damage and will often require extensive
work by a qualified technician to restore the
apparatus to its normal operation,
E. If the apparatus has been dropped or damaged in any way, and
F. When the apparatus exhibits a distinct
change in performance this indicates a need
for service.
Precautions
1. Recording Copyright—Unless it’s for personal
use only, recording copyrighted material is illegal without the permission of the copyright
holder.
2. Care—Occasionally you should dust the unit all
over with a soft cloth. For stubborn stains, use a
soft cloth dampened with a weak solution of
mild detergent and water. Dry the unit immediately afterwards with a clean cloth. Don’t use
abrasive cloths, thinners, alcohol, or other chemical solvents, because they may damage the finish or remove the panel lettering.
3. Never Touch this Unit with Wet Hands—Never
handle this unit or its power cord while your
hands are wet or damp. If water or any other liquid gets inside this unit, have it checked by your
Onkyo dealer.

Replacing the Battery
Aiming the Remote Controller
Use only a battery of the same type (CR 2025).
When using the remote controller, point it
toward the RI Dock’s remote control sensor, as
shown below.

2. While pressing the tab as shown, slide out
the old battery.
Slide the new battery into the battery compartment with the positive side facing up.
3. Slide the cover shut.
Notes:
• If the remote controller doesn’t work reliably, try replacing the battery.
• If you intend not to use the remote controller for a long time, remove the battery
to prevent damage from leakage or corrosion.
• An expired battery should be removed as
soon as possible to prevent damage from
leakage or corrosion.
Caution: Replacing the battery incorrectly
may cause an explosion. Use only a battery
of the same type or an equivalent.
8
Notes:
• If the RI Dock is placed on top of another
component, the remote controller’s signal may be obstructed and the remote
controller may not work reliably.
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the RI Dock is subjected to bright
light, such as direct sunlight or invertertype fluorescent lights. Keep this in mind
when installing.
• If another remote controller of the same
type is used in the same room, or the RI
Dock is installed close to equipment that
uses infrared rays, the remote controller
may not work reliably.
• Don’t put anything on top of the remote
controller, such as a book or magazine,
because a button may be pressed continuously, thereby draining the batteries.
• The remote controller may not work reliably if the RI Dock is installed in a rack
behind colored glass doors. Keep this in
mind when installing.
• The remote controller will not work if
there’s an obstacle between it and the RI
Dock’s remote control sensor.

Hooking Up the RI Dock
Depending on the Onkyo amp that you’re
using, choose connection method A or B.
A: Connect the RI Dock’s AUDIO OUT L/R jacks
and VIDEO OUT jack to an RI Dock-compatible input on your Onkyo amp. (You might
need to change the input display to “HDD”
or “DOCK.”)
B: Connect the RI Dock’s AUDIO OUT L/R jacks
to the TAPE IN jacks on your Onkyo amp.
And connect the RI Dock’s VIDEO OUT jack
directly to your TV.
See your amp’s instruction manual for details.
AC adapter
Note: When the AC adapter is unplugged or
not connected to the RI Dock, the RI Dock
will output no sound or video,
functions
will not work, and your iPod’s battery will
not be charged.
Caution: Connect the supplied
cable to
only
jacks. Do not connect headphones
to the
jack, as it will damage your equipment.

or TV, using the supplied Component Video
■ If you’ve connected the RI Dock’s AUDIO
OUT L/R jacks to your amp’s TAPE IN jacks
and also want to connect the RI Dock’s
VIDEO OUT jack to your amp
Connect the RI Dock’s VIDEO OUT jack to an
unused video input on your amp.
When you want to watch an iPod slideshow or
video, select the video input source first, and
then select the TAPE input source. Your amp
will output the audio being fed to the TAPE
input, and because the video source doesn’t
change when the TAPE input source is selected,
it’ll continue to output the video being fed to
the video input.
■ What to do if you already have a component connected to your amp’s TAPE input
or RI Dock-compatible input
Connect the RI Dock to an unused AV input on
your amp, and select the input source manually.

Troubleshooting
■ There’s no sound
• Make sure your iPod is actually playing.
• Make sure your iPod is inserted properly in the RI
Dock.
• Make sure your amp is turned on, the correct input
source is selected, and the volume is turned up.
• Make sure the plugs are pushed in all the way.
• Make sure the AC adapter is connected to a suitable wall outlet and connected to the RI Dock.
■ The RI Dock’s remote controller doesn’t
control your iPod
• If the RI Dock is placed on top of another component, the remote controller’s signal may be
obstructed and the remote controller may not
work reliably. In this case, try repositioning the RI
Dock.
• Make sure your iPod is properly inserted in the RI
Dock.
• When you use the RI Dock’s remote controller,
point it toward the RI Dock (see page 8).
• Some of the remote controllers buttons work differently depending on the OSD mode: On or Off
(see page 7).
■ The onscreen display doesn’t appear on
your TV
• Set the OSD mode to On (see page 10).
• Try setting the TV system to PAL or NTSC (see
page 14).
• Select the video output mode (composite/component) according to the video input on your TV (see
page 10).
■ To watch an iPod slideshow or video on
TV:
• Set the OSD mode to Off, and use your iPod’s controls or remote controller to select and start the
slideshow or video.
■ Your amp’s remote controller doesn’t control your iPod
• Make sure your iPod is properly inserted in the RI
Dock.
• If your amp’s remote controller has remote mode
buttons, make sure you’ve selected the right
mode.
• Check the RI Dock’s RI MODE switch setting.
• When you use your amp’s remote controller, point
it toward your amp.
• The RI Dock must be connected to your amp with
both an
cable and an audio cable.
• Make sure the RI Dock’s RI MODE switch setting
and the remote control mode match this setting.
See your amp’s manual for more information.
If you still can’t control your iPod, start playback by
pressing your iPod’s Play button. Remote operation should then be possible.
• Make sure your amp’s remote controller is set to
the correct remote control ID.
