    Thanks for posting it. It's an interesting concept but seems of somewhat limited utility to me given that the video resolution on the iPod/iPhone is so poor in comparison to a 46" HDTV... Looks like they did a reasonably nice job with the menus, though. :)

    I agree that iPod videos on a 46" TV might not look all that great ... but it could be OK for some.

    I've been looking for a smaller TV (26") to replace the one we have in the kitchen. Panasonic makes a 720p 26" TV with an iPod dock. It's called the L26X1 and has a separate iPod dock. You can access the iPod via on screen menus.

    My TV is mounted up high having a source for videos would free up the big TV when my daughters want to watch Dora and other cartoons. I would just load up an iPod (probably a Classic) and plug it in. Maybe even frame out a niche in the wall for a more polished look.
