Default home dock connection

I have connected my s50 to the car and it works great, however I can not seem to make it work with the home dock. I have it connected with rca jacks to an am/fm stero and when I tune it to 88.1 the only out put I get is white noise. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The S50 Home Dock does not have a FM Modulator. You can only directly hook it up to a audio IN AUX port of a receiver.

Or you can hook it up to a pair of powered speakers like computer speakers. You don't need a FM radio for the home dock.

If you are using RCA jacks, you don't need the FM, select the LINE IN or AUX mode on the stereo it is connected to.

Ditto that....you are trying to use the am/bm tuner mode when in reality you should push the button or flick the switch that changes it over to the line-in or aux mode of the radio. The home dock does not broadcast over the fm signal it is made to be hardwired to a line in jack or aux jack of a reciever.
