iPod + iTunes + AppleTV

I really want one for my ipod.
A greater range than iTunes. Heck yeah. I'm hoping that at parties at my home that I could just set the stereo as needed and just wander around with the ipod on my belt.

I take it you mean better range than iTrip.
Having read the article, which was a strange mixture of enthusiasm and confusion, it seems the iTrip loses on only two counts.
* It is illegal in my country
* It has a smaller maximum range.
While it wins on
* Available now
* runs off iPod battery
* compatible with every radio reciever ever made
* 1/10th of the cost
As I said, the article was confusing, but is he really saying that you should take the analog out from your portable mp3 player and feed it into a battery powered add-on, re-digitize and re-compress it, before sending it across bluetooth to be decoded by a second battery powered device and then feeding it into your output devices analog in port (assuming it has one)?.
Sounds a bit much, though I like your idea of the iPod as a glorified remote control. Having used an IR remote with my Sony 400CD changer that had an LCD display I appreciate the convenience.
The difference being that the iPod interface is a thousand times better (wheel control, play by artist/genre/album, (smart) playlists) but on the other hand doesn't have a volume control (well it does, but not for the device you're actually listening on).
