Question about Denon AVR-485 Receiver

1 Answer

No matter what I do, I can't hook up my Ipod dock to the Denon 397 receiver I just bought.

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?

I have a denon avr 2000 dsp and want a manual which nobody has and I want to hook up my ipod classic. There isn't any AUX front or rear and I don't have a dock.


To hook up your ipod, get a 3.5mm to rca cable and use your ipod's headphone jack. Just don't turn the volume way up on the ipod otherwise the input signal may to at too high a level for the receiver.

I too purchased the DenonASD11R Ipod dock to connect to my Denon AVR2311 Receiver, and I too experienced the same problem. I think it might be software compatiabilty issues between Ipod Gen 4, the Dock and Receiver. Some other Denon Ipod Docks are not compatiable with Ipod Touch 4. I returned my Dock and received full refund, and will be waiting for Denon to bring out another Ipod Dock which will work with Ipod Gen 4

Denon ASD-3w ipod dock not being recognized by denon 3808


I successfully connected the ASD-3W to the Denon 3808CI using the supplied AV/Control cables (dock control, L & R audio, S-video). I used the video and audio input connectors marked VCR (iPod) on the 3808CI and used the default settings. I used the connector marked Dock Control for the control cable. These VCR (iPod) connectors are different than the input connectors marked VCR. I turned the source selector to VCR/iPod Stereo and operated the GUI using the ASD-3W remote control. I was able to play music and video.

Operating my ipod docking station


Absolutely!
Keyword(Read the instruction and follow it step-by-step.) Well,if you do,you wouldn't be asking for help,cause you want a 50+ pages Denon manual instruction to be concise to few paragraphs so you could move on with your life-:o)
Okay.only this time!
Denon ipod docking station comes with a power plug and a set of cable which you need to connect behind the Denon AVR-2807 receiver which is under an INPUT LABEL for IPOD only(not going to give it away,you will find it!)
Now,of course you could use HDMI......but,the quickest way to view your video(on screen menu) will be using a composite(RCA) video cable to connect from the Video output(yellow color) from the receiver to the TV composite video input.Turn on your IPOD,and you are ready to see the on screen manual.
Hey,this is just a lazy way to start you off if tomorrow night you have a date;otherwise,set it up properly by using the instruction!
Cheers,

Denon receiver (DRA 397) will not speak to iPod dock


IF YOUR NOT USING A DENON IPOD DOCKING STATION IT WILL NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY.
YOU CAN CONNCET OTHER TYPES OF IPOD DOCKING STATIONS BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE CONTROL THROUGH THE DENON AND ONLY CONNECT THE AUDIO FOR THAT DOCKING STATION TO THE DENON AS ANOTHER SOURCE INPUT
