The aux input requires a preamp'd input. I connected mine through the CD changer with an adapter from DICE DUO. It even allows you to toggle through your selections using the handlebar controls, and scrolls the titles across the radio LCD screen. Google it to find them for sale. Before that, I just got a cassette adaptor and played it through the cassette player. There is a lot of information on the K1200LT riders forum also. Google that too.

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?


The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
technical114_34.jpg
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
technical114_35.jpg
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

6. Find a song on your iPod and press the Play button whenthe auxiliary input is activated. If you do not hear anything, make sure thevolume on the iPod device and radio. If the iPod is playing your song, you'llsee the song progresses on the iPod screen.

How do you connect an Ipod throught the aux input?


what type of input does your radio have? if its a head phone jack input just get a headphone to headphone jack wire from radioshack and plug one end into you ipod and the other into the radio, set your radio to aux and your ipods volume to 70-80%. if its an rca input, it exactly the same but you will need an rca to headphone jack wire. if its usb, just use the cable that came with you ipod.

I want to connect my ipod to the aux inputs on back of unit


Hello gcd_sun,

The RCA jacks on the back of the Pioneer DEH-1500 are preamp outputs, not inputs. They are to connect an external amplifier for additional speakers or subwoofers.

The output from your iPod is probably "bleeding over" into the receiver detector stage. When the antenna is disconnected, the signal passes into the amp by itself. Connecting the antenna provides enough signal so that both are amplified.

To connect the iPod, you need to purchase a wireless iPod adapter, or a new head unit that includes an "AUX" input or a dedicated adapter for the iPod.

Hope this helps.

MP3, IPOD, CD doesn't appear when I press "Source"


Easy.

If you read your owner's maunal, page 26, the USB is designed for a flash drive (up to 4GB), not an Ipod.
If you would like to play your iPOD, purchase the IPC008 (Ipod Lead) and you're done!

Ipod input?


I've got an Alpine CVA1004 and use my ipod on the aux input of the headunit. The alpine-ipod interface was too confusing for me, with the ipod connected to the aux input, I just control the music from the Ipod, I find it easier that way.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control


Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
