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.

Hi...
Some cable companies dont put the FM band on cable and some others put an FM trap (which kills the FM band) in line with the cable.
One of those is your problem.
You'll need to buy a FM antenna

What is the video single output VHF FM UHF 12db


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.

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.

How to add an iPod Input into a Stock Radio?


<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><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod to an FM transmitter, if you connect headphones to the iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the FM transmitter to your cigarette lighter to power and then to the transmitter. <br /> <p><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><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 />

My tao xm2go unit is transmitting a very weak fm signal to my car radio. I can barely hear the audio.


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.

My brother gave me the receiver, it is a AV AVR 1905 Denon do not have the antenna so all I get is static.


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.

Can't receive cable signal


You may have to go into setup and ensure that the input is 'CABLE', If you have an 'INPUT' (or TV/VCR) button on the remote, try it.

Hello all;;;;;; i have a pioneer vsx-9500s,,,,the problem is i ran cable to my reciever so my fm radio will work but it doesn't,,,,,,,,i checked the cable on a tv and it worked ,,,,so i know the line is...


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!
