As for the video resolution...   it looks worse on a larger TV than it does on a smaller one.  While it seemed quite fine no a 27" old TV I connected it to, when I hooked it up to a 48" hdtv (dlp) it somehow looked grainier...

but it looked the same on that to me if I routed the videos through a 360 or via the cable.    I already can feed the videos through my 360 directly from my computer at higher resolution than this anyway, so I doubt I'm going to use this part of it much. 

Basically if you have a 360, you can already control everything from a 360 remote, can play everything from the zune on your tv...

For me it ends up being a rather pricey charger and stand, which I could have achieved for less $$.    I guess there is some value in being able to take the cable with me to hook up to someone else's TV if I'm somewhere else...   but I don't think I could consider this a must-have accessory for anyone who has a 360.

Your review makes me want to go out and get a Zune A/V pack!  I can see a lot of advantages to having one.  It really would be a great way to show family pictures.  Do you think Zunerama will be having this as a giveaway! Wink

You know, of all the accessory giveaways we've had (over sixty items given away), none of those have been from Microsoft. You are making me feel like I need to lobby Microsoft to send a few A/V packs our way so we can give them away to our loyal members. I am NOT too proud to beg for these! I'll get to work on it.

good luck! if anything, the a/v cable or wall adapter is a must! actually, i just use a regular old a/v cable but i have to switch the colors around. you have to plug the red into the video, the yellow into white, and the white into red. once you get it sorted it works like a charm.

I bought the Home A/V {Ack and for the most part like it.  I am having a problem with the zune sitting in the dock.  It connects and charges , but has issues with staying connected to PC, it wants to fall backwards.  The zune seems to top heavy in combination with the dock not being deep enough.   anyone having this issue??

You have the same Panasonic DVD/Home theather system as me, in the last pic of the Zune in the dock next to the Panny unit there.   Shocked

I bought that about 4 years ago, and have really liked it! It has the 5-CD (or DVD) carousel which was great... back when I used CDs.  Smiley

I have the same one, mines a HT-95, not sure if yours is the HT75 or HT95 but they are basically the same I think.  I got mine for free from my friend who didn't want it anymore because the DVD part of it stopped working.  I messed around with it for many hours and got it to work.  A little push of the DVD with the top open and the DVD  spun right up.  Working good ever since.  I'm actually using mine with Yamaha 5.1 speakers and sub not the Pannys that came with it.  Got my Xbox 360, TV, PC, and everything running through it.  Maybe a Zune one day too  Smiley

Oh man, with your setup you *definitely* need to add a Zune to that. Especially with the Xbox 360..!!
