Connect iPod video to a TV using a normal A/V cable
December 21, 2006
I think this little precious information should be well known already. But I didn’t until now, so I am reposting this (a good use of the echo chamber).
Here’s where it gets a little tricky. In order to make your TV play back the iPod signal, you’ve got to redirect the outputs. You can’t just plug the yellow RCA plug into the yellow RCA jack and the red into the red or the white into the white. No. Those geniuses at Apple send the video signal over the red RCA output. (Normally it arrives on yellow.) The sound comes through the white and yellow plugs.
