Thanks!
I do this all the time. Purchase a digital av adapter made by apple which is mainly for mirroring your iPad 2 to the tv, but also compatible with iPhone 4, just doesn't mirror. Then purchase a cheap, though high quality, hdmi cable. Cheapest I've found is from monoprice.com. The whole set up Will cost about 50 bucks in all, about the same price as purchasing a componet or composite cable but the digital adapter is obviously digital which is going to give you a better picture. The tv though has to have hdmi port, 99% of newer TVs have this so you should be fine. Hope this helps!

Here is a new question that I can not seem to find an answer to. I have an apple RCA adaptor connected to my tv. My friend has a third party adaptor. Both phones are iPhone 4's. Mine works on both adapters. Hers does not work on either one. Is there a setting on her phone that needs to be changed for her phone to work with either adaptor?

Third party adapters usually lack the authentication chip that Apple's has. There is a way to force video out over unauthorized cables, but it requires that the user be jailbroken.
