    Has anyone with FW 2.0 been able to check if they have an option/or can output all Ipod video to TV/Projector etc?

    Ala Steve Jobs speech/demo style, rather than just Pics & Vids etc.

    (I'm wondering, if then games can be played on the tv with 2.0 ;-) )

    That in it'self would make it worth changing to 2.0, when it's officially available....

    Cheers!


    Edit: I'm a bit sus of the setup from the Apple SDK launch - if you look at the section with TouchFighter, there is a *thick* black lead coming from the iPhone as well as the Sync cable.

    Devs - There isn't a debug 'cable' is there? (I don't think so)

    Steve isn't using the AV cable we all have to project his iPod screen during demonstrations. He has a special accessory made specifically for those events, thus jailbreak developers would have to make an app or some kind of plugin that adds that feature to jailbroken ipods.

    Seeing as the 2.0 update is being targeted at "enterprises", or rather companies, would it not be logical for Apple to mass-produce and market said cable? He's aiming for the iPhone(/iPod touch) to be used by people for business purposes and say I'm a guy pitching ideas in a meeting and have pictures on my iPhone that I want to show them. Hook the iPhone up to a projector and hit the play button in photos and show them the pictures.

    Anyone else think this is a goldmine waiting for Steve Jobs to find it?

    Yeah, that makes sense. Maybe it will be an extra feature in one of Apple's App Store apps that we'll have to pay for.

    They never said any one was making it. They just said it would be a possibility if Apple made it, they would sell it.

    I can already do this with my Ilive ipod stereo. There is a video out cable on it so it works.
