    Hi,

    I have an ipod touch, and have just bought a Denon ampli with an apple universal dock. The sounds works great, but to watch a video, I'm told to go to settings, video, TV out. However I don't see the otpion TV out . Any help would be appreciated.

    TIA
    Patricia

    go to Settings > Video. there should be 4 options on your screen. 2 on top, a space in between with the words TV Out in faded letters, and 2 underneath that saying, Widescreen On/Off and TV Signal NTSC > (or PAL)

    you cant use any old video devices with the new ipod. Your wonderful, neighborly apple is making you buy a 50 dollar cord that does it.

    Yup. You have to buy a new cable straight from Apple since they put in authentication chips so that only apple made hardware/cables will work now

    This isn't any old device, I just bought it ! I will get back in touch with Denon, they could at least warn you about that. Thanks for the help, it is appreciated.

    Any Idea what the authentication chip does ?

    Hi,

    I am a new itouch user. And this is my first post. I have read somewhere (iLounge??) that even the Hi-Fi (amplified speaker dock from apple) unlocks the TV-Out. So my question is ?

    1. Does it talk on the serial lines ?

    2. If yes any idea if it negotiates once and then sits back ?

    3. Does anybody have that $49 cable with an electronics background to figure out whats going on? Can a PIC based hack be made (I am ready to do the PIC programming which I do on a daily basis to earn living)

    Regards
    Kolguy
