Jvc Kd-hdr1 - Page 5

post #121 of 128
Thank you very much for the reply. Yes, it was loss of power that I suspect may have caused the problem. We were out of town last weekend. When we returned home Sunday I found a dead battery on my Chevrolet Silverado and since then I can no longer select EXT IN once again. I did finally find out how to re-set the radio and the problem was the same as before and the solution was the same.

I've had a JVC KD-HDR1 in the car for over 5 years now.

The display disappointed tonight. I thought the display was saying 10:53 (pm).

But, instead, it was displaying 105.3 (FM). So when I pulled up into Whatburger to get some breakfast taquitos, the clerk said I'd have to wait about 30 minutes, because the time was actually 10:35.

JVC could have made those displays a little more idiot proof, for the over 50 crowd, that wear glasses to drive, to see thing clearly far away. What that means, is things up close, like the display of the receiver, are just slightly blurred, when waering my driving glasses. And that slight blur was just enough to not see the "." in 105.3, so it appeared to me as 1053 = 10:53, but alas it wasn't.

To adjust the Bass & Treble to my likeing is a multi-step pain with the JVC, What ever happend to a Bass/Treble Dial ? ? ? Sometimes I want to change the treble or the bass in the middle of a song. And it's different with radio vs. CD, and studio CD vs. live CD, or even a bootleg CD. Where is JVC meeting the customer's needs ? ? ? ?

As for AM & FM presets, first, I do not need 18 FM presets. But I do need more than 6 AM presets!!!!

The other big gripe I have this JVC product, is that it does NOT hold in memory HD-2 or HD-3 settings. So EVERY time I want to listen to an HD-2 or an HD-3 station, I have to first tune into the HD-1 station, and then I have to push up to get the HD-2 station. The JVC presets are useless to get directly the HD-2 and HD-3 stations. However, MY Radio Shack Accurian HD Tabletop radio does hold HD-2 and HD-3 stations in it's presets.

I LOVE the volume knob on the JVC because, pressing it, does -not- engage other function, unless I first press a mode button. I hated the Pioneer Supertuner of the 70's because, if you went to turn the volume up on a nice part of song, you could actully turn the unit off, when you were just trying to get more volume!

At least this early edition JVC unit has the push button presets, as the newer versions do not. I am considering upgrading my HDR1 to either a Pioneer or Kenwood model, as they have presets and supposedly a more sensitive HDRadio tuner. And wish we had a Whataburger to pull up into here in the Carolinas.

I got rid of mine, simply for the lack of RDS capability.

Five and a half years later, I am still using my KD-HDR1 as well, but it is in my truck now. My car has the old Sony CDX-MP70 (for decent MP3 disc playing) with a Visteon Zoom add-on HD Radio tuner. One of the reasons I use that tuner is its ability to display RDS information.

The JVC does indeed suffer from a lack of traditional tone controls, but just getting a complete HD Radio for the price of an add-on module alone was a big reason to buy this unit. I have not bought any non-HD devices since then.

I just swapped out batteries in my pickup and, of course, I had to resurrect this post. Also, is anybody here using this to control their iPod Touch? My son is now driving this and he might like being able to control his iPod Touch through the JVC KD-HDR1.

Seven years to the day since JVC released their first single DIN entry head unit and i still have mine going strong. I'm sure that many improvements have emerged. My original works fine in the house as a backup unit/tuner while the Walmart available model with the slightly boosted HD sensitivity has worked in my vehicles for as long as I have needed them to. Anybody here kept theirs in the fold ( I mean if traded for something different, still being used by family members??
