·Can I make a home docking station for my player? (Entry last updated on June 8th, 2003)
Yes, examples of home docking station projects can be found in the photo gallery here. Most of these required an extra sled and/or docking connector, which might be hard to come by if you didn't purchase an extra one with your player. If you want to purchase a pre-made home docking station, Mark Lord sells them here.
Remember that the player behaves differently between home mode and car mode. It uses a switch on the AC adapter jack to tell whether it's in the car or at home. If you're making your own docking station and you want it to behave like it's on AC power, you need to fake out the AC adapter jack somehow, or else you'll have this problem. Note that Mark Lord's docks use a different work-around for the same problem.
