Question about Denon ASD3W IPod Networking Dock Docking Station

2 Answers

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

I connected the ASD-3W to the Denon 3808CI according to the default settings (attached it to the VCR input). When I put my 80gb ipod in the dock and set the receiver to ipod mode, the proper screen (saying "DENON, OK to disconnect") does not appear on the ipod. Also, no music is played through the receiver.

Since I'm using the default setup, I don't think I need to assign the VCR to the ipod, but I tried anyway. I did this using menu options on the display panel of the receiver. Maybe I didn't follow the right steps? The manual is of no help.

HELP!!!

    we have gone through the steps in the manual to connect our ipod dock to our denon receiver, but it keeps saying ipod not connected. All cables and plugs are installed correctly. Why won't it work?

    I have the same problem with AVR1708.

  • nmhill2 Mar 16, 2009

    I ended up just plugging the ipod dock station cable into the connector on the receiver for Tape/CDR without configuring it for the iPod, and it plays fine - I just don't see any of the iPod information on the Denon receiver (which is no big deal) and it can't be controlled from the receiver remote, which is fine since the docking station has its own remote.

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.

VERIFY YOUR CONNECTIONS FROM THE DOCKING STATION TO THE DENON, AUDIO, VIDEO AND CONTROL CABLE PAGE 13 OF MANUAL AND YOU MUST MAKE SURE TO CONFIGURE THE VCR INPUT SEE PAGE 39 IN THE MANUAL IF AFTER YOU DOCKING STATION IS STILL NOT WORKING I WOULD VERIFY THAT IT WORKS

Hi, You don't need an iPod to get the network audio to work. This sounds like the power supply is faulty - is ther lots of clicking coming from the unit?

Double check the 'dock control' connection. On the dock and receiver to ensure it's plugged in nice and tight.

I have a denon ASD 11r. When I connect ipd touch it just says 'loading; I can connect an ipod classic with no problem. Any advice? thank you


My Denon receiver has an attached iPod dock. I periodically have trouble getting it to work. It would be trying to do "loading" on its screen. When I manually switch to "remote iPod" mode, it would play music for about 3-5 seconds, and then switch back and try to do "loading". It seemed to be switching back to "browse" mode (display on TV) on its own.

After searching several times, I read how one person found the connection between the iPod and dock was weak, which I also noticed. I found that pressing firmly with no wiggling to ensure a good connection seemed to solve the problem. The person also suggested taking off the dock housing and scraping/sanding/thinning the plastic in the bottom of the dock bay so the iPod has better connection. That might help, and I may try that in the future. But for now, taking the effort of making a good connection seems to solve the problem.

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

Cannot connect to Internet


Set the "Mode" on the "Details" as "Infrastructure" if you are connecting to a wireless access point/router

SSID is case sensitive, ensure that you have it entered exactly the same as it is on router
On WEP Key, use the 10 Hexadecimal key (for 64-bit WEP) or 26 Hex if (128-bit WEP) that is set on the router (0-9 and A-F characters on Key 1. Key 1 is selected as the default network key on the router).

Also, ensure that the DHCP is enabled on the router so it will issue an IP address to your device.

Once everything is set, power cycle your devices to synch your wireless connection (power off the router and the device and turn them back on in that order).

Hope this helps.

No GUI shows up


Silly me! I needed to hold down the mode button on one of the gazillion remotes you get and magic happened! I could see the GUI. As for the Internet Radio, now I can see where to enter in the IP address and proxy so I will give that a try and get back to you all.
