Re: cannot watch ipod video on tv even using the correct...
I solved my problem with this issue. It wasn't the radio in my case. Don't know if this will help anyone else but I had to turn "ON" the TV output on my ipod. This is done by going to Videos - Settings - TV OUT. Then click center button to turn it to "ON".

JVC KS-PD100 iPod Interface Adapter (257KSPD100, sold separately). This
optional iPod Interface Adapter supports audio playback for the following
iPod models - iPod click-wheel (3rd gen), iPod photo (4th gen), iPod mini
(1st/2nd gen), iPod nano
(1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen), iPod video (5th gen), and iPod classic
(80/120/160GB). The KS-PD100 is not compatible with the iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd
gen), iPod nano (5th gen), or iPhone (2G/3G/3GS). This iPod interface will also not charge
the iPod nano (4th generation). *Apple firmware updates may change
The issue is that the 4th Generation iPod takes far more energy to run than your 4gb iPod. Updating the firmware has nothing to do with it. It's the amount of energy/voltage that this new 8Gig unit takes to run. Think of it as a 4 cylinder verses an 8 cylinder engine. The 8 takes far more gas to run. Blessings,

According to Crutchfield.com, which does hands-on research, "The KS-PD100 is not compatible with the iPod touch
(1st, 2nd generation) or iPhone/iPhone 3G. This iPod interface will also not
charge the iPod nano (4th generation)." I'm currently a victim to this JVC abandonment too. I'm looking for a 3rd party adapter that may solve this... Jvc better get on the ball because Ipods are moving forward with newer models... I'll get back to you if I find a compatible adapter.. K
The newer generation iPods don't always work with the iPod connection kits in a lot of the car stereos. Some of the problem is due to the fact that the new generation iPods have been changed and the stereos were manufactured before the players were released so they are not compatible. I bought my girlfriend a Pioneer car stereo with an iPod control cable, and it works fine with her Nano (not the new generation Nano) and it works with my iPod Photo 60 GB but it does not work with my iPhone 2G and I read that it is not compatible with the new Nanos or the Classics. Check with Jensen to see if the model you have is compatible with the Classic and see if there is a solution to the issue. It may not be compatible with the new video portion of the Classic firmware.
This will never work, the new ipods will only work with apple products. I've had numerous headaches with this and after many phonecalls to manufacturers I discovered that the new ipods will only play video if they see an apple authentication chip embedded inside the video cable. Sorry.
The new ipod will not work with anything other than 2008 alpine products. Apple embedded a chip in the actual cable that tells the ipod that it's ok to pay. What you need is an authentic apple video cable that can only be purchased at the apple store...then hook the inputs up to the video input on the radio.
The problem is that your iPod adapter does not have a authentication
chip in it. Apple decided to go a new route with the new iPods. They
now require a authentication chip if you want to get audio and video
out of the iPod using the dock connector. So you won't be able to hook
up your iPod to your system using your current equipment. You can
either hope that the maker of your equipment comes out with a new iPod
cable that has a authentication chip (they have to pay Apple for this
so if the company is cheap then you are probably out of luck) or just
stick with your older 5G/5.5G iPod.
