The HomeDock looks nice, but for $29 more I can get a refurbished Apple TV.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’m annoyed at the fact that DLO is able to affix the “HD” designation to this product. To speak in mathematical terms (a real risk since I suck at math), upconversion does not equal high-definition but it merely approximates it.

I suppose it’s just one of those quibbles that I have, but when the magical “HD” starts flying around, I think it’s more than a little misleading. If the source material doesn’t have a native resolution of 720p or 1080i, it’s not HD.
