Hi Hans-Dieter,

I have a *C* model (C240) and found I needed to change the audio output
when I ran in a docking station (a Griffin iTrip car FM transmitter in
my case).

I would expect the same will be the case with the *E* model.

For a starting point, see my patch:
It needs to be enhanced, but does get the job done for me.

Best regards,
