    Are you looking for Settings > iPod > TV Out?

    I haven't tried the iPhone yet, but if it's like the iPod you can use any 3-way mini-to-RCA cable, but the colors won't match.

    In other words, if you buy the Apple cable then Yellow=Yellow, Red=Red, and White=White. If you buy some other brand the colors are mixed up, but it still works fine. Just move them around until you figure out what's what.

    I point it out since the other cables are usually cheaper.

    You can't use the old or third party cables. Apple now requires an "authentication chip" on the cable. Your only choice is to go with Apple's overpriced cable.

    Just Purchased AV Component

    I just purchased the Apple AV Component for my iPhone 3G. However, I cannot get it to work. I made all the proper connections between the TV and the phone (so I thought :confused:). What could I be doing wrong?
