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 figured at least I'll have an a/v cable,a sync cable,and a dock.I just got mine today and it's great!
Everything came in a Zune case,which I wasn't even expecting.
So I hooked up the dock, plugged the a/v into my T.V.,and Bingo,T.V. sized Zune.The remote wouldn't work,and I figured the battery was probably dead.So I whip out my trusty battery tester and it turned out the battery was fine.The problem was the contacts in the remote. When you pop out the battery there are two metal contacts. With a pin,bend up the bottom contact about 1mm,and the side contact bend in about 1mm(1/16 inch),and there it is,a fully functional remote with buttons just like on your Zune.
Amazing bang for the buck and all good quality pieces.
My only complaint is that the remote doesn't seem to have the range that a typical tv remote has, and you have to point it directly at the dock from In Front of it for it to work, so that is kind of annoying at times.
Even with that considered, this is still a great product and def. worth getting, also because then you have a wall charger for your zune then! (you can plug the usb cable right into the zune from the wall adapter to charge it) You can also plug the RCA cable into the headphone jack to view on the tv with the dock, so it is like a 3 for 1 deal.
