Default Audio is "line out"

The reason you shouldn't plug headphones into the dock's 3.5mm jack is because it's supposedly a true "line out" jack, meaning line level output. That's also why the volume controls on the phone don't change the volume level. It's just like some portable CD players (old school) that had both headphone jacks (variable volume output) and line-out (line level so you could hook up to your stereo amp or PC line in card). When using line-level output you use the volume control of the device you've piped into.

I really like this dock, it looks fantastic sitting on my desk. My GNx (yakju) is still sitting at 4.0.2 so I guess I'm going to unlock the bootloader and flash the 4.0.4 image this weekend since it refuses to update OTA and the dock is really a waste without it.

I don't have any problems changing volume on my phone in dock. Not as much control as my receiver but works.

Let us know if they give you the correct dock. The picture looks correct but the stated manufacturer part number refers to the vertical HDMI dock instead (EDD-H1F2BEG).

The stated manufacturer part number (270SAEDDH1F2BEG) refers to the landscape dock, not the HDMI dock.

EDD-H1F2BEG refers to the HDMI dock.

EDD-D1F2BEG is the landscape dock.

I ordered 2 of these docks over two weeks ago from Expansys. I finally received the shipment a few days ago, only to discover that they sent me the wrong docks! Checked my order and I definitely selected the right items. They screwed up and shipped the wrong items. Now they expect me to pay $50+ to ship the items back to them, even though it was their mistake. Ridiculous customer service.

Talk to Corey. Look up the expansys thread and pm him. But he might not be active on forums since expansys and other exporters were hot hot hot when nexus was shipping. Try emailing him or asking over phone. Tell him xda sent ya.

You are right -- it is the HDMI dock.
