Anyone know a decent place to buy one of these from to hookup my ipod to my telly?

I brought a cheap one off ebay for 99p but surprisingly enough it doesn't work.

I'll add a link in the next post to what I think I'm after but do I have to buy an apple one or are there cheaper alternatives?


  1. Ask
  2. Apple
  3. iPod

Or, if you want to save around £26, get this:


It's $2.78 delivered, which is around £2, is confirmed to work well with iPod 5G (which isn't the classic btw - Apple put proprietary chips in their later models to stop third parties making these items).

Hope it helps.

thanks for the reply - that looks exactly the same as the one I got from ebay though & when I try to use it I get a piccy on my ipod saying insert av attatchment or something but the symbol on the piccy looks like it goes in the bottom connection instead of the earphone socket?

Does this mean I need the one with the chip in for my ipod? Odd as I thought mine was on the compatability list too?

If it's an iPod classic, then yeah, you need the genuine article. I don't know too much about it, but I haven't heard of any compatibles being released just yet. You might want to do a more exhaustive search through dealextreme though, as I was at work when I looked and didn't have time to be too thorough.
