Question about Delphi Roady2 SA10085 XM Radio Receiver with Car Kit

1 Answer

No Signal After Reconnecting Roady2

We have had our Roady2 for 2.5 years connected to our stereo receiver via the AUX connections.  Everything worked great. Today we moved the equipment to make it all look better and now we have No Signal. 


We've reviewed the connections via our original manual:


1.  6V power connected correctly and do have power

2.  Antenna connected and located in the same place--No Signal.  We've tried several channels.

3.  Confirmed cable from Aux connections on receiver to Roady2--all correct.


We also connected the antenna from the Roady2 car set which we don't use and still no connection. 


We just don't know what happened. 


Thanks for any guidance you can provide

    I have a similar problem--suddenly "No signal" after a couple of years of working fine. But I didn't change/move anything--it's been hooked up in my car all along.

    Suddenly no signal and the word Antenna on visual screen. Checked location of antenna on flat roof and connection on antenna cable extension and all seems normal.

Try playing the Roady 2 through a fm radio with the audio jack(middle connection) disconnected and the FM Frequency & Fm Radio set to the same station. At least this will tell if the receiver is working. I suspect that you got an aftermarket audiojack for your stereo. Might want to check that. Go back to the manual FM Modulation setup instructions. Any FM receiver will work. Good Luck

Jvc car radio won't mute on incoming calls

I think the only hope you may have is the radio has an auto signal select in the menu somewhere. You can't use the mute wire as that will mute the AUX as well.

I have a Harmon Kardon HK 3370 Stereo Receiver and a Samsung LCD LE40C530F1W. When I connect the stereo Aux jack to the LCD Audio jacks ( red and white rf cables ) I get no sound out via the receiver.

Obviously make sure your stereo mode selector is set to AUX and the volume on the stereo is turned up at least a little when you test it.

If you still have no luck then try increasing the volume on the TV as well. You may have it set so that the level of the audio signal leaving the rear output connectors on the TV varies with the TV volume. That way if your TV volume was turned down or muted when you tested it, then you would not hear anything coming through your stereo.

There should be a setting in the AUDIO OPTIONS menu of your TV where you can switch between a VARIABLE AUDIO OUTPUT and a FIXED AUDIO OUTPUT level.

With the FIXED audio output level, you control the volume of the TV audio coming through the stereo speakers with the stereo remote only.

Otherwise it should work.

Good luck.

Hello: I just purchased a DBX 128 and have no idea how to connect it up. I would like to listen to my records as well as tape using the expansion mode. However, it seems like it only hooks up to my tape...

Part 1

Let's establish a couple of things first.

1) You already have the turntable part working.
2) Your receiver has a defeatable Tape Loop.

Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.

The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.

In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).

Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.

The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.

EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.

In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? The rest would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that

How aux works?

The Aux works when you have the RCA jacks from a DVD player or video game connected to the back of the stereo. When in that mode, the stereo will play the volume from that device.

Playing MP3 Via AUX comes out crackly

Try turning the volume lowwer on the mp3 player and higher on the head unit. The radio is trying to amplify an amplified sound which is why you are getting distortion.

Is it possible to connect turntables and mixer to Acoustic Wave Music System 2 through the Aux, and simultaneously play a backing CD so that both can be heard? Eg, scratching vinyl over a hip hop beats CD.


A traditional turntable requires a preamp inline with it to PRE amplify the minute signal produced by it's cartridge. Most setero receivers and preamps have Phono connection and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose. Many mixers out there have a Phono section or two, too, so your mixer will determine what you can do with vinyl.

Some of the newer turntables come with selectable internal preamplification to solve the lack of it in modern equipment.

The mixer can send its output to the Aux input on the AWMS-2.

If you have only the internal CD player I don't think you will be able to do what you want. Reason: the AWMS-2 doesn't have a traditional Tape Monitor circuit which would allow its own internal program (including AM/FM) to exit to your mixer and come back in via the AUX. Selecting AUX disables its output. Thgis is to preevent a potential feedback loop. The AWMS wasn't designed for people who want or can control complexity in their listening.

If you have the external 5-CD changer or another CD source, you would be able to run all that through the mixer prior to its entry into the AWMS-2.

SONY DAV - S880 compact AV system may have a pdf downloadable manual available on line.
The standard way to connect Audio from a Receiver to a TV is to send a signal from the Tape outputs (RED & WHITE) on receiver via RCA cable to a Aux input (RED & WHITE) on the TV. Likewise, sending a Video signal from a receiver to a TV, is via a Co-Axial RCA cable , using a Video Out (YELLOW) on the receiver to a Aux Video Input (YELLOW) on the TV. An S-Video cable can also be used (in leu of yellow RCA cable) if available on both Receiver & TV.
