Make sure the dock wire is connected to the right place, make sure that your version of the iPod is listed as a compatible model - the Philips iPod docks are picky. Also, make sure the home theater system is in DOCK mode.

Can i plug an ipod or mp3 to this system

By looking online I see there is a aux input for your system. Get a cable with a stereo mini plug on each end. This is the end you find on MP3 player headphones. Plug the cable in and choose Aux with your source button . You will have to turn up your volume on the mp3 player some, maybe half way....and could be higher depending on the unit. The RCA volume must be used also, set it to at least 25% and give it a try. Adjust MP3 player input down as needed.

On the front of the RTD 225 it says "MP3" well is there anyway i can hook up my mp3 or ipod to the home theater system?

Any iPod or MP3 player at its most basic level is just an ordinary analog audio source.

If you look in the manual, page 14...

For just listening, any audio device with a headphone/earbud output can be connected to any available analog Line Level input (except PHONO) with a simple adapter.

My apple i pod won't play "shuffle" on samsung lcd home theater system

On all home theater systems some are very particular about what options play and do not. For example on my Samsung I can hit play/pause but I cannot shuffle either. On my LG I could though downstairs, so it could just be that specific model. I called Samsung and they said they are sorry but that is just what the home theater does.

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.

Maybe because is only read audio, like Photos and mp3 audio only, expecially if read format llike "High Mat" to read photos and music, try to go to instructions manual and see the format what your dvd read.
