DLO ships 'first' UI-on-a-TV iPod dock

HomeDock Deluxes out ahead of Griffin's TuneCenter?

Security for virtualized datacentres

iPod accessory specialist DLO has begun shipping what it claims is the first ever iPod dock that uses a TV screen to let you navigate through your player's music collection from a distance. In short, no more squinting at the iPod's screen.

The HomeDock Deluxe provides bays not only for the iPod but also the accessory's bundled 20-button remote. Ports round the back hook the dock up to your hi-fi's RCA jacks and to your TV's S-video or composite RCA jack.

DLO's baby works with Apple's 'universal' docking system, so you can connect any iPod with a dock connector to play music, and to show photos and videos on the TV. While it's docked, the iPod charges up, and there's a USB 2.0 connector too so you don't have to take your player elsewhere to sync it up with your computer.

DLO wants $150 for the HomeDock Deluxe. It's available now, but the company warned buyers to expect delays of up to 1-2 weeks "due to demand".

Griffin Technology also announced such a product, back in January, but its TuneCenter, which also sports an on-TV UI, has yet to ship. It's offering the $130 product for $100 if you're willing to make a pre-order. ®
