Need Itunes TV Viewing Progam

I purchased a cable to connect my Ipod to the TV, the audio works but the video does not. One of the recommendations they suggested to get the video to work is to download a TV watching program from Itunes.

Any suggestions on what a good program would be?

What type of cable did you buy, and what iPod do you have (classic, touch, shuffle)?

try swaping the cables around. yellow for red, for example. I think apple has a proprietary head phone jack when it comes to video.

Re: Need Itunes TV Viewing Progam

Since you're saying "program", I assmue you mean app, and since iPod Classics don't utilize iOS I'm also assuming you're using an iPod Touch.

There shouldn't be any reason you need any app to output to your TV. You need a different cable. If it's a 3rd party cable (i.e. the Monster iTV), then be aware that different generations of the iPod Touch have various restrictions that prohibit them from outputting correctly to a TV. Some work, some don't. So it' trial and error or confirming which generation iPod you have and then looking for reviews online.

In cases like this, your guaranteed bet is to get the Apple brand connector.
