Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Ipod headphone i am connecting the 1/8" earbud connector wire to rca cables for stereo (boom box)interface. I am confused by the wire that is red AND green spun together like a barber's pole, since there are additionally separate red and green wires in addition to the copper (colorless) wire which I assume is the ground or negative. To recap: on the ipod side (1/8") I have the following: 1green, 1red, 1red/green, 1copper. All with the firbrous core and no housing. On the rca side, I have a 1red(Right), 1white(left), two copper ground wires. So how is the connection supposed to go? P.S. I am getting sound out of the stereo speakers just fine, but so far has been either mono or right channel only from both speakers.

How do I connect my iPod to a stereo Kenwood


<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers contain no iPod connection port. Even the business hubs of high-end entertainment that interface with the computer via USB cannot provide connectivity to an iPod. But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back to see. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel of your iPod is connected. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Test the connection. Lower the volume on the Kenwood stereo and start a track playing on your iPod that you can recognize. Turn your volume until you play the iPod through the stereo to listen. If you hear no sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute" is off <br />

Just bought the brookstone wireless tv headphones. I have a Westinghouse 40 inch lcd tv. I plugged in the rca red/white into the audio out and I don't get any sound into the headphones?


I had the same problem with Brookstone wireless headset the only solution I found was plug in the red and white connectors to your cable box it works perfectly that way. Just make sure the red cable connector from the transmitter is connected to right red input connector on the box. I have a Comcast cable box. Now I need a solution for them on my PS3?

Hope can i send an input from I pod or TV into the


If you are asking how to send audio from your iPod or TV to a stereo receiver, you will need an adapter for the iPod but may not need one for your TV.

For the TV:
Check the back for two red-and-white round plugs: these are called RCA jacks. Most TVs will have "RCA IN" but fewer will have "RCA OUT (sometimes called MONITOR)." If you do have RCA outputs, simply find an RCA cable (with red-and-white male connectors on each end) that's long enough and connect it to an input on the back of the receiver. It doesn't matter which one.

If you don't have RCA outputs, you MIGHT be able to use a VCR if the VCR has RCA outputs. In that case you would connect your TV cable to the "RF IN" on the VCR. Then plug the yellow (video) RCA connector to the "RCA IN" on your TV, and the red-and-white connectors to your receiver. Then all of your audio would come out of the stereo instead of the TV. This can get complicated, however, because now you will be changing channels either on the cable box or DVR or wherever your TV comes from, or if you don't use a box you will change them on the VCR remote (because the TV will now be on "RCA IN or INPUT 1" at all times). In addition you will control the volume with the stereo remote.

For the iPod:
The best solution is to find a small adapter (I think Griffin makes one) that plugs into your iPod and transmits over a radio frequency you set. So for example, you change the adapter to FM 89.1, and then tune your stereo to 89.1, and as long as the iPod is reasonably close to your radio, the music will play. This is great because not only do you not have to hook up any wires, but it works on ANY radio (alarm clocks, shower radios, and car stereos)! Just be mindful when you purchase the adapter. You do not want to buy a radio transmitter intended for the car, which uses a 12V cigarette lighter plug, and try to use it at home. And if you buy one intended for home, keep in mind it won't let you charge the iPod in the car.

Good luck!

I have a samsung NC10. I have connected to my TV via the PC cable. I can see the screen but here no sounds. I have connected the red/yellow/white audio cable to the tv. It has a jack plug on the other end....


The cable you are using is a rca audio/video cable. The colors translate to:
  • red=audio,right
  • white=audio,left
  • yellow=composite video
Your laptop headphone input uses a ⅛′ (3.5 mm) mono and stereo (TRS).

You need a Stereo 3.5mm mini phone plug male to 2 RCA female connectors.

Connect your iPod to your TV with a DIY cable
The iPod A/V Cable is stylish and handy, but you may feel it's not worth the money; the Belkin cable gives you twice the value per foot but costs the same overall. For a less expensive alternative, find a standard A/V cable with three RCA plugs at one end (coded red, white, and yellow) and a 1/8-inch A/V plug with three bands at the other end.
To set up your iPod for playback, plug the 1/8-inch connector into your iPod's headphone port, and then plug the yellow, white, and red RCA connectors into the RCA jacks on your TV in this non-color-coded way:
