    i read that you could use a regular av cable and connect your ipod touch, and i have tried that, but it has not worked.

    then i read that the composite cable from apple itself does not work well. i wonder if this means that the only cable that does work is the component. what is going on? why do i have to spend $50 on a cable? why dont these other cables work? grr!

Hi there,

I use both the composite and component cables from Apple with no problems. Go to the ipod settings, under video then tvout. Make sure it is set to your tv standard (NTSC or PAL) and the format (Widescreen or standard).

Also, make sure you are putting the video cable into the correct socket for it on your tv, either composite or component.

All the best
Sean

Hello there.
I presume you are using the correct adapter.....

The Apple Digital AV Adapter is compatible with the fourth generation iPod Touch

For Fifth generation ipod you need this

Follow these steps carefully, it should work

The flashing red ??? You ARE connecting the iPod to some form of power aren't you ?
The steps in the above tell you to use a usb cable at the same time.

How To Connect Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod To The TV


The following devices have support for TV out:
  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • iPod touch
  • iPod nano (3rd generation and later)
  • iPod classic, iPod (5th generation), and iPod photo
Note: Other iPod models may support viewing of photos or slideshows on the iPod display but do not support TV out.
The following docks support TV out when used with an iPod model or iPhone that supports TV out:
  • Apple Universal Dock (requires either the Apple Composite AV Cable or the Apple Component AV Cable-will not work with the iPod AV Cable). Search the store for part number MB125G.
  • iPod Universal Dock or iPod with color display dock (iPod photo dock)
Important: The iPhone dock does not support TV out.
iPod models that support TV out can support viewing on a television in several ways. Use the tables below to see which cables and docks can be used with each iPod model. Check the documentation that came with the cable or iPod for information on how to connect and enable TV out.
Note: If you choose to use a third-party cable, make sure it has the "Works with iPhone" or "Made for iPod" label. Learn more about iPod and iPhone accessories.

All you need to get TV out is a compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod and the correct cable. If your device works with the component and composite cables, then the choice depends on the TV(s) you will be connecting to.

  • Apple Composite AV Cable (part number MB129LL) will connect any iPhone, iPad, or iPod to your TV using RCA Cables.
  • Apple Component AV Cable (part number MB128LL) will connect any iPhone, iPad, or iPod (except iPod with color display (iPod photo), and iPod (5th generation)) to your TV using Component Cables.

A dock can be a welcome addition if you're going to keep your cables connected to the TV. The Apple Universal Dock includes an Apple Remote so you can pause and adjust the volume from a distance. The docks and cables are sold separately.

Unable to connect ipad to tv with digital av adapter


The av adapter and the HDMI adapter can be used with iPad 2 and up. Most of the accessories only can be used with the iPad 2 and up. From the iPad 4 you only can use the lightening accessories.
Don't try other brands, because they never guaranty compatibility. I used my HDMI connector with my iPad 2 and works great. Since I do have Apple TV and a time machine I don't need any cable to view video on my tv.

I can Heare music but i cant see video. i got the ipod touch 3.12 update. so what is my problem


hi there, make sure that TV out is enabled on the iPod touch. If it is, then your AV cable may not be compatible with your iPod touch. If so, try getting a new AV cable and see what happens.

Ipod vido out


Using the iPod AV Cable
Step 11Use the Apple iPod AV cable. This plugs into the RCA ports on your TV or VCR. This is by far the easiest method. Step 22Connect the AV cable into your iPod. Plug the small end into the iPod where the earbuds would go. Step 33Connect the red RCA plug. This goes into the right audio input of the television or VCR. The colors should match. Step 44Connect the white RCA plug. This plugs into the left audio input of your TV. Connect the yellow RCA plug. This goes into the video input of your TV. Step 55Begin playing a video on the iPod.

How to use ipod to watch videos out on tv


For the ipod touch, you can't use the simple AV cable that we all enjoyed with the older models. I have the 3G Ipod Video and love the ease and simplicity of plugging it in to my ipod and watching videos on TV. I also have an Iphone, so i don't have this luxury with this device.

There is a cable you can purchase that will allow playback with the newer models of iPod. You can check it out here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/520691-REG/Apple_MB129LL_A_Composite_AV_Cable_for.html
