JVC Introduces TVs with iPod Dock at CES So, having an iPod dock built right in does everything the Apple TV does. And, yeah, you can connect your iPod directly to your TV now. The problem with that is that you have to use the iPod to control everything. The thing with this new built-in dock is that the remote has controls to operate the iPod. Yea, maybe not as simple as the Apple TV, but a cheaper solution. What Apple needs to do is license the Apple TV technology so it can be integrated right into the TV.
