    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

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.

How can I use my iPod to watch on TV?


<p>iPods are one of the most popular MP3 player. However, in addition to playing MP3s on your iPod, too many iPods play videos, but also on their own screen, allowing you to things like movies, music videos or cartoons to watch. Finally, an additional feature of the iPod is the ability to connect to a TV for watching videos without having to squint to see them in a tiny iPod screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the end of the 3.5 mm AV Cable for iPod Earphone iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the RCA at the other end of the ports on the back of your TV. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Touch users go to the Settings section on your iPod, and tap "Video Settings" and select "TV On". IPhone and iPod can find the video settings by clicking the Settings application on the home screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Change the channel on your TV using the extra channel or any channel for RCA TV <br />

My itouch says connect to itunes but it wont let me


You will want to reset the ipod and reconnect it to your computer. Below I have posted step by steps on three trouble shooting options. If after a reset it still will not connect to the computer, proceed to step two. Putting the iPod into recovery mode. Then if in recovery mode you can get it to connect to the computer, restore it to factory settings. Restoring it is listed as step three. I left the restore article normal in case you can get it to connect with just a simple reset.

1st reset

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

2nd RECOVERY MODE
Connect your USB cable to the computer without the iPod connected at the other end.

Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.

Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.
Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message: iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode. You must restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes.

If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPod and repeat steps 3-6.
Because you must restore the iPod touch, iTunes will not recover data from the device, but if it was previously synced on the same computer and the same user account, it should restore a backup (if available)


RESTORE Use the following steps to restore your iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you
Once the restore process has completed the iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up

If none of this works and your iPod is still under a year old I would call apple. Make sure that you inform them of the trouble shooting you have already done though. They can tend to assume people don't do trouble shooting. GOOD LUCK

Itouch charging


Hi there,

Some speaker systems which are only compatible for charging the ipod nanos and classics do not work with the iPod Touch and the iPhone, the internals are slighly different from one another which will not allow that speaker system to charge your iTouch.

To play & Charge your touch, i suggest getting a speaker system that supports the iPod touch platform.

Hope this helps ?!

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
