Control your iPod via your Onkyo Reciever

Onkyo Reciever Back

Own an Onkyo AV amp and an iPod? Prepare the two for some conjugal bliss. The Japanese company is partnering with Apple to develop a docking station and control unit that’ll allow you to control your iPod via Onkyo remote controls. One cable weds docking station to RI port, and two phono cables handle sound output to the Onkyo’s tape deck input. The bad news (isn’t there always some bad news?) is, you won’t be able to gander at the iPod’s track lists via the Onkyo amp display until they upgrade the system next year. Until then, consider this yet another creative way to convert your regular iPod into an iPod shuffle.

This is REALLY sweet if they can make it user friendly. Seeing as Apple's also I partner in this I have no doubt that it can work. Now the only thing that's missing is an Ipod car kit with docking station....

Yeah, but that treats it like a multi change cd player and you can only choose a maximum op x possible songs.

I mean something with a small LCD display so that tracks can be chosen in a user friendly way. IE: Not having to press next 1000 times to get to your song.
