Default Question about Zune HD dock

This question might be an easy one but I couldn't find a definite answer on zune.net

With the Zune HD dock station, can I use a HDMI cable for the video output and the red/white rca cable for audio output at the same time? I would like to plug the hdmi to the tv while plugging the red/white cables to my stereo.

Thanks!

I just tried it with HDMI to TV, and headphones to the 3.5mm A/V jack. Yes, audio is output at the same time on both HDMI and the A/V jack.

It is.... a lot of devices won't allow simultaneous output of digital and analogue audio streams....nice 1.

Rather than start a new thread, I'll hook onto this one:

Using the HD dock, what all works through it? I know Video will. I'm assuming Photos will. Music is a no brainer. But will any apps output their video through HDMI? I'd love to see the weather app on a big screen.

@Dave: Any potential for an App developer to create an app that outputs through the dock?

I am pretty sure apps don't work through TV out. You get music, videos, photos, radio, podcasts, and with the latest 4.5 firmware you can now access the marketplace through the TV.

what this guy said...i doubt you will see any apps be outputted to the tv....it would be pretty sweet if there was a FSP and you could somehow use the dock remote as a controller to the game on the TV... Get on that Dave i wont even ask for a cut of the profits...oh crap you dont charge for apps

Yea, I just thought about how all the apps require a touchscreen so tv out wouldn't work at all. Pulling up the Weather app over TV-out would be cool though. I really like the potential of being able to check the weather forecast on my TV some how!

It would be amazing to use apps on the screen with the remote as the controller...imagine a first person shooter or a driving game using the remote! That would be awesome!!

The remote would't work for games so well. But I could see weather and say basic other stuff working. Games wouldn't work though because you can't hold down a button to scroll so holding down a button for an in game function would also not work.
