Don't expect great video on a big TV. The resolution of the iPod video is not very high -- very grainy on my 52 inch LCD (not Yamaha's fault..). My AppleTV works much much easier and has a much better picture.
The RX-V363 remote operates the Ipod (I have an 80GB classic) just fine, but it is of limited use since you have to be standing within two feet to read the Ipod display. The sound of the YDS-11 is fine. However, as the other reviewer noted, you might consider the Tekkeon Navdock instead of this unit as the Tekkeon has full video and menu capabilities. Essentially, if you have a RX-V-363, you are buying a $60 charger that allows you to hide the input in the back of your receiver and leave the video/aux input on the front of the receiver free for something else or simply to leave open without unsightly cords. Not a great use of $60 as far as I am concerned.
I get the message telling me its not made to work with my phone, but..
1) Charges fine
2) plays audio fine (played several songs)
3) plays video files fine (played back an Episode of Stargate SG1)
The video playback looks a little stretched on my 42 inch widescreen, but probably expected.
Only complaint would be the menuing options. While they all work like they are supposed to with my receiver. I am not sure why the basic video output of what you see on the Iphone is not being sent rather than a video output only when you play a video file.
OSD display works fine, but would rather the display screen of the Iphone or ipod be shown.
Remote control for my receiver is able to control the video and audio playback functions without any problems either.
Though the product misses on what would be a very useful feature, it does efficiently dock the iPod to the receiver, allows continuous music playback, allows some control over the iPod with the receiver's remote, and, with some fiddling around, will display the current song title in receiver's digital display.
I carefully researched the YDS-11SL before buying. Yamaha's product information states it is supported by the RX-V863. Some product reviews were very positive, others described the same problem I encountered. GOOD LUCK getting any help from Yamaha. They don't return my e-mails (other than to say they received it).
