I hook the cable to the ipod and TV (I tried multiple TV's),I switch the ipod video setting to TV out on (also tried ask) and the ipod screen says TV out enabled please connect video accessory. The video accessory is connected I don't know what else to do.
It is my understanding that the iPOD Classic utilizes some new video chip technology that makes the monster cable incompatible with the Classic range. My monster cable worked with the 80gb iPOD video, but not with my 160gb Classic. I bought the Apple composite video cable and it worked fine. Go figure.

Absolutely, I have this myself. My 5th Gen works great, but the 160GB would not show movies, just played music. Apple has an adapter cable set that allows you to hook your Ipod to your TV. $50 buy it! You can charge and watch your stuff on your flat screen. It also unlocks your Ipod TV out setting for your Video 55. Set you IPOD video setting to TV Out: on, select your movie and play. Plug in the IPOD nip to your Ipod then set your Ipod into the Video 55. A bit of a pain but works flawlessly. If you select a different movie you have to do this all over again.
sounds to me like the differnence between watchiing in progressive and interlace. these older tube tv's are not capable of displaying a progressive scanned image. like the first dvd players. check your video out settings on your ipod to make sure its an interlace output.
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
