The nearest Genius Bar is a 3 hour drive from my home, which isn't very feasible. I had my niece bring her ipod over tonight and it works fine on the iHome system. The only difference between the two is her hardware version is a little older than mine.
So I think it is either the last hardware update I did that somehow messed things up or it has to do with the docking pin.
With the bar being so far from home should I pay for some support from Apple? I just don't know where to begin. This has been such a nightmare for me.
