Cambridge Audio one DX1 unable to pick up digital radio stations in Perth Western Australia, a cheap sony system in the same room picks up 50 stations


Hi, Sorry to tell you this. Your Cambridge maybe too old and out dated time to replace it. You may be able to get a good Home theater receiver. More and more people are switching to home theater systems and the sound is awesome. Good luck

My Klh r3000 receiver is great for everything except picking up am or fm stations? I had an antenna attached, but the unit is in my basement, and I get no signals at all. What could I be doing wrong?


If the antenna is in a basement that is the problem - the fact that it is below ground means that no signals can get through.
Radio signals are blocked by buildings, large lumps of metal or other solid objects as well as strong magnetic fields (which can include electrical devices within the home).
To pick up good radio reception you will need an external antenna above the ground level - preferably as high as you can get it. Unless you get an omni-directional antenna like this one http://www.maplin.co.uk/vhf-fm-omnidirectional-aerial-874 you will need to point the antenna accurately at the transmitting station (+ or - about 5 degrees) for FM. At a pinch you might get by with an indoor aerial but it needs to be above ground level (inside a roof would be best)
Good external AM Radio aerials are harder to find these days.

My portable electohome radio model EA15OK sitting on my night table makes a loud buzzing noise when my light is turned on.


It sounds like you understand the mode that causes the noise. What kind of light is it? Some lights emit RF so it wouldn't be a mystery that a radio would pick it up.

Kenwood RV7030 audio-video stereo has static without antenna


OK I am going to suggest two aerials for you. I would also NOT use the old cable as it will cause a lot of problems. It is best to replace it with the stuff they use for satellite dishes (see image).
The FM aerial will pick up signals from all sides. The TV aerial should give high quality signals and output for at least 5 sets.

How to conect iPod to Bose Lifestyle 12 Series II System


I connected my iPod with the same Bose with a cable you can get from Radio Shack for under $10.00. Please forgive me for not knowing the technical terms but one end has the male red and white plugs (audio composite)while the other is a single malplug that goes into your iPod. Just pick an open spot to plug it into the back of the Bose (Tape, Aux, Video) adn you are on your way.

Found the link to the radio Shck site and the cables.

Hope This Helps.

We have the sharper image wireless indoor outdoor speaker and when we plug everything in there is nothing coming out of the speaker. Are we able to get it to pick up satellite radio?


The wireless speakers do not pick up a wireless signal outside of the round wireless broadcaster that came with the speakers. You will need to connect that to your satellie radio to broadcast to the wireless speakers. Make sure the wireless broadcaster component is plugged into the sound source you want to make wireless. After you've connected the broadcaster to the sound source and turned everything on then push the Auto tune button to connect to the broadcaster and recieve the sound.

Vauxhall astra radio keeps switching on and off on its own


I had this problem for the last 2 weeks, didn't think much of it, but recently the car radio just turned on and off by itself, it decided to do so whilst the car was switched off and it drained my battery. After doing some tests with the Amp meter and removing the fuses for the radio and infotainment system the amps going through the batter went from about 0.7 to 0.001 (far more accpetable) - so the radio was draining the battery and randomly turning itself on/changing stations and the internal display system had stopped working.

after putting the fuses back in and re-testing the radio worked fine (almost like it had a full reset - no random turning on and off OR changing of radio stations)

the fuse box for my astra was next to the battery under the bonnet (see your car manual - I had lost mine so googled for it)

http://pdfcast.org/pdf/2006-vauxhall-astra-owners-manual-operation-safety-and-maintenance

PAGE (267 or 265)

but it seems yanking the fuses for the radio (FUSE number 35 and 36) seemed to fix it (been a few days and no flat battery) -

It maybe an intermitent fault, in which case i'll have it looked into, but as garages charge an arm and a leg i'd give this solution a go and if your battery is good all you need to do is remove the fuses and put them back after say a minute or so)
