    Hi Redhaze,

    I don't want to watch a video on my ipod I only want to listen to music through the TV.


  • judekessler Sep 13, 2009

    I've only got a cable with two attachments - red and white (no yellow). Is that my problem?

  • judekessler Sep 13, 2009

    Do I need a cable with 3 jacks ie the yellow video jack, plugged into the TV or can I use the red and white audio jacks only.

  • judekessler Sep 13, 2009

    Thanks for clarifying that. I have attached the red and white jacks to the 'connect audio output of your AV device' as described in the manual. It's not working yet. The OSD menu list is as follows: Video, Audio,TV, Setup and Parental. I have tried each item on the menu list in the OSD but can't get the iPod to play using any of them. The remote has a button on it called iPod SWITCH which I have tried pressing in each item on the menu list. Which item on the menu list should I focus on? How does the iPod SWITCH button become active?

Here's how.
What You'll Need

In order to get your iPod connected properly to your TV, you'll need the following items on hand:

* A video-capable iPod. Any color will do.
* An iPod-compatible video. Load it onto your iPod through iTunes.
* An A/V cable. If you don't already have an eighth-inch-to-RCA cable, you can pick one up on eBay for five or six bucks shipped. Search for "camcorder A/V cable." Remember, you want a three-plug yellow/red/white RCA connection at one end and a three-banded eighth-inch (3.5mm) A/V plug at the other.

Setting Up Your iPod Video Options

Setting up your iPod video options lets you control how you export video. The iPod Video Options screen selects how your iPod handles video file playback.

To open these settings, choose Videos -> Video Settings from your main iPod menu. This screen offers three settings: TV Out, TV Signal and Widescreen. Adjust to produce the video playback style you need.
Figure 2. Videos -> Video Settings controls the way your iPod plays back video file

TV Out

Whenever you play a video file, your iPod must make a choice. Video iPods either play video on the built-in screen or they transmit a video signal out of the microphone jack. They don't do both. The TV Out option controls which behavior occurs.

Use this setting to choose from:

* No. Playback remains on the iPod itself.
* Yes. A TV signal is produced.
* Ask. The iPod prompts you whenever you play a video file.

I always use the Ask option. Yes, it does add an extra step whenever I play a video file, but it gives me the flexibility to choose playback behavior on a case-by-case basis. I like that.
TV Signal

European and Australian television sets use a different signal standard than those used in America and Japan. If you live in the U.S., your TV works with the NTSC standard. European countries mostly use PAL. Make sure you've selected the correct signal for your country.

iPods can play back widescreen video, if only on exported video. The built-in screen uses a traditional 4:3 screen ratio, rather than widescreen's 16:9 proportions. Choose Yes to produce a widescreen signal, or No to export the traditional TV output.

YOu should have option in the DVD you were watching..

When the menu plays you should have the option to switch it to 16:9 or 4:3, if this option doesnt have the menu, then you have to use the option from the TV, but this option doesnt work with the Scart lead, you should connect it throught the RCA cable to enable changing modes
