Getting Started
Congratulations on your purchase of the DLO HomeDock HD, bringing the music, videos, podcasts and more
from your iPod to life on your high-definition TV. Connecting HomeDock HD to your home entertainment
center is a snap. We will get you started in three easy steps:
STEP 1 - Set up your HomeDock HD
Properly connect the power, audio and video cables to your home entertainment center and remove the
plastic strip from your HomeDock HD Remote Control.
STEP 2 - Power up
Turn on your TV and select the correct input for HomeDock HD. Plugging in your HomeDock HD will turn it
on and start the boot-up process, which may take a few minutes.
STEP 3 – Dock your iPod, browse and enjoy
Dock your iPod, allowing it to pivot back and rest securely against the HomeDock HD support stand. Once
your iPod has initialized, use the included RF Remote Control to browse and select your iPod content on TV.
NOTE: For detailed information on setting up your HomeDock HD, see Setting Up HomeDock HD [pg.6].
IMPORTANT: On your iPod, ensure that “TV Out” under iPod Video Settings is set to either Ask or On in order
to enjoy the video content of your iPod using HomeDock HD. For iPod touch in particular, see Viewing the

Setting Up HomeDock HD
Your HomeDock HD is ready to use right out of the box with the included AV Cables.
For the best high-definition performance, we recommend you connect HomeDock HD to your TV using an
HDMI cable (available separately). If you do not have an HDMI-capable television or Home Entertainment
Center, there are several optional ways you can connect HomeDock HD:
™ Connect to your TV using S-Video or RCA connections (AV Cable included).
™ Connect to an AV receiver using S-Video, RCA, or HDMI connections.
™ Connect to your home stereo or powered speakers without using a TV. See Using HomeDock HD
with External Speakers [pg.18]
NOTE: Remove the thin plastic strip on the back of the included RF Remote Control to engage the battery.
IMPORTANT: On your iPod, ensure that “TV Out” under iPod Video Settings is set to either Ask or On in order
to enjoy the video content of your iPod using HomeDock HD. For iPod touch in particular, see Viewing the
Video Content of Your iPod touch [pg.9].

also choose to connect HomeDock HD to your TV via HDMI, then to your stereo receiver via the Digital
Audio Output (appropriate cables available separately).
4. Turn on your TV and/or home stereo and select the correct input(s) for HomeDock HD. At this time,
you’ll see a screen on your TV with a DLO logo and a small box of moving squares until your

5. Dock your iPod, allowing it to pivot back and rest securely against the HomeDock HD support stand.
Once your iPod has initialized, use the included RF Remote Control to browse and select your iPod
content on TV. See On-Screen Navigation [pg.10].
IMPORTANT: In order to maximize the performance of your HomeDock HD when using an HDMI cable, you
must first change the video resolution of HomeDock HD from Standard Definition to High Definition. To do so,
please follow these steps:
1. With your iPod docked, select Settings in the HomeDock HD Main Menu.
2. In the Settings Menu, select Resolution.
3. Change the selection from Standard Definition (PAL or NTSC) to High Definition (720p or 1080i).

Album Art and Your HomeDock HD
HomeDock HD can display Album Art for the track currently playing (if available) or while browsing by album.
Up to 250 Album Art images can be held in memory by your HomeDock HD. Once that limit is reached, your
HomeDock HD will delete the least-used image in order to store a new one.
NOTE: The 4th Generation iPod does not currently support external display of Album Art.
Album Art is displayed in several places throughout the user interface:
™ Whenever a selection is playing, the Album Art is displayed
in the Now Playing Banner near the bottom of the screen.
™ When browsing by album, the Album Art for the selected
album is shown (if available) as well as the Album Art for
the song currently playing.
NOTE: Larger artwork may take a few moments to download.
™ Several Screen Savers have the ability to display the
Album Art of the song currently playing.
12 | DLO HOMEDOCK HD USER MANUAL
HomeDock HD does not download Album Art until a song is played in order to save time during initialization.
It can take several seconds to load the artwork from your iPod; while the larger artwork is loading, your
HomeDock HD will display smaller artwork (if available).
NOTE: HomeDock HD will be unresponsive if you attempt to use the Remote during this process. You will see
a “Please Wait” notice while the artwork is loading.
Once displayed, the artwork is cached in HomeDock HD’s memory for faster retrieval later. If you’d like
HomeDock HD to retrieve Album Art even faster during use, choose the Cataloging option from the Settings
Menu. See Cataloging Album Art [pg.16].
If your current selection does not have any Album Art, or if the Album Art is unavailable, HomeDock HD will
display one of seven placeholder images:

Additional Usage
Using HomeDock HD with External Speakers
You may also use HomeDock HD with just your home stereo or powered speakers to control your iPod with
the included RF Remote Control, and to select and play music through external speakers without having a
TV connected.
1. Plug the included AC Power Adapter into the back of the HomeDock HD Base, and the other end into
any available AC power outlet.
2. Plug in either RCA audio cables (available separately) to the Left and Right RCA Audio Outputs, or an
1/8” mini-to-mini cable (available separately) to the Aux Input on the back of the HomeDock HD Base.
3. Connect HomeDock HD to the appropriate inputs on your home stereo or powered speakers.
4. Turn on your external speakers and select the correct input if necessary.
5. Select iPod Mode by pressing the Mode Button on the included HomeDock HD Remote Control.
See Remote Control Diagram [pg.10]
6. Navigate and control your iPod with the included Remote Control.
Using HomeDock HD with Other Audio Devices
HomeDock HD will also play the audio from other MP3 players, laptops or other digital devices through your
TV or home stereo via HomeDock HD’s Auxiliary Audio Input (labeled Aux Input). NOTE: HomeDock HD does
not support on-screen navigation when using the Aux-In Jack to play audio.
Using HomeDock HD with Standard-Definition Televisions
While HomeDock HD is designed to give you the best viewing experience on high-definition televisions, you
can still use it with your standard-definition television set. Just choose the appropriate standard-definition
format for your region from the Settings > Resolution menu.
Standard-Definition Settings:
Standard Def (PAL)
Standard Def (NTSC)
18 | DLO HOMEDOCK HD USER MANUAL
Frequently Asked Questions
DO I HAVE TO USE HOMEDOCK HD WITH A HIGH-DEFINITION TELEVISION?
No. While HomeDock HD was designed to give you the best viewing experience with a high-definition TV, you
can still use HomeDock HD with a standard-definition TV and the included AV Cables or your own S-Video
cable. See Setting Up HomeDock HD [pg. 6].
MY HOMEDOCK HD DOESN’T SEEM TO BE SETTING UP PROPERLY. WHAT’S WRONG?
First, ensure that you have selected the correct input source on your TV for the HomeDock HD. If your setup
is correct but HomeDock HD still does not recognize your iPod, undock your iPod. Then unplug the AC Power
Adapter from the HomeDock HD Base and wait 30 seconds before reconnecting. As usual, once plugged in,
you will need to allow a few minutes for the HomeDock HD to boot up.
Next, try disconnecting your AV or HDMI cable from the HomeDock HD Base, then reconnecting. Make note
of which input your are using on your TV. Remember, depending on the type of cables you are using, the
HomeDock HD boot-up process can take a few minutes. At this time, you’ll see a screen on your TV with a
DLO logo and a small box of moving squares until your HomeDock HD has finished booting up. You may dock
your iPod when boot-up is complete and a “No iPod Connected” screen appears.
I’VE CHECKED MY CONNECTIONS, BUT HOMEDOCK HD STILL WON’T RECOGNIZE MY IPOD. WHY?
Undock your iPod and reboot it by simultaneously holding down the Center and Menu Buttons until
the iPod shuts off and restarts with an Apple logo screen. Refer to your iPod manual for more detailed
instructions.
Make sure that you are in the desired mode: On-Screen Navigation Mode or iPod Mode. If your HomeDock
HD is in On-TV Navigation Mode, the iPod will display an “Accessory Attached” notice. If HomeDock HD is
in iPod Mode, the iPod menu screen will be displayed on the iPod. To change modes, simply push the Mode
Button on the included RF Remote Control. See Remote Control Diagram [pg.10]
Finally, you may need to update your HomeDock HD firmware. You can check which firmware version you
are currently running under the Settings > About menu. HomeDock HD features a USB input on the back of
the base to support firmware updates available from DLO. Simply visit http://www.dlo.com/support to find
the most current version for download. Save the update to a USB flash drive and connect the drive to your
HomeDock HD to initiate the update.
| 19
MY MUSIC OR VIDEO SOUNDS A LITTLE DISTORTED AND FUZZY. WHAT CAN I DO?
First, adjust volume for the best sound quality. If listening to your music through your HomeDock HD sounds unusually low or noisy, be sure that your HomeDock HD’s volume is set at an adequate level. The balance of volume
between your HomeDock HD and stereo/TV can affect the audio quality significantly. This is only necessary with
an AV connection. When using an HDMI connection, volume is not managed with your HomeDock HD.
Also, it is a good idea to adjust your iPod EQ settings. We recommend setting your iPod EQ to Off and adjusting
your TV or home stereo’s bass and treble controls to 0. Then you can experiment with iPod EQ settings, and adding bass and treble to your desired level.
NOTE: The sound quality on HomeDock HD is only as good as the quality of the source file.
WHY DOES MY HOMEDOCK HD SOMETIMES SEEM TO HAVE A LAG TIME BEFORE IT DISPLAYS MY IPOD CONTENT, LIKE ALBUM ART OR SONG INFORMATION?
The response delay time is usually HomeDock HD waiting for information from the iPod. Hard-drive based iPods
like the iPod classic or 5G iPod with video take longer than flash-based iPods like the iPod nano and iPod touch.
How long it takes depends on how much content is on the iPod and what information is being requested. For
instance, when you’ve selected a Screen Saver that displays “large” Album Art (if available),
it can take up to 10 seconds for the iPod to access that artwork. See Album Art and Your HomeDock HD [pg.12].
Once displayed, the artwork is cached in HomeDock HD’s memory for faster retrieval later. If you’d like
HomeDock HD to retrieve Album Art even faster during use, choose the Cataloging option from the Settings
Menu. See Cataloging Album Art [pg.16].
NOTE: The 4th Generation iPod does not currently support external display of album artwork.
THE HOMEDOCK HD INTERFACE IS FLICKERING AND SEEMS TO BE FROZEN. WHAT’S WRONG?
This is occasionally caused by the HDMI cable you are using. Simply disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cable
from the HomeDock HD Base to eliminate the flicker and un-freeze your HomeDock HD.
MY HOMEDOCK HD REMOTE CONTROL SEEMS TO BE FROZEN. WHAT DO I DO?
Check the Remote Control’s battery by pushing the small tab towards the battery tray while pulling the tray away
from the Remote. Then reinsert the battery. If this does not work, the battery may need to be replaced.
20 | DLO HOMEDOCK HD USER MANUAL
WHY DO MY VIDEOS APPEAR STRETCHED OR CROPPED ON MY TV SCREEN?
First, ensure that your TV is set to the appropriate viewing format. Then, depending on which iPod you are
using, either set your “Widescreen” iPod Video Settings to On, or set your “Fit To Screen” or “Fullscreen”
setting to Off in order to view the digital video content in your preferred format.
WHY ARE MY VIDEOS OR SLIDESHOWS ONLY PLAYING ON MY IPOD SCREEN INSTEAD OF ON MY TV?
On your iPod, check to see that your TV Out setting under Video/Photo Settings is set to either Ask or On.
Your iPod arrives in the Ask setting, so unless you change your iPod Settings to On, you will have to select
TV On each time you start up a video or slideshow. For iPod touch in particular, see Viewing the Video
Content of Your iPod touch [pg.9].
DOES MY HOMEDOCK HD HAVE A POWER-SAVER MODE?
Yes, it does. If no iPod is docked on your HomeDock HD for 30 minutes, HomeDock HD will go into Standby
Mode. To exit Standby Mode, dock your iPod or press any button on the Remote Control. If your iPod is still
docked and you press the Power button on the Remote Control to turn off your HomeDock HD, it will go into
Standby Mode as it continues to charge your iPod. To exit Standby Mode when your iPod is docked, press the
Power button on the Remote Control.
Also, if you do not dock your iPod within 5 minutes of the initial boot-up of your HomeDock HD, your
HomeDock HD will go into Standby Mode.
MY TV SCREEN IS BLANK, OR SHOWS JUST GRAY AND BLACK STATIC. WHAT’S WRONG?
If your HomeDock HD is connected to your TV using S-Video or RCA cables, your HomeDock HD may be set
up for HDMI resolution. If possible, plug your HomeDock HD in using HDMI cables and change the resolution
to standard-definition format in the Settings > Resolution menu. Then disconnect the HDMI cable and reconnect HomeDock HD to your TV with S-Video or RCA cables.
To change the resolution setting without being able to see the HomeDock HD interface on your TV screen,
enter the key sequence on your HomeDock HD Remote Control: UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, and
then press the Up or Down buttons to cycle through the four different resolutions. Give each setting a few
seconds to register with your TV before pushing the Up or Down button again. When the correct resolution
setting is selected, you will once again be able to see the HomeDock HD interface on your TV screen.
