    I did not know this. I had my ipod docked next to me because i just updated it and i went to hit next with my remote and my ipod lit up. for a second i stared at it and then realized as i hit the buttons on the remote it was controlling the ipod as well.

    I have one of the older ipods ( video, plastic front )

    this shit is :noes:

    though this remote did come with the dock so maybe that is why? im not sure :o

    Figured this out while I was controlling my MBP with it and then my ipod kept lighting up and turning up the volume.

    the little black circle on your dock is a remote receiver.

    so no one goes through their preferences
    then you buy shit that you don't even know features it has because you can't go through the manual?

    if i bought something and a remote was included, chances are, i'd want to know what that remote does...

    jesus fuck some of you mac shack crew are fucking stupid...

    i didnt really need/ want one of the docs. got it as a gift. so since i was never that interested in it i never looked into what it does. i just thought it made your ipod stand up as opposed to laying flas when updating.

    oh well.

    This thread got me thinking... so I started trying stuff around the house.

    It turns out, the remote that came with my TV actually controls the TV too!
