    I used to use my iPod A/V cable to watch my videos on a TV. Worked fine, no issues. Now with IOS 5 I can't seem to get it to work? I just started to use Home Sharing, so I can see all my videos on my iPhone just fine, but it won't play those out the A/V cable. That's when I noticed that it won't even play my local videos stored on my iPhone. Any ideas?

    Also, on a side note, I have been testing out Air Video and looking at similar streaming apps. Are there any that will allow me to use TV out with that as well? From what I am reading it seems Air Video will allow you to, provided you have an iPhone 4 or iPad 2. So it wouldn't work with the 3GS. Which is fine since I'll be upgrading soon anyways. But didn't know if there is a better streaming app out there that would allow me to use TV out on my 3GS.

    Check [Settings > General > TV Out > TV Signal] and see if your phone maybe got set to PAL during the upgrade to iOS5.

    I know I've seen the PAL/NTSC option somewhere but I'm not finding the "TV Out" option using the path displayed above.

    With the cable plugged in you don't see that? Won't be there if the cable isn't connected.

    On my original iPhone that option is always there, regardless of if the cable is in it or not.

    I have the cable plugged in and I'm not seeing the options either. No TV out under General. What's up?
