iPod Dock Questions

Let me give you the scenario here. I got a wonderful Onkyo Surround setup for Christmas that included an iPod dock. I am addicted to my iPod, of course, and also recieved an iPod Touch for Christmas. The Onkyo system I got Came with an ipod Dock, but it is limited and doesn't include really any Touch support. I can dock it in and start playing something manually, and it plays, but ultimately, that's about all it does. Frankly, I could have rigged up the same thing with a splitter and a couple cables.

So what are my options if I need something that:

Has remote support that works with the touch
has the right outputs to be hooked to a surround setup (RCA should be fine for this application.)
Ideally has an OSD?
And most importantly, charges the iPod in place?

I like to listen to streaming radio through Pandora and Iheartradio through the ipod, but my dock doesn't charge up the ipod, so my time is limited by the battery life.

I'm hoping to get away with this for less than 100, but am willing to go more if need be.
