Excerpt: I’m not sure if this is a problem with the radio reception or the speakers. I did the same thing with the iPod volume and didn’t notice any static. I have to say that this docker delivers an amazing sound. I currently don’t have my antenna fully taken out so that may be why my reception isn’t that good. Anyways, the bottom line is that this product is definitely worth it. I find that the weather band is extremely useful especially since it doesn’t have an AM band.
Summary: The alarm would not consistantly trigger the ipod and when it did the snooze would not always work - never a problem with my ihome - I think the problem is in the control chipset - not sure though - my ipod touch was version 1 but with updated software to the most current.
