I, like many, have just been bounced into paying 30 quid a year more for my Amazon Prime for the promise of getting Amazon/Lovefilm instant.
Accordingly, I decided to figure out how I could play such content on my TV. I have a Samsung Smart TV (2010), and that had a Lovefilm app... but they've withdrawn it now. I have a Samsung Blu-ray player (2010) and that had a Lovefilm app... but they've withdrawn that too.
But there is an app for the ipod touch 3rd Gen (which I have), so I downloaded it. The ipod touch 3rd Gen won't do digital TV out, but it will do component out at 576p. So I ordered this cable to try it out.
The cable works well for videos played from 'Videos', but won't work with either iplayer or lovefilm instant, which makes it useless to me.
Come on Amazon/Lovefilm, why can't you support TV out from the ipod? Later models can use digital TV out, and the hardware is clearly capable of doing component out, so why can't you support it too?
