Alternate HD Channels

Perhaps it's just a RTFM problem, but how do I access the additional HD channels a station usually has? I have the HD option and my unit switches to HD when it senses a station is in HD, but many of the stations have a HD2 channel, etc... with alternate programming. How do I access those?

Once you tune into the HD channel then you use the right and left arrow (seek) buttons above the mode button...don't use the idrive or the steering wheel or it will just take you to the next frequency...you have to make sure it is locked on the first HD channel (ex. 92.1) before you can tune in 92.1-2....although I haven't found a way to store the alternate HD channel yet...anyone else??

hope this helps

I tried that, using the seek buttons and it just tuned in the next station. I made sure I was tuned into a HD station and was in HD mode first, but it still changed. To confirm, I used the seek buttons above the mode button. Any other ideas?

that's the way I have done it in my car...So you waited a few seconds once the HD signal pops up on the screen first?? I have my car in for service but should be getting it back tomorrow so I'll do it again just to confirm but I know that works for me...I'll let you know as soon as I retry it!

vabeachrunner4 should have linked you to my response to his similar question earlier this month....

The key step that was left out here is that you have to be in MANUAL tuning mode for it to work (yeah, I know, it's stupid but that's the only way it appears to work). Still no way to store an HD2 station.
