Control Connections
IR Control
The VIA!migo may be controlled by IR or RS-232. IR control is the simplest
connection and will provide all control options but WILL NOT provide feedback when used with Olé Touchpads. Feedback, in the case of IR controlled
applications, occurs on a TV or VIA! Touch Panel dispaly.
Use a mono 3.5mm interconnect cable between an IR Out port from an ELAN
Multi-Room Controller or other IR device and the Remote In port on the
VIA!migo as shown in Figure 5.

RS-232 Control
RS-232 serial control provides reliable control from VIA! Touch Panels and
Olé Touchpads. In addition to control capabilities, RS-232 control allows
Olé Touchpads to display feedback (Title, Track, etc.). An ELAN SS1 System
Station is required to display feedback on Olé Touchpads. Use the included
RJ-45 to DB-9 Adaptor when connecting the VIA!migo to the SS1 COM Ports
1 or 2. COM Ports 3 and 4 may be utilized using a null modem adapter.
Note: Maximum distance between the VIA!migo and an SS1 is 300'.

Connecting VIA!migo to an ELAN Multi-Room
Controller
Remotely Located Source
VIA!migo connects to ELAN’s Multi-Room Controllers as a Source much like
a DVD player, VCR, or cable box. Figure 8 shows the VIA!migo hooked up
to an ELAN System12 using Cat-5 to connect an LSWP (Local Source Wall
Plate Kit to pass Audio, Video and IR between the VIA!migo and the S12
chassis using Cat-5.
Note: The LSWP is specific to S12 Systems and will not work with
other Multi-Room Controllers

Connecting To Your A/V System
To connect to your A/V System with or without a VIA! Touch Panel:
1. Plug the included AC power adapter into the back of the VIA!migo
base, and the other end into any available AC power outlet.
2. Plug the A/V Cable into the back of the VIA!migo base. Be sure to
match the color on the A/V plugs (Red, White and Yellow) with the
corresponding jack color or input type.
3. Plug the other end of the A/V Cable into the corresponding jacks of
any available input on the A/V system. (White plug - Left Audio, Red
plug - Right Audio and Yellow plug - Video).
When connecting the VIA!migo to an ELAN Multi-Room System, it is treated
exactly like any other Audio/Video source for purposes of audio and video
connections.
NOTE: The S-Video Out connection can be used for even better
video performance (S-Video cable not included).
4. If using a VIA! Touch Panel, use it to select and turn on your
VIA!migo. Also turn on your home stereo and select the correct input
for the VIA!migo.

Connecting Your iPod
Adjusting VIA!migo to Fit Your iPod
The VIA!migo can fit any dockable iPod. It can even be used with many iPod
protective cases left on. The first time you use your iPod, and if you ever
use another size iPod, you should adjust the VIA!migo’s Support Stand to
accommodate your particular iPod. See Figure 14 for an example.
To adjust the VIA!migo to fit your iPod:
1. Loosen the Support Stand screw and slide the Support Stand as far
back as it can go;
2. Connect your iPod by carefully lowering it onto the iPod dock
connector of the VIA!migo.
3. Slide the Support Stand toward the iPod until the iPod is gently rest
ing against the Support Stand Pad. The back of the iPod should be
parallel to the Support Stand and not leaning forward or backward.
4. Tighten the Support Stand Screw to keep in place. DO NOT
overtighten.

Operation
VIA!migo Modes
VIA!migo has two distinct modes; Dock Mode (On-Screen Navigation) and
iPod Mode. It’s very important to understand the differences between the
two.
NOTE: To toggle between iPod Mode and Dock (On-Screen
Navigation) Mode, simply issue the Mode IR command to toggle the
mode state or issue the discrete iPod Mode or Dock Mode command.
Dock Mode (On-Screen Navigation)
Dock Mode allows you to view, navigate and select your iPod media on your
TV screen or VIA! Touch Panel. You can change display settings, view currently playing song info, view songs by category, or use iPod song info as a
screensaver.
Use Dock Mode when:
•
•

FAQs
FAQ
Answer
Does the VIA!migo
charge battery in my
iPod?
Yes. The VIA!migo fully charges and powers
your iPod whenever your iPod is connected.
Do I have to use a TV
with the VIA!migo?
No. The VIA!migo is a music-based, remote
controlled home docking system for your iPod
that requires nothing but a stereo or powered speakers to play your iPod media. Of
course, to get the most out of your VIA!migo,
you should connect it to a TV, VIA! Touch
Panel and home stereo or ELAN Multi-Room
System. Remember, in order to use Dock
Mode with On-Screen Music Navigation to
select and choose your music, you have to
connect your VIA!migo to your TV or VIA!
Touch Panel.

Appendix B:
Auxiliary Input
The VIA!migo has an available Auxiliary Input on the side of the docking
station. This stereo 3.5 mm mini jack allows input from an outside source to
pass through the Left/Right audio outputs of the docking station.
When this Auxiliary Input is used, it bypasses the iPod signal until the
input jack has been removed. If the 3.5 mm mini jack is inserted while the
iPod is docked and playing that will also cause the iPod audio signal to be
bypassed.
