Connecting to tv?

I'm trying to use the abc player app to watch a tv show. It's great on the iPod, but I'd like to go through my tv. I've got a newer Sony Bravia with lots of input slots. I have the apple digital av adapter and an hdmi cable connecting the two. The tv says 720 something and a screen ratio, but all I get is audio. There is no picture.

I found old forum advice saying to turn the iPod video settings to tv out. I can't seem to find those settings on my iPod or iPad.

Can anyone help? Thanks!

P.s. we don't have a router, and we use a Verizon fivespot to get Internet service.

Which iPod? The current generation iPod Touch?

The tv says 720 something and a screen ratio, but all I get is audio. There is no picture.

Some more "detailed" information will probably make it easier to help you.

Exactly what Input number do you have the HDMI cable plugged into?

Have you selected that input (on the TV) to be what is to be shown on the screen?

Exactly what Model Sony TV do you have?

This at Apple.com Support might be helpful:

iOS: About Apple AV Adapter compatibility

ALso, a quick scan thru the Apple user forums indicate that others are unable to send ABC Player video to their TV's, indicating probably that this app (and ABC) does not support this.

No where on the iTunes App Store advertisement does it say that ABC Player will play other than on a iPod or iPhone & iPad. Looks like you are stuck with those 3 devices only.

As far as I know, your only option would be to use AirPlay and mirror your iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad via an Apple TV connected to you TV. (This does work, I just tried it)

The basic information:

iPod Touch gen 4, ios 5.1
iPad gen 3, ios 5.1

Sony Bravia KDL- 26L5000 The only connection I get (for audio only) is on HDMI port 2, otherwise the screen says no connection.

Thanks Everyone! I did not read the ABC player app information carefully. I can see that it won't work the way I would like. However, I'm looking forward to trying to find other content that will work. Of course I may also rent something from iTunes.

I also appreciate the link about compatibility. I swear I searched the Apple forums and only got links for outdated threads that talked about video out, etc. I did not use the term abc player, that would have been useful!

Cheers! And thanks for the info!
