    ok. i got a program called connect360, so i could stream my itunes library to my xbox for some sweet microsoft/apple love...

    i was checking out the dashboard to do it, and i saw USB portable devices. me being the curious fellow i am, i got my ipod and usb connector, and connected it to my xbox 360's usb port. instantly it recognized Wyatt's Ipod, and whammy i'm playing music off of my ipod, on my xbox with some sweet hdtv visualizations!

    has microsoft officially announced this feature. becuase after my lasted update, my xbox outputs in 1080p as well.

    it's nice to see some xbox/ipod love going on.

    I'm sure iPod has been there a while, but it won't play protected songs (boo, my fave tracks were downloaded through iTunes).

    Yeah it was infact quoted to do that before release. I had an iPod Dock and Cable waiting for it when I came home from camping out on release night. To bad I crashed when I got there from exhaustion and damn near hypothermia. HOwever once hooked up it worked awesome. However I do say I have connect360 and that is hot to. Left the Ipod dock for visiting ipods. :D

    this feature was highly advertised when the 360 came out. The last time I tried it though you were limited to a certain number of songs.

    Yeah, it doesn't play any of the songs I have purchased from iTunes but it still rocks. On a side note I plugged my iPod to my PS3 and the PS3 copied alll the music files off my iPod, which I thought was cool too. The PS3 also does not play the protected songs.

    I just got Connect360 tonight, and have been playing with it. Definitely worth the $20! It's nice to not have to plug in my iPod to get better music when I'm playing Geometry Wars.

    Photos from my Canon 5D look so much better coming from iPhoto into the 360 than they do coming straight form the camera.

    I assume it's the component connection versus the camera's regular old RCA.
