I've seen the ads for a cable to connect the iPhone to a TV. Will this just show everything that's on the iPhone screen directly on the TV screen like when you use the cable with a laptop or will it only show videos?

Apple sells it for $49 but I saw some on eBay for $5 to $10. My doubt is that I saw a few that said their cable will not work with version 3.0. I got this link off of another thread here and it shows the 3GS as capable.

Has anyone done this yet with a 3GS or a 3G with Version 3.0 ?

Just Video's you have on your phone, Also Youtube Video's will play through your TV

And it will display photo's on you TV

But if you have your iPhone Jailbroken you can get a app from cydia to display whatever is showing on the iPhone screen

It is called TVOut

Thanks. Guess I'll have to wait until later when I decide to JB. I wanted it to display what I was surfing on Safari. For now I'll just have to tether it to my laptop and connect the laptop to the big screen.
