Question about Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Questions about my KENWOOD DDX512 RECEIVER.

I recently purchased one and took it to my local installer.
i also wanted him to install the Kenwood HD Radio tuner along with
Kenwood Sirius Radio tuner (with proper adapters ofcourse).
The installer during installation told me he can not connect both the Sirius
and HD Radio tuner to the unit and there is only connection spot for one of them onthe unit. H efurther told me i need a switch to be able to have both tuners connected to my DDX512. He made some calls and told me that Kenwood supposedly is designing the switch box needed.
Please let me know how to resolve this issue??
Also wanted to know where is the USB connection on DDX512,
since i was told it's on back of the unit !!
So if the unit is installed then i have to disconnect it and take it out to use USB feature on it ????

Waiting for your reply. Thanks.

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.

CANNOT TURN ON DDX512. IT WAS ON AND ALL THE SUDDEN IT WONT COME BACK ON. HOW DO I GET IT TO COME BACK ON ?


1. Check the fuse at the radio and in the vehicles fuse box
2. Check the wiring of the radio to ensure nothing has come loose/disconnected
3. Remove the radio and test it on another power source to ensure it is working properly.

If it's not the fuse (Step 1) I recommend visiting a quality local Car Audio specialist and getting them to assist you.

Kenwood VR-405


more info would be nice. If you're using optical, make sure its securely in both the tv and your vr-405 receiver. I have owned the vr-405 since 2000 and i just purchased a sony 32xbr6. HDMI into the TV, optical out to the receiver, it sounds amazing!
