iPod Classic Firmware 1.1 WARNING
Just updated my iPod classic to the 1.1 firmware, and was experiencing a lot of weird noise in my mini^3 when the power in the iPod was off. Took it down to the workbench and did some investigating.
What I found was ~.5v of DC on the line out whenever the ipod is off. This could be really bad for your headphones if you are connected through a DC coupled amplifier (like my mini^3).
I also plugged it into my scope, and verified the .5v is usually just DC, but that occasionally (maybe 10% of the time) it's got some triangular pulses on it.
I'd suggest people stay away from the 1.1 update
