    Apparently, the 1.1.3 iPhone update enables TV output via either the old AV Cables or the old Universal Dock's S-Video port. This is what I heard on iLounge.

    Can someone confirm this, also photo's would be great! I can't update yet, until they jailbreak it.

    i doubt it, that cable is fairly specific to the video ipods, the classics don't function with it either. i don't believe the phone itself has the hardware to use such a cable.

    I can CONFIRM that this works.
    I tried it with my un-jailbroken iPhone running version 1.1.3. At first it gave the "This accessory is not made to work with iPhone" screen, I clicked no, then went to my iPod section, went into Videos played Serj Tankian's Empty Walls video, and walla it worked. I used it via the S-Video connection because I dont have the old video out cable.

    I have the old dock, the one with the stain mark on it and I have the new dock the morse code one (black thingy on front). The new one only works with my Apple AV cable (the one with the USB and 3 cables) and the old one works with S-Video. I must say I am pretty pleased now.

    Thanks for checking that out! Great news that Apple is easing up a bit with all the intentional crippling! This is a good move.

    That's pretty cool. The Agent 18 case comes with a dock insert for the iPhone for the old dock too. I'll have to try this later

    i'm talking about the three band 1/8" cable, any output to the dock connector should work from 1.1.1 and after

    Umm no it didnt. Before it would only show video our through the new AV cables that apple sold or through the new universal dock attached to the AV cable. 1.1.1 didnt allow video out through the old dock like the new 1.1.3 allows. How do I know this? I own both universal docks and the AV cable. The regular out cable (the old video out cable that apple sold) is still not compatible because the headphone jack is missing some connectors that allow this to be possible.

    If you look at the headphones that came with your iPhone, you will see that it uses all the connectors - one is used for the microphone. In theory that could also output video, but it would need some way of knowing when to do this.

    So it isn't missing connections, but maybe it wouldn't be easy to implement this.

    true but I really doubt Apple will allow you to use a $20 dollar cable compared when they can sell you a $50 dollar cable. More money for them.

    Thank you so much! I was ready to sell my a/v connection kit to buy the new one, until I chanced upon this thread. So I broke it out, and it does indeed work! I'm using the dock with the 3 connector cable. I haven't heard any interference yet with airplane mode off, and it works with youtube :) now I don't need an apple tv

    Sonic Impact Video-55 and Iphone???

    So if the Iphone v. 1.1.3 video out works with the old Universal Dock, does it work with any other accessories, like the Sonic Impact Video-55??? Anybody try this?

    Thanks
