    Can anyone explain the secret behind the issue that only apple AV cables work for video in ipt2g?
    Can't anyone by anyway overcome this problem? Like a command line added to the firmware that disables this check?

    There is an authentication chip needed in av-out cables, Apple did this.

    That's why the only ones you can find cost a lot of money.

    Too late! the only way to buy the Apple AV cables at a cheap price was when Circuit city was going out of business. I bought both the dock and TV cable at 40% off. Don't regret doing it either - although I won't have paid full price.

    I bought a Composite AV cable off eBay and I recieved it today (4 day shipping).. It works.. Sure its an "off" brand but it works perfect for me and i paid 13 bucks. for it.. Free Shipping. Tried watching Talladega Nights when it first got here and worked

    edit: and yes I have 2.2.1 on my 2g and it is of course jailbroken
