How to use ipod to watch videos out on tv

I know there is an av cable that you can buy and plug into the tv to watch videos and displays photos from the ipod. This av cable can be bought for both hd tv and regular tvs. I can use this wire to watch videos using old ipods because they have an actual tv out switch which van be toggled on and off in the video settings. so when i turn it on it works on my tv. for the ipod touch however there is no such switch in the video settings. it says tv out but there is not switch like the other ipods. is there any way to turn the tv out on or is there something i am missing?

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

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.
