I have a third party iPhone4/iPad2 to rca video cable.  I hooked it up to the rca ports on my tv and my iPhone or iPad but the screen is not mirrored and pictures/videos don't play.  Before I send it back and buy the Apple cable, I thought I should find out if there is a setting that I need to change on the iPhone/iPad or should it just automatically mirror the iPhone/iPad on the tv?

 

Thanks,

    both composite and component use RCA ports

    and non of those types support mirror

     

    only vga, and hdmi support mirror

     

    and iphone4 don't support mirror with any setup

    Maybe I'm use the wrong terms.  I want to be able to view the pictures and videos from my iPhone or iPad on my TV.  I thought that is what the RCA video cable that connects to the iPhone/iPad and then to the RCA ports on the TV was used for.  If not, what is the purpose of connecting to the RCA ports on the TV?

     

    Thanks,
