    If you use resupported4 you need an additional program. Resupported just enables other cables, but ios4 is still really buggy.

    To watch espn on my tv, I use resupported4 and displayout. I think you may be able to use the old school landscape tv out program, with resupported4 but I haven't tested this.

    Oh and there's a ten day trial of resupporteed4, but not of displayout

    dcx_badass ... the reason I haven't already bought one of these cable is because they say not compatible with 3Gs or iP4 ?

    and VB1 - what iDevice do you have please?

    Okay mate cheers I might as well just buy on of these then

    also can you not get resupported4 from a cracked repo ?

    Hey,

    I'm 4.1 jb on iPhone 4. I use a very old JVC head unit cable which outputs to composite (red/white/yellow vid). Cable not supported on iphones at all supposedly - but is with R4.

    You need DisplayOut to output video I *think*. Not sure. Put it this way... I couldn't get anything to work until I installed DisplayOut - but it was 5 to 5, and I was in a rush to get ESPN working - so I may well have bought too much (its only £3 a pop anyway).

    This is quoted from the "important notes" section of R4 on cydia...

    "Resupported4 will not (by itself) mirror your applications on a TV. You will need DisplayOut to show your devices screen on a TV"

    So I assumed, since I got no output without DisplayOut, that Resupported4 just enabled the unsupported cable to work with other JB software?

    Yeah that what you wrote at the bottom seems to make sense, you do know that you can get cracked cydia apps don't you?

    I will just have to wait for my cable now to see what it's like

    What do you think to the quality VB1?

    Yeah I'm not a complete moron dude - but I'd rather pay the indies who've worked to unlock the functionality apple tried to block. It's only £4 anyway, I make enough to cover it like.

    The quality is basically lower than SD, but far better than even the best online streams. I only use it for ESPN anyway. Currently Sky give Sky Mobile for free until the end of the year, so its effectively a free ESPN sub.

    Quality on everything is pretty good. Menus etc.

    I use TVoutTuner (i think it was free on cydia) and an apple component cable I got for £15 off ebay. Works really well.
