So obviously I bought a Zune HD a short time ago, and like you I heard that you could attached the Zune HD to a HD TV and watch 720p output from the Zune HD to the HDTV. I will state up front that I was not only skeptical, I flat out expected this not to be able to keep up without skipping. I am happy to report that this whole system actually works and works perfectly.

Couple things threw me.

This needs a power source. You either power it from the USB power of a PC, or you use the USB to AC adapter which is included. You can't just throw the Zune HD in the doc with nothing for a power source.

If you use it with your PC's USB port for power, it duos as a sync dock. That means, Marketplace will auto start and want to sync with your Zune. And it's up to you to quit that software so that the Zune HD will display it's menu on your LCD or Plasma TV. It help s to read the manual, but who's kidding who here. Manuals? I thought those were just extra box padding, right?

I actually believe it's best to place this right next to your TV and use AC power. Leave the remote right next to the dock by your TV. Then all you ever have to do is place it in the dock when you want to use it with your TV. I'd rather keep using the sync cable that came with the Zune HD as the sync method, and leave this exclusively for the TV.

So enough of that hardware and on to the good stuff.

You won't get all of the menu items on your Zune HD on your LCD TV with this. I was actually hoping you would. I was hoping you'd get to browse the internet on it or something. Wouldn't that be cool. Here is what you do get:

- Music
- Videos
- Pictures
- Radio
- Podcasts

I truly wanted this to watch video podcasts and movies on my 32" LCD TV.

I have been using the Zune A/V dock with my Zune HD at least 3 times a week since I got it a month or two ago. Due to the fact that we have a TVs in both the bedroom and the living room, the simplicity of moving the dock between the two rooms has been much appreciated. Its takes all of about 2 minutes to switch TVs, and that includes the time walking from room to room. Up until now I had simply been connecting my laptop to the TV with an S-video and audio output cables, rendering my not quite new laptop useless for the duration of the viewing. Now I have my laptop back and a remote that allows me to start the next episode from the comfort of my sofa. Navigating with the remote is easy and the interface is almost exactly like on the Zune itself. Picture quality is just fine for our liking, but I am no expert in that respect. Also, it works with both standard def. and HD TVs, as long as the SD TV has a RCA inputs. HD uses an HDMI cable of course.

Now for the gripes:

For some reason, you have to completely power off the Zune before you place it in the dock. I realize this is an issue with the Zune, not the dock, but it still seems relevant. I had a couple days of frustration before I found the solution in some Zune forum. I would imagine this will be eventually be fixed in a software update at some point. It is not really a big deal, but it is kind of annoying.

The other issue is the price. It just seems a little high. Don't get me wrong, the dock does what it is supposed to and does it well for the most part. It just seems a bit high to me.

Overall, I am very happy with it and can't honestly say I wouldn't buy it all over again knowing what I know now. In fact, the A/V output capability of the Zune HD has resulted in it being used almost exclusively in the house, as opposed to the car for which it was originally purchased.

Having owned both the 1st and 2nd gen Zune docks prior to purchasing the HD dock, I have to say that this is a major step backwards. With each passing generation, the remote control gets flimsier and flimsier and the weight of the dock itself gets lighter and lighter.

But build-quality is not the deal-breaking issue. Functionality and inconsistency is.

When the HD is in the dock and video-out is "off" (meaning that the device's screen displays the UI), you cannot navigate through the UI with the remote control. The only buttons that work are play/pause, track next/prev, vol up/down, and home buttons. Inserting a previous generation Zune device, like a Zune 80, shows that full navigation is still available to the device. (my conclusion is that it is the HD's firmware that is the culprit not any particular limitation of the dock)

When the HD is in the dock and video-out is "on" (meaning that the attached TV displays the UI), only Music, Video, Pictures, Radio, and Podcasts options are displayed. Internet, Apps, Marketplace, and Settings are not visible nor accessible. Remote control navigation is active however.

But... when using the remote to navigate, if you go to the Video section and browse the description of a video and press the PLAY button (instead of the center button on the upper direction rocker button) then MUSIC plays instead of the video that is currently being displayed.

The navigation rocker button and media control buttons perform separate functions... unlike previous generations where the buttons did double-duty.

Using the HDMI output presents a surprisingly good image on an HDTV. Even .mp4 videos that were originally encoded 320 pixels wide and 700Kbps bitrates look near-DVD quality on a 42" LCD tv.
