Re: poor radio reception
You wanna boast up the radio signal?? There are ant. boasters around, But if your far away from a radio station your radio cant make that weak signal any higher in amplitude. All you would be amplifying is noise or static. Sorry

Your power antenna wire maybe hooked up to ignition. So when you turn off the car no more voltage is going to your antenna wire so your power antenna goes down causing a poor reception. You must hook up the blue wire on the radio harness to the power antenna wire.
You want to pick a frequency where there isn't an existing station, so the radio will have a clear signal from the dvd player.
If the DVD player only has a few frequencies to choose from, then tune the radio to each one (with the DVD player turned OFF) and see which one has the most static and the least signal from radio stations in your area.
If the DVD player can be set to any frequency, then just pick a frequency (usually down on the "88" side of the FM band) with the least local signal, then set your DVD player to use that frequency.
Does this make sense? Feel free to ask questions with the "add comment" link. If this solves it for you, please be sure to hit the "thumbs up" for me!
If you used the 2 plug nissan radio harness, there should be a blue wire on there which is the (power antenna) even if your car doesn't have a power antenna, this wire needs to be connect to power on the am/fm amplified ant which is used in many nissan cars.
if the jensen has a blue or a blue/white wire, connect it to one of those. if not, you can always connect it to the red ACC wire. that should solve your reception problem..
I just solved this problem on my Ford Edge 2010. Start the dvd. Hit the FM button on the remote. It will pop up an FM radio frequency in the top left corner of the screen. For example, ours is 88.7. Tune the car radio to that frequency and the sound should come through the speakers. Hope it works for you.
Check the antenna connection behind the radio to be sure it is taped and not touching ground. Also the antenna & cable running to it for worn spots in the shielding, or corrosion.
I think (based on knowing how manufacturers do things at times) that their is a very cheap universal chip type tuning system in play here on the order of about 10 cents value that many manufactures are probablly incorporating these days. What I did to solve this annoyance was to purchase (after many tests) a SHARP brand walkman type AM/FM hand unit that has really good AM and jack it into the preamp section before my crossover (added an extra input via Y-adapters) and use Ni-metal-hi batteries that can be recharged. I get about a week out of the 2 AA cells. I also had to build a rather good cable (shielded) to go from the unit to the 1/8 jack to cut noise a notch more. This has proven a good situation for me.
With this knowledge, I wonder what head units actually have good rejection circuitry and great gathering power for amplitude modulation?
