To see video output on your televison, you need one of hte following versions of the Ipod:

  • iPod touch
  • iPhone (software version 1.1.1 or later required)
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
When you plug the cord into your Audio receiver, the Ipod is only sending audio to the receiver. For your iPod to send video output to your television, you will need to buy an AV cable for your tv. Here is the link to Apple's website where you can view the A/V cables that will allow you to watch video on your television. Here it is

How do I hook my ipod to this yamaha device HTR-5850 -- is there a piece of hardware I can get to interface? thanks


Get a 1/8" miniplug-to-RCA-cable adapter and plug the headphone output directly into any compatible input on the receiver. Press PLAY.

Read the article (it's short). Don't buy into the hype about better cables. IPOD's don't stack up as hi-fi to begin with and cables are cables are cables....

I am trying to hook up my Yamaha Universal Dock YDS-11 for my iPod touch into my Yamaha HTR 5830 Amp but there is not where to plug it into. Do I need another type of cables to do this.


Hi, I'm afraid that your receiver doesn't support YDS-11. You can check it at yamaha site. This dock uses special cable and special connector on the receiver (which yours doesn't have).
So the only way to connect your iPod to receiver is via analog audio output (jack connector on the iPod).

I have a HTR 5650 receiver and a 4gig apple ipod. I am looking for a way to hook my ipod to my receiver so I can hear the music through my receiver, and if possible get the video to my t.v.


Yamaha does make a docking station for the iPod but your receiver doesn't have the input for it. You can use this cable, http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=208112882&listingid=57249305 and connect the cables to the back of the receiver. To set up the iPod tv out settings go here http://macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2005/11/18/video-ipod.html . Good luck!

HTR 5790


Hi,


Yes, you would need an iPod to RCA Cable that will connect to your iPod and to the RCA Auxilliary input of the Yamaha HTR-5790 7.1 Channels Receiver. Similar to a Cygnett Groove Transit - MP3 Phone to RCA Stereo Cable or an iPod to RCA Retractable Cable.


Good luck and kind regards.
