Question about Car Audio & Video
I purchased an Alpine IVA-W205 unit with XM connectivity. It worked fine for a few weeks then without warning the XM is no longer displayed in the source menu to be selected. I checked with XM and my account is OK. I can't get the demo channel even. I don't even have the ability to select XM. It's like it never existed. Spoke to retailer and they said they have experienced this with newer Alpine units and it is a software issue that Alpine says there currently is NO FIX ?? HELP !!!!
Wow this is a tuffy,
OK HERE IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TO FIX THIS
1.) download the firmware update for the alpine 9883
you will get it off the manufactures web page
2.) Install it,
3.) when ever an update comes out for your alpine IVA-W205 you can upgrade back up to that
The problem really is with the software, now there isnt a current fix for it as they havent found the problem yet. However the alpine 9883 firmware works on your model alpine and very damn well too i may say.. So thats the only way to fix it currently.
here is the firmware http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/products/product_software.php?model=PVD-B100%20Software%20Update
here is alpines home page http://www.alpine.com/
just follow the above instructions and you'd be fine
