Re: Can't Get A Radio Signal When I Connect A Cox Cable
I agree with 3522, Cox needs to put the FM band via cable. There is already a market called HD radio and HD radio requires special FM antennas not behind the receiver type 75 ohm wire lead antennas. HD radio needs alot of attention especially for homes and apartments that will not allow outdoor antennas to be put up outdoors. Without a outdoor FM antenna, the signals for HD drop out due to noise and intermodulation and weak signal spots. Cable FM can take care of this digital medium bringing in the signal in best as a huge outdoor antenna or connected to the FM radio station with HD.

That sounds like the description of a broadband amplifier. It likely has "F" type (cable-coax) connectors and a power cord.
Commonly used to increase the signal level of TV cable to compensate for inserting a signal splitter, or in some cases to increase the signal level from an antenna, typically outdoor TV or FM radio antenna, so it is connected between the signal source (antenna, or cable) and receiver with antenna as input and receiver connected to the output of this little box. The gain (amplification) it provides is 12 dB, so the output is more than 3 times the input.
Many car stereos have more new connections that MP3 playerslike the iPod can be connected and played through the stereo. For new carradio, you only need to connect the device and the MP3 player. If you have anold stereo, connect your iPod or connect a 3.5 mm stereo cable or FMtransmitter. Connect iPod directly to the stereo with a stereo cable willresult in better sound quality on the FM transmitter, which can be interruptedor static signal.
AUX 1. Find an AUX port. The AUX is a hole, only small to belocated on your car radio face. (The size is perfect for connecting headphonesor an auxiliary cable.)
2. Connect the 3.5 mm stereo cable into the hole in front ofyour car.
3. Connect the other end into the hole stereo AUX jack /headphone jack on top of your iPod.
4. Connect your iPod.
5. Activate the AUX input. This will be different for eachcar. You may need to field through your input options (e.g., FM, AM, CD, etc.)to access the AUX. Or you may need for your stereo pressing the Menu button.Then, the options for auxiliary input field to the AUX input as possible.
6. Find a song on your iPod and press the Play button whenthe auxiliary input is activated. If you do not hear anything, make sure thevolume on the iPod device and radio. If the iPod is playing your song, you'llsee the song progresses on the iPod screen.
FM Transmitter 1. Find an FM transmitter that is compatible with the iPod.So let your FM transmitter near your car radio.
2. Connect the iPod to the FM transmitter.
3. Tune the radio to your car radio has a frequency thatonly static, then the vote of the same frequency channel using the buttons +and -.
4. Connect your iPod. Then a number and press"Play." Make sure to turn all your volume on your iPod. You should beable to use his music. If not, find a new frequency until you find one thatworks with the iPod and the transmitter.
<p>You can add an iPod to a stock radio in your car, even if
the plant does not have an auxiliary input or iPod input using a specific
number of iPod car accessories. One such accessory is a cassette adapter that
plugs into your iPod as a headset, but ends on a cassette tape to your stock
cassette radio. However, not all cars have cassette players, thus more
accessible to the FM transmitter. <br />
<p>1. Connect your iPod to an FM transmitter, if you connect
headphones to the iPod. <br />
<p>2. Connect the FM transmitter to your cigarette lighter to
power and then to the transmitter. <br />
<p>3. Press up and down on the transmitter to the FM
transmitter to change, you will pass the signal to your radio. Choose a station
that is not a radio station on it so you do not interrupt the signal. <br />
<p>4. Set your stock radio to the channel you selected on your
transmitter and then play the songs on your iPod. You will see the songs on
your iPod through the radio station you selected. <br />
You likely need to directly connect. In most cases the FM transmitter is too week to broadcast through FM stations, and a direct connection will clear up your issue. It could be as simple as connecting via an Auxiliary cable or Cassette Adapter. If you don't have the ability to use one of those, you can get an Auxiliary Input Adapter. Another solution would be an external FM Transmitter, with a larger range.
Test and confirm if the amplifier is working with an imput source. If the fault is only a loss of FM/AM signals then try and connect an external antennae based on the signal strength in your area to confirm if there is a fault in the radio sectiion. You can conect a set of wires to the FM loop connection and keep it up , if the signal strength is very good it will give you the signal after a search. Memorise, set an external antennae with a proper setting to get the best clarity.
Carl- If you are sending a Line Level Audio signal to your ONKYO RECEVER, from your Sirus RCA cable Output, IE, the CD input, the VCR input, the AUX in, ETC. No Need to have the RECEIVER in the FM mode, you are just needing amplificaton of the sound signal or Sirus signal sound.
Nonsense. FM is included in MOST tv cable subscriptions- make sure your subscription includes this service. Do you have another receiver/tuner to test with?
Check all the connections between the cable entrance and your tuner; eliminate all splitters for testing. If you can get another tuner to work on your cable, it may be time to check into your tuner-
There is no difference in signal level between tv and fm- your receiver is not gonna burn up! If it has a 75-ohm cable input, use it!
I had the same problem. I could get an analog audio signal but no digitial signal. My problem was with the cable box setting. I have Cox Cable. With the Cable remote I went to settings/settings/Audio out and selected HDMI. Worked like a charm
