    The Apple A/V cable will display Movies and Music Videos that are on your iPod. There is a way to display whatever is on the screen, but you would have to jailbreak your device which will probably lead to more confusion.

    You will need one of these cables:

    -OR-

    If you have an HD TV or Projector, you will probably want the component cable. If you have a regular TV (with the yellow video input and the white and red audio inputs), then you will want the composite cable.

    It basically allows you to have full access to your iPod's file system and install third party apps and mods. You can also theme your iPod, and do a lot of other cool things.

    Youtube, Google, or some of the threads on this site can help you jailbreak your iPod.
