    I have a JVC reciever. (RX-6030VBK) I can't get the radio to work. There's no noise on auto mute and when I switch it off I just get noise. What do I need to do to get it to work?

    Do you have the antenna connection hooked up?

    Yes you need an antenna. I couldn't, througha brief google hunt, find a good rear panel picture, so I don't know if you have a little coax outlet thing for an antenna, or the dual wire getup. If you bought this new, it was most likely included in the packaging. Most likely you'll need a "T" antenna thing, a small wire that you either connect directly to two small terminals, or that you connect to a little adapter, that fits onto an F-type coax fitting (my marantz receiver is like this). Either way, you need to find an antenna for FM.

    AM usually has a loop antenna that comes with most receivers that you hook in to the rear.

    Hopefully that helps, I'm not an antenna guru, I just know how to hook them up as usually supplied w/a receiver.

    Ok. I looked at the back and saw where it plugs in (it's a 75 ohm connection). The reason I didn't know that I needed one is because I have a Onkyo reciever that gets great reception without an antenna. And that receiver is old so I figured a newer one would be more advanced, bottom of the line or not.

    Anyways, I went to radio shack and bought a 75 ohm FM Radio antenna and it won't plug in. I'm starting to dislike JVC.

    Chris:

    manual

    Bobby:

    the FM and AM antennae should be supplied, according to the manual. They'll likely be simple and rather crappy and cheap but that's par for the course for almost any antenna that is supplied with a reciever.
