    I have a iPhone 3g on 3.0 jailbroke with redsn0w.

    I downloaded the app TVout from cydia, but when I turn it on and I plug all the cables in, nothing shows up on the screen but you can hear sound.

    If anyone knows what I might be doing wrong please let me know.


    Thank you.

    I've not tried this, but I've read that you need Apple cables. There is a decoder in the line which allows video out. Make sure the line plugs into the base of the phone. You will only get sound from the head phone jack.

    mine works... make sure that the app your trying to project is enabled on the TVOUT app itself, then plug it in.

    This does not work for me. I am using an OEM product on the 3GS and have used the cable by itself and with the TVOut app.

    I'm not willing to pay the full price for an Apple cable to see if this works.

    Not ORB, but I was watching the live feed from the MLB.tv app.

    What I do is:

    1. Open the TV-Out app.
    2. On the preferences page, tap the app that you want to be projected, it should say "On".

    3. Start the stream from my phone.
    4. Plug in the Apple wires into phone, and then TV.
    5. Enjoy!

    Test it out first with a video on your ipod and then if that works, maybe ORB is the culprit.
