    Padacs AV Cable+USB is basically exactly what it says on the box! The white cable that looks exactly like an official Apple cable has the red, white and yellow AV connectors and a USB connector, and is designed to enable you to connect your iPad, iPhone, iPod nano, classic iPod and iPod touch to your TV via the AV connection. Once hooked up, you can either play videos from your device on your TV, or a photo slideshow (complete with backing music from your iPod player, if you wish). It's a neat little gadget that simply gets on with doing the job and nothing more. Once you've connected your device and switched to the AV input on your TV, simply play a video from your device just as you would if you were normally watching it directly on the smaller screen to see it appear on the big screen. The same goes for the slideshow mode which can be accessed via Photos. It's very easy to use, and it works, which is all you want really!

    You can get the Padacs AV Cable+USB for $39.95 from padacs.com.

    Your link brings up a page that says no results were found, and in the accessories section under cables there are no cables. Are you jumping the gun here?

    Hi
    Thanks for letting me know, no I wasn't jumping the gun as I got the cables from Padacs and have tested them. I didn't realise the link was broken though, so apologies! Basically you need to go to the site, then enter AV Cable in the search box, you'll then see the cable and you'll be able to add the cable to your cart by clicking on the Buy Now button. I did try that yesterday before posting the link so I know it works as I know broken links are annoying! :)

    There are a lot of broken links on that site. The only one that works is the "Buy" link. If you want more information before you buy, you are out of luck.

    You have to type it in exactly AV cable. If you don't capitalize the AV it won't work. If you do capitalize the cable it won't work. If you add an s to cable, it won't work.

    Give it another try, I just went to the main page and entered AV Cable in the search box and got the cables up and the buy box, so it should be working.

    Okay.. So RCA cables. How's the video quality??

    I'm afraid if running on a 55" LCD tv it'll look horrible..

    Maybe I'll wait for an HDMI option?

    It's not bad quality, certainly watchable even on a bigger screen, but nowhere near as good as HDMI of course!

    Padacs site

    When I go to the Padacs site, The Padacs AC Cable + USB is nowhere to be found under all of the tabs that they have on their web page?
