I think the red/white RCA plugs on the back of the CDE-7858 are outputs for the sub-woofer -- they won't work for aux inputs like iPod.  According to Alpine dealers, the 7858 will not accept an aux input -- bummer, I had the same desire. R, Jim

What's your problemI bought a used car that has an alpine cda 9805 radio. It has an auxillary cable that appears can hook up to my I pod nano. I can't find the function/ mode on the radio to g


The source/power button in the top left corner changes the mode. Press the button until the aux appears. The auxillary device must be plugged in to register on the stereo.

How can I hook my I pod to it it dont say aux or anything it has


Goto your local best buy or equivalent and ask them for a wireless transmitter it plugs into your ipod and transmits on the unused portion of the lower band of the radio. like 87.9fm and when the connection is made you can play your tunes and have it come over the radio.

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!

Hook up the remote wire from the head unit (grey w/ orange stripe) to the power antenna wire (blue) on the wiring harness adapter.

Getting my i-pod to play on my stereo


Does you deck have the Ipod Ready function print on it? It might not come with the option. If it does then just take it to a local stereo shop for advice, it should not cost any money. Goodluck.

The RCA red and white plugs are OUTPUTS to connect to an amplifier. You are driving one audio source against another-which isn't good. There is no aux input to connect your iPod to. Copy your Ipod music to a CD-R instead and then play it in the pioneer.
