1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Have tried two different headphones, one bing low end and one being high end noise cancelling. I open the FM app and it says loading FM radio please wait, this is all it does! I open the notice bar and tap that icon it opens up and I can change stations but there is no sound.

    I have checked to make sure all volumes are up.

    Thanks in advance.

    I think you need the specific headset to get the FM radio to work, not just any headset.

    I had the FM radio working with a set of standard earbuds and also plugged it in to my 2.1 stereo speaker system and it worked then too.

    Mine has worked with a few different headphones. I just plugged them in and started up the FM app. If you want it to play through the rear speaker, hit menu and choose that setting.

    I'm using a generic pair of Phillips Earbuds, and FM worked perfectly and scanned 14 stations on the first try from inside my house (where I get fairly horrible reception) in the Kansas City Area.
