Should i buy the universal dock

should i buy the universal dock. does the ipod sit tight in the adapter u get with the ipod in the universal dock??? please help need advice

I bought the universal dock for the new 5th generation ipod. i bought it with the intentions of using it to play music and video through my entertainment center. 2 things have gone terribly wrong with this idea. 1) i can't have the dock connected to power outlet while playing music as a residual hum blows through the speakers. i've tried both turning the volume down on the ipod and disconnecting the power supply. the later is the solution that worked but defeats the purpose of charging while playing music. 2) the apple cords i have are not working with video playback. audio works fine, with adjustment foremetioned, but no video is coming through to tv.

  • Apple Composite AV cables with the universal dock

    Hi,
    I have a classic iPod 80gb w/video (i think it's 5th generation)
    I recently purchased the Apple composite AV cables to listen to my ipod via the RCA inputs on my stereo's receiver. This works well.
    It also has a USB cable attached so I can charge the ipod while I listen to music.
    I wanted to purchase the universal dock so I can replace my old CD changer and have a nice looking iPod sitting in a nice dock where the cd changer used to be. Plus the remote would come in handy.
    Since my composite cables play music and charge I figured I'd just plug the 30-pin adapter into the back of the dock and pop my ipod into the dock (i realize I'll probably need a dock apadter for my classic ipod) and i'd be able to play music and charge the ipod.
    I spoke with an Apple salesmen who says that this woun't work, I need to buy a headphone (3.5 mm) to RCA adapter cable for the audio and the USB 30pin plug is only for charging.
    But right now, without the dock it does both, so does anyone know if this sales person is correct? They had to do a lot of research so I know he didn't know first-hand.
    Has anyone tried this?
    I'd hate to have to buy a 3.5 mm to rca cord and then not use the 39 cables I just purchased.
    Thanks so much for any help.

    Your 3 rca connector comes with video (yellow) and audio (red and white) and the other one is usb which you can use for charging if you plug the charger on it. no need to plug 3.5mm mono jack.

  • Does Av digital adapter works with the universal dock for remote control?

    if I only connect the Lightning to 30 pin adapter to the universal dock for remote control it works so good with music, spotify, Netflix, YouTube etc.
    but if I add the av digital lightning adapter to watch on Tv, the dock and remote control don't work anymore    what can I do? I want to watch stuff on tv and use the IR dock for remote control please help me what's going wrong?

    Thanks for your advice.
    I recently purchased a universal dock for my iphone 3g. It works great. I just had one question. When my iphone is sitting on it for lets say 20 - 30 minutes. Then if i press the buttons on the remote. nothing happens! If I then press the home button while it is on the cradle then, the remote, it plays music. There after lets say if I stop stop the music through the remote and again press the remote button after a few minutes it starts playing. So what happens after a long time. Why do i have to press the home button on the iphone for the remote to work. Is that how it is supposed to work???
    Thanks

  • Should I buy the new MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro

    Should I buy the new MacBook Air or the MacBook Pro?

    it really depends what you are going to be doing, if you are going to be video editing and doing intensive stuff the Macbook Pro.
    if you are going to be just browsing the web and doing lite video editing and not that intensive stuff than you should go with the Macbook Air.
    Also if you want a cheaper computer than you should get the Macbook Air.  By cheap, I mean less expensive.

  • My touch will not play sound thru speakers while on the universal dock but will play when it is off

    how do i get my itouch to play thru speakers while on the universal dock?

    hmm if your ipod touch  will not play music tru its internal speakers while it is connected to a power cable might be beacuse of a malf. to fix this issue just restart your ipod touch while connected to a power adapter. if this does not work it may be a hardware problem. please take it to your nearest apple store. they might be able to fix the issue and if your ipod touch is under warrenty they might be able to replace it.

  • Does the connector in the Universal dock work with the iPhone?

    My iPhone now has a thick rubber case making it too big for the iPhone dock.
    I have a old iPod universal dock but am not clear if it work with the iPhone. The connector looks similar except that the ends are not quite flush. Will it work?
    I don't want to damage a working device.
    Patrick

    I've used the universal dock with my iPhone, but it isn't all that stable. You can also just connect the dock connector cable directly to the bottom of the phone; you don't have to use a dock.

  • With the new ipad coming out soon, why should I buy the ipad 2?

    with the new ipad coming out soon, why should I buy the ipad 2?

    I can only echo what Pogo says about buying based on what it does today.
    3 weeks ago I bought a Mac Mini. A new Mac Mini model has been rumoured to come out anywhere between the same week I made my purchase and the end of August. None's been released as yet.
    I wanted one in the week of June that I bought mine so I bought it based on the fact that it did what I wanted and I couldn't imagine anything which could be added that I'd want - my MacBook Pro doesn't have Thunderbolt so the most likely addition isn't really going to be much use for me.
    Basically you have to buy what you what based on what's out at the the time.
    I can promise that within seconds of the iPad3 being released, the web will be full of rumours about the next one!

  • Using the iPod Function of iPhone 3G while docked in the Universal Dock

    I am trying to use the iPhone to play my music while docked in my universal dock with the correct snappins that I just received. I here absolutely no music from the speaker while docked. I have tested it while using the alarm and receiving a call from someone. Is there something I am doing wrong or does it just not play music the the speakerphone while docked. Thanks, Jeff

    There is a difference between the iPhone 3G dock and the Universal dock with the iPhone 3G insert that allows one to be used as a speakerphone (or standalone iPod) and the other to be used really only for synching and charging.......you can guess which is which!
    If you really need the hands-free speakerphone facility (with iPod music delivery of a sort) then the 3G dock is the baby, but if you really want quality iPod music-delivery then why not consider a cable from your Universal dock to your sound-system? This solution works for me for music (as well as synching and charging) but hands-free speakerphone is still a no-go with my Universal dock, so I then use the 3G one.
    I hope that helps....

  • Please share your experience with the universal dock for iphone 3g

    Hi There,
    1. Can people share their experience of the universal dock with the iphone 3g adapter. My concern is that does the tight fit scratch the black lower back of the iphone plastic everytime we remove it or put it in? OR is there enough gap for the iphone to slip in and out without scratching.
    2. Anyone having issues with the universal dock or does it work fine for most?
    thanks in advance,
    cheers,
    Sunil

  • I have been considering buying Aperture 3 but the numerous, negative reviews are making me wary.  Should I buy the first version - Aperture 2.1.1 instead?

    I have been considering buying Aperture 3 but the numerous, negative reviews are making me wary.  Should I buy the first version - Aperture 2.1.1 instead? 
    I have a 2009 MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard.  I do not think I will upgrade to Lion because I was warned that it may conflict with some of my applications.
    There have been so many reviews that talk about how Aperture 3 is so slow and spends too much time searching for Faces and eventually crashes.  And, many reviews mention that you need to add to your RAM which I can't do right now, especially on a 3 year old computer.
    There are some copies Aperture 2 on Amazon.  Would that be a good place to buy a copy or a used copy?
    I would appreciate some good advice.  Thanks, Taf Schaefer

    Obviously you haven't read the reviews of Aperture 2
    FWIW I use Ap3 on both a 2010 MBP (8 gigs of Ram) and an 2008 iMac (4 gigs) and I have no crashing issues whatever. Remember, you can disable Faces if you don't want to use that feature.

    I used to use iPhoto and I will probably revert to that (although it has fewer function like no RAW import etc.)
    Just an FYI: iPhoto supports exactly the same Raws as Aperture.

    Hi David,
    I got a gigadesign 1.467 single processor upgrade for my tired 'ol G4 466 about a year ago. I paid around $450 at the time and now they have a 1.8 single for $299!
    I have zero bad things to say about the upgrade. Easy to install (although a little nerve wracking!) and it's been running hassle free ever since. It's given me the juice to take advantage of Space Designer as well as keeping up with my CPU sucking Native Instruments software.
    I did plenty of research as far as compatibility before comitting to the upgrade and have had zero issues.
    Obviously a new computer is the next step but that processor upgrade has kept me chugging along enough to stay in the game thus far.
