    I'm assuming yes. Only with the Apple AV-Out cable. I know the iPad version of Netflix can output over VGA and the AV-Out cable, so the iPhone version might also do the AV-out and VGA (VGA out is only on the iPhone 4).

    A dock to HDMI adapter would be absolutely amazing. However, with Monoprice apparently out of the game now, that seems pretty unlikely to happen.

    Such a thing is not possible on the iPhone or iPad.

    Ah you're right. I had always assumed the universal dock did HDMI, guess I was wrong :p

    Hold on there Sparky...;) I have an iPod Classic. I bought the cable set up from Apple that allows you to connect it to your TV.
    I tried it with the iPhone 4.
    Works like a charm! Set it up the exact same way I set up the iPod Classic. The only difference is that you don't get the text warning message asking whether you want the video signal to go out to the TV. It just happens when you start to play the movie on your iPhone 4.
    Simple and easy! Love it when THAT happens!:)
    NOW, having re-read the original question, I have yet to try it with Netflix. I'll see what happens and report back! It helps to read the question first before popping off! My bad...

    I understand that you can do video out from the IP4, however, has anyone actually checked to see if you can stream it from the Netflix app out to your TV yet?

    I have checked and Netflix did not work with the Apple's HD Cables on the iphone 4. Work great with my iPad but no go on the 4. I thought for sure it would work. Why include that in the iPad version but not the iPhone version. Seems strange but so is leaving out the ability to update your queue on the iPhone version.

    I used the Apple A/V cables on my iPhone4 and was able to stream to the TV's in my cars. So yes it works!

    If this is true than this is great!! But one thing, can you get 720p on a 42" or larger screen?
