Denon asd-3w dock---do you need an ipod in order to use the dock?
Recently purchased an open box denon asd-3w. When I hook it up to the stereo it initially starts up, then GUI come up for a split second then the unit powers down. It repeats this process over and over. Now, I was told that you didn't need an ipod in order for this to work....is that true? I bought the unit in order to wirelessly stream my music from my computer to my stereo---I don't actually have an ipod. Do I have to go out and buy an ipod now?

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
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).
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.
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.
