Was I the Last One to Figure Out HD Radio on 8.4?
 
That's fine if I am - I'm getting older, fatter, slower, and dumber every day! This is the first HD radio I've ever had; was listening to an FM HD station the other day (HD has amazing audio quality BTW; much better than Sirius) and while just goofing around touched the "HD" icon on the touchscreen - all of a sudden the word "Buffering..." shows up, and more channels appear on the HD station I was listening to! I had no idea that HD stations could broadcast multiple channels on one frequency.

The satellite radio sounds terrible on our systems IMO. I don't know why my other car and past Sirius devices sound so much better than in the jeep

Nope, apparently I'm the last one :D Went to go give it a try and the HD option is grayed out for me, why would that be?

Lol Chrysler wants more of your money :D
A couple things could cause it to be greyed out. The station your radio was on might not have been an hd station? Try another station and report back

^^ yeah just keep hitting the "next" button until the HD button can be pushed

an yeah, the SXM really does not sound very good. Its not horrible, but it should be a LOT better

HD also has a very limited coverage area. Generally, if you live outside of an even moderately metropolitan area, you won't get HD radio. Where I live I don't have it but where I work I do. I don't like that when you shut the vehicle off and start it back up it defaults to regular radio, not the HD station you were listening to.

Even AM radio sounds better than Sirius to me!

And kill the DJ's on Sirius music channels. I'm paying for this. I want music not talk.

some people pay JUST for the talk lol.

I dont think there is enough variety... there are too many news and sports stations. and there is no easy way to browse. My old XM radio, would show you want was playing as you looked. Not just the station name. That was 9 years ago! Why cant we do this now?

Good question StaticFX. Sirius XM should be pissed over how Chrysler chose to implement their services and the sound quality coming from the uconnect. Id love to see the numbers on how many uconnect people keep their XM after the free trial runs or even uconnect after that runs out even with the apps working.
