    hi!

    just got my ipod touch today and i already successfully jailbreaked it. great! everything works fine. but now i realize, that i can't watch videos on my tv, because the ipod won't ask me, if i want to use tv out, when starting a video.

    is it because of the jailbreak? i didn't try that feature before hacking the ipod touch. i use the apple av dock connected to my tv set over composite caple, which worked perfectly with my ipod video... but now

    thanx!

    The iPod Touch isn't chipped to work with 3rd party accessories, but it should work with the Apple dock; go into the settings and mess around with the video out preferences.

    Yes, the iPod touch is a bit different from 5th generation iPods in the fact that it does video out through the dock connector rather than through the headphone jack.

    This means that you need to get AV cables that work with the iPod touch, and the Apple Universal Dock which can do video out.
