    Does anyone have experience with it? are retina graphics blurry on big TV?
    From what I have learnt, for newer devices you need iPad VGA cable(best option) and cydia app- TVout2

    My iPhone is not jailbroken, but Rage HD works perfectly with video out.
    And It's awesome on the big screen with the component cable; playing from couch distance seems playing with a 360.
    I really wonder why every game does not support this.
    If I could beam video out to the TV, I would buy an apple tv in a heartbeat, using the iPhone as a controller.

    This would make ne very happy. The Apple TV isn't that much more expensive than the cables!

    I paid for the component cable plus the universal dock exactly the price of the new appletv (which you can consider just an expensive hdmi wireless cable).
    I use the iPhone as a mediacenter A LOT with this config (lots of movies on TV via the iPhone).
    If only Apple would enable Safari video out....
    I really do not know why only Steve Jobs can use the full video out feature...

    Said that, Rage on TV is awesome, even if not my kind of game.
    I do hope video out feature become the standard for every game/app.
