    I received the official Apple composite cables from my link above and was quite surprised that it was basically a new set complete with the AC wall charger in a slightly damaged box. Everything was in original Apple protective film and zip ties. So thumbs up to the seller.

    So obviously they work but I am regretting not getting component instead. I thought composite (Yellow, Red, White) would be a lot more convenient since those connections are usually found on the front or sides of most TVs (hotels, projectors, etc.). However, I forgot how low quality composite looks on modern HDTVs. Granted I tried it out on a 67" 1080p TV so my experience may be skewed. It's probably OK on a 32" or smaller TV but on anything bigger it's like blurry VHS.

    The biggest TV I usually get is when I stay at a Marriott they usually have 42" plasma...I got the composite for the same reason you did - more TVs have them. And I don't need to use them at home on my big TV because that's what I have Bluray, DVD, etc for.

    But what I might do is get a set of both, depending on how well the generic ones work from this seller that I bought from on eBay.

    Good news! I got the cables today and they work great, not only for video but for iPod as well. Didn't work for games or anything else that I have installed...so not sure if it works for Netflix or not.

    You should definitely install TVOut2 for your games. It's not the greatest quality but I was playing Angry Birds before and it was fun as hell. I can see it being great when stuck in a hotel.

    I am also considering picking up the component cables too, but I'll use these for a while and see how it goes. I just know with 720p video recording on iPhone 4 I'm probably going to want to share in better quality. We'll see.
