KDHfan, check my post of tv reception. If enough of us call FR maybe they'll get the idea there's a problem.

I will. Anyone have a contact name/number? We might as well all call the same person.

Don't have the number handy, but I talked to Roger in the warranty dept. I had originally called them about a possible skylight recall but I was ok on that. Try to get you the number tomorrow but I found it on this forum somewhere.

Just a suggested idea, take a bare wire, connect it to metal on the back of the radio. The other end, connect to metal side (ground). If reception gets better, you have a bad or floating ground on it.

i just went into this same problem with my Cherokee.My problem is where the antenna plugs into the stereo unit itself.If i wiggle the lead it gets better.It seems in my case the automotive type antenna end that slides into the stereo is not a tight fit.Not sure how im gonna deal with it yet.One end is the automotive type antenna end and the other end of the cable is the female screw on coaxle type that screws into a splitter .Unless i can find someone to make me up a new one i think its gonna be tricky to find one to buy.

SJones42, is the main problem with the GT stereo unit or the tv. The way I understand the post its a problem with the stereo. I just tried my tv reception problem going thru the stereo and when I turn on an led light the signal on the tv still goes out.
Stereo seems to function great.

Seems those of us with genesis Radios are having similar problems,(2014 PUMA 30RKSS) the sound is great playing a CD, but I only get one radio station and that is static at best. The subwoofer shakes the entire cabinet which is kinda of annoying s well. Dealer said pull the radio out check the connections, known of which were tight. I've improved the TV reception greatly and now I get 2 static filled radio stations! I was considering an aftermarket antenna, or a longer antenna to see if it makes a diff. By the way the old trailer(2003 Sandpiper) I pulled in radio from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Youngstown and Toronto! with the manufactures antenna. Currently parked in Andover, Ohio

Apparently I never used the FM feature of my radio before the other day. I'd read about other people having issues, but didn't try it myself. I'm in the Baltimore/DC area - the radio stations come in strong. Of my 3 "favorite" stations, only one in the came in without static. Sitting in my house with my bookshelf radio and in my car/truck, I get these stations just fine.

Guess I'm going to go seriously looking for the cord that RodeoGeorge suggested. Unfortunately, the one place I found - it was $2 for the cord and $10 for shipping.
