If you want to use the TuneCenter but do not have a TV connected, you will need to dock the iPod and press Power on the TuneCenter remote. Wait for the iPod screen to say "Griffin - OK to disconnect." Now press the Video button on the remote. The iPod screen should change back to the familiar iPod menu, which you can now navigate with the TuneCenter remote.
If you have a 5th Generation iPod with Video, an iPod Classic, a 1st Generation iPod Touch, or a 3rd Generation iPod Nano, then yes! The bottom of the case is exposed, allowing enough clearance for the iTrip (2006).Unfortunately, due to the shape of the 4th Generation, 2nd Generation iPod Nano and 2nd Generation iPod touch, the opening of the iClear could not be flush with the bottom of the iPod. For this reason, the iTrip Dock cannot be used without removing the case.
Yes, as long as the laptop has a built in 6 pin FireWire port. FireWire ports (IEEE 1394 or iLink) that use a 4 pin connector do not provide any power. They are used for data transfer only.
Also, be sure to keep the laptop plugged into a power source if you will be using the iFire for extended periods of time.
No, unfortuantely the radioSHARK software is not able to record internet streaming broadcasts at this time.
The AirClick and iTrip can be connected to the iPod at the same time if the iPod is a 3rd or 4th Gen iPod, or iPod Mini. These iPods have both a headphone jack and remote connector on top, as well as the dock connector on the bottom, so the user could potentially connect one device to the top of the iPod and another device to the bottom. Both iPod accessories should operate normally. Many configurations involving two devices have not been tested, but generally the only issue with such a set-up is the significant drain on the iPod's battery life. If one of the devices does not respond, a soft reset of the iPod while these devices are connected typically opens up communication with the iPod and fixes any problems.
The iMic was configured for Mic and Line Level devices, such as standard computer microphones and tape decks. Those devices (and there are many types) typically are high impedance products that connect via unbalanced cables. Many, if not most, professional or higher end microphones are low impedance products that connect via balanced cables. Those types of devices require preamplification to bring them up to Line Level. This can be accomplished by using the pre-amps of mixing consoles or by using an impedance matching transformer. If you don't have a mixer, the transformers are readily available at electronic supply houses and consumer outlets such as Radio Shack.
