Motorola Webtop Docks :: Digital Audio Output On HD Dock
Aug 4, 2011
Wondering if there is a way to get digital audio output through the USB ports for use with an external DAC. I'm wanting to use the Atrix via HD Dock as a good source component for my home stereo. If anyone has set something up along those lines, or using another solution, i'd like to hear about it.
I just got my laptop dock and love it. I was reading the online guideand saw the about adding web apps to the dock compared to adding a bookmark to the dock from this page: http://www.motorola.com/hc/5871/global/wt/en-us/help.aspx?id=d1e89 in the Using Web Apps sectionI don't know if it has changed since Gingerbread came out but when I try to add an app/bookmark to the dock there is no option to set it as a web app or bookmark seems they all get added as bookmarks.
I bought the Atrix just for the docks (I have the car and lapdock) and after spending that much money I expect better from Motorola. I've updated to gingerbread if that help. The car dock hasn't rebooted the phone as much as the lapdock does but my lapdock is now useless.
Recently purchased a car dock for my atrix and it was working fine till yesterday. Now when the phone is connected the car dock app doesn't fully launch. It flashes and almost tries to launch and then goes back to the home screen. I have tried rebooting, pulling the battery,etc.
Have a new lapdock and my phone is not seeing the lapdock while 2 other phones work fine. The lapdock is fully charged and plugged in. My phone does not show the menu when docked or any indication of charging. It seem oblivious to the lapdock. The Atrix does, however, work with a multimedia dock with keyboard and mouse.The Atrix was one of the pre-release batch and is current on AT&T software. I did delete some bloatware, mostly games, some time back.
When I dock my Atrix 4G (stock with 2.3.4 OTA update) with my new lapdock, I get the bouncing red logo on the lapdock and only two choices on the phone...Entertainment center and dismiss. I am able to play music, view pictures, etc on the lapdock screen if I select the Entertainment center option, but the keyboard on the lapdock does nothing. I have to use the controls on the phone to control it. And it appears that I can enable/disable the touchpad by double tapping the upper left corner.
I just ordered the Atrix car dock. I know you can either install it off your windshield using the suction cup or placing it on your dashboard using the sticky tape. Based on the dimensions of my 2010 Civic's sloping windshield, I'm afraid it might be too far away for me to safely use while driving. I was thinking maybe I should mount it directly under the rear-view mirror. I was considering placing it in the storage bin just below the radio/AC controls and behind the shifter (using the sticky tape) or placing it to my left on the windshield. Of course, placing it to my left would mean that cables will be running under the steering wheel.
My company is planning on purchasing a few of the lapdocks... IF we can find a good Office document editor. No, Google Docs wont work as we do not allow cloud support.We've tried Citrix apps (by linking them to office) but its not practical for a quick edit.
My problem is I cannot use any keyboard in Webtop mode.I have an MB855 Photon 4G with the HD Dock and a Motorola keyboard w/trackpad.I can connect to the dock fine and open the Webtop application, shows up on my TV and looks dandy. Then I turn on Bluetooth and pair the keyboard (Motorola 89507 wireless keyboard with trackpad) with the phone. It requests a numeric code which I enter on the keyboard and hit enter- presto.Now the screen on the phone changes to a clock and I can control the cursor through the trackpad on the keyboard. BUT no matter what I do the keyboard will not type letters. No keys on the keyboard appear to have any functionality.At this point I undocked the phone, then the keyboard works fine!Plug it back into the dock and -whoop- right back to no keyboard.At this point I decided to try my Logitech mouse & keyboard. I plugged in a Logitech unifying receiver into the back of the HD Dock and the screen flashed- but nothing else.
I tried to use my car dock for the first time today with my Atrix and I found that I was unable to add additional apps to the free buttons.
When I long pressed a button, nothing would happen and it would be followed shortly after by a force close dialog for Settings. why I would be unable to an app and why the car dock app would be causing a force close in Settings?
I noticed that when I use the dock and have the headset plugged into the doc, the volume is low. If I leave the Atrix in the doc and plug the headset into the phone directly, the sound is much fuller and louder. Any clues on how to raise the volume on the dock, non-HD?
I don't remember having an issue before the Gingerbread update but I can't get USB flash drives to work on the laptop dock. It will recognize when they are plugged in but they won't show up in File Manager.
I just upgraded my phone to gingerbread and noticed that the way contacts are handled under calling in the car dock has changed. Previouly when tapping on a contact, I would be able to choose which number to dial. Now, it seems I need to assign a contact button for each number. e.g. one button for "Bob Home" and one for "Bob Cell". Seems to be a step backwards. Is there anyway to return the contact behavior back to the way it was?
Is it possible to do HDMI mirroring to the Laptop dock? I'm guessing you'd need a mini HDMI to mini HDMI (male to male) cable and a mini HDMI female to female adapter to be able to plug into just the HDMI port on the Laptop dock.
Gaming full screen via Webtop is just too laggy. At least it is on my Atrix.
When I dock my Atrix in my Laptop Dock it recognizes the Atrix but I'm unable to make or receive phone calls. I tried docking my Atrix during an active call and it continued to stay active but after disconnecting I could not make another call while docked. I use Voice to make and receive calls and even disabled this to see if that was the problem. Is this a setting issue or a bug?
I want to use my LapDock for previewing of photos in the field. I can plug my card reader into the lapdock and see all the files, but have found no way to to advance through pictures in full screen, nor a way to rotate vertical shots. I have to open each picture file separately, view it, close the window, then open the next one.
I noticed today that while my Atrix's is docked in the car dock, it will not display the current speed. But if I go into setting and select display compass heading (or something like that), it will display the compass heading in the location icon. Is there anyway to get the current speed to display in the icon instead?
When your typing on the laptop dock 100 using the Photon it often reverts back to other parts of your sentence. Which my cause you to start typing anywhere in sentense. For instance if your typing the the Sentence ( I really like my laptop dock but) while your about to type a word after your last in may revert back to maybe like and continue your typing. Which messes up everything. It does it often. I returned one laptop dock and received another one but it still doing the same think. There doesn't seem to be nothing in setting on phone or dock that I see could help with this.
I've noticed that the volume does not change at all when output is the car dock. E.g. lowering the volume does not actually decrease the volume until you get down to muting the device (which does still work). There are no problems when listening through the headphone out, but I don't wish to negate the functionality of the rather expensive Motorola Cardock.This is a major inconvenience as it generally causes an ugly distortion and could damage my car speakers.
Will the Lapdock (and other accessories for that matter) work for the new Atrix 2 coming? I've only used the Lapdock lightly and it will be a real shame if it and the other accessories I've purchased over the past year won't work with the 2nd gen Atrix.
I recently bought the Webtop travel adapter for use with my VZW Droid RAZR and 1080p TV. I have a probelm with the Status Bar atop the display. About once per second it will disappear and then a second later reappear. If a window is maximized, it will be resized back/forth. It is truly annoying. It is happening with multiple TV's so it's not an HDMI issue. During the time the Status Bar is visible, nothing within it is clickable. I am speculating that it is loading then crashing then loading again but never fully initalizes to where anything is clickable and the service is caught in a restart loop.
Fireforx and the mobile view both work just fine on their own so long as they don't cross into the status bar area and their windows will get bumped up/down as it appears/disappears. I had considered a lapdock but can't justify the money, especially if it doesn't work properly. I'll try using aLogcat to see if I can glean anything form it and ship some logs off to Moto support.
How do I get the latest Citrix Receiver installed on my webtop? I have updated the citrix receiver on the phone via the market and it works fine with our corporate Citrix server. But the webtop appears to be a different install of the receiver and it does not work with our Citrix servers. When starting the application the receiver modal appears the windows start song plays then it just goes away.
Using the Netflix app, going full screen makes movies very laggy. I also notice going full screen causing game emulator apps to lag real bad as well. Is there any way to stop the full screen lag without watching everything in a tiny window?
I searched for an answer but couldn't find one. I prefer docs to go over quickoffice but firefox in webtop mode never asks but open docs in quickoffice in phone window.Is there a way to default to docs to go in webtop mode? BTW, is there a way to open docs to go in webtop mode
I wanted to verify this was another part of the disabled functionality of Webtop 3.0 vs. 2.0. In 2.0 there was a Settings button for the lapdock that allowed the touchpad's sensitivity to be adjusted. In Webtop 3.0 the only settings adjustment I can find takes me to the phone's Settings which has no category allowing for touchpad sensitivity adjustment. A quick chat with a Motorola "support" person online here suggested there was no longer such an adjustment available, and that they didn't work for Motorola, but would "pass my comment along" to them.
