I have bought the VM9311TS for my 2001 GT Eclipse and i bought the iPod Classic 80 GB (the newer version of the ipod video) and unlike the iPod Video my newer iPod says connect video cable and wont play video unlike my brothers older iPod Video.
Is there something i can do to play the video on the 9311 without the cable that plugs in the top of the iPod and just use the jlink like my brother does

An iPod Classic 160gb CAN BE made to work with one of these units, December 22, 2007
Technophile "Technophile" (Detroit, MI USA) - See all my reviewsThere is a way to make the iPod Classic 160 gb work with the Philips line of Portable DVDs with iPod docking but its awkward and requires the purchase of Apple's Composite AV Cable ($50). Apple installed in the 6th generation iPods what amounts to an electronic lock. When you set the player up to send out video externally it will ask you to "Please Connect Video Accessory". It's looking for the sixth generation Apple Composite AV Cable plug. Somewhere embedded in the plug's configuration is the key to the lock that the player is looking for. Once you insert this plug the movie you have selected will begin to play and all you have to do then is remove the cable and insert the unit into the dock and you should see your video displayed. As i said before, this is an awkward work around and should you go back to the main menu to select a different movie you will have to perform these steps again. For those of you (like me) who were stuck with one of these units, this work around just might make you feel a little better about your purchase. Good Luck!!!!
