ERROR FIXEDI dont understand why the iPod Video would have Left/Right reversed. All iPods Ive used have output audio correctly.APPROVED
ERROR FIXEDI believe the ipod a/v cable and the ibook a/v cable are different so i dont believe this would work for ibook, but probly for ipod (or vice versa).
ERROR FIXEDhttp://www.anythingbutipod.com/archives/2006/11/microsoft-zune-av-cable-pinouts.php

while its the same connector, the different products use different pins for different purposes.
ERROR FIXEDIts wrong, the pin 3 is GND and pin 4 is VIDEO
2009-10-21 19:13:19rev. 3ERROR FIXEDiPod Video pinout (mine is 80GB 5th gen) should be 1: Left, 2: Right, 3: Ground, 4: Video. The mistake here probably comes from several 3rd-party 3.5mm-to-RCA adapter cables on the market (I have two of them) that have the left and right RCA connectors reversed. Left should be colored white, and right should be colored red, but these cables have them backward. APPROVED
