My radio head unit is a DPX701 and the display reads "waiting" much of the time. It will intermittantly show the song title and/or artist but then will go back and just diaplay "waiting". Sometimes it will work properly for several minutes. I can not determine a difference due to direction traveling, traveling or stopping, temperature, etc. When I change channels, it will usually show the display for a second and then revert back to "waiting". I dont know if it is an antenna issue or an issue with the tuner. My head unit seems to display properly in all other source modes. The audio is not affected by this. It sounds great and is working properly. I need information on what to do to fix the problem.
I have a DNX7120 with a Sirius KCA-BT200 and it is doing the same thing. When I turn the truck on , the song title, artist, channel will not show up. If it does work then it will play one song then every song after that it shows the first song on the display. I thought this was a Kenwood issue. Maybe it is a Sirius issue?
I actually RMA'ed the unit back to directed electronics, took over 3 weeks to get the new one back after about 7 calls waiting on hold for the warranty department. I hooked it up, and still have the same problem.. I did find that if you leave it on channel 184 (Weather/emergency) for about 10 minutes, it forces it to go back to normal for about 2 days. Then, back to Waiting, Waiting, Waiting. Kenwood has no idea about this happening. I was hoping someone had performed this "firmware" update on the unit, and could post where to download it.
I believe it's actually a firmware issue with the SIR-KEN1. I havethe same setup and have the same exact problem. I have to cycle thru my "SRC" button and get back to Sirius for it to work. Not a happy camper. I read on the Sirius Backstage forums about the firmware, although I have written Directed Electronics (SIR-KEN1 manufacturer) and never received a response.

What do you mean by "fix" the display, is it not showing it? If so- my Nissan Altima has not been displaying Sirius XM Title and Artist for months. After much searching of the internet, I finally found an answer that worked! Just be sure to write down your radio/sirius presets before you reset the radio - it'll clear them all (and the time). The answer is here- http://incodesystems.com/Troubleshoot/Cars/RadioInitialize.htm
Press the up/down button, then DISPLAY to show what item you want to see (Song Title / Artist / Channel Name). Also, there are settings under MENU for your display options as well. Go to the MENU Settings to set how you want to see your display. Okay? Let me know if you need more help. John
You check your songs from your computer first; Right click on one of songs, select Properties, select Summary tab (check Artist, Album Title, and Title). If they are there, you should update new firmware (search SANDISK FORUM from google). If they are empty, it's right for device display the filename.
seems to me your l,e,d display/screen has gone which is why you dont get your titles showing,and quite possible the unit has done its time and you may just have to replace it sorry,,hope that clears that up for you ,,goodluck.
go through your itunes and select her songs... next to title and album
and time on itunes you should see artist, if its not there right click
on the title bar and select artist, if it is there select all songs
right click and edit info, then just retype MIA in artist...
it was either not there or not reading correctly

Kenwoods are awesome. Read the manual, sometimes it gets confused with the Folder trees, if you have to many it goes crazy. It could also be the way the disk is burned, and how the songs are named. I beleive in display options too you can click how things are displayed i.e. folder, artist, song name, title, time. Read your manual.
