    Ok, I did some searching and I haven't found anything about this anywhere. Is it possible to play your NES or GBA emulator while viewing it on your TV, using an AV cable? I tried it and only the sound comes through. Is there an app or a little hack somewhere that will get this to work? I do a lot of traveling and that's the main reason I got the touch in the first place and now I can't imagine a 14 hour flight without it!. It would be excellent to be able to hook up to any TV and play it on the big screen. You wouldn't have to worry about your fingers covering up the game either.

    I would also love to see this. I think coverflow on the tv would be great as well.. Any devs have any clue how this could be done?

    the av cables only do video (maybe more than video, music also but i dunno bout apps)but apple has a connector that connects to the bottom of the iphone and some of the pins im guessing give the output? watch the march 6th event and you willl know what im talking about.

    i bet apple will do this in june when the "offical" apps come out. Im sure they will get a whole bunch of sales if they do.

    I wasn't sure what section to post this in but if there really isn't a way to do this currently is there a better place/forum section to ask this? Maybe suggest it to some developers?
