iLuv i1255 DVD iPod Dock
iLuv on Tuesday began shipping its unique i1255. The device serves as a video hub with both a DVD player with 5.1-channel surround as well as an iPod dock; any compatible iPod both outputs its video to an attached TV but also receives an on-screen interface that allows users to navigate videos from the larger display. The DVD side can also support a handful of raw data CDs such as MP3 and JPEG photo discs.
The accessory maker explains that the i1255 works with the iPod touch, iPod classic, third-generation iPod nano, and fifth-generation iPod with video. The set-top box is shipping for $150.
