    I have a 2.1 steup and receiver. I plug my ipod into my 360 to play music through the speakers. I havent took the ipod from the 360 in weeks. I play music everyday, and the ipod charges every time I play music.

    So its been fully charged for months, and continues to charge every day. I recently saw someone say that doing this hurts it and I HAVE to drain the ipods battery really low once a month or something stupid like that. Does leaving my ipod on my 360 and playing music hurt it?

    You can reduce the batteries ability to hold a charge if it is plugged in all time. The battery not holding a charge isn't a problem if you have it plugged in when using it.

    So pretty much don't worry unless you use the iPod when it's not plugged in.
