Setup > Radio: There will be a checkbox to enable HD Radio.

Press the Band button on the side to get back to the radio screen. Along the bottom row of soft buttons, press Stations. If there are secondary HD channels, they will be shown there. If a station is broadcasting HD, the HD radio icon will show up on the top of the radio screen.

Ah damn nothing there. Regular stations show up with the HD Radio icon but I don't see HD2 stations listed.

The variable delay *IS* normal for the RNS. When the car is just shutdoen briefly, it keeps runnimg anticipating more use.After time, it fully powers downto savepower, and thus takes a bit longer to come up. Your mileage may vary, but with my driving habits, it's pretty rare for the camera to not be ready when I need it, and I think it may depend on what mode the unit ismin at start, and possibly firmware (I am on the latest in both our Passats).

Can't speak to audio on alt-HD stations, since I have never used one. Overall, I find the unit decent and far better than anything that ever came from Bose for, instance (but then again, that bar is prety low) . . .
