Getting Started
About the RI Dock
With the Onkyo RI Dock, you can easily play the
music stored on your Apple iPod/iPhone
through your Onkyo audio system and enjoy
great sound, and watch iPod/iPhone slideshows and videos on your TV. In addition, the
onscreen display (OSD) allows you to view, navigate, and select your iPod/iPhone model’s contents on your TV, and with the supplied remote
controller, you can control your iPod/iPhone
from the comfort of your sofa. You can even use
your Onkyo amp’s remote controller to operate
your iPod/iPhone.
, which stands for Remote Interactive, is an
exclusive Onkyo control system that allows all
-capable Onkyo audio components to be
turned on or off together, and your amp to turn
on automatically and select the appropriate
input source when playback is started on a
source component. It also allows you to control
your iPod/iPhone with your amp’s remote controller.
In this manual, the DS-A4 Remote Interactive
Dock is referred to as the “RI Dock.”

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.
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.
Conversion Cable.
The input you use depends on the type of
Onkyo amp you have. See your amp’s
instruction manual for details.
2. Using the supplied  cable, connect the RI
Dock’s  jack to an  jack on one of the
Onkyo components in your system.
3. Connect the supplied AC adapter to the RI
Dock’s DC IN jack.
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/iPhone model’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.
■ If you’ve connected the RI Dock’s AUDIO
OUT L/R jacks to your amp’s TAPE IN jacks

unused video input on your amp.
When you want to watch an iPod/iPhone 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.

the RI Dock.
• When you use the RI Dock’s remote controller,
