So when i got my car(which was free:thehump:) it came with an HD Radio. But i cant get any HD chanels. i read the book and it said that it would come up when i hit the button to switch between Radio and CD and stuff. Anyone know why this is or how to fix it. The radio was installed with a kit from Crutchfield so i doubt anything is not right install wise.

Yes and no. If you have a FM direct adapter its good. The fm mod output is crap. Best of all is the direct adapters for your radio through the aux in. Much better quality than an mp3 and far better than fm imo. I have a clarion pro with the clarion sirius tuner and it sounds great! Better than my ipod on most songs depends on compression.

Maybe they upgraded then.. I have the xm direct with aux in, and i remember it wasnt all that great. wasnt bad just, wasnt as good as a nice mp3..

but who knows, it was probably all the awesome radiating from me causing a bit of interference =p

High Def commercials woohoo! What a load of crap...hd radio. Sirius/XM > hd
:werd: I have sirius and an ipod adapter that hook in through the changer controls that allows me to control them through the head unit. Sirius sounds 10x better than FM imo and it sounds better than my ipod depending on compression like Derek mentioned above. I have the option of hooking up hd to the head unit, but I refuse to pay for the tuner I need to run it just to hear the same commercials in HD lol.

radio with commercials is gay. sound quality doesnt make up for it.


just because its an HD radio doesnt mean it has all necessary equipment to receive HD content.
