Question about Sony STR-DA90ESG
And have difficulty tuning in frequencies. Has anyone else had this problem? In my car, I pick up many stations, but only 2 on this receiver. I've hooked it up to an outdoor FM antenna, and no improvement. I've about given up!
Is this just a problem with my receiver or has anyone else had difficulties with receiving radio stations?
Well I would consult your manual. Home receivers usually dont have the same amplification factors that a mobile unit does as far as sensitivity. But for best results make sure that you are using the supplied antenna, and put aluminum foil over it. This will help amplify the signal. Also consult the manual as to weather there is a setting for DX or Local. If there is, make sure that it is not set to local.

Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a

stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning
Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.
Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to
achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.

Neural THX listening.
