Connecting iPhone to TV with USB cord

Hey, how do I listen to music or play video on my TV with my iPhone? I can get it to work with my regular iPod, but it doesn't work with my iPhone. Although I can view pictures from my iPhone, I can't listen to any of my music. It says I don't have any. I'm connecting the iPhone with just a simple USB cord, which worked for my regular iPod. Thanks!

This isn't possible due to the differences in the way the iPhone is detected, see this post regarding connecting the iPhone to an xbox 360.

Will it work with 3.0 firmware?

This should get exciting if they unlock 720P on the iPhone.
