Currently Being ModeratedFeb 13, 2008 9:39 AM (in response to themauirob)I have not had any success with the built in alarm clock. It does not matter if I choose the "beep" tone or a playlist, no sound plays when the alarm goes off. I have hooked the ipod to a set of external powered speakers for maximum wake-up-nitude, but no avail.Powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 13, 2008 2:58 PM (in response to Steppanwolf)I have the same issue. Alarm doesn't go off whether its on beep or playlist.
thats another issue to add to my existing one, which is the search feature not functioning properly at all. apparently 1.1.1 introduced major bugs than fixing existing ones.Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 14, 2008 5:16 AM (in response to zabalawi)u know what, 2 of my issues were resolved including the alarm function, when I restored the iPod using iTunes. I guess the update 1.1.1 needs one iPod to be restored before it functions properly.
thankfully, my iTunes library is a modest 10 Gig, so it wasn't a hassle to restore and sync all the music back again!Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2008 1:17 PM (in response to themauirob)iPod Classic alarm has never worker reliably!
"Geniuses" & phone support are clueless and disempowered to do anything about it. Apple doesn't seem to read these posts.
You must restore your iPod to version 1.1.1 then reset your iPod and leave it alone for the alarm to go off. Problem is, resetting will loose any changes you recently made to the alarm. Seems alarm will not play a song if you are on pause. Alarm is not triggering a high level interrupt and playing no matter what is going on. Maybe apple programmer think this is a "feature" that alarm won't play a song if another song is cued.
Please post feedback and tell programmers that alarm still doesn't work in v1.1.1 and we want it to fire off the player list no matter what is going on.
