  Getting the Video out of Your New iPod--for Cheap!
Subject:   VCR does work after connecting IPod

I have a 80G Ipod classic. I hooked my IPod to my VCR and watched a movie just fine. The next time I tried to watch a movie, I couldn't get the movie to play from my IPod and now my VCR only has a blue screen. I have unplugged my VCR, tried the TV/VCR button, reset the VCR, etc. Nothing seems to work. I can see watch DVDs but cannot pick up TV stations through my VCR. Any suggestions?

    FYI, the iPod Classics will not work with this technique.

    This method is only good for iPods with Video up to 5.5 Generation.

    In other words, if you have video capabilities and Coverflow on your iPod (or nano) this trick won't work.

    Apple changed the game so you can no longer access video through the headphone jack, you have to output it through the dock connector, and you have to pay Apple $50 for a cable that will work.

    I love Apple, but I think this was very, very lame on their part.
