I remember hearing the colors might be mismatched. Try different combination of the color cables in the slots you know what im sayin? uhh or plug it in hard.
considering everything else wrong with the vibrant wouldn't surprise me that your tv out doesn't work.

Red cable into the yellow jack? Umm no. The TV out is over RCA cables(ie one white, one red, one yellow) The red and white are audio and the yellow is video. There is a reason why they come colored, they are supposed to match.

Well I bought a cheap pair of generic Zune A/V wires on Amazon. If they work, I'll let you know the link so you guys can get TV out for less than 5 bucks shipped.

I tried connecting my phone to couple of TVs and both showed me message saying Can't show TV Out is not supported while application is running or something like that. I could hear sound right but no video.

Any idea?

if you get the OEM microsoft zune A/V cables, the colors red to red, yellow to yellow and white to white match up. So thats a bonus!

So what can Vibrant show on TV? Are you saying, I can see other movies on TV but just not Avatar?

Yup, you can use other video files just not avatar since it is drm locked to the phone. Last night for example I hooked the phone to a projector and watched zombieland, while wirelessly transmitting the audio to my home theater system.

An abuse of technology sure but it was pretty neat.

Also you can use the video out for surfing the net on your tv and gaming even. Just not the Sims game that is included. But Raging Thunder worked great, as did replica island.

I'm wondering how well this will work, and if it will allow more apps to be run on a TV, not to mention HD quality.

Yup that bluetooth gateway rocks. I've had it for a couple years and it is too handy. I generally just pair to it and stream my music from my phone to it. It gives people who don't understand the setup the impression that you phone is just the worlds coolest remote. Which I guess in a way it is.

Sorta.

THEORETICALLY (emphasis) it should allow some DRM stuff to be displayed since HDMI supports DRM (Analogue, which is what the current TV-Out uses, does not, hence it doesn't show up). I would imagine that at least some of the $50(!!!) they plan to charge will involve DRM support.

If you trim back the molded plastic on the cables' stereo plug connector you will probably get a good full seating of the connector ... that is what i did with my cable ...

Had the same issue as you ...

This thread seems old already, but it came up as one of the first hits in my search. I'll post the fix on this thread anyways to help others who may find this with the same garbled screen while doing everything right.

It seems like some iPOD compatible RCA cables have the Ground and the VIDEO (Yellow) wire swapped. or perhaps some other pin-out arrangement.
You can confirm this if you pull out the RCA cable out of socket just enough so you see the first ring, so one of hte pins is not touching and then everything lines up but you are actually missing the RED audio channel.
Here is the pinout for the samsung galaxy s i9000. you can confirm your cable easily with a simple multi-meter test. (you'd think they would make these cables standard pin-outs)
SAMSUNG GALAXY S I9000 PINOUT
(starting with pin#1 at the tip of the 3.5mm)
Code:
PIN-1 Tip: Audio Left 
PIN-2 Ring1: Audio Right 
PIN-3 Ring2: Video 
PIN-4 Sleeve: GROUND

(Sorry my first post, couldn't post links. But trying to help others with the same problem i am having)
