I was scrolling around and (re) noticed the <TV out> setting in settings>iPod.

How is the iPod used as a DVD player?

Do I just plug that stereo audio/video (red/white) input cable to my DVD player or the TV? (Sorry for my lack of technical terms)

Or do I need other accessories?

Thanks
Dana

You must show respect for fellow members. Do not criticize them for "not searching". Do not question their intelligence for asking a "newbie" question or something you read a few weeks back. There are thousands of threads here at Everything iPhone. If you reply, I'd ask expect members to:
a. Offer a solution
b. Direct them via a link to a discussion that has a solution or ongoing discussion.

Be kind and courteous at all times.

You need to have a special cable from Apple that allows you to watch whatever content you are playing on the iPod will play on the TV. Just go to the settings and click the TV out. Connect the cable jack to the iPod and TV.:)

jjvaldez was not disrespectful, nor did he criticize or question the intelligence of ******** in his response. where exactly do you see that in the 16 words he wrote?

most people don't bother to do a search - he simply pointed out that doing so would have gotten ******** an answer easily. i think he was entirely reasonable.

the special cable is only an iPhone thing as I use a standard stereo to RCA cable with video iPod

Thank you for your concern, but JJ did not offend me with his comment.
I DID do a search and found what I needed.

Thanks again
