RCA Inputs for Pioneer AVM P100

I want to connect my ipod via RCA cables to this unit.

On inspection I can see 2 clearly labled RCA inputs at the back of the head unit, however I can't get the head unit to pick up these as a source?

The unit is in an ex-japanese car so some of the menu structure is in english, some in Japanese.

To change to other sources e.g CD, tuner, all you do is press the source key on the unit or remote

    I can't find that model number online either, but that is what it says on the front left corner of the unit. (I've double checked)

    I have a cable to plug my ipod into the RCA inputs at the back, how do I tell the unit it has another device plugged in to it?

    I have a cable to plug my ip-od into the RCA input at the back. How do I get the unit to recognize that it has a device plugged in there?

    I can't find the model AVM P100 anywhere.
    Are you sure this is correct?

    You'll have to get a special cable that plugs into what would either be a short cable at the back of the unit with an 'elbow' shaped connector, or a small rectangular socket in the back of the player.

    You need to tell the unit that it has another device plugged into it.

    The connection system is cal 'IP-BUS'.

An I-Pod connection box connects to the RCA inputs and the IP-BUS connection.

Here is a picture from the AVM P7000R manual showing the connections the IP-BUS lead is marked by the red square.

    I am assuming you have a socket that fits the blue plug in the picture.

    This may help.

    put unit into standby and hold the 'F' key this gives you a function menu that allows you to enable the "AUH ON" this enables the axillary input for any device connected to the IP BUS port.

I tried connecting a ipod cord in the back of the recievers ports and the volume can't be controlled by the reciever, is there a aux input option for this reciever or is it to old.

How did you "connect" an Ipod to the receiver? If you plugged in RCAs then you were probably plugging into the pre-amp outputs of the stereo. There is an aux option from pioneer (CDRB10) which plugs into the blue squarish plug on the back. I think its a CDRB20 if you ever wanted to add a CD changer as well.

How do you hook up your ipod through the rca cable hookups in the back without the radio still playing?

This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.

First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.

Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.

Hi, I am trying to get the aux input to work and am wondering which set of rca outputs to use, front, rear, or constant level? I have not been able to find out which one to use from my manual. I have...

There is either a headphone size jack on the back labeled aux or a blue square plug. If it is the headphone jack then you need a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. But if I remember right you have the blue plug and need to buy the auxillary adapter. Then you need a 3.5mm to rca cable. The outputs are only outputs not inputs. Turning the Aux on in the menu does bring it under Source now.

Car stereo pre-out signal noise

Two things, a ground loop isolator in-line with the RCA's between the head unit and the first amp.....also a noise reducing capacitor ( $5 or$6 at an auto parts store) on the alternator 12v post will reduce or remove the hum.

RCA ports on back of a Pioneer cd player

Well you should have two sets, front and rear. Either of those sets can be used to go to the amp and it should work fine bridged. If your problem still exists then either you are getting a bad signal form the RCA outputs on the deck or have anouther problem somewhere in the system like in the amp or amp connections. What exactly does the amp do?

I can't figure out how to put my pioneer deh 10 in auxiliary mode. I bought one of those audio cables to plug in the red and white jacks in the back, and connect my mp3 player, and I can't figure out how...

Sorry, but I don't think you can use the rca's for an aux-in. I bought a deh-10 new and there is nothing in the owners manual that even mentions useing the rca's for an aux-in.
Used it long enough to opperate it in the dark and nothing in the setup menues for changing those rca's from outs to ins.

RF Modulator

The RF modulator changes the outputs from RCA (red, white, and yellow) to a Coaxial Cable (COAX).

You connect the DVD players RCA outputs to the RCA Inputs on the RF Modulator, then connect the COAX Output from the RF Modulator to the television.

Best of Luck.
