Question about Denon AVR-485 Receiver
I'm trying to play my iPod through the Denon receiver. The iPod is sitting in a dock. I have one cord on the back of the dock plugged into a wall outlet. The other three cords are connected to input slots on the back of the receiver. I then "assign" the receiver to the corresponding slots in the back of the receiver. Supposedly that's all I have to do. But the receiver keeps saying "iPod not connected".
I've called Best Buy where I bought the receiver; no one knew the answer. I re-read the manual and it looked like there was one more cord that had to run from the back iPod to the back of the receiver, but that didn't work. I finally went to Best Buy, took the manual, took the receiver, took the iPod with me, and the guy hooked it up without a problem, seemingly the same way I did. (In fact, he told me to get rid of that 3rd wire, that I didn't need it.) Got home, still doesn't work. I had the iPod checked out at Apple. All's well there. I have a feeling it's something really simple I'm not doing on the receiver. Any ideas?
The receiver is the DRA 397 model. I don't have a solution yet. If anyone does, I'd appreciate it!!
