When I bought my 3rd generation iPod with a dock one of the nicest things about the dock is that when you plug a mini-cable into the back of it (the other side into your home stereo) it acts as an amplifier. That is, adjusting the volume on the iPod wasn't necessary and it didn't affect the volume coming out of the speakers anyway.<br><br>Now I have a 5G video iPod with one of those "universal" docks that comes with an adapter to fit each of the new models. Now when I plug into the minijack of that dock it doesn't act as an amplifier? I have to turn the volume way up on the iPod and then turn it up on the stereo tuner as well to get the volume I want.<br><br>Is this dock defective, or did the docks lose that function when they went universal?<br><br>
