My Onkyo s-5300 home theater comes with an accessory iPod dock. When I dock
my iPod nano 1g (running the latest iPod firmware and the latest Rockbox
official release) to my regular iPod docks, the iPod works with no problems;
meaning it plays instantly.
However, if I turn on or restart the iPod and dock it onto the s-5300's
dock, nothing will happen. I've checked the manual, tried everything I know
of, including turning the TV on before docking etc, diferent power on
orders, still no audible playback, though rockbox shows the wps and is
actually playing the music, since you can hear it through the headphones if
you plug them in.
If I put it on one of my regular iPod docks though, restart rockbox, start
playback of a song, then undock it from that dock and move it back to my
s-5300's dock, after about 30 secs or more, it'll start playing like
nothing. It however won't dock at all to my s-5300's dock unless I go
through the hassle of docking it on a regular iPod dock first and then
moving it over.
My question is, what could the cause be? I don't think it has to do with rb,
just wondering if there's some settings I can look at, or if there's
something I should do different? Could it be an issue with the ht's dock?
Perhaps the iPod?
Not sure why it works when the iPod is first docked and restarted on a
normal iPod dock. But if after it's working on the s-5300's dock, if I
restart it again, it won't work. The iPod does turn on, load rockbox etc,
but there's just no audible playback, so I have to do the same thing, take
it to a regular dock, dock it, restart it, start playback, then move it
back. Is there a startup flag or something that let's the pod know its
docked? How does rockbox handle docks, is it officially supported? As I
said, this is the first time I've encountered this, both of my regular docks
work fine though.
Also, when the s-5300's dock is working, I should be able to control it via
the home theater, however that doesn't work either. Could this part be
related to the fact that rockbox responds differently to remote/dock
commands, or it perhaps doesn't support that feature?
Sorry for the confusing explanations and bunch of questions, just trying to
give as many details as I can to reproduce the issue, since most people
might not know exactly what I'm talking about. I'm just trying to see if
anybody's ever encountered this problem/situation, or if anybody has any
ideas etc. I haven't loaded the iPod firmware and taken it for a spin on the
s-5300's dock directly, since I use rockbox exclusively, but I might try
that when I get a chance.
Any thoughts, comments, suggestions, questions or ideas welcome!
P.S. This is not such a big deal to me, but it's the first thing I find that
this awesome firmware (rockbox) can't do, so just want to see if I can fix
it or at least find the issue if it's not rb related.
