    The only way I can get HD channels is if I was standing still AND touching the HD radio box.

    I actually just bought a powered aftermarket antenna yesterday and was going to see if that made a difference. Going to do a pre-lim install today after work.
    definitely lemme know how that goes.

    well I got everything working and really enjoyed what I heard (pens game last night - that was a letdown from what I caught). I noticed that on the box from crosslakessales the visteon hd receiver had a bestbuy sticker for $200 on it. I'm beginning to question whether the recievers were obtained legally or what...

    Mine had a best buy sticker on it also but no price. Mine looked like the box had been opened but everything inside looks new and was still wrapped in plastic. The seller has a ton of them listed along with a ton of other items and great feedback so Im sure he obtained them legally. Perhaps a sell off in an area with no HD signals?

    Worked out great! Got all my distant radio reception again. I'm kinda too far away to get a decent HD radio signal from my favorite local stations, but I still get the analog signal as good as the OEM HU.

    I picked up a cheapy $15 flat blade antenna from my local kragen. I could probably get even better reception if I ponied up more dough on a more quality amplified antenna.

    Hope that helps.

    have a pic of the type of antenna you got? I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a signal booster jcwhitney has for 7 bucks.

    I used this one.



    Metra universal amplified antenna kit.

    Just did a test comparison reception-wise w/ the OEM HU vs. the HD radio+antenna and its ALMOST as good as the HU.

    Head towards the signal about 1/2-1 mile from my home and reception and clarity was the same. Drive 2 more miles in and then the HD transmission comes in and it sounds great.

    Here is exactly that, based on my development snapshot for shock v6. I included the OSK and number OSK so you can type in frequency or use the save list. There are still a few commands I am learning but this will power on and tune your HD receiver and give info about the channels.

    To tell you the truth my head unit sucks as far as reception goes so this tuner stomped it hands down.
