Looking for an easy way to integrate your iPod into your home entertainment system? Check out the DLO HomeDock Deluxe, which lets you play your stored movies through a big-screen TV, listen to your favorite songs through a nearby stereo, and control them all via a full-featured remote control. The bundle comes with everything you need to get started, including a compact docking station that charges and powers your iPod 4G, iPod photo, iPod video, iPod mini, and iPod nano, along with S-video and RCA connection cords. Once setup is complete, you can perform a host of unique iPod functions from the comfort of your living room sofa. Navigation is a breeze thanks to a handy user interface that lets you browse, select, skip, and play songs and movies through the TV screen.

Another fun feature is My Jukebox, which lets you create a new party playlist on the fly. Use the remote to browse your tunes and select the perfect mix for the evening, perhaps starting with some Sinatra and finishing up with a smooth Getz/Gilberto. You can also review and edit your song list at any point, so if your original selections aren't fitting the mood, you can easily switch them up. And during the party, guests can see what songs are playing by glancing at the screen savers, which can be customized to display the song info and color art.

Other details include a Turbo Scroll function for quickly navigating through thousands of selections; an intelligent status light on the dock that provides remote feedback; an auxiliary input for connecting MP3 players and other audio sources; an extra-wide menu to accommodate longer song titles; and a sleek silver and black finish.

A nice improvement over the previous model - MAKE SURE YOU BUY THIS ONE AND NOT THE OLDER MODEL--same name, no on-screen video navigation. The only thing this is really missing is on-screen PHOTO navigation. Otherwise, it's a great substitute for the Apple TV, if you already have a video iPod (since Apple TV is really just a glorified iPod without the screen). The remote is a little annoying at times, not responding right away when skipping tracks, but works well for the most part. I did notice an occasional lag in displaying album art, but wasn't sure if was just my music that was the problem. Not all of my music has 'embedded' album art--since iTunes only write it to a database and not the actual MP3 file (unless you do it manually). I also emailed DLO to see if this unit would be capable of receiving firmware updates (for possible future photo integration), but haven't heard back yet. That would be much better than having to buy yet another 'expaned' version of this unit. Overall, the interface is pleasing to the eye, the sound is just fine and the video quality looked perfect to me (using S-Video). It makes watching and listening to content on your iPod a much more pleasurable experience while in the comfort of your home.

I got this as an upgrade to the previous version of the Homedock Deluxe for its added feature of displaying video titles onscreen. But it doesn't work. The list of TV shows is completely out of whack - episode titles appear randomly under different series folders. And long titles don't scroll so you can read them, like the ipod does.

Tried the web based software update which did not work. DLO responded quickly to my question about it saying they had "no further information."

I tried this new dock with an ipod video 5.5. I hear the video listing does not work at all with the latest ipods.

So I'm going to return this and go back to using my old version of the unit - which has always worked well - except that the remote does break. I've gone thru 3. Don't replace the battery, just order a new remote direct from dlo.

An added note though - some people have complained about distorted sound - I found that it was just a matter of turning down the volume of the homedock using the remote control - an feature I'm sure some people don't even know exists! This feature allows the homedock to make its audio signal quite hot - which is good for some videos that have very low audio levels (itunes tv shows for example) - but bad for most music mp3s which have a much hotter output.

I was really disappointed that product does not work with the latest version of iPod firmware, I'm using iPod version 1.2.3, it will still play sound and video through your TV, but the OSD says "No iPod Connected" so you cannot use the OSD menu features to browse your iPod on the TV which was this products biggest selling point. I even upgraded to the latest HomeDock firmware version from DLO's site but that still did not fix the problem.

You can still use the iPods regular menu to select songs and videos directly on your iPod though, but that is definitely not worth the money.

So if you have an older version of the iPod software, version 1.2.1 or older, and don't plan on upgrading your iPod ever. Then this is the product might be worth it. Otherwise, wait until they come out with a version that is compatible with the latest iPod versions.

The HomeDock Deluxe plays the music from my Ipod through my TV fine. However, the Album Artwork feature that I was looking forward to did not appear. The people at DLO informed me that the software in the new Classic 160 Ipod does not allow the Artwork to appear on the TV screen.
I have not yet mastered the remote control.

OK, so the product is easy to hook up and does function well with music. My purpose for purchasing the system was to watch TV shows and movies that are loaded on my ipod on my LCD TV. The problem (as others have complained about) is that the on screen navigation does not work for the TV shows and movies. My different categories do show up on the on-screen navigation, but only a couple of the TV shows (the same shows) show up under each of the categories. I sent DLO a detailed description of what was happening and there reply was, "Unfortunately, this concern is currently being addressed with our product development team and not further information is available at this time.
Please look to the support website periodically for further information as it is ascertained."

In other words, they are aware that the product does not function as advertised and maybe someday they will actually be able to make it work (or maybe not!).

I am dissappointed in the product and very dissappointed in the customer service. I would not recommend this product for the price.

This dock is full of inconsistencies. Please note, I've experienced all the setbacks previous posters describe, so I will not reiterate those points here. From the moment I integrated it into my system, I haven't been able to tap into its potential, given I have a defective unit. At least that is the comment from their customer service department.

I always read reviews before making any purchase, regardless of price. The reviews for this product were average, but I decided to take a risk. Sometimes I am able to avoid problems with products despite other reviewer's problems. Unfortunately, the Home Deluxe isn't a circumstance with which I've had a success story.

The major problem I had with the Home Deluxe was connectivity/interface. After plugging the dock into my Mac via USB, nothing occurred. iTunes failed to launch. The iPod didn't mount. Being a preferred Mac user, I began to assume that it was that ubiquitous issue (Compatibility).

I wasn't able to receive a video signal through the S-Cable. The composite cable produced a picture, but given I have an LCD, the picture was horrible. With regards to the slide show, I wasn't able to view any photos. When I placed a call to the customer service department, I was lucky enough to troubleshoot with a woman, who all but blamed me for the failure of the unit to work as advertised. I had the TV-Out feature turned on for both the video and the slideshow. She told me to turn off the TV-Out on the photo setting, and leave it on in the video, implying it wouldn't work with both on. She failed to listen to my situation. Had she listened, she would have immediately realized I had video through the composite connections.
