    I have the kenwood kdc 237..i've checked all of the menu options and it doesn't seem to have a choice to activate the "aux" function.... I keep trying to connect my mp3 player via the front connector, but it isn't recognised. What am I doing wrong ?..sadly I've misplaced the instruction manual

    I have a kdc-135. I put it in stby and push the menu button. All I get is a beep on or off. This has worked in the past and was very simple. What has happened?

Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again. When the unit is next switched on, you should have an "AUX" option accessible via the "SRC" button which will cycle through all of the availale modes ....standby-tuner-cd-aux etc etc.

Do we need to keep stereo in aux mode for hands free calling ... In that case tuner is useless in car stereo....or there is some sort of setting for auto change whenever call comes...

On my mp728 I had to choose the radio or cd source and then hold the volume button for a minute. The I scrolled through and turned "2 zone" on. Once I did this I was able to turn aux on in the main menu.

Perfect fix! My own fault for losing the manual in the first place!

Just bought a Logik tv with integrated Freeview. I have sky+ and the TV plays from the Sky receiver but blocks all non freeview channels, for which I subscribe, how do I get the TV to play ALL the sky...

It sounds like you've just got the TV on the Freeview.

I presume your Sky+ is connected via a Scart Lead to an AUX Scart Input on the rear of the TV.

You need to change the TV from Freeview to the AUX Input, should be a button marked AUX.

If you can't figure out how to do it then please advise the Model of the TV and I'll try and talk you through it.

I have a yamaha Rx-v361 i get sound when in DVD mode, SAT mode but no sound in TUNER or AUX (MP3 player) modes, i checked all the wiring in the back of the unit and everything is connected. please advise

Tuner is internal so there's no way wrong 'wiring' could be the problem there.

Does the tuner actually 'tune' a station?

If you're using V-Aux on the front panel for your MP3 player, make sure you haven't assigned V-Aux to a digital function. Page 48.

I have the same exact problem, er 02

Try cleaning the CD with a CD cleaner that you can buy at any electronic store like Radio Shack. The CD lens may be dirty and is having a hard time reading the CD. Good luck and hope this helps, and yes your going to have to send the CD player out to have a aux jack installed. Look for any electronic repair shop to add the aux jack, good luck and hope this helps.

Using Aux Input in a Pioneer AVH-5700DVD

I'm not sure what aux input you're using - but be advised that if you've plugged your mp4 player directly into the RCAs in the back that won't work - those are outputs, not inputs.

You need to use a Pioneer CD-RB10 (or CD-RB20 if you're running a cd changer, XM tuner, or any other IP-bus component) in order to get an auxiliary input.

If you've done that - you need to go to the initial settings menu and set aux input to 'on'. Instructions are in this link, page 89.

Downloading music from internet to an MP3 player

I guess Sanyo means that have an input jack (line in or aux) where you can connect your mp3 player (after you've downloaded music into it), then hear it on your hi-fi.

Just make sure you connect either the line out or the earphone jack from your mp3 player to the aux or line-in on your hi-fi, then set the hi-fi to play aux or line-in.
