The Marantz IS201 Universal Apple iPod Dock is available now through Japanese gadget exporter Audio Cubes.

What I like about this dock, is the separation of the connectors from the iPod stand. This way you can hid the cable mess better.
The IS201 docking station includes stereo phono, S-Video, RC-5, IR-Flasher input and RS-232 connections and external power supply plug.
With the remote control you can lean back and watch videos and photos stored on your iPod on your TV. Of course it also lists your play lists on the TV.

The Marantz IS201 was announced in May in Europe. It is available from some stores in Europe, I have not seen it available in the US yet.

Audio Cubes sells the Marantz IS201 for $169.The Marantz IS201 has an IR flasher input and output meaning it can either be controlled by, or control, an AV receiver with IR flasher capabilities. It is also controllable from a PC via an RS232 connection. When implementing the IR flasher output, the IS201 can be used as an IR repeater for use either in multi-room or hidden system set-ups as the main point of control as well as being an iPod dock.

The Griffin TuneCenter provides a similar feature set.
