Pairing the Apple Remote with the iPod Universal Dock

The Apple Remote works with other compatible Apple products that have a built-in infrared (IR) receiver. To prevent your Apple Remote from interfering with other docks, computers, or IR devices nearby, you can pair it to work only with your iPod Universal Dock.

How to pair the Apple Remote with the iPod Universal Dock

  1. Make sure other products that are compatible with the remote are powered off.
  2. Connect the dock to your computer or to an electrical outlet.
  3. Put an iPod in the dock and turn the iPod on.
  4. Point the remote at the front of the dock.

  5. Press and hold the Menu and Next/Fast-Forward buttons together for about six seconds. There is no visible feedback to indicate the pairing is complete.

The dock now works only with that remote.

To reset the dock to work with all remotes

  1. Make sure other products that are compatible with the remote are powered off.

  3. Put an iPod in the dock and turn the iPod on.
  4. Point the remote at the front of the dock.
  5. Press and hold the Menu and Previous/Rewind buttons together for about six seconds.
