I just had a Jensen VM9312 headunit installed in my car, and I can't get the thing to work with my 6th gen 80 gig iPod video. My installer and I played around with the J-Link and my Ipod in his shop for a few minutes but we couldn't get it to work. We set the iPod up per Jensen's instruction manual (TV Out switched to on, widescreen mode, NTSC on), but no luck. Can anyone tell me what we did wrong?

JVC KS-PD100 iPod Interface Adapter (257KSPD100, sold separately). This
optional iPod Interface Adapter supports audio playback for the following
iPod models - iPod click-wheel (3rd gen), iPod photo (4th gen), iPod mini
(1st/2nd gen), iPod nano
(1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen), iPod video (5th gen), and iPod classic
(80/120/160GB). The KS-PD100 is not compatible with the iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd
gen), iPod nano (5th gen), or iPhone (2G/3G/3GS). This iPod interface will also not charge
the iPod nano (4th generation). *Apple firmware updates may change
This unit does not have iPod video capabilities only audio, If you want to view video from your iPod you can get a universal cable that would charge it and also give you a audio and video output, this cable needs to be powered and grounded and hooked up to one of the radio audio video inputs. This link will take you to it.
Check the initial settings menu (you will probably have to reset the system to get it to reappear) and set the aux 1 to IPOD. This will let the ipod video play via the aux 1 just like it is supposed to. This solution is buried in the manual but is really hard to pull together.
I have the Jensen head unit. I found out a while ago that the 6th Gen Ipod Classic does not send video through the multi-pin connection. Only out of the headphone/A/V out. This is the reason it does not work via the JLink cable into the Jensen VM9312
All I can tell through my searching, is that the Jlink only works on gen3-gen5 ipods. I have a gen 6 80gb classic, and while I can hear the audio from the movie playing, I have no video. Music plays fine.
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.
