Re: Was I the Last One to Figure Out HD Radio on 8.4?

Speaking of the HD radio... when I hit the HD button it does sound better but the volume goes up and down on its own. I've switched the "Auto Volume" to off and no change.

That's strange I never noticed that happening

Re: Was I the Last One to Figure Out HD Radio on 8.4?

i wont be... especially since you can just play pandora (and other streaming services) through USB

they need to make the access cheaper or provide something REALLY good, worth keeping.

I wish Chrysler would have waited a few more months for Sierra wireless to come out with their sprint 4g M2M module then they could have offered so many more services with uconnect and they would run at good speeds. Stock tip buy lots of Sierra wireless stock. Gm and a few other manufacturers will have the 4G module in all their new stuff very soon. If black berry was smart they should buy out Sierra wireless IMO

Re: Was I the Last One to Figure Out HD Radio on 8.4?

The truth about Sirius is that it never really sounds "good" in any car. The music is compressed to 64 kbps which - if you know about music bitrates - is really low. Some channels broadcast even lower, so some will sound worse than others. The reason for this is limited available satellite bandwidth. A quick Google search will show a general distaste for satellite radio by anyone who cares about the audio quality of their music. For those that don't care, it doesn't seem to be a concern and they can live with it.

Also note that in a higher-quality audio system, the imperfections of Sirius are going to be more evident when switching from an input like your ipod with high quality tracks on it.
