IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Danger
Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent
hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing
loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently
intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified
the following permissible noise level exposures:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
DURATION PER DAY (HOURS) 8 6 4 3 2 1
SOUND LEVEL (dB)
6.
7.
90 93 95 97 100 103
According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could
result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over
the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to
prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as
put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high
sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to
equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this
amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in
operation.

1. Antenna Input: Coax “F” connector brings in the signal input from the NuVo NV-T2FAA AM/FM or the NV-T2XAA XM active
antenna (pg. 11).
2. Aux. Input: This stereo RCA connector is enabled through the advanced menu options (pg. 14), and allows an additional
audio source to be connected and accessed through the tuner source selection.
3. Audio Output: A Stereo RCA output allows the tuner audio signal to be connected to an amplifier source, such as the NuVo
Simplese, Essentia, and Concerto audio distribution systems.
4. Trigger ON: This voltage output provides a constant 12 volts when the Tuner is turned on.
5. Audio Output: This is a second stereo output designed to work with a tip, ring, sleeve 3.5mm stereo connection.
6. IR Pass-Thru: This 3.5mm connection is used to link IR control between two or more components used in the same
installation.
7. IR Input: The single IR Input accepts a mono 3.5mm mono patch cable for receiving IR information from an external IR
receiver without the use of an external IR emitter.
8. NuVoNet : This RJ45 connection is used with one of the Peripheral Device inputs on the Concerto EZ Port (see pg. 20) to
enable direct one-to-one communication with the Concerto Display Pads.
10. RS232: This 9-pin DB9 connection allows serial communication with an external RS232 system. This may also be used for
downloading a configuration from your computer to the internal flash memory of the tuner.
11. AC Power: This connects the T2 with an AC power source. When plugged into a live AC outlet the blue power LED (Light
Emitting Diode) on the T2's front panel will remain lit. When neither tuner is on, the T2 is in standby mode and draws
less than 2 watts of power. The T2 power supply is universal and will operate at a voltage range from 110V to 240V.

I. Installing the NV-T2 Dual Tuner
Fig . 1
AUX IN
Each tuner has two audio output jacks. One is a stereo RCA
connection, and the other is a stereo 3.5mm mini. The RCA
output is an individual left and right channel connection made
with a standard RCA cable. The other end is connected to the
corresponding audio input on the back panel of the audio
amplifier. An example of this is one of the source inputs on the
back panel of a NuV0 audio distribution system, fig. 1.
The 3.5mm stereo output labeled “AUDIO OUTPUT” is also
available for system connection. Compatible cables are
available with the male mini connection on each end, or with a
stereo RCA connection on one end, fig. 2.

The T2 is designed for IR control via IR received by an audio
distribution system. In the NuVo Simplese or Essentia audio
distribution systems, the IR emitter outputs act as a repeater
to IR signals incident on the system keypads. The T2's wired IR
connector is a 3.5mm two-conductor (mono) jack labeled “IR
INPUT.” Using a mono mini-to-mini patch cable, connect the IR
emitter output of a Simplese or Essentia Main Unit to the IR
INPUT on the T2. The two tuners in the T2 respond to separate
IR codes, so the direct IR input replaces the need for external
IR emitters placed over the IR receiver windows on the front of
the unit, fig. 3. This connection is not used when using the
Concerto NuVoNet system. The NuVo Essentia and Simplese
systems are used for example, but the T2 is compatible with
any audio system that is capable of repeating IR.

AM/FM Antenna Input
Fig . 7
The T2 ships with a proprietary active AM/FM antenna. This
antenna is designed to work only with the NuVo T2 series
AM/FM tuners. It can be located up to 200 feet from the tuner
location, and we recommend 75-ohm RG 6 coaxial cable with a
standard F style connector on each end. Simply attach the
cable to the connector at the bottom of the antenna, and into
the “Antenna Input” on the T2, fig. 7. Once connected, the T2
should immediately receive broadcast signals and RDS (Radio
Data Service) when it is available.
The NuVo amplified
antenna can be located
up to 200 feet from the
T2 Tuner.
We recommend placing the antenna inside in an attic or as
high as possible for the best possible AM and FM reception,
fig. 8. A 2 meter (6 foot) pre-terminated coaxial cable is
provided with the tuner package for testing the antenna
connection or if you choose to place the antenna close to the
tuner location.

The proprietary active XM antenna shipped with the XM model
tuners is connected in the same way as the AM/FM antenna. A
single run of RG6 coaxial cable is necessary for the signal for
both XM tuners in the case of the dual XM model or AM/FM and
XM model. For best performance it is best to use a good quality
quad-sheilded cable.

Proper Location of the XM Antenna
Fig . 9
Location of the XM antenna is critical to proper performance.
There cannot be any obstructions between the antenna and the
southern sky. This means that any possible interference from
buildings, trees or other structures must be avoided.

available barrel
The most common location is mounted to the eve of the home’s
exterior. If you are using the eve as the location of the
antenna, be careful to locate it low enough that the roof over
hang does not obstruct the antenna from clear sky, fig. 10. Any
outside location will suffice. For best performance, the
antenna should be mounted vertically, and placed at
approximately a 45° angle. Again, see fig. 10. This angle is
closer to 50°or 60° if you are in the extreme southern portion
of the United States.

automatically tune up until it receives a good signal. You can
set the definition a good signal with the seek threshold
feature, fig. 13.
FM, AM, WX (Weather Band): All three available
bands are set the same way, but are adjusted
individually. Scroll with the Select knob to the
desired band and press the knob to select it. Once
selected, you can choose between five different
levels. High means the station needs to have a very
strong signal for the tuner to react. Low causes the
tuner to stop at any station with the slightest
measurable signal. The default is the middle setting.
This is an adjustment of the signal threshold. It sets
the minimum signal level necessary for tuning using
Seek or Scan.
The following menu selections are not necessary for standard
tuner operation, but do provide a deeper level of control for
those who need it. When you scroll to “Advanced Settings” in
the menu, pressing the Select knob then accesses the
following menu options:
Operating Mode
The T2 defaults to Stand-alone operation. This is the
appropriate mode if it is being used with anything
other than the NuVo Concerto System.
Concerto Source 1-6: This must be set for the
appropriate NuVo Concerto source input, if the T2 is
going to be used with Concerto's NuVoNet control
network (see pg. 20 Using the T2 with Concerto and
NuVoNet).
Regional Setup (AM/FM Use Only)
USA: This setting is optimized for the United States
and Canada.
European (Western): This setting is optimized for
Western Europe.
Australia: This setting is optimized for all of Australia.
New Zealand: This setting covers all of New Zealand.
These four settings cover most of the worldwide
tuning standards. For operation in countries outside
of these geographic regions, you may need to use the
advanced settings in the T2 Configurator software for
customizing the regional tuning standard (see pg. 24
T2 Configuration Software, Advanced Settings).
Fig. 13
Fine-Tuning (AM/FM Use Only)
The fine-tuning feature enables tuning with a smaller
frequency step to include more station frequency possibilities,
which may be used in areas allowing many low-power
broadcast stations.
FM: The standard tuning for North America and
Australia is .200 MHz steps, and the standard for
Europe and New Zealand is .100 MHz steps. Finetuning automatically drops the tuning steps to .05
MHz increments.
AM: The North America standard for AM tuning is in
10 kHz steps and Europe is 9 kHz. AM fine tuning goes
in 1 kHz steps.

Audio Settings
These selections are intended for AM, FM and XM stand-alone
applications. They should be left at default settings for NuVo
audio systems. These systems allow identical audio control on
a per-zone basis.
Bass EQ: Bass output can be adjusted +12 dB or down
to 12 dB. The default setting is flat. This feature is
useful for stand-alone use with an amplifier that does
not have bass EQ control. If you are using the T2 with a
NuVo audio distribution system, or another system
that allows for EQ control, you should leave the T2 set
at 0 dB (flat), fig 14.
Treble EQ: Treble can be adjusted the same as bass.
The level ranges from 12 dB to +12 dB and defaults at 0
dB. As with the bass setting, this should not be used
unless there is no external EQ capability, fig. 15.
Balance: Left and Right channel output can be
adjusted if desired. As with the EQ adjustments, this
feature should not be used when the T2 is used with
an audio system that already has EQ and balance
adjustment capability, fig. 16.
Output Level: The signal level from the T2 can be
adjusted up or down to match the input gain
characteristics of other audio equipment in the
system. The default setting is 0 dB and the range is 6
dB to +12 dB, fig. 17.

are outlined here.
Signal Status: This function is important to XM signal
reception. When the antenna is installed and plugged into the
T2 antenna input, follow the following submenus. These are
designed to insure that the antenna location is sufficient for
good signal reception.
Antenna: This display will either indicate OK or None.
OK means the tuner is detecting the presence of an
antenna.
Signal Strength: There are four displays for this
selection. They are none, weak, marg. , and good. You
want to adjust the antenna location so the display
indicates good reception.
Sat. 1: This indicates the percentage of error from the
first satellite. As long as the signal strength is good,
this should be between 90 and 100%.
Sat 2: This function is identical to Sat 1 and indicates
the percentage of error for the second satellite.
Terrestrial: Many areas have terrestrial signal
repeaters to boost the satellite signal. This is useful
where a satellite signal might be impeded. This menu
function shows the % of error in the terrestrial signal.
If the satellite signal is good, the terrestrial signal is
not necessary.

allows a total of 100 presets. The factory default is
two banks of presets, but more banks can be added or
deleted in the T2 Configurator software. Saving a
preset is done simply by tuning to a desired station
and pressing and holding one of the numeric buttons
until the display reads “Preset Saved.” Once a preset
is saved, banks of presets are accessed by pressing
the PRE/DIR button, and then pressing the
appropriate number button accesses the desired

Radio Data Service (RDS) Information and Display Modes
The Radio Data Service is a format FM broadcasters
can use to send artist and song information with their
broadcast. Although this service is gaining in
popularity, all stations do not yet use it. If a station
is broadcasting RDS, the T2 will automatically scroll
what is being received. The Program Status Name
(PSN) data field (up to 8 characters) will appear in
the upper right of the display. This was intended by
RDS system architects to display a station name,
such as a call sign. The Radiotext field (up to 64
characters) will be displayed on the second line and
will scroll if it exceeds 16 characters. The Radiotext
message will be displayed on Display Pads in an
integrated Nuvo Concerto system. Radiotext was
intended for display of artist and title information.
Page 18
Actual use of these data fields is not regulated, and
they may vary significantly in content between
stations. If you choose not to have RDS information
displayed, pressing the “Display” button will then
indicate “RDS receive OFF”. In this state, Stereo
indication and a signal strength indicator will replace
the PSN field on the top line, and only the station
frequency will be displayed on a connected zone's
Display Pad. Pressing the button again will restore
RDS and display “RDS receive ON.” Each press of the
“Display” button toggles between on and off.
Pressing and holding the Memory button puts the T2
in memory recall mode. Turning the Select knob will
scroll up through the saved displays, starting with the
most recently saved. The T2 has the ability to save up
to 10 displays. When a new display is saved, it will
automatically place that information in the first slot,
and bump all previously saved displays down one.
Display number 10 will automatically drop off the list,

Signal Strength/Stereo Indicator
The signal strength indicator responds to the field
strength of the received carrier signal, fig. 24. This
indicator has seven discrete levels, with a single point
at the bottom of the character space indicating a
signal just detectable by the tuner, and a very strong
signal indicated by four lines of increasing length
above 3 dots. Stereo indication is also provided when
the tuner is successfully decoding FM Multiplex
stereo stations. The field will be blank if stereo
reception is not possible due to weak signal
conditions or if the station is broadcasting in
monaural (mono). The field will display MONO if
Force Mono is enabled from the MENU. This indicator
and Stereo lock information will be displayed upon
tuning to a new station. If RDS Receive is ON (see
previous section), then the indicator and Stereo lock
information will be displayed momentarily until valid
RDS PSN data has been received; then it will be
replaced by that data.
Source Switching
Pushing the “Source” button scrolls between AM, FM,
WX (Weather Band), and Auxiliary (Aux.) modes. The
auxiliary mode is optional and must be turned on
through the T2 Configuration software (see NV-T2DF

Setting Up the Tuner for NuVoNet
The T2 must be set for one of the Concerto source
inputs 1-6. This can be done at the front panel when
the tuner is first turned on, in the T2 Configurator
software, or through the front panel advanced menu.
The best way to utilize the T2 with NuVoNet is to set
up the T2 options in the included Configurator
software, and then download the configuration
through the rear-panel RS232 port. It may be
necessary to use a USB to RS232 adapter, fig. 26.
We recommend the use of two readily available
modelsthat work well with our equipment. One is a
Radio Shack part number 26-183, and the other is part
number FSU103, manufactured by Belkin.

Making Sure Your Concerto Is Ready for NuVoNet Use
Your Concerto System must be updated with at least
software version 1.41 for proper NuVoNet
communication with the T2. To check what
Configurator version you currently have, open the
Concerto Configurator software on your computer by
double-clicking on the Configurator icon on the
desktop. You will see a splash screen appear before
the software opens. This lists the current software
version. If you do not have version 1.41 or later, go to
www.nuvotechnologies.com/prozone. There you can
log onto the Download page and download the latest
version.

When this is done, open the applicable configuration
from your configuration files or retrieve the
configuration from the Concerto main unit. Once the
appropriate configuration is opened, go to the Source
tab and place the T2 IR library in the appropriate
source locations 1-6,fig. 27. Once you have added the
T2 as two of the Concerto sources, you can then
download the configuration to the Concerto through
the RS232 port on the back of the Concerto. When the
download is complete, your system is ready for
NuVoNet Communication.

Making the Connection
Prior to connecting to NuVoNet, the Concerto must
have the correct Configuration version downloaded
with the T2 representing two of the audio sources.
Making the NuVoNet connection is done simply by
connecting the “NuVoNet” output on the T2 to one of
the “Peripheral Device” inputs on the Concerto EZ
Port, fig. 28. This connection will then enable bidirectional NuVoNet communication with the Display
Pads.

Operating the T2 with the Concerto Display Pad
By following the previous steps you should now be
able to operate the T2 from any of the Concerto
Display Pads. The Concerto Display Pads have
secondary tuner functions silk-screened on the bezel
below the associated keys. They appear under the
appropriate function buttons, fig. 29.
Step Tune: Basic step tuning is done by pressing the
left or right arrows labeled Tune.
Seek Tune: Seek tuning automatically seeks to the
next frequency that meets the set signal strength
threshold (see T2 Configuration Software, Advanced
Settings, Tuning Parameters pg. 22). This is done by
pressing the left and right arrows labeled Seek (see
fig. 29).

Again, the categories and the frequencies within each
category must be first assigned within the T2
Configuration software.
Scan Tune: Scan tuning automatically tunes to the
next available station frequency that meets the signal
threshold (as described above in the Seek Tune
Mode). Scan tune allows the T2 to settle on a
frequency for 5 seconds and then automatically go to
the next frequency. To select the station, push the
“ENT” button before the T2 resumes station scanning.
Scan tuning is initiated by pressing the “PLAY”
button, also labeled “Scan” (see fig. 29).
Tuning by Categories: The provided genre categories
are defined in the T2 Configuration software (see NVT2DF Configuration Software, Advanced Settings,
Categories, pg. 24). You can use the stop and pause
buttons, also labeled “Categories,” to scroll up or
down through the defined categories. Once you have
chosen a category, the Seek up and Seek down
buttons will automatically tune through any
frequency within that category selection.
Page 21
Radio Data Service: The Display Pad will scroll
received Radiotext data if the tuned station is
broadcasting it and if signal strength is sufficient.
When a defined preset is selected, the name of that
preset will appear on the display momentarily. If
Radiotext RDS data is being broadcast, it will then
automatically begin scrolling. This takes a few
moments while the information buffers.
Direct Numeric Entry Tuning: Accessing direct tuning
is done by pressing the +10 button (see fig. 27). This
toggles between banks of presets (the T2
Configurator software allows for 10 banks each with
10 presets) and direct tune. When Direct Tune
appears on the display, a frequency can be
numerically entered using the numeric keypad on the
Display Pad. When you are entering a frequency
number, it is not necessary to enter the decimal, i.e.
102.7. The entered numbers will appear on the
display. When the ENT button is pressed, the T2 will
tune to that station.
Source Switching (radio band, aux input): The bottom
row of buttons on the Concerto Display Pad are
assigned FM, AM, WX (Weather Band), and Aux.
Changing the T2 source is done simply by pressing
one of those four buttons, (see fig. 29).
T2 AM/FM Configuration Software
The T2 package includes a PC Windows based T2 Configurator
setup software designed to quickly move you through the
Tuners' setup options in a methodical fashion, and allow access
to the more advanced setup features. Configurations are saved
as files in the software's “Config” folder. Once complete,
configurations can be used as templates for future
installations.
2.0 Config
The Config tab is for the initial setup, which determines basic
tuner operation.
1.0 Start
The start tab allows you to load an existing configuration, or
create a new one, or retrieve and edit a configuration from the
T2.
1.0 Start
2.1 NuVoNet Operating Mode: This drop down menu allows you
to select between “Stand-alone” or as a Concerto source 1- 6.
If you are using the T2 as NuVoNet source for Concerto, you
must select a unique, dedicated source input for each Tuner (A
or B) being configured.
2.1 NuVoNet Operating Mode
1.1 New Config: After you have opened a configuration, name
it appropriately. The Configuration software automatically
saves and changes made.
1.1 New Config
Page 22
2.2 Regional Setup: Depending on your geographic location,
the tuner needs to be set for the proper tuning standard. The
choices are USA and Canada, Western Europe, Australia, and
New Zealand. Countries outside these geographic locations
need the advanced custom setting (see Advanced Settings: 4.1
Custom Regional Setup).
2.4 Auto-On: In the event of loss of power, or if the T2 is
unplugged, the tuners can be set with this check box to
automatically turn on when power is returned.
2.4 Auto-On
2.2 Regional Setup
3.0 Presets
2.3 Brightness: This sets the intensity of the displays for each
tuner. The factory default is the maximum level 8.

3.1 Preset Information: This section provides a display name,
band and tuning frequency for each preset. As the
Preset information fields are populated, the same information
will automatically fill the highlighted fields to the left.
Each bank of presets will hold 10 presets, and up to 10 banks
can be assigned. Three buttons at the bottom of the tab
are designated to assigning preset banks.
3.1 Preset Information

3.2 Add Bank: If you want to add a bank of 10 presets, the “Add
Bank “ button will bring up a window that allows you to name
the bank and automatically add it to the T2's presets.
3.2 Add Bank
3.4 Erase Bank
3.5 XM Presets: Assigning presets for XM is very simple. When
either the T2XF or T2DX products, which contain the XM tuner
modules, are selected in the Config tab, an XM Preset tab is
available. This tab has the same preset selection properties on
the left as the AM/FM preset tab, but on the right, a drop down
menu allows easy access to all the available XM stations.
3.3 Rename Bank: This button allows you to give a bank of
presets a customized name.
3.3 Rename Bank
To assign an XM preset, you highlight the number field on the
left and click on the appropriate XM station from the drop
down menu on the right. That station selection will
automatically populate the highlighted preset field.
3.5 XM Presets
3.4 Erase Bank: All preset banks, with the exception of the first
bank, can be erased one bank at a time. You cannot erase the
first bank of ten presets.
Page 24
4.2 Tuning Parameters: This section determines how the T2
tunes up and down. Seek/Scan Levels for each band, FM, AM,
and Weatherband sets the signal strength parameter for
searching stations. The lowest level 0 causes the tuner to stop
at any frequency with a very low signal. Level 4 (High), stops
only when a very strong signal is detected. The factory default
is Level 2 (Medium), which searches for a moderate signal.
This setting changes the necessary signal threshold, which is
the minimum signal level required for the T2 to recognize it
and lock on to the frequency.
4.2 Tuning Parameters
Advanced Settings
The T2 software contains several specialized settings for more
advanced setup. Clicking on view and selecting “Advanced”
will expand the tabs as discussed in the next section to allow
access to this functionality.
4.0 Advanced Config
The T2 software allows for more advanced settings that if
necessary allow you to tweak the tuner's operation.
4.0 Advanced Config
4.1 Custom Regional Setup: Some countries operate at a tuning
standard outside the four preset regions. The Custom setting
allows specific parameters. One determining factor for tuning
is the “Pre-emphasis”. The two choices for this are 50µS
(microseconds) and 75µS. The custom setting also allows for
specific setting of the minimum and maximum tuning
capability and the individual tuning steps for FM and AM.
4.1 Custom Regional Setup
4.3 Fine Tuning: When selected, Fine Tuning changes the
tuning standard for FM from the default .10 MHz tuning to .05
MHz step tuning, and AM will tune by single kHz increments,
rather than the default 10 kHz for USA and Canada, and 9 kHz
for Europe. Smaller tuning steps allow access to all station
frequencies.
4.3 Fine Tuning
Page 25
4.4 Audio: Output Level increases or decreases the level of
signal from the audio output of each tuner. This setting and
balance, treble, and bass are best left at the default settings
for use with an audio distribution system such as NuVo
systems, that have built-in equalization capability. You may
want to make adjustments when the T2 is being used as a
stand-alone component with an amplifier.
4.4 Audio Output Level
4.5 AUX Input: The T2 has an additional input that allows an
external device to be controlled through the T2's IR pass
through. When this input is enabled, the level of the signal
input can be adjusted up or down to match the tuners' signal
output level.
4.5 AUX Input
5.0 Advanced Presets
The preset tab in the advanced settings has additional features
for specific preset setup.
5.1 High Cut: High-Cut is rarely used, but it can be a useful
function for a weaker AM signal that tends to have highfrequency hiss. This drop down menu allows you to select a
frequency cut-off for high-frequency reception. Any audio
above the chosen frequency will be filtered.
5.1 High Cut
5.2 Level: This slider changes the signal level of the station.
This is especially useful for stations, such as many Public
Broadcasting System affiliates, that broadcast an
uncompressed signal with a lower volume level than other
stations. This makes it possible for all stations to have the
same volume level as the user accesses presets.
5.1 Level
Page 26
6.0 Categories
A unique feature of the T2 is the ability to set up listening
categories. These are genre selections that automatically tune
through stations within that genre. Typical categories are
sports, talk, rock, and classical. The T2 software has 38 preloaded categories available. These are easily turned off if you
do not intend to use them, or new categories can be added to
best fit the user's needs. Every radio market area has a list of
AM and FM stations available through a website,
www.radiolocator.com. Here you will find a list of stations,
approximate signal strength and the appropriate listening
genres. This can be a useful tool for setting up a template for
all of your tuner configurations.
6.2 FM Freqs: This tab lists all the available frequencies within
the FM band. When highlighted, the Frequency Information on
the right side of the tab allows you to name and categorize
each desired frequency in up to four different categories. The
Category drop down menus will only display the categories
you have turned on.
6.2 FM Freqs
6.1 Categories Tab: By highlighting categories within the
categories tab, you can click the On/Off button to turn
that category on and off. This prevents unused categories from
being displayed when scrolling through the category
selections. Unused categories can be deleted or new
categories can be added. Any of the categories can be given a
customized name by clicking on the rename button.
6.1 Categories Tab
6.3 AM Freqs: This tab is identical in function to the FM Freqs
tab, but categorizes the AM frequencies.
6.3 AM Freqs
When the desired frequencies have been categorized, the
Category tab will update to show the Categories you have
turned on and whether or not each category is used.

7.0 Update System
7.1 Download Configuration: The final step in the setup is to
download the configuration to the T2 via either its Rs232
serial port, or the USB port. At download the system gives
three options: Download configuration to both tuners, or to
either Tuner A or Tuner B. When you select an option, a window
Will appear with a download progress bar.
7.2 Successful Download: When the download is complete a
final window will appear indicating that all the information
has downloaded successfully. Actual download time will vary
based on your computer's processing capabilities.

I can't control the Tuner A or Tuner B from Display Pads, even
though my Concerto Configuration has these tuners enabled as
sources in the Concerto Configuration I loaded.

Does your Concerto Configuration have Tuner A or
Tuner B set up as a source using the provided T2 library?
Is the Tuner configured for “Operating Mode” matching
the source numbers you set up in the Concerto
Configuration? This can be done from the front panel
MENU Adv. Settings selection, or with the T2
Configurator.
Is the T2 connected to the NuvoNet through your EZPort?
My Tuner A or Tuner B display periodically says “Error no Concerto
Connected”.
Connect the Nuvonet IN port on the rear of the T2 to one of the
“Peripheral Device” ports on your Concerto EZ Port.
My Tuner A or Tuner B display periodically says “Error source
address not in Concerto Configuration”.
The source numbers assigned in your Concerto Configuration do not
match the “Operating Mode” selection for the tuner. Change either
one to match the other.
The song name displayed on my Display Pad does not match
what I'm hearing.
The system will forward currently broadcasted Radio Data Service
(RDS) RadioText data from the station tuned. Unfortunately, many
stations do not keep this information current in all cases.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
Remedy
When I use Seek or Scan tuning, the tuner misses some
stations that I can receive in the manual STEP tune mode.
Congratulations, your listening area is relatively free from
interference! You should lower the “seek threshold” by
going to MENU Adv. Settings Seek Threshold, selecting FM
Threshold or AM Theshold as appropriate, and rotating the
SELECT knob counter clockwise. This will move the display
indicator toward LOW. Alternatively, you can do this in your
T2 Configurator by going to the Config page, selecting ViewAdvanced from the page menu, and dialing in the lower
threshold in the Seek/Scan Levels select box. This is found in
the “Tuning Parameters” section of the Windows page at the
lower right.
There is a lot of hiss and extra noise on some of the AM
stations.
This is a common occurrence with some AM stations that have
a weaker signal. This can be minimized in the T2 Configurator
software by using the “High-Cut” feature in the Advanced
Preset settings. See “5.1 High Cut” on page 23 for detailed
instructions for using this feature.
I want to have another audio source connected to the “AUX”
input, but I have no audio when I switch to that source.
Remember, you have to Enable the “AUX” input either at the
front panel through the advanced menu options, page 14, or
in the T2 Configurator software in the Advanced Config, page
23.
