RE: USB All Files Not Being Read??? PROBLEM SOLVED..

It is a Jensen and I am sure it has something to do with the quality of the player. I wish there was a way to just put the songs in one great big file... Maybe I'll work on that...... Thanks

RE: USB All Files Not Being Read??? PROBLEM SOLVED..

Are they in folders as artist, album or all songs just on the parent folder. Some devices will not look in folders for files they have to be in the parent directory for the device to see them. You could try that. Correct. However BETTER "devices" should have no problem reading files contained in folders provided ALL the folders are in the ROOT of the storage device AND there is no sub folders (aka "nesting" within those folders on the root. In other words your drive (we will call it "G:\" for reference) should look like this.. G:\album1 G:\album2 G:\album3 and so on. It should NOT look like this (nested).. G:\album\album1 G:\album\album2 G:\album\album3 and so on. Also player devices may have some limitations in file name and folder size AND the amount of files allowable that it will play. Some player devices will also have limitations on the max folders (often 99 folders). Your storage device should be FAT32, many do not play well with NTFS (XP/VISTA/WIN7/WIN8 formated drives or Extended FAT or any other non FAT32 partitions.. Your storage device should also be ONE partition. Jensen name doesn't really ooze "quality" so I would bet that it may need ALL the files on the ROOT of the storage drive (in other words NO FOLDERS).. I have Clarion car stereos and they have no problem dealing with multiple folders on the root.

USB All Files Not Being Read??? PROBLEM SOLVED..

Ok here is the situation.... I have a in Dash Jensen Model JRV 212T and for some reason it only plays the first album on a home made music USB. It plays fine on all other devices I have just not the in Dash Unit..... Any Ideas? The USB is great it has most of the OLD Country songs on it and we want to be able to listen to the whole thing....

RE: New Stereo

The Jensen is a direct size replacement for Concertone and better quality. I have one with AM/FM/CD/DVD/USB input/HDMI....works great. When replaceing a Concertone they have a wiring adaptor that eliminates the need to cut and splice anything

RE: TV for my TC

I have never found Jensen to be anything but junk. You can do much better by purchasing your own. Those are wise words. Get yourself a decent TV. Any major brand is fine.

TV for my TC

Looking for a TV for my Lance 865 Truck Camper and would like your recommendation. Lance offers a Jensen 19" LED HDTV 12V that's shock mounted and made for a RV. Is this a good unit? I might go a little bigger but not much. Maybe 22"? Definitely 12V and HD. And what articulating mount works best? Thanks for your help. Rick

RE: Simple Q: playing files through 3.5mm cable

Hogwash... (to "mismatch") We're not talking about 1000w sound systems here needing to drive 4 ohm speakers at 30' It's wire with mini's on both ends running at line level, period. There is ZERO difference in the $.99 cable vs. the pure copper oxygen free BS hype that the audiophiles try and sell you. Look anywhere else but the poor little cable. That Jensen is by far the weakest link in the chain. Yes exactly my point. I didn't say for OP to go out and purchase a $50 cable. I said even if he did, likely very little sound quality increase. The unit is likely the case same in my situation thus i'm replacing mine as well. Oh but there is a difference in the .99 cent cable vs the other. The .99 cent cable usually falls apart quicker where the wire meets the connection edge as they are usually cheaply made. People get so touchy on these forums.

RE: Simple Q: playing files through 3.5mm cable

Impedance Mismatch will flatten your audio.. Audio out on the Driod is around 8 to 32 ohms, Input on the Jensen six hundred or so. though normally low to High works well.. It is the other way that goes flat.You would NEVER hear any errors in the playback driving a Jensen with car standard (barely) speakers. This is not a Macintosh driving Langerton reference monitors. The ONLY thing that cable could cause is loss of common return (ground) resulting in a strange summing/ phase cancellation loss.

RE: Simple Q: playing files through 3.5mm cable

How does it sound if you plug headphones into the headphone jack? Could be your phone's jack is faulty. Typically a smartphone has a TRRS type jack (extra ring for microphone), sometimes it doesn't line up correctly with a TRS (stereo) plug and you get poor sound quality. OR On your Jensen, can you adjust the input level for the aux in jack? Could be the smartphone isn't putting out enough voltage. I have that issue on an old smart phone connected to an amplifier on some outdoor speakers, output on the smartphone is in the millivolt range (for headphones), amplifier expects 1-5v input.

RE: Rand McNally or Magellan gps

We use two of them...the built-in one in the coach (Jensen, I believe they use the Navteq maps) and a Good Sam Rand McNally 7" unit. I use the Good Sam site to plan trips and then download them to the Rand unit. I use the two of them together...if they don't agree, we get out the tried and true maps. The Good Sam Rand McNally unit has been right more times than the Jensen... The Good Sam Rand unit is easy on the eyes, we like the display of turns and route changes and at 7" it only takes a glance to "get the picture".

RV Surround system

I have been searching high and low to find out what other options there are available and some of the information is limited or I am not looking in the right spot. I have a 2006 Forrest River Sandpiper TH 5er. It has 5.1 speakers mounted in the ceiling with a POS Concertone ZX500 which is malfunctioning to say the least. I have done some searching regarding mutlimedia for the RV and the only two options I have seen are the Jensen AWM975 and the Concertone 3.0. Although the Jesnen is wired for HDMI output it is not wired for 5.1 surround sound. The Concertone has all that is needed, but the $700 price tag is a bit much. What other options are there? I am not too sure 12 volts is a necessity since I have wired my trailer wiring for inverter power. So I guess this points me to using a home system. Has anyone installed a a home theater receiver in their RV? Pictures?

RE: Smart Phone Remote App

I cannot believe no one has asked this. I have searched the forums and found nothing. My RV did not come with the remote for the Jensen CD/DVD/MP3 AM/FM Stereo. There is an IR window, so it must be compatible. My question is, has anyone found a smartphone remote control app to run these items? no such animal exists However there is hope. WHY: Smart phones do not support Infra Red, they have no IR hardware and thus can not replace an I/R Remote. older PDA's however DO have I/R communications ability (Go back about 10 years) and there was indeed a I/R Remote app for those Finally there are Remotes in the 50-150 dollar range where you can download device specific programs and USB transfer to the remote.. They are true Universal" and many of them can duplicate ALL the functions of the OEM remote... ANY OEM Remote (Save Dish Remote #2 Remote 1 yes.. 2.. Well ... Some of them perhaps #2 is RF not I/R)) Dude; read the thread. THERE ARE SMART PHONES THAT HAVE BUILT IN IR! And you can buy IR / Bluetooth bridges for those that don't.

RE: Smart Phone Remote App

... I tried that first... it's for TV's only...you have to pick your cable/satellite provider and go from there. The writeup says "... the Galaxy S5 can be used to control all types of devices and brands available on the market.". I guess that's misleading then if it only supports TVs. I would have guessed that it would have similar capabilities to the Remote app that came with my LG G2 phone where it supports many audio & video devices (It actually lists Jensen under audio devices) and even has a "Learn" mode that let's you create custom remotes.

RE: Smart Phone Remote App

Thanks everyone... i have an app, it's basic..it turns the jensen on and off and changes the radio stations.... not sure if i can get it to work the DVD..but I'll play while on vacation. it cost 3.99 with a lifetime money back guarantee. It's for Galaxy phones called Galaxy Universal Remote. Since the Galaxy S5 includes IR it also comes with an app called Smart Remote. You could have saved the $3.99.
