Why do you think it needs an update to use this?

Because as of right now, the iPhone does NOT allow video out. You can only watch video on the iPhone itself, you can't connect a cable and watch it on your TV (like you can with a standard video iPod).

However, my concern is that these cables are for the newly announced iPod touch, and NOT the iPhone. If that were true, I'll be bummed, since I use the video out feature on my iPod a lot, and I'd like to use it on my iPhone.

Well, let's see.. Because it doesn't do video output right now... That would be why.


Have you used this av cable? How do you know it doesn't do video output with this cable?

The Apple site says it's iPhone compatible so worries there.

This is cool and not too expensive at $50. I'd get one to watch movies at someones house.

If you read the entire page (like above) you would see this:



It is supported by the iPhone.

Did anyone see this:
"Note: Component video output to television is supported by iPod nano (third generation) and iPod classic at 480p or 576p resolution, and by iPod touch at 480i or 576i resolution."

I'm concerned that it won't really do video-out with an iPhone.

I was just thinking the same thing. Maybe it does to video out, or maybe someone used the wrong graphic. ;)

From a software stand point, how different would the iThouch video code be from the iPhone video code? If they are nearly or in fact the same, would it not work just fine with the iPhone? It may be in an update but we know that there will be one for the WiFi downloading function so this may be part of that.

Has nothing to do with the cable. iPhone itself does not support video out at this time. Unless there's a pin in that 30-pin connector that works some magic. You'd think there'd be a Setting, though, as in iPods.

So they just turned your iPhone into an iTV?
In a way, but an iTV with <8GB available (versus your entire multimedia library).

Bad news. The store site no longer includes the iPhone as being compatible. I guess they made a mistake.

The one main thing is, on the iPod you have to go to settings, and switch output to TV and also select if you want to have widescreen. I looked on the iPhone after the iTunes 7.4 update in the general settings and could not find any settings to make the output switch.

Just as I suspected.

So much for the iPhone being the "top of the line" iPod.
