Function Overview
? Basic Operation
You can use your amp's remote controller to control
basic iPod functions such as Play, Pause, Next Song,
Previous Song, and so on.
Depending on your amp and generation of iPod, you
may also be able to use the following functions.
o System On Function
When you turn on your amp, the RI Dock and your
iPod turn on as well. With some components, you
may need to press your remote controller's [ON] button twice to turn on the other devices in your system.
With 3rd generation iPods, only the RI Dock is turned
on.
o System Off Function
When you turn off your amp, the RI Dock and iPod
turn off as well.

10

o Auto Power On Function
If you press your remote controller's Play [ ] button
while your amp is on Standby, your amp will automatically turn on and select your iPod as the input
source. Then, your iPod will start playback.
With a 3rd generation iPod, you can use the remote
controller's Play [ ] or Pause [ ] button to do this.
o Direct Change Function
If you start iPod playback using your remote controller while listening to another input source, your amp
will automatically select your iPod as the input
source.
With a 3rd generation iPod, you can use the remote
controller's Play [ ] or Pause [ ] button to do this.
o Timer Play
You can use your amp's Timer function to turn on
your amp and iPod and start playback at a specified
time.

DS-A1_En.book Page 11 Friday, April 22, 2005 11:19 AM

Using the RI Dock--Continued
o Linked Dimmer Operation
When you use your amp's Dimmer function to
change its display's brightness, the brightness of the
RI Dock's Power indicator will change as well.
o Other Remote Controller Functions
See pages 12 and 13 for other iPod functions you can
control with your remote controller.
? Operating Notes
o Use your amp's volume control to set the volume.
o When your iPod is in the RI Dock, its volume control has no effect.
o When you use your iPod with earphones, make
sure the iPod's volume control is not set too high
before you connect your earphones.
o The RI Dock must be connected to your amp with
both an
cable and an audio cable to use these
functions.
o If your amp doesn't support the System On, System Off, Auto Power On, and Direct Change functions, you'll need to turn your amp on and off
manually and select the appropriate input source.

? iPod photo Notes
o If you have an iPod photo, and have connected the
RI Dock's S VIDEO jack to an S-Video input on your
AV receiver, you might need to assign that video
input to the TAPE (MD, CDR) input source. See your
AV receiver's instruction manual for details.
o If your AV receiver doesn't allow you to assign
video inputs to input sources, connect the RI
Dock's S VIDEO jack to the AV receiver's VIDEO 2 IN
jack. When you want to enjoy an iPod slideshow
with music, first select the VIDEO 2 input source,
and then select the TAPE input source. Your AV
receiver will output the audio being fed to the
TAPE IN, and because the video source doesn't
change when the TAPE input source is selected, it'll
continue to output the video being fed to the
VIDEO 2 IN.

iPod Functions
Starting Playback on Your iPod
If you start playback on your iPod, your amp's input
source will automatically switch to the input to which
your iPod is connected. If your amp is on Standby, it
will automatically turn on first.

Using Your iPod's Alarm Clock

o Your amp may take several seconds to startup, so
you might not hear the first few seconds of the first
song.
o When you select a different input source, stop
playback on your iPod to prevent your amp from
selecting the iPod input source by mistake.
o If any accessories are connected to your iPod, your
amp may not be able to select the input source
properly.

You can use your iPod's Alarm Clock function to automatically turn on your iPod and amp at a specified
time. Your amp's input source will automatically be
set to the input to which your iPod is connected.

Charging Your iPod Battery

Notes:
o To use these functions, your iPod must be in the RI
Dock, and the RI Dock must be connected to your
amp with both an
cable and an audio cable.
o When you use these functions, be sure to set your
amp's volume control to a suitable level.

Notes:
o To charge your iPod battery, the AC adapter must
be plugged into a suitable wall outlet, and connected to the RI Dock's DC IN jack.
o Your iPod battery will be charged even when the RI
Dock's Power indicator is off.
o See your iPod's instruction manual for more information on battery charging.

o Make sure the iPod is properly inserted in the RI Dock.
o If your remote controller has remote mode buttons, make
sure you've selected the right mode.
o Check the position of the RI Dock's RI MODE switch.
o When you operate your iPod, point your remote controller
at your amp.
o The RI Dock must be connected to your amp with both an
cable and an audio cable.
o The TAPE IN on some amps can be set to TAPE, MD, or CDR.
Make sure the RI Dock's RI MODE switch and remote control mode match this setting. See your amp's manual for
more information.
If you still can't control your iPod, start playback by pressing your iPod's Play button. Remote operation should
then be possible.

o The operating instructions in this manual apply to the
iPod as of April 2005, and may change with future
upgrades to the iPod software.
o The AC adapter (IU15-2120100-WP) supplied with the RI
Dock is designed exclusively for use with the RI Dock. Do
not use it with another device. Likewise, do not use any
other AC adapter with the RI Dock. Doing so may damage the RI Dock.
o If there's any noise when listening to an FM or AM radio
station with your tuner or receiver, try moving the
antenna away from the RI Dock, iPod, and AC adapter's
cable. In addition, do not twist the AC adapter's cable
around any other cables.
