    is it possible to connect ipod to TV?
    How & what cables or dock would i need?

    i did some research and found some cable but then there was talk of chip embeded in cable and some compatibility issue.

    OK I see you can use some help.

    Any firmware form 3.1.x or above will only allow video out (to tv) on OEM ipod touch component or composite cables ($50 from apple). The new firmware checks the cables for an added capacitor or resistor (which is unknown to us at this time--not a chip) to detect if the cables are OEM or not.

    However, if you think that price is too much. I advice you to get a generic composite cable, jailbreak your ipod touch, and downloaded the resupported repo app. This is the best advice I can give you (however jb=void in warrenty).

    i just bought Apples composite AV cable from walmart, was about $50. Box says ipod touch but doesnt mention about 3rd generation. I will try it out. There are cables on ebay for about $5 but not confident on it.

    About warranty - i read on this forum somewhere that jailbreak do not void the warranty. So i am actually confused if i should do it or not. Obviously i wouldnt want to void it for atlease a year.

    Well you do void warranty with jb, but when you dfu restore your ipod, you re-activate your warrenty.
