Just heard on aussie tv that the new 6th gen ipod "movie ipod" (released next year) will be capable of using a tv as a display. Apple also said that they will be releasing full movies to download from itunes the day the movie is released on dvd. Sounds like fun :compress:

Source = channel 9 news.

emm you mean it cant allready, because ive been doing that since I got a video one... all you have to do is get one of those like headphone jack to rgb cables and play arond with them (the colors dont match up since apple wants you to buy the seperate dock...) or do you mean like record live tv? like tivo on the go?


thanks

Nanos don't work. Only iPod 4th gen (photo), 5th and of course 5.5(?) generation can do that. That is, connect your iPod to TV, and listen to music, watch pictures slideshows and (5th and 5.5th generation) watch movies.

it's called the ITV and it's a wireless device coming out in January or so...... I think the price is $299..... you can stream music, movies, and anything else from itunes to the device......

Big deal....... I just use my modded xbox with xbox media center on it and it does the same thing with a wireless network adaptor..... and I'm not limited to itunes compatible stuff.... I can play any vid file I want...

I didn't say anything about an IPOD..... The widescreen ipod is still just rumor.... The ONLY new product announced for next year is the ITV.... and you cannot take that on the bus either...... Well you could but you would look dumb..... but I guess maybe you are used to that......

There's your information.
