I have a third party dock with audio/video outputs. The product is a dynex dock, and cables to connect to the television. Maybe this HTML: <a href="http://www.dynexproducts.com/p-430-dynex-docking-station-with-remote-for-apple-ipod.aspx">link</a> could explain what it is that I am talking about. Either way the remote has limited access, the volume doesn't work. It sucks, I think apple screws access for third party stuff in order to pay for their products. Is there anything I can do? Is there a link somebody can give me to get back the 2.1 firmware - because most of the stuff I do with this, is play videos.
