Hello all, I have a Pioneer DEH-6700MP head unit hooked up to a Terk XM receiver and digital adapter which plugs directly into my radio. We have had all three pieces hooked up for about three years now with no problems. Just last week the radio would all of a sudden change XM stations or turn off. Or, you would change the XM channel and it would display the last channel you were on, show LOADING on the screen, but actually switch stations, even though the screen is the old station and saying loading. Sometimes the whole radio itself would turn off. What might it be or what should I check??

The DEH 4800MP does not have a direct USB connection. To get this you need to purchase a separate adapter which plugs into the IP BUS port on the back of your head unit. It is called a CD-UB100 usb adapter. Unfortunately these are becoming harder to find for a reasonable price. You can see what they look like here and they can be purchased on ebay here. Cheers, Dan
If you really enjoy the head unit call pioneer, there customer service is great and before you fork out another $300 for a new unit why not hear what they have to offer. Some companies have refurbed units ready to ship, just an option.
The correct iPod adapter for this is the CD-IB100ii, not the PAC piece you bought. With the correct adapter you will be able to charge your iPod, get text and control from the head unit, and of course audio playback through your system.
did you use a wire harness adapter or did you connect the wires from the radio directly to the wires in the car? do you have a computer safe test light or a digital vom meter? do not use a conventional test light in this car or an analogue meter to check for power
