IPod Support for Samsung HT-X50

Whenever I hook up my ipod nano to the usb port of my HT-X50, the tv displays weird 4-5 letter combinations, instead of the song and artist name. This makes navigating to a desired song impossible. Is there a compaibility issue? The box says iPod support. How can I fix this problem? Thanks yall.

Re: iPod Support for Samsung HT-X50

The ipod scrambles the names of the tracks making it impossible to find songs, thus encouraging you to buy an official ipod player.its all about money

Playing ipod on samsung MME460D

I've just been struck down with this too on my newly purchased MM-E460D. I think I've worked it out, its just a poor description and manual. iPod mode" means choose the music off the iPod via a connected TV whereas "Remote iPod" is choose the music off the iPod via the Samsung remote and also directly from the iPod interface. I've been there for days trying to get "iPod mode" to work via the iPod interface.

Samsung HT-X50. I just installed a new 50" plasma TV and cabled the digital out to the Samsung HT-X50 digital in via an optical cable. The TV audio is now heard through the HT-X50 speakers but only...

Look into the TV's audio controls. If it was my setup, I'd NOT send audio through the TV to the hifi, nor video through the hifi to the TV. Additional hops and interconnects cause problems even though they're theoretically transparent.

Trying to connect the samsung home theatre model - HT-TP33 wih Apple iPOD nano through USB port. But it shows "No File" and gets disconnected. Kindly suggest how to connect it.

The fact that it shows "No File" would tend to indicate that the unit has been connected but there is no compatible file for it to play. Units like these usually only play MP3 or WMA files. Apple iPods usually store files in AAC format which the unit may not be able to play.

V ipod mode in Samsung HT-Z420 home theater system not working

Plug a yellow video cable into the TV (IN) and the Sound system (Out) then go onto AV1 on the TV or which ever port you plugged the cable into and play a movie and u can see it. A menu doesnt come up like the A ipod funtion so it comes up no signal until u play an actual movie on the ipod. If u dont have a yellow video cable i think u can use the white or red audio ones.

Ipod Hook-up

Ipod's utilize headphone jack style connectors which can be purchased just about anywhere electronics are sold, however most dvd players utilize RCA jacks so you must purchase an adapter from ipod jack to RCA jack it runs usually about $10-25.00 also you can purchase a FM transmitter kit for about the same price but sound quality is not as good so my suggestion is go for rca converter and hook it up to audio input in back of dvd player or stereo for best quality.

Connecting a Zune MP3 to the HT-X50

Get an Aux cable(about $10) and connect it to your Zune player and to Aux 1 on your Sound system. Make sure you change your function to Aux 1. Do not connect USB or anything else. That's working for me.

Connecting an iPod to a HT-Q100 Home Cinema System

If you connect an iPod via USB, the system will treat it as a hard drive and will use its (very basic) on-screen system to display your tracks.

I found the best way to get a result is to use a 3.5 (stereo) jack to RCA phono stereo input into the auxillary input on the back (side). To hear your iPod, select AUX on your Samsung and then select and play on your iPod. Bobs your uncle!!
