does anyone know what the tv signal option does? If u can watch tv on here I would like to know how!
Are you talking about the iPhone, tv signal out?

That is for watching the content of your iPhone movies, photo etc on a TV. That requires a special $49 cable with a microChip embedded in the cable which allows you to see it on TV. Unfortunately, only Apple has that cable with the chip.

I have em. Where's the chip? I never knew about that.
The chip is for Authentication for the output. I am sure other vendors will have a cheaper as soon as they buy one and disect the Apple one and discover what the chip is, thus maybe the vendors will sell them for $20.

I know if I buy one now then the next day a cheaper ones out.

I know what you mean, Nick. If I buy after they sell for 20, then they'll come free in boxes of cereal!

Does anyone know if there is a demo of the tv out feature of the iPhone? I'm trying to figure out how decent it would look on my hi def TV. I have a Wii and the internet surfing does not look good on my TV. YouTube looks bad on it as well. I would imagine the iPhone would look just as bad as most of my movies on it are ~700Mb, 2 hour movies that were originally in .Avi format and converted to quicktime format so I can see them on my iPhone.

Let me know if you know of any sites that show this feature, how well it works, etc...
