Default Question about Clarion and Alpine HU's and SIRIUS Radios

Okay, can anyone with a Clarion and/or Alpine Radio HU with the hard wired SIRIUS Radio (Not a plug and Play) tell me if you can look at what's playing on another channels while you listen to one channel?

Nope. Look ahead is not available on any direct-connect tuners.

I would be nice to see more features on the direct connect tuners, like XM Direct.

I thought the Kenwood's could?? or are you talking about the new tuners like the Alpine and the Kenwood 904 that are a two piece brick thing. The Clarion SIRCL1 tuner is like a 902 or 903...

None of the add-on tuners have look ahead for artist/song. The 904 will not be released, it will be replaced by a SIRIUS Connect version manufactured by Directed Electronics, as will the other brands.

I wonder if this is being done to keep it from being another XMPCR

I imagine the memory and firmware for those smart features would add to the costs. The add-on tuners are meant to be the cheapest of all for SIRIUS to manufacture.
