I just hooked up an XM radio to the aux using a cable wich hat the to red and white plugs on one side and a headphone type plug on the other. I turned on the aux setting in the menu. I get sound under the aux setting but I can't controle the volume. I also can't adjust the levels. Is there something else I need to set to gain control of the sound? Maybe I used the wrong cable. Also when I change to cd or radio I can still hear the XM radio.
Thanks for your help,
It sounds like you've connected to the front or rear audio RCA output.
Pioneer CD players generally don't have a direct auxiliary input like that - what you'll have to do is get a CD-RB10 adapter(it plugs into the CD changer connector on the back, and your cable would plug into that).

Try buying a cable that has on one end a plug like your headphones (this goes into your ipod) and two AV plugs on the other end (one should be red the other white) Plug the red and white into the AUX input on the back of your stereo and select AUX. You should be able to buy them at Radio Shack, Dick Smiths etc.
You must make sure where you plug in on the radio side is Aux input, most Radio Aux is at the front or come with special connector if it is at the back. Mostly radio back come with RCA is for Line out not Aux in.
you can connect the XM receiver to you player. for that you need a cable (STEREO MALE TO RCA MALE CABLE). its one end will looks as headphone pin and the other end 2 RCA pins.
connect the headphone pin to you XM receiver's earphone out and the other end (2 RCA) to the AUX IN 2(AUDIO L/R)(on the rare pannel) of ur player. select the AUX 2 input pressing the FUNCTION button on your player.
or purchase a STEREO MALE to STEREO MALE cable and connect its one end to the earphone out of XM radio and the other end to the AUX 1 input of you player (on the frond pannel)
select AUX 1 by pressing FUNCTION button
If you are talking about the cable I think you are, all you do is plug the red and white rca into the input of your choice on the back of your radio and the other end into your choice of audio output (anything with that size headphone port).
If you don't have a cassette player, you can purchase an ipod/RCA adapter cable for about $10 and plug it into your aux inputs in the rear. The cable has one end that fits into your ipod headphone plug and the other end is a white and red pair of plugs (called RCA plugs)that will plug into the rear inputs.
use a y connector with the 1/4 inch jack into 2 RCA plugs, plug the 1/4 inch jack into the speaker plug (on a desktop) or the headphone jack (on a laptop) and plug the RCA plugs into the AUX on your receiver. note the red and white colored plugs and the red and white colored ports on the receiver.
OK all you need is a 1/8 th inch stereo jack that goes out into two RCA cables RED and White (you can get this conector at any radio shack) now plug the red and white wires into the back of your gem sound unit AUX or TAPE..plug in your mp3 through headphone jack into 1/8 in plug....now turn on set switch to AUX OR TAPE DEPENDING on the one you plug into ..now play your mp3...make sure volume is up!
This should fix YA!
your stereo most likely has an audio input in the back. 1 red and 1 white. It's usually labeled "AUX". Go to your local electronics shop, (radio sh**k) and get an rca audio cable where on one side it's 2 cables (red & white), and on the other side it looks like a headphone jack input or female Your microphone should plug into that side, unless your mic has the big jack. In that case just get the adapter to go from big to small. The red and white part of the cable will go into the AUX input on the back of your radio. And that's it! just press the AUX mode of your stereo and your mic should work.
