Summary: I bought this receiver together with the ipod dock, thinking this would be easy and the two would work well in sync. I am not a geek, but can use basic computer, blackberry, etc and make simple fixes. But this manual is the most obtuse thing I have ever tried to delve into. It's horrible, and written for the kind of people who don't need it. The word "ipod" or "dock" never makes an appearance. Instead, it's fleetingly alluded to as "hdd" but not in any meaningful way.
