Hi all,

I'm looking to get a wired remote for my 5.5G iPod (much like my 3G used to have). Looking at the 3rd party people on eBay, some (http://cgi.ebay.com/Y030-Wired-Remote-Control-f-Ipod-Video-Photo-Nano-Mini_W0QQitemZ300269812252QQcmdZViewItemQQptZOther_MP3_Player_Accessories?hash=item300269812252&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318) models just have a dock connector, whereas others (http://cgi.ebay.com/MINI-WIRED-REMOTE-CONTROL-FOR-APPLE-iPOD-NANO-VIDEO_W0QQitemZ310097917527QQcmdZViewItemQQptZOther_MP3_Player_Accessories?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116) have a dock connector and a separate audio plug. Can anyone who has used a 3rd party party remote tell whether a separate audio connection is needed or not?
