How do I connect my GPX player to my television?
There is a video output on the back of your GPX alarm clock. However, only on the iPod video model and the iPod photo model will you be able to use a composite video cable (yellow-tipped cable) to connect your iPod to your television. There is also a AUX OUT port which acts as a headphone jack or an output for stereo speakers.
Why can I not control my mp3 player?
- On the Photo iPods, go to Photos. Then, go to the Slideshow Settings. From there, scroll down and set the TV Out option to ON. Make sure that the Output Signal is set to NTSC as well. Go into your Photo Library and select the photos you wish to see on your television screen. This option is right below the TV Out option.
- On the Video iPods, proceed the same way as the Photo iPods to view your photographs. To view videos, go to Videos. Scroll down to and select Video Settings. From there, scroll down and set the TV Out option to ON. Make sure that the Output Signal is set to NTSC as well. You may want to turn the Widescreen option to Off if you do not have a widescreen television.
How do you set the alarm?
- If the mp3 player you are using is not an iPod, you will not be able to control your mp3 player using the controls on the alarm clock. The auxiliary port (AUX IN) is only meant to distribute sound to two speakers as if it were transferring an audio signal to your headphones.
- If you are using an iPod shuffle, you will not be able to control the playback using your alarm clock controls because the shuffle model does not have the same interface that other iPods have. You will need to insert an Auxiliary Line-In Cord into the headphone jack of your iPod shuffle and connect the opposite end to the AUX IN port on the back of your iLive player.
Why can I not hear any sound using my docked iPod?
- Press and hold the ALM SET button.
- While holding the ALM SET button, press the HR button until you have selected the hour you would like the alarm to sound.
- While holding the ALM SET button, press the MIN button until you have selected the number of minutes past the hour.
- To turn the alarm ON, switch the AUTO switch to the MUSIC or BUZZ setting.
- To have your iPod play as an alarm, remember to set the AUTO switch to MUSIC and the AM-FM-iPod/AUX switch to iPod/AUX.
If there is an Auxiliary Line-In cord inserted into the AUX IN jack on the back of your GPX clock, you will not be able to hear the music from your iPod. Remove this cord before using your iPod.
Is my GPX player compatible with the sixth generation iPod classic, third generation iPod nano, and iPod touch?
The sixth generation iPod classic, the third generation iPod nano, and the iPod touch are able to be played and recharged using this iPod docking system. For a sixth generation 80GB iPod classic, it is best to use dock insert 9. For a sixth generation 160GB iPod classic, it is best to use dock insert 6. For the third generation iPod nano, there is not a dock insert available that will support this type of iPod. For the iPod touch, it is best to use dock insert 9.
Why am I unable to use the VIDEO OUTPUT on my sixth generation iPod classic, third generation iPod nano, and iPod touch?
These iPod models have a new hardware requirement that prevents the user from enabling the VIDEO OUTPUT. This device does not meet that hardware requirement. Within the video settings, there is an option for TV Out. The fifth generation iPod video and fourth generation iPod with color display would allow you to turn this function On to output the video (or just photos on the fourth generation iPod) from your device to be played on your television. Within these new iPods, this function is not available unless the iPod detects that it is connected to a device that meets this hardware requirement.
NOTE: Your docking system will be able to play music and recharge your iPod without interruption. This is only a restriction preventing the output of video to your television.
I have one of
the new iPods (Nano 4th gen. or iTouch 2nd gen.). Are these compatible with this unit?
The new iPods are compatible and
will play on this unit but some of the units can’t charge the iPod. This is due to recent changes by Apple on new
iPods after our unit was released. The
battery life on the new iPods is greatly improved requiring less frequent
charging. We have made changes and
updated our units to be able to charge the new iPods; however, some of the older
models still in circulation won’t have this charging ability. Look for the model number on the back of the
unit and note the suffix number. Any
model with a suffix number of “E1” or higher has been updated and will charge
the new iPods. For models with no suffix
number, these will only play the iPod but won’t charge it. With these older version GPX units you will
need to charge your iPod via the computer using the provided USB cord. Alternatively, you can purchase an AC adaptor
we offer at special savings that will charge your iPod. Call us at 314-621-2881 and press option 2
for the Parts Dept to order the optional AC adaptor.
I have one of the new iPods (Nano
4th gen., iTouch 2nd gen., or the Classic 120GB). What bracket do I use?
This unit has a universal well and
you should use the bracket that came with your new iPod. Or, if you prefer, you can substitute the
brackets included with the unit as follows:
Nano 4th gen. - # 8, iTouch 2nd gen. – # 14, and
Classic 120GB – #9.
