    it doesn't change stations, it changes modes, like from radio to dvd player or ipod mode. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does happen it keeps doing it for like 10 minutes. I keep putting it back to radio and then a minute later it switches mode by itself.

I just bought the RCA CD/DVD home theater system RTD206. I cant figure out how to change the radio channels. Also cant figure out how to change the cd disk tracks. Does this system have a remote. Or do...


The system does have a remote (at least it should come with one if purchased new), and you need it to control pretty much everything. Here's what the manual says about the radio tuner (you can find the whole manual here) :

Manual Tuning
1. Connect the FM aerial and the AM loop antenna at the back of the unit. Rotate the AM loop for
better reception.
2. Press TUNER to enter TUNER mode and toggle between FM and AM.
3. When the FM station broadcasts Stereo sound, ST is displayed.
4. Tune a station by pressing repeatedly the TUNER+/- buttons until the desired station is found.
Alternatively, you can press and hold the same buttons down for about one second to activate
the automatic search function. In this mode the player will automatically tune frequencies until
it finds a station.
5. Repeat step 4 to tune to another radio station.

Storing radio stations
The player can store up to 30 radio stations in its memory. You can enter every single radio station
yourself or the player can store all available radio stations automatically in ascending order.
Automatic preset programming
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press and hold TUNER down for 3 seconds to start automatic preset programming.
Note: A weak signal can affect the "Automatic preset programming" function's efficiency. Adjust the aerial for better
reception and a more efficient search.
3. Radio frequencies will be browsed and radio stations stored automaitcally. When all the available
radio stations are stored or all 30 memory locations are full, the auto preset programming
function will stop.

Manual preset
1. Tune to a radio station (see "Manual tuning" for details).
2. Press MEMORY once to enter flashing Preset Loaction number.
3. While the Preset Location number is still flashing, input your desired preset number (1-30) using
the numeric buttons or press the CH+/- buttons, then press MEMORY to store it.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press CH+/- to search up or down for the preset stations or directly press the numeric buttons.

As you see, you really need that remote. The same is true for disc play. While there are front panel buttons for play/stop, disc skip, and drawer open/close, you don't have any other control without the remote. Without the remote control you'll find this system won't do too much, unfortunately. If you bought this new, check the packing material before you throw it away to make sure the remote's not still somewhere in the box. They often come tucked into slots on the foam inserts.

Also, when you hook the unit to a TV, it's just using the TV as a video display device. The TV has nothing to do with any of the system's other functions.

I hope you have luck locating the remote! Thanks for using Fixya.

are you using more than one amplifier? it sounds like you may be using the blue wire to turn one amp and and the blue/white to turn the other one on. use the blue/white only. the blue wire is antenna remote and turns off when not in tuner mode.

Ipod stop working a radio. MP3 Player will work.


Usually, On a pioneer stereo, the button that you press to change sources (Tuner, CD, etc etc).. if you hold it in, the unit will turn off.

Look for a button that says Power, or PWR near it with a Square and little line coming from the square, that means you need to hold that button to perform that function. Hope this helps.

AM radio tuner set as MW tuner. How to switch to U.S.A. AM mode?


AM is just another name for MW. The Radio should tune to a strong signal regardless of the frequency the radio is set to. It should also sweep the entire frequency looking for stations. I'm assuming it has a channel scan setting, plus options to set a number for the station. AM/MW are very much dependent on the position of the either internal or external Ariel. If you have the radio in the wrong position or you have some electrical equipment nearby it could block the signal for the station you want, but not affect the others. Which might explain why it can't find the station you want.

Ipod- I want to convert my dvd's to put them on ipod nano


You need a DVD to iPod Converter software.

I use Cucusoft DVD to iPod Converter.
Step 1: Convert DVD to MP4 or H.264 supported by iPod.
Step 2: Import the converted movie to iTunes.
Step 3: Connect your iPod to your computer, sync the movie to your iPod.

Hope it helps!

FM Radio


Hi
iPods do not come with FM tuners. FM tuners can be bought and added on as an extra feature, but this is a third party device, not an iPod device.

Generally, when you connect the third party FM tuner to the iPod, the iPod will recognize it and you can use the 3rd party FM tuner to change stations.

If you do not have the FM tuner to connect to the iPod, the individual that sold you the iPod did not include the FM tuner to connect to the the iPod. In that case, the Menu will still list the FM tuner, but there is no device to connect to the iPod.

Have a philips tv and a home theatre system but the remote off the surround system just changes the tv settings. Its kind of frustrating when I want to watch a dvd! Do I have to assign a freq?


When you press a function key on the remote control, not only does it change the function on the system (eg DISC, TUNER, TV etc) but it also changes the function on the remote.

However, if you change the function or source on the system, then only the system changes.

It sounds like you have changed the function on the system to DVD, but the remote is still set to TV. When in TV mode the remote will send Philips TV codes.

Press the DVD or DISC button on the remote.

Recording from Tuner


I would suggest using the programme guide on the tuner and setting the record up from there rather than trying to set up the whole thing from timer mode.

How Do I Get a DVD to Work with This TV?


Make sure to switch the TV's tuner mode to Video or Aux mode.
You can change the mode using the original TV remote or directly from the TV's control panel.

Again, tuner mode picks up all live broadcast airwaves and Video or Auxillary mode displays what is inputed into the TV via second device..

Good Luck!

Auxillary option not available in menu


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.
