are there any plans to incorporate a zune line-out dock cable anytime soon?
i would understand the process might be a little difficult considering there needs to be an outside power source also since it only works when the sync cable is plugged into the dock either from a computer or ac adapter.
i would appreciate it a lot and im sure anyone with a zune would rush to get one.
I have no plans to make any cable for the Zune. I did buy one and discovered that you have to have all of these items, Zune docking station, Zune Power supply, The Zune Remote control unit and the made for Zune mini to RCA cable (if you try and use a after market mini to RCA cable you will find that the socket for the mini plug is recessed on the Zune dock!). All of these items must be present and accounted for or the line out signal will not be unlocked from the device. In other words Microsoft wants the user to purchase all of these items in order for you to use the level line out signal. I cant tell you how disappointed I was when I discovered that the line out signal was some how internally locked. Bummer.
I am sure there is a work around but I have my hands full with the iPod at the moment.
