    TV Tuner

    You might be able to change the country code in the menu or the settings if you have access to VCDS, from my TV in Audi days you could select the country from the MMI, but I cannot remember how. Japan did have its own version of MMI which was nothing like the rest of the world several years...

    Radio update

    Search the forums and look for a tutorial on the conversion, many people have done this on an A3, there are some caveats when changing from concert II to concert III, the antenna configuration is different and you may need a Y adaptor to fix the HF/ZF to HF/HF change on the radio. Also wiring...

    RNS-E no rear sound please help

    The rear speakers should be driven by an amp in an Audi, so the fronts are driven directly from the head unit and the rears via an amp, you need to find the factory amp and put it back into the wiring or try to use the the aftermarket rear amp/speakers setup.

    Can't unlock PIN for a Retrofit RNS-E on a 8P

    It is possible that the RNS-E was supplied with a hacked pin code. with the RNS-E mk2 you cannot change the DVD drive as it affects the pin, you could in the MK1 units. So what I found a long time ago was that if I upgraded the RNS-E on a hacked unit the pin no longer worked, the hack only...

    A4 B7 Avant Bose wiring loom

    Currently on a non bose system the front speakers are driven by the HU and a two channel amp drives the rears, in a BOSE system all speakers are driven from the amp, this means a rewire of the front preamp signals to the rear amp and the front speakers to the rear amp. Not the easiest of wiring...

    Bluetooth options for S3(8P) with RNS-E

    No sure if they are still available, but you could replace the CD player interface with a Dension GW100 for Audi and attach a 30 pin Ipod/bluetooth interface to it. This should allow you to control the Ipod from the steering wheel controls if you have them over bluetooth, cant remember the name...

    audi q7 4L replacement amp issue

    The tone test pushes a tone through each channel of the amplifier, so yes it tests each channel of the amp and speaker. As to why you are only getting rear channels, it sounds like CP, but you say that no CP is present.
