Please help me with a Alpine PXA701

I can not get my 701 to work as a stand alone, or even power on with out a ai-net connection. As soon as i connect the ai-net it turns on and works mostly. Everything functions correctly except I do not have a input select option in the setup menu. The manual says it should be there but it is not. So no auxiliary. That is a real problem. It was my understanding I could use this unit as a stand alone. Lastly I have a controller for a pxa700. I was told it is supposed to work the same but the buttons would be green instead of blue. Maybe the controller is the problem? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

have you tried put 12v on the remote in wire? you don't need it when you use ainet but do without.
humm not sure about this, but have you put the system switch to EQ/Div on the HU?

ok just tried an h800 with a w205. I confirm that when you use the deck with ainet you loose the ability to control the input from the controller.

My guess is that once you're in ainet the other input need to be ainet too (ex: CD-Changer)
So your suggesting is I will lose the ability to switch to optical input completely once connected to a ai-net hu? That does not seem reasonable. I am glad you took the time to confirm the loss of controller function though. It does not seem hard to switch inputs when in aux mode. Obviously it is!
yes unfortunately, I think it has to do with volume control.

When using ainet, volume is controlled by the HU, in standalone it's the RUX that control it.
