    Just a quick question.
    When using the apple component cable with the iPhone 4, does it output in HD or not?
    Thanks

    I don't see anything about the IP4.

    From the page:

    Note: Component video output to television is supported by iPod nano (3rd, 4th and 5th generation), iPod touch (2nd generation), and iPod classic at 480p or 576p resolution; and by iPod touch (1st generation), iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPad at 480p or 576p resolution.

    nope neither will output 720p

    for US people NTSC

    composite max = 480i
    component max = 480p

    for Pal i think its the same thing but 576i 576p ( ive never had a pal tv so i can't say if this looks any better than ntsc 480)

    This is correct. I have the cable, and the max resolution from my iPhone 4 or iPad is 480p.

    The best way to get HD content from your iPhone to your TV will be using an apple TV and airplay.

    I wonder if that's why apple never released a proper hdmi cable?
