i have no radio siegnel from my ipod nano in my bose sound dock


The ipod headphone cord acts as an antenna, and with the design of the nano you can't plug them into the ipod and the docking station at the same time. You can buy an audio adapter cable - a 3.5mm to 3.5mm one; just plug one end into your ipod and the other end into the aux port on the back of your dock. You can then use the radio, as the cable will act as the antenna. I got one on ebay - the cable has plugs on each end which are the same size as your ipod headphone plug. You can also get them in variety stores or electrical stores.
