Zune Home A/V Pack
Amazon.com Product Description
The connector port is a handy option for people who want to sync or charge their Zune without fumbling under the desk for the sync cable, as the cable instead plugs right into the dock. The A/V port, meanwhile, lets you connect the dock to a stereo system or TV for full-featured playback. In both cases, all you have to do is drop your Zune into the dock and it will charge, sync, or play back via the connected devices--no extra connections required. Plus, the dock includes an integrated IR receiver for use with the included wireless remote. The IR receiver and remote give you quick access to your current playlist, as well as full control over menu navigation and volume. The dock even includes a small built-in slot that holds the remote--a convenient and stylish way to store the remote when not in use. A Zune sync cable is also included--a necessary accessory to connect your Zune to the included AC adapter. The AC adapter is a great way to charge a Zune without the need for a nearby computer; simply plug the AC adapter into an adjacent outlet. With the AC adapter, your Zune will be 90-percent charged after only two hours, and fully charged in about three hours.

1. Only the Zune 8GB and Zune 80 GB are 2nd Generations models. The 4GB and 30GB models are 1st generation, but still quite good. All models support the audio features of the Home A/V Pack.
2. The Zune Home A/V Pack is an outstanding accessory that makes your Zune more useful - especially with the remote control. It's essentially a powered dock that charges your Zune and provides audio and video output cables to your TV and/or stereo system. The cables are standard composite a.k.a. "RCA jacks", the same red/white/yellow kind that come from a traditional VCR or video game. If you connect the Home A/V Pack to your sound system, you'll probably have to plug into the "VCR In" jacks to get the video feature. All the "CD In" connections I've seen on receivers don't include a jack for video because CD players are typically audio only.
3. When using the Home A/V dock, only the large capacity Zune models (30GB and 80GB) support the video output feature letting you view your Zune screen on your TV. Therefore, only the 80GB model has both the video output feature and the 2nd generation technology. Compared to the 30GB model, the 80GB Zune has significantly increased resolution which helps considerably when viewing digital pictures or videos.
All things considered, I recommend the 80GB Zune over the 8GB model. With 10 times the capacity plus the video output feature, it's well worth the price jump from $150 to $250. It really is cool to browse through hundreds of CDs with your remote and then play songs (or playlists) with the album art displayed on a big-screen TV with surround sound.
P.S. The only complaint I have with using the Zune Home A/V Pack is minor. Every time you place the Zune in the dock, you have to navigate the Zune's small screen for a while to reach the menu option switching it to video output ("TV output: On"). You can do this with the remote control if you can still read the small screen from that distance. The Zune can synch wirelessly to pull from your PC any new songs you have ripped from CD or downloaded from the Internet. Therefore, you don't need to remove and re-dock the Zune much if you just use it as a large CD jukebox. If you take it with you as a portable device, docking again is more of a nuisance if you want to see the video output on your TV.
I paid $30 and got free shipping. Buying these items separate would cost over a $100. I needed a charger because my comp is downstairs.
I came across this, not only does it have the charger but it also has a cradle that is compatible with the computer and a spare USB cable, a A/V cable which plugs directly into the cradle and a remote to control it all.
I was amazed at the cheap price.
I got a zune 30GB it works great on it. Videos are not bad at all, very watchable. The radio for some reason only works on one station...
When viewing pictures, they are crystal clear.
The remote works great and is basically the zune controls in your hand. Everything on the zune comes up on screen.
Again this is a must have for any zune owner.
And for people complaining about not working with 80GB, it obvious you did not read the directions because it says right the slot on top can be removed for next gen zunes but they obviously didnt read them and then complain that this thing stinks.
I just wanted to say this does work with 30GB and 80GB.
There are web reviews that even show it. Dont listen to people that say it doesnt.
It is a solid dock and doesn't feel cheap. Everything that comes with it seems to be of superior quality when compared to cheaper no name zune accessories. I thought about just getting the dock but when you add in the price of a good AC adapter (the cheap one i bought broke in two days), an extra sync cable, a good set of A/V cables, and the remote - it just makes more sense to buy the kit.
The main reason i wanted this was to be able to control the zune from the couch with a logitech harmony remote I also bought from Amazon. If you don't own a harmony i suggest you get one NOW. The remote that comes with the home kit is great but it is rather small and using separate remotes for every device in your media center is a crap substitute for having something like a Harmony.
Overall i am very happy with the home kit. It lets me listen to music over my home stereo while the zune display is on my TV and control it all from the comfort of the couch.
