I work at night. I own an iPhone 3G S.  I connect my iPhone to my portable tv and watch movies and YouTube videos to pass the time. Well, up until iOS 5 that is. I did the update like everyone else. Fooled around with the new features and even signed up for iCloud. But when it came time to watch a video, through YouTube or Photos or the new Video app, nothing happened. It wouldn't play on my tv. I went to the settings and found the tv out setting missing. Is there a way I can go back to iOS 4.x? And where do I go to let Apple know my disappointment?

Thanks,

iPhone 3GS, iOS 5

    wow. does iOS5 really not let you output anything to a tv from iphone/ipad? why are they still selling their $40 adapters then?

    After the ios5 upgrade to my iPhone 4, I can't find the TV out settings, but the Netflix app still works with my HDMI cable.  I'll try youtube another time to see if it works.

    I received the msg to about component cable not being optimized for my iPhone 4 before ios5 upgrade, since upgrade I don't get msg. Furthermore, I don't get any video from iPhone 4 to tv through component cable but do get audio. I am thoroughly frustrated at this point

    I even tried it on another tv today. Still just audio. Starting to wonder if it is my iPhone.

    I just got a new Composite AV Cable (Apple brand) in the mail today and plugged it into the TV display in my van with my iPad 2 as a video source to test it out.  The audio works fine, as expected; but the video was scrolling like the vsync was off

     

    I plugged in my daughter's Gen4 iPod Touch, and it worked fine.

     

    I'm thinking that my iPad is set to PAL instead of NTSC, but since iOS5 removed the ability to change the output settings, I cannot make the change.

     

    Is there any way to make sure that I'm outputing an NTSC signal from my iPad 2, and if it was set to PAL, would a scrolling effect be what I'd be seeing on my display?

     

    Thanks.

    This is not true. The setting has just been relocated.

    Go to Settings > General > TV Out > TV Signal and you'll be able to select from PAL or NTSC.

    I also have this issue with my iPad 2. I have tried it on several iPad 2's, but only get audio output (clear audio, at that). The Apple Composite AV Cable (Model: A1258) used to work fine on my old first-gen iPad with iOS 5 beta...

    I see no "TV Out" option on the General tab of the Settings app.

    Btw, I forgot to mention that it only appears when you connect the cable.

    Ahh!  That's why I didn't see it.  I looked without having it connected.  I'll give it a try and let you know.

    It works.  I found the option after plugging in the cable and found that it was in fact outputting as PAL instead of NTSC.

     

    Setting the option to the proper setting fixed the display issue.  I can now show movies from my iPad onto a TV.

     

    Thanks for the help.
