Question iPod Video Dock for Home Theater w/ on TV screen remote?

I'm looking into this type of device but so far the 3 I've located all seem to get bad reviews and I'm hoping to get a final decision from input from the forum.

The 3 units are:

(1) DLO HomeDock Deluxe for TV

(2) Keyspan TuneView for iPod but this does not have on TV programming - its in the remote.

(3) Onkyo DS-A3 and I have an Onkyo receiver but this reads like its only a text menu on the TV.

Any thoughts/input appreciated! Thanks.

I also spent a good deal of time looking for something to fit this bill. In the end, I just decided to go with a media server. For less that $200, I now have something that handles all my music, movies, videos and pictures. And, it does it in 1080p and it's totally expandable.

I'm a big fan of just using an Apple TV over my WiFi network, I have 2. It can be set up to sync content similar to an iPod or stream media over the network. Playcounts sync back and forth to iTunes on the computer to help keep track of played videos between iPods and ATVs. It makes a great way to view your photos on a large tv screen.

Since here in Canada we have limited resources for renting or viewing streaming video from the internet such as NetFlicks the ATV is a handy way to download rented movies from the iTunes Store as well.
