Oh haha....did you base your purchase off my link or something? lol
Exactly that! Just clicked on "more from this seller" yada yada yada, hope it works!
Me too, you should have waited and let me be the guinea pig. lol
I know, but I couldn't wait. It's a great deal, if true.
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.
Thanks for the heads up!
