Default Stereo reception above 100MHz w/Galaxy Players?

I receive strong local stations above 100MHz easily, unfortunately those stations are not received in stereo on the Galaxy players. Below 100MHz no problem.

As a comparison using the same earphones, the Cowon X5, Clip Zip, even the Best Buy HD portable radios and every FM tuner I have has zero problems with these stations. The only other time I've seen this issue is with the old iPod (shudder) FM tuner accessory. Changing earphones/headphones make no difference. Using another app such as Radio Two0 doesn't help.

Please post more information about your device
-full name. For instance: YP-G1CEW/XAA
-firmware in Kies
-Android version

Please also try with another FM app from the Android Market.

Then if other users confirm the same issue, I'll report it to Samsung. I don't know if it's a bug they can fix.

Player: Samsung Galaxy 5.0 YP-G70CWY/XAA
Kies Firmware: PDA:KI8/CSC:KI8 (XAA)
Android: 2.3.5
Country: USA version

I tried the Radio Two0 App (Android Market) which functions but exhibits the same problem. The other is Spirit Radio which, based upon postings on the CRC forums, uses the same CRC libraries but the app informs me it cannot install.

Thank you!

I strongly suspect the chip is part of the Silicon Labs SI47xx series. The problem could be an over-aggressive noise/blend algorithm. For the SI-47xx evaluation board, the parameters would probably be in the "Blend Multipath" or "Stereo Blend" settings.

Check to make sure the headphone jack is all the way in. My Samsung's don't have any problem with stereo on the 99.5 and above stations.

I've checked repeatedly, tried different headphones, earphones, apps, cleaned plugs, etc.

Which Samsungs do you own? Do they use the Silicon Labs SI47xx series?

If it helps, I receive the RDS information for stations above 100MHz OK. The 4.0, I had, exhibited the same issue as well -- even outdoors.
