    I apologise, for some reason the TV out was 'on' and i switched it to 'off' ...

    For some reason this fixed the problem. Sorry for the useless thread.


    After an hour or so googling i have not gained any insight into my problem;

    When i am using my ipod and i go

    Ipod > Videos > Movies > "Movie"

    Only audio plays, a still thumbnail image is displayed and the track timer also.

    I realise there is a problem where if i were to go through the video podcast route this is meant to happen to conserve batter life however i do not think this applies. I would like to obviously resolve this issue and get back to watching things on my ipod. The movies i have on my ipod play fine in Itunes and i have converted them to the prefered .mp4 format.

    Any input is much apreciated.

    Also if anyway other infomation is required to aide in solving the problem i will ofc give it.

    Thankyou in advance,

    Yes when it's set to ON it output video and when you set it OFF it will play on the iPod itself.
