    That picture is from a iPhone 4s. I now have one and tried to hook up component cable to Sony Bravia HDTV. Still no tv out option as shown in the picture. The tv says there is no signal from the input in which I have the cable plugged. Everything is connected. I wonder if the cable may have been damaged? I can't imagine the Verizon iPhone 4s would be the reason for this not working?!

    My Ipad2, Ipod4 and Iphone 4 All are running IOS Ver 5.0.1  But I believe this bug is from a previous version of 4.

     

    I have tried it with an Apple Cord and a Belkin Cord.  Connected and not connected. In TV, Computer and the head unit of my Nissan.  They all worked around 8 months ago.  But I tried agian a couple of months ago and whilst there is  Audio  there is no Video.  It has to be the PAL/NTSC toggle.  But where is it?

     

    Come on Apple raise your game.  Dont go the way of Microsoft and forget what your business is based on.  Us your customers.

    I'm having the EXACT same problem and getting frustrated with no solutions being posted. I'm planning on returning my cable. It's from Iogear.

    I keep looking for alternatives as the lack of a fix is frustrating. I have an Apple TV gen 2 and the latest software upgrade let's you display video via Airplay. Except only for iPad2s and iPhone 4S devices. Oops, I have an iPad and iPod Touch 3rd gen. So I got a VGA converter and am doing OK connecting to my TV with my Windows laptop. Very disappointed with Apple.

    I can connect my laptop to my tv, as well. However, I keep running into the same problem: I don't have wi-fi or any other access to the internet, other than by using my iPhone. So, no Apple TV, no Roku, no Netflix from my computer to my tv. I understand that this puts me in a category with many folks in their golden years, but I'm REALLY short on funds, and unlike New Orleans, my town doesn't offer free wi-fi. That's why I'm desperately looking for a solution that isn't going to cost me (more) every month.

    This is a little off-topic for this thread, but if I had to choose between wifi in the home and a data account on my mobile phone, I'd go for wifi in the home. Depends on the pricing options available in your area, of course, but for me the monthly charges would be about the same and you get a lot more with wifi in the home (laptop access to free tv on hulu, abc, acorn online, others). You could use the wifi for home access on your iPhone but then have Internet access on the phone only in free places like libraries, coffee shops, etc.That's the trade-off. May be an additional initial outlay for a DSL Modem/bridge or something but could be very cost-effective considering what you get--better speed and much broader access. For example Hulu from a laptop has lots for free but via a mobile device requires a subscription.

    I've got an iPhone 4 CDMA model running 5.0.1 and I'm having the same issue. I have a Dynex iPod dock that works perfectly fine with my sister's iPhone (which is exactly the same as mine) but the dock just doesn't work with my iPhone. I plug it in and I still don't get the TV Out option or anything but I do get sound from the TV.

  • scorpiorow Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    So I had left the component cable sit for a month and tried it again today to see if I could get the tv out option on my iPhone 4s with iOS 5.0.1. Still no tv out. Still no video. Just audio. Tv doesn't recognize component cable is plugged into that input on tv. I think the cable may be faulty. Has anyone heard whether this is only an iPhone with ios 5.0.1 problem?

  • Dikupinyuhash Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have the iPhone 4 ( not the 4s ) running 5.0.1 ... I have no video out settings .. And no "iPod" it is called "music" & "video" , again there are no video out options .. I have tried everything ! I have a alpine Iva-nav-10 in my car and my spare iPod plays videos and songs perfect on the screen .. I want yo connect my iPhone and watch live tv through Comcast ... If someone knows anything .. It would be a big help ..S

    Another voice heard from...thanks for the back stab Apple...they must be worried people will use a work around ( ie Netflix) to view content that they could supply via iTunes for a premium...I've been a big supporter of Apple, but crap like this tells me the accounting dweebs are taking over, and making decisions based on the bottom line, not the user experience. RIP Mr Jobs...the worms are burrowing into the Apple.

    Firstly, if you had read the thread before cluttering it up with another unfounded complaint, then you would have understood what really was the cause of the issue – it's a bug that was introduced in iOS 5 GM.

     

    Furthermore, it is obviously being worked on, as are any bugs that Apple's developers come across.

     

    Secondly, conspiracy theories with no evidence such as yours don't do anything except make you sound ignorant.

     

    Since I don't want to also be guilty of making assertions without evidence, here are three reasons why:

     

    1. Netflix has had TV out since May 2010 for its iPad app, and October 2010 for its iPhone app.

    2. Furthermore, in the iOS 5 betas, TV Out was working correctly.

    3. Not only that, but this bug is exhibited even in Apple's official apps (YouTube, Safari, Videos).

     

    Hence, your "theory" does not add up.

    I have an iPad 2, the trout works fine on that (most of the time) but my iPhone 4 with iOS 5 does not have tv out. I can't wait until they fix this.

  • genefromwilton Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Bad news, gang, I just tried it with iOS 5.1 and still no dice for TV OUT on my iPad 1. Still just audio. Maybe Apple is not going to fix this to force people into newer versions of the iPad. Too bad for me: I started using Apple products just when they started acting like every other annoying and insensitive big company. So I'll buy their products when I like them but there's not a lot of reason for brand loyalty anymore outside of ecosystem convenience.
