Question about sirius radio for kenwood cd player

I ordered the kenwood headunit off Ebay as well as the Sirius adapter for it. On the hideaway unit there's no slot indicated for the sirius radio. Do I just plug it into the RGB slot where I'd plug the ipod into? The only other RGB slot is for the Navigation area. Please help.

You can try it, but I think you might need a media expander/controller. I see some going for around $100 on Ebay. It allows you to add and interface many component to your deck. But make sure the deck ready to control it. You can tell by the label on the deck(Ipod ready, XM ready, Sirius ready, Changer ready....ect). Goodluck.

Where do you connect the data cable...on back of the stereo and where else?


The data cable (IP Bus) can connect to several different component designed for your unit, i.e. xm/sirius tuner, HD radio tuner, CD changer, etc.

Hideaway brain unit on my kenwood KVT-617 doesn't work


My KVT-617 display unit was stolen out of my dash, but they neglected to snag the items under the rear seat: the "brain" hideaway unit, the HD radio receiver, the 10 disc CD changer, the navigation unit, and the powered subwoofer.
Everything was replaced via the insurance except the sub because the new system was not compatible with the old components. Make me an offer on the items you want!

Questions about my KENWOOD DDX512 RECEIVER.


the usb port it's a cable coming from the back of the unit and has to routed somewhere where you can get to it.
I know that if you install the bluetooth unit, you can connect another device to it because has a pass through connection.
if you have an earlier unit(serial#8020...) you will most likely have issues with the HD. doesn't hold the memory presets after shut down. Service dept. has to change an EROM inside the DDX.
sirius won't become xm pretty soon?
I own a DNX5120. I'm not an expert, just another owner. Our units have a new firmware 1.40, if you don't have it yet, download it from Kenwood. Bluetooth also has one.

Trying to add more audio equipment to my Pioneer Nav stereo


The Avic N2 is only XM ready not Sirius ready like the N3, which is SAT ready(both XM and Sirius). If you must have your Sirius the only option left for you is use the rear input on the hide away unit but you won't have it on the touchscreen. There is one more expensive option by have your N2 hardware upgrade to N3, some Ebayer have that service offer for about $275. It's done by replace a surface mounted chip with 70 plus leads. That would take some expert de-solder and solder skill with a solder torch or
a tech's heat gun. I can do it but I don't know which chip it is. I have an immaculate N3 for sale on Ebay. Maybe you could sell your N2 and buy an N3. I usually get about $550-$650 for an N2 depend on the condition. Hope that I did some help. You can call me at 801-414-4566, I would do anything I can. Goodluck.

Sirius radio


From my experience, you can not integrate the vehicle Satellite equipment into aftermarket audio pieces. You will have to buy a JVC specific Sirius tuner or use an Fm modulated unit.

Source Keeps Switching To Standbye


There's nothing in the wiring that could cause this problem; sounds like a fault in the faceplate. I would say the unit needs to be serviced.
