Re: No video from a new 160G ipod

Install latest firmware for both kenwood and apple ipod. My kenwood with latest firmware and ipod classic 160 with v1.1 firmware is finally working. Video cable has to be ipod video cable and not ipod audio cable.

It may be the interface used to connect the ipod. You have to check your Ipod version and to connect the correct interface.

There is a known incompatibility with 6th gen iPods and the DNX7100. Try to find a 5.5 gen iPod or wait until Kenwood releases a software patch.

Jensen vm9412 and ipod classic

The newer generation iPods don't always work with the iPod connection kits in a lot of the car stereos. Some of the problem is due to the fact that the new generation iPods have been changed and the stereos were manufactured before the players were released so they are not compatible.
I bought my girlfriend a Pioneer car stereo with an iPod control cable, and it works fine with her Nano (not the new generation Nano) and it works with my iPod Photo 60 GB but it does not work with my iPhone 2G and I read that it is not compatible with the new Nanos or the Classics. Check with Jensen to see if the model you have is compatible with the Classic and see if there is a solution to the issue. It may not be compatible with the new video portion of the Classic firmware.

Ipod Video

This will never work, the new ipods will only work with apple products. I've had numerous headaches with this and after many phonecalls to manufacturers I discovered that the new ipods will only play video if they see an apple authentication chip embedded inside the video cable. Sorry.

Jensen VM 9311 iPod Classic

The new ipod will not work with anything other than 2008 alpine products. Apple embedded a chip in the actual cable that tells the ipod that it's ok to pay. What you need is an authentic apple video cable that can only be purchased at the apple store...then hook the inputs up to the video input on the radio.

Ipod wont come up

The problem is that your iPod adapter does not have a authentication chip in it. Apple decided to go a new route with the new iPods. They now require a authentication chip if you want to get audio and video out of the iPod using the dock connector. So you won't be able to hook up your iPod to your system using your current equipment. You can either hope that the maker of your equipment comes out with a new iPod cable that has a authentication chip (they have to pay Apple for this so if the company is cheap then you are probably out of luck) or just stick with your older 5G/5.5G iPod.
