Very expensive everywhere else for these

£1 in poundland for the signlex brand

I will post verdict on quality in a bit


Audio comes through perfect on the TV and HIFI

Sound Quality is Great, Feel of the av cables is good,

Cable in length is about 1-1.5 meter's long


Video output on an iphone does not work, As stated due to 3.0 firmware,
If your iphone is running under that you might be in luck

I do not know about the itouch or other ipods, Feedback on those for this post would be great and helpful for others

£1 for a cheap audio cable is bargain

I paid more than £20 for mine from the apple store.
H + R

These cheapies don't work with firmware 3.0 and up, hence Apple being able to get away with charging an obscene amout of money for these things. You should be fine if your iPod is firmware 2.2.1 or below. If I am wrong I will be happily corrected

I picked up the signalex USB 2.0Data Sync Lead & Cable Charger for a £1 from there last week works great !!

Has anyone got a pic of what this av cable looks like ??

voted hot if you can get hold of one !! - shame if it doesn't work on updated software :x bad apple !!

ps a little while back had an excellent belkin leather protective case for my 1st gen Itouch for a £1 in there that was a bargain to !!!

You are correct. When restoring thats when you get all the error codes. Always had to use the origonal cable. :thinking:

The COMPOSITE cable is only an audio cable not for Video, as stated on the packaging ( I too brought one )

The yellow cable is the video, the white and red are left and right (stereo).

Why have they got 3 positions for audio ?

thanks for the warning about the iphone. it would have been another poundland bargain to go with the pile of useless stuff i already have. i think about 30% of the stuff i buy is crap, but the good stuff makes up for it

It wouldnt be useless as it will work fine for Audio just not Video, so basically allows you to dock your iPhone into your stereo and play the music threw that. Well worth a quid for that functionality alone.
#12
I'm sure if your iPhone is jailbroken that the cable will work with some sort of app.
#13
I brought this yesterday, can confirm that the video doesn't work for the iPhone, or at least the software version i'm running (>3.0).

Fine for an audio cable though.

I noticed that Poundland were selling a lot of this Signalex brand recently and so checked the info on the back. Looks like poundland have bought the brand name as it is the same address as their other "own brand" products.

Just for interest :whistling:

'Landscape TV Out ' (Free Cydia app) will fix the iPhone issues... I use it with an unofficial cable for mobile tv and its superb.

Thnx for that will give it a try :thumbsup:

Nice find.
I've been looking for a cheap line out cable to use for testing purposes with my incar stereo.
Even if this doesn't work as I want it to, I can butcher it and use the 30pin plug to make my own cable. £1 is cheaper than you can buy them on their own. :thumbsup:

I got these a few weeks ago when poundland first got them in. They will work with firmware 3 for and up for tvout IF your ipod/iphone is jailbrocken and you install something like tvout2 or simular. they work for Audio out without any trouble on firmware 3.1.2.

I'm still on 1.1.4 which I installed the day I got it, simply can't be bothered with the hassle as it's jailbroken :p

#25

Whats the pro's & con's of jail-breaking my itouch ??

This cable could be really handy watching tvcatchup etc. on old crt tv's with no freeview or sky linked.

I assume this is an app only for jailbroken iPhones?

I wouldn't imagine Apple would allow an official app which undid something they've installed to ensure you can only buy cables from them.

if you have jail broken your ipod or iphone u can download resupported and it will will perfectly fine.
i do it so their is evidece

Yeah, only for jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches. Cydia is the application manager that essentially comes with jailbreaking either product.

I have this same cable from pound land , I can also confirm the video doesn't work out on my iPhone 3gs (OS 3)

Audio works fine, and for £1 I can't argue with that.

I thought it was a limitation in the hardware as I had heard older iPhones/iPods were ok, so I tried it on my dads gen 1 iPod touch and it didn't work on that either, but I had upgraded it to OS 3 a while ago so this thead explains things.

Wish I had never upgraded it as not much difference from OS2 to OS3, but not very good of Apple to remove that feature.

In the end I bought genuine Apple cables that are very expensive.

Even using a genuine but older Apple cable didn't work (was an original Apple accessory for an iPod video/classic)

Good Question:thumbsup:


Looks like it has a USB port so you might be able to
#38
This cant be connected to a monitor as the composite cables wont work on a monitor and the usb is only for syncing and charging.
#39
Ok thanks.

Can you get some sort of composite to USB?

the usb port will be to charge the device, not output a picture
