Default Zune HD dock help

There are so many at such different prices I don't know which is which. Can some one just tell me the cheapest one that will allow the Zune HD to connect to an HDTV at an HD resolution? Thanks

The Sync dock comes without the hdmi cable. But if you can get that for cheap, I think that's the cheapest. :-)

Yeah the sync dock is $50...so if you can pick up an hemi cable for under $40 (which you easily can) it is the cheapest one...make sure it is hemi comparable as the older docks won't allow HD resolutions

Amazon.com is currently selling it for $40 + free shipping and a HDMI cable should not cost you more than $5. just search for "Zune HD Dock"

Thanks, I saw something in the description about it but it is impossible to get a picture of the backside of any of these docks

also, are there only official docks for this kind of stuff? doesn't seem like there are any aftermarket items save the occasional speaker dock

with no remote it is not possible to navigate the menu of the HD. so you wont be able to watch videos.

as for the aux...i dont know what to tell ya. i usually have my zune volume on 15-ish and have the stereo on like 20 something....but all stereos are different. you just have to play with it. i would go max 20 on the zune volume, and just up the stereo from there until you are happy
