Verify if the radio is "Satellite ready" or if it comes with the remote tuner unit. I believe you have to buy a separate tuner add-on and antenna in order to activate the satellite circuitry - THEN it will show you a radio ID. I think ONLY the Alpine comes with the tuner. I would call Crutchfield and they can tell you what all you need with that tuner to make it work with the satellite radio.
Sirius Mode Selection While in Sirius satellite radio mode, press S-MOD (22a) (also the SHIFT/SCAN button) to select from four available modes: Normal, Category, Direct Tune and Set Skip Channel. When the Category or Set Skip Channel modes are selected, the corresponding icon appears in the display. When the DIrect Tune mode is activated, the alphanumeric display appears.
I have the exact same issue. I have swapped with two identical MR17.2 radios and swapped out the sirius receiver. No change. I even bought a remote thinking I had to have a remote installed to get it to work...still no diff. Have you ever found a solution?
The Sirius Tuner is separate from the AM/FM/CD, check the plugs between the two. If all is snug, pull the SIRIUS tuner and go to a JVC dealer that would have any deck w/sirius as an option and plug it in. If it sees it, it's more than likely a problem with your deck. My guess is it's a bad SIRIUS tuner. There have been LOTS!!! Good news is there easy to replace if bad, and there cheap! $45.00 from Crutchfield rebuilt.
Here's what they don't tell you: AUX isn't automatically an option when you scroll through the SRC button. You have to turn it on. I know, I know...stupid. I had to contact Kenwood (the maker of the unit) directly to get an answer.
First, press the SRC button repeatedly until it displays STANDBY.
Then hold down the Menu button until MENU is displayed.
Next press up or down on the right control knob, to scroll up or down, until AUX OFF is displayed.
Next hold the right control knob to the left or right until Aux switches on.
Now just press the Menu button to exit.
AUX will now be an option when you scroll through the SRC button
