Question about Alpine CDA-7897 CD Player

2 Answers

XM Radio Receiver

The User's guide for the CDA 7897 states that this car receiver can can receive XM radio with an optional XM receiver. Could you recommend an XM receiver that is compatible with this receiver understanding I would prefer to wire it direct and use the existing display in the radio for control rather than use an FM modulator or external (an separate) device and display. Is this even possible with this model receiver? Thanks

Go to www.walmart.com and type in the search box XM Radio. Walmart carries a XM Docking Station that is capatable with most units. FYI though XM has merged with Sirrus so XXM will still work but will soon be unbuyable.

XM radio tunes to random station when turned on


There is an internal battery to hold the station and presets. It is probably no good. Either that or there is something very wrong with the unit.

Here is what I recommend. Call XM. Tell them your receiver is not longer functioning correctly and that you are thinking about canceling your service because you don't have a receiver. They will then offer you a receiver because they don't make much money on them, the make their money on the service.

that's how you get a new free satilite radio.

I don'tknow how to use the satellite radio...


Got this off the crutchfiel web site.

Item #700XMSON1 $129.98 This XM Direct 2 package includes everything you need to add XM Satellite Radio to your compatible Sony receiver: an XM Mini-Tuner, a CNP2000UC universal adapter, and a Sony connector cable. The Mini-Tuner connects to the universal adapter, then you use the connector cable to hook up the adapter to your Sony receiver.
Use your home computer to program the universal adapter for your Sony receiver — you can reprogram this adapter to work with another brand in the future. Once connected, you'll be able to change channels and see programming information on your stereo's display. You can also use the included XM Mini-Tuner with your XM-ready home receiver or in another vehicle with a compatible dock.
A computer running Windows XP and Internet Explorer is required. The unit is not compatible with Windows Vista.
Note: A subscription to XM is also required — learn about XM's programming. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Portable reception may vary by location. If you have questions about the proposed XM/SIRIUS merger, read the XM Customer Promise. To view this file, you will need the Adobe Acrobat PDF reader.

FINDING A RADIO FOR A SEMI TRUCK


Those measurements are a standard single DIN automotive radio.
You need to find a "XM ready" or "With XM controls" radio and install a separate XM receiver box. For example this would be the in dash deck:  http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/Item/Main.aspx?o=p&showAll=N&g=300&i=158XRCA350&tp=5684 And this is the XM receiver: http://www.xm-radio-satellite.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=3951
I would suggest finding an in dash receiver that also does HD radio as well as XM.

Do you have to run in AUX to get XM Radio? Your receiver and unit sound like its ok. This could be a problem with your provider. Contact your provider and their tech dept can help you organise a solution. Is your radio, XM ready?

CDA - 9833 AI-Net issue


If the radio was still plugged in when you cut it (such a BAAAADDD idea....) it likely shorted the data pins to the power pins which fried the AI net processor. There is no fix for that. It's toast.
