    Hi, wondering if the fact I bought my iTouch in U.S. a reason why it will not show moives on TV with Av cables? In Ireland.

    The newer ipods (3g nano, classic, and touch) have to use a special newer cable that connects through the dock connector.

    It's running about $50. I was :mad: when I found out...

    Yeah, I bought the AV cables that connect through the dock for $50. It comes with an AC ( wall ) adapter that any dock cable ( USB ) can plug into to charge the iPod Touch. It all works well and is worth the money if you need those features. You get AV cables, and extra dock cable and the AC adapter. The same purchase for any cell phone would be more than $50, from my experience.

    Hey, have you upgraded to 1.1.3 yet? If you have, then try playing a video to your TV and see if it skips or stutters every 15 seconds or so.

    I have upgraded to 1.1.3, the day it was available. I've watched a couple shows on the TV using the AV cables and they are fine, no skips or stutters.

    Watching via a small LCD TV, not a tube TV, haven't watched it on a tube TV yet, don't know if that makes a difference or not?

    ITouch Use with the television

    I am a K-12 Educator. We gave classroom teachers the ITouch for a workshop we teach called "ITouch History," which teaches them how to use primary resources in the classroom. We also gave them the AV cables so they could make PowerPoint or keynote presentations on their desktop, sync them to the ITouch and play them on a classroom TV. Worked great!!!

    You can find out more about the cables by going to:
