iPod classic tv out

For some reason I can't turn on TV out. If I click the action button, it remains at off. Is anyone else having this problem?

don't think classics support tv out through the headphone jack anymore, only through dock (can someone confirm/retort this). is this how you are trying to connect it?

What kinda of cord are you using? I wasn't sure. But for some odd reason i thought you need a ipod classic specific cord. Just curious.

I know that you do need a 30-prong plug to do video in 480i. i never had a video ipod, so i dont' know how they connect. But yes, it is only video connect through pin connector, aka the bottom. The cord is 50 bucks, the dock is 50 bucks. i think you can just go straight cord to tv.

Anyone with ANY of the new ipods get one of the new cables and try the video out yet?

And has anyone with a new one tried a video at the new higher setting?

I'm connecting the ipod classic using an old ipod photo dock+s-video. According to this http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300233 , I guess it doesn't work with the classic. Time to get a new dock.

Thanks for the link. Odd that it doesn't mention the touch since the apple store says it's supported. Maybe it's just limited to shipping models so far?

from the article

Testing results with old accessories have been mixed, but largely negative. iLounge has tested the new iPods with Apple’s Universal Dock and iPod Hi-Fi, both of which unlock the TV Out option—even though the Hi-Fi has no video out feature. We have also confirmed that the new iPods do not work in popular portable video displays such as the Memorex iFlip and Sonic Impact Video-55, or most speakers with video output capabilities. One notable third-party exception is Bowers and Wilkins’ recent $600 speaker system Zeppelin, which appears to contain an authentication chip and have been assisted during development by Apple, unlike its lower-priced peers.
that maybe but these types of devices are a no-go

Or at least that older ones don't. Apple is selling new versions of the cables and docks and apparently some recent third party units work fine.

The simple answer is the Apple AV cable accessory which is like $50. However, if you are like me with a third party portable video player, mine is the Sonic Impact V55, then the current firmware version does not allow the TV out to work. I am in the process of finding/downloading the 1.0.2 version firmware that will supposedly allow this function to work. The AV cable for an additional $50 annoys me. Plus it prevents the nice streamlined interface for the player docking.

Hope this helps.

You are correct; on my 4th, 5th gen iPods, I could use my headphones' jack and plug in the A/V out cable from there. The Classic version requires a dock connector; there is even the icon there than says I have to use the dock connector.

I believe there is a new AV cable that simply plugs into the bottom of the iPod Classic. No Dock.

Well you want plug it into the dock. I checked it out at the store; you can do one of two things: plug it in directly, it comes with component and audio cables and a USB plug; or you can plug it into the dock. It's not any difference. You're paying $50 for the dock that really does nothing; and $50 for the A/V cable.
