Wrong. The manual for an iPod with iOS 4.3 included the following in theSettings>Video:
Use these settings to control how iPod touch plays videos on your TV.
Turn widescreen on or off: Choose Video and turn Widescreen on or off.
Set TV signal to NTSC or PAL: Choose Video > TV Signal and select NTSC or PAL.
NTSC and PAL are TV broadcast standards. iPod touch displays NTSC 480p/PAL 576p
when attached to a TV using a Component AV Cable, or NTSC 480i/PAL 576i using a
Composite AV Cable. Your TV might use NTSC or PAL, depending on where you bought
it. If you’re not sure which to use, check the documentation that came with your TV.
For more information about using iPod touch to play videos on your TV, see “Watching
Videos on a TV” on page 64.
the iPod touch 4g has never had any TV settings to configure. The cables that Apple sells are self-configurating, no settings, no apps.
You might had a jailbroken ioS on it before, using illegal software on it that enabled such settings.
DON'T ANSWER MY SIMPLE QUESTION WITH TELLING ME I AM WRONG!!!
***? I asked "since the video out disappeared from the ipod touch - how do I configure for the widescreen"
I did NOT ask "am I an idiot and cannot figure out my own iPod"
And two things:
1) YOU ARE WRONG - as per my post - the original ipod touch 4 configuration allowed me to do this
2) YOU ARE NOT HELPFUL - didn't even answer my post
One other thing = pirating my ability to use whatever cords I want is a serious violation of the US antitrust laws - so stop saying that.
