    Hello,

    So I installed my Kenwood DNX5120 and attached the KCA-iP301V cable and my 4th generation nano won't play or be recognized. I look high and low in the manual but can't see where I can set it. It only shows how to use it and makes the assumption that it's plug and play. Am I missing something? I can't get the ipod to play. :(

    Any help would be greatly apppreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Rob

    Thanks Jonny!

    I think I found the issue. A firmware update is required to fix this issue. I suggest anyone who has a Kenwood deck (or any other brand for that matter) research to see what updates are available for your system. I'll be updated my deck tonight and will report back on whether or not it fixed my problem.

    Here's the list of fixes for the DNX 5120 -

    Improved functions[​IMG](2009.02.26)

    Supports the connection of iPod with KCA-iP301V
    •Corrected the defect caused at the time of Navigation startup (only for DNX model)
    •Corrected the defect of SIRIUS Category display (only for North America models)[​IMG](2008.09.24)
    •Corrected the defect caused by connecting the satellite radio receiver to KCA-BT200. (Only for USA)
    •Corrected the defect caused by playing a WMA file.
    •Corrected the defect of disharmony of clock display between the 12-hour and 24-hour format. (Only for models with 24-hour clock display format)[​IMG](2008.04.11)
    •Bluetooth Hands Free Unit Control function
    •Scan and Random playback function of USB device
    •Scrolls the list and makes a selection by front panel knob
    •Slide show(JPEG) function
    •MPEG1 and MPEG2 file playback function of USB device
    •DivX ID display
    •HD Radio Unit (KTC-HR200) Control function (Only for USA)

    Thanks for the help, my iPod is updated, my deck was not! So I updated my deck from version 1.5.0 to version 2.4.0, BIG difference and it solved all my problems. I'll be starting another thread to show the goodness of updating your deck, whomever made it...

    Take care!

    Rob
