    Ok I know this has been asked but there was no straight answer at the time and couldnt find it afterwards. Is there a hack or something that enables vid-out through the headphone jack. The a udio out has three rings and so does the jack. So is this possible?

    You need to get one from Apple.

    No hack needed.

    I connect my ipod touch to my home stereo using cables that came with my portable dvd player. The cables connect just like headphones. I have also used my computer speakers that connect through the audio jack as well. Video is a who other thing. You have to have special cables that have the chip to be compatible with the ipod touch. I was going to include the link to the video cables at the apple store but the site is down while they are updating the apple store.

    There is no way (to my knowledge) to make video go through the headphone jack. It has to go through the 30-pin connector to have video and have a chip from apple.

    Some composite cables (A/V to TV) use the dock, and others use the headphone jack.

    So yah, theres composite cables that use the headphone jack that enable audio/video through A/V cables that can be fed to your television. Its no hack. It exists.
