just a simple question, I'm sure you tried, but I have the tv out and the color coding was wrong with my tv in. I think I had white as the video and red and yellow as the audio.

So, you're saying to switch white and yellow?! Yellow is video, white is 'left channel' audio and red is 'right channel' audio. I'm not sure that it'd be recorded in stereo if you were to play back videos taken from your phone, but still..

oh well i got it working it turned out after lots of playing around with the wires that the video out pin is supose to be ground and the ground is supose to be video atlest that was with my cable all cables are a bit diffrent but from what i learned from experimenting from the tip down it goes "left audio, right audio, ground , video" so if anyone wants to use that they can now have a nice video out for the phone which i think is really cool feature... :)

Um, where did you find the cable to make it work, because my TV image looks all scrambled and messed up like it doesnt work..... P.S. i bought another cable to see if that was the issue, and i'm waiting for it to arrive via mail... i'll let you know if that was the issue (bad cable).

EDIT: While waiting for my new phone cable, I decided to cut up the old one and see if I could make it work. Seeing has how the ground is switched for this model/cable I cut open yellow (video) white (left audio) and red (right audio) and then switched the wires. Once wrapping back up in elec. tape I plugged everything in and POOF! it worked.. Everything works great to my tv.

If anyone would like to save a few bucks by not buying a new cable I could post how to do this...

Ah yes I had this problem too early on. The SCH-I920 is picky! I promise you its simply a wrong cable even though the seller swears it will work on an I8000 or I920. If Verizon sells the AV cable thats the one you want. Spend the $20 and don't waste any time on it.

I bought several cables before I ended up cutting mine apart. I switched wires around until it worked. Oh well.

The thing is, Verizon doesn't sell the cables. They swear to me that there's no available option and there never was. I've even shown them my phone when I plug in a pair of headphones, and show them the option, but they tell me that's just for audio only. I have also contacted VZW corporate and they could not find anything on an a/v set for i920. Yes, I have purchase a cable (eBay), and then spliced it together myself to make it work. sure it's not perfect but the A/V is fine.
