You need to re-thnk how this tv works. The AVS system box that came with the TV which is at the bottom of your picture controls the inputs. So a TV antenna goes into the ANT-A in the top left corner of the back of the AVS system box. The AVS cable has to connect the TV to the AVS system. So the inputs 1 2 3 have to be all connected . I assume to watch TV you need to somehow tell the AVS system to switch the AVS to TV.
I have seen a similar system with an after market sound and video processor that switches the audio and video to the tv from many different sources.
<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>1. Connect the end of the 3.5 mm AV Cable for iPod Earphone
iPod. <br />
<p>2. Connect the RCA at the other end of the ports on the back
of your TV. <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>4. Change the channel on your TV using the extra channel or
any channel for RCA TV <br />
Your first option is to get Apple's iPod AV Cable (AU$29). Slide the 1/8-inch connector into your iPod's headphone port, connect the yellow, red, and white connectors on the other end of the cable to the corresponding RCA plugs on your TV, and you're in business. If you have an iPod Universal Dock, you can connect the iPod A/V cable to the dock's line-out port instead. You can then keep the A/V cable plugged in when you remove the iPod from the dock.
You may refer to the part 8 of this iPod tips, it will teach you how to connect iPod to TV and watch the iPod video on TV. It works pretty well for me. http://www.mac-dvd.com/ipod-tips-and-ipod-faq.html Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.
Connect your iPod to your TV with a DIY cable The iPod A/V Cable is stylish and handy, but you may feel it's not worth the money; the Belkin cable gives you twice the value per foot but costs the same overall. For a less expensive alternative, find a standard A/V cable with three RCA plugs at one end (coded red, white, and yellow) and a 1/8-inch A/V plug with three bands at the other end.
To set up your iPod for playback, plug the 1/8-inch connector into your iPod's headphone port, and then plug the yellow, white, and red RCA connectors into the RCA jacks on your TV in this non-color-coded way:
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.
To see video output on your televison, you need one of hte following versions of the Ipod:
iPhone (software version 1.1.1 or later required)
iPod nano (3rd generation)
iPod (5th generation)
iPod with color display (iPod photo)
When you plug the cord into your Audio receiver, the Ipod is only sending audio to the receiver. For your iPod to send video output to your television, you will need to buy an AV cable for your tv. Here is the link to Apple's website where you can view the A/V cables that will allow you to watch video on your television. Here it is
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
