I just received the Samsung Universal Multimedia Desktop dock for my Galaxy Nexus. While it does charge the phone, and the phone knows its been put into a dock, it refuses to switch the audio output though the dock connected speakers.
Ive even tryed downloading a program to automatically switch it, but it doesn't work either.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to get the dock audio output to work?
 Also, when i goto the sound settings, the Audio under Dock remainds disabled, even when docked, but the insert sound option works.
Digging into it, i found another poster with the same issue on the google. His discription is more detailed than mine, and has the same problem. Reading though his, it seems to be an issue with the phone or OS and not the dock.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Verizon, i515) running stock 4.2.2. I also have a Samsung Galaxy Multimedia Dock (http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cel...EDD-D200BEGSTA)
When I insert the Nexus into the dock, I want to use the Audio line out to run an external speaker. But that option doesn't seem to exist on the phone OS.
In earlier versions of Android (2.3 for instance), the documentation says when you insert the device into a dock, you have the option of enabling the audio on the line out port. (http://support.google.com/android/bi...&answer=168598)
I have daydream enabled and daydream starts, so the device is aware it is docked. While docked, I go to settings - sound and look at the Dock settings (there are only two). Audio (grayed out) and Dock Insert Sound.
When I start some music, the sound plays from the Nexus internal speakers.
Is there a way to enable the audio to play out the line out port of this dock? The audio must be redirected to the audio line out through the Nexus USB charging connector.
