any help appreciated.[/b]

The center plug is audio out - yes the streamjockey has a jack on the unit itself, and either one should work fine.

The point is that it's supposed to be plug and play - you disconnect the dock, not a bunch of wires.

Kenwood Here2Anywhere KTC-H2A1
Problem: Screen displays certain stream# and stream name, but song title and audio playing are from another stream (usually 1 channel up or 1 channel down from the one showing)
Solution: You've channel up/downed too fast, and the radio couldn't catch up. Change the channel once more, and issue will be resolved.

Sportster issues I've noticed...
1. There should be a mute button on the radio itself, rather than just on the remote.
2. When accidently hitting the Category button on the remote (or the unit itself), the only way to exit this mode is to select a channel or hit "Menu" twice.
Those are really preferences more so than real problems. None of the PNP tuners have a mute on the unit itself and they all require that you the menu twice to exit out of it.
Not True! On my Sportster, if you hit the catagory button by mistake, just press the dial button and it will take you back to the channel you are on.

I have a problem with my Sanyo. After I turn it on it gets all staticy. This starts off not too bad and then gets to where you can barely hear what's playing. It will last about 30 seconds or so and then instantly goes to crystal-clear sound. It's like the FM modulator is fading off-frequency and then jumps back to where it's supposed to be. It sometimes starts as soon as the tuner is turned on, but usually starts anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds after it's turned on. It only happens once when the radio is first turned on and then doesn't happen again while it's left on. Turn it off and back on and it happens again.

I know it's not a local station bleeding in because:
1) When the tuner is off, there's nothing on that frequency.
2) It's just plain old static. If it's a station bleeding in you can hear that station.
3) It happens no matter what frequency the FM modulator is set on.

I don't think it's anything with my vehicle causing it because I previously had an Audiovox and the problem didn't occur with it.

Since February of this year. It's done it pretty much ever since I got it.

I haven't called Sanyo about it. It's one of those things where when I think about it it's not at a time when I could call them, and when I have time to call them I forget about it. LOL
