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.

1. Using the supplied AV cable, connect the RI Dock’s AUDIO OUT L/R jacks to a suitable audio input on your amp. And connect the RI Dock’s VIDEO OUT jack to a video input on your Onkyo amp or TV. If your Onkyo amp or TV has a component video input jack, connect the RI Dock’s COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks to a component video input jack on your Onkyo amp or TV, using the supplied Component Video
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 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/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.
