  • TVOut for a 60 Inch iPhone Screen

    If you wanted video out enabled for games and apps on your iPhone when you saw it working for the popular AppStore game Wingnuts Moto Chaser then your time has come. TVOut via Cydia provides you with the ability to make any application on your iPhone capable of sending a video out signal. Simply set which applications you want to be capable of video out via TVOut.app, plug in your AV cable to the iPhone and TV and you'll be all set. Simply run the application and it will show up on your TV!

    [ame=http://www.vimeo.com/2892363]TVOut and Tris on Vimeo[/ame]

    Controlling the app can be a bit difficult since the iPhones screen will be completely black while running an application that is sending video out -- you sort of have to guess where to tap the screen in order to navigate. Control this isn't much of a problem for simple apps (like Tris in the video above) and gameplay can actually be fairly enjoyable. TVOut also has a nice interface to turn it on and off for individual applications (below).

    While TVOut is pretty cool there are of course some things that are still being worked on by the developer Lance Fetters (ashikase). OpenGL applications like Google Earth don't currently display properly. Landscape mode is not currently an option but is on the docket for a future version. Also to be added in later are individual settings on a per-app basis.

    Want to play with some video out? You can grab TVOut via Cydia. Just search for "TVOut"

    thx billchase2 for the tip

      I got a set delivered yesterday and so far only getting audio? I've tried both screen splitter as well as the new tv out via cydia but as of this minute no luck? I came here to see if there was a solution I might use but nothing yet? I'm on 2.2fw by the way and the cables are not the apple but the cheaper set I got off eBay, red,white&yellow with the USB male end for charging the phone , I'll keep trying and revise if I get it working, If anyone knows of known issues and or solutions please post . Thanks in advance.

      I have fw2.2 1st gen iPhone and the app works great! (I think my cables are Belkin and I only have the composite. not RGB) You are correct though $50. I travel a lot so I use them to watch movies at the hotel.

      I hope in future updates they come out with video on both tv-out and the iPhone screen. Try looking up another location using maps. Your playing the guessing game on where tabs are. it seem maybe it is in the works cause there is an option for the springboard but it is shaded out right now. REAL AWESOME APP so far though!!! THUMBS UP!! Thanks!

      Here is a link for the A/V cable for 3g iphone 2.2 FW. "partsdom.com".The cable that the vender has listed on ebay does not work with the 2.2, however, he does have the cable for the 2.2 FW, it's just not listed yet, you have to contact him, I got one from him that worked on my iphone 16g 3g 2.2.

      Has any one gotten TVOUT to work with the iphone photo library or with camera roll? I was able to get it to work with all my other app, but I can't seem to show my stills on the TV.
