There are plenty of ways to get your favorite TV shows onto your iPod, but if for some reason you don't want to frequent the iTunes store or have to endure tedious conversion processes, iLuv has a new dock that takes your computer out of the equation altogether and records directly from almost any video source. Before you get too excited, though, you should know that iLuv's got no love for electronic program guides, so you actually have to be sitting by your TV to manually trigger each recording -- which severely limits this device's utility as a DVR. Obviously, then, the main selling point of the so-called i180 is the ability to transfer footage from your camcorder, and adjustable quality settings up to 1.5Mbps probably ensure that it performs this function pretty well. Still, we doubt most people would be willing to pay $200 to save a few minutes here and there transferring the occasional home movie, so it sounds like you should really hold on to that PC after all.
