I got a 3g, i bought an tv out a/v online and its not the one from Apple. Here is the thing, i plugged it in and it Worked! For 2 seconds, then the video part died and audio still played, its not supposed to work from what i hear, but it did for 2 seconds... I kept trting diff. things after that and i gave up yelling WTF.... Any ideas? Opinions?

Ive got the Apple av cable and it works ok, but im not too impressed with the quality of the video. But my question is why did you buy an off brand if you knew it was not supposed to work?
