    the new iPhone update says TV out is supported....does this mean we can watch our TV shows from iphone into our TV? and what do you use to connect?

    I think you have to do it through the dock.

    I have a dock with video out I use with my iPod all the time. I tried it with the iPhone tonight, and it did not work. The audio comes through, but not the video. I have a feeling you're going to need to purchase the apple dock with video from Apple. I hope I'm wrong, I'd hate to have to buy another video dock, when I already own one.

    the instruction video on itunes states it should work with the AV CABLES..
    On ipods there is a button that shows TV out and asks what you would like to do...I cant find anything like that on the iPhone....
    Iphone just asking what type of Tv Signal and if you want widescreen

    Yeah, that Widescreen button did nothing. Still no video out of the iPhone. Again, thanks Apple for giving us new feature they don't yet work!

    New AV cable needed

    You will need a new AV cable or a New AV Dock in order to do AV out with any of the new generation iPods or iPhone. The new generation iPods and iPhone output the video through the dock connector now instead of through the headphone jack. The one bonus now is that they can output higher quality component video. The cables are expensive though $50

    Yes, that would work too if you have a older TV that does not have a component connection.
