Ok, I need some major help here. I will try to give you all the specifics I have, please ask if you need more information. I have a RCA HDTV with 480I and 1080 reception. the TV has BOTH component and composite imputs.
I first tried using the COMPOSITE cables to play videos from my iPhone to my television. No picture or audio would work. The only SIGN there was a connection was when i pressed "Format" on my remote (which changes my TV picture from normal, to zoom to stretch), there was a brief 1/2 second of audio I heard from the movie I was trying to play. I have already made sure my TV output in my iPhone is on PAL like it should be, so I don't think it has tok do with the settings on the iPhone.
I just bought the COMPONENT cables and plugged them in the corrent component ports (they ARE in the correct colors, that ISN'T the problem). same exact problem as with the compisite cables. No video or audio. Brief 1/2 second of audio when I press the "Format" button.
I also have a TV cable box (Time Warner) and a Home Theater system. I used the audio connectors of the component cables to the theater system and connected it to the iPhone and it works GREAT. I just want to be able to play videos from myiPhone to my TV.
ANYONE, please help. THANK YOU!

If you are using the iPhone you will need a special component cable that costs $50 from Apple. It has a CHIP in the cable that iPhone reads in order to send out the signal to your TV.

I have the correct APPLE cable. I know about that, I don't have a third party one.

I have an UPDATE though. So I have a second OLD Tv in my house I just connected my component cables to. The video and audio WORKED GOOD. But that is a broken TV, so the picture blows. So I know the cables work, I just need to get it to work on this NICE, NEW HDTV. I don't know how tho :(. IDEAS?

Did you set the output settings in the iPhone to widescreen?

Yes, it is on widescreen. I have tried both Widescreen on and off. Still no picture or audio. it obviousy HAS to be something to do wth my HDTV, but for the life of me I cannot figure out what.

I don't have it plugged in the dock. It is connected directly into the bottom of my iPhone.
