    I didn't think so but i have just found this

    Samsung TV Out Cable - 3.5mm Phones


    is says on the site that this tv out cable is compatable with the i7500 & i5700 amongst others

    can anyone confirm if this is correct or not

    Many Thanks

    Andy

    I've seen a bunch of tech demos where they had the Galaxy display echoed on a big screen, but I'm pretty sure that was using the USB port and some (adb?) software goodness. That is to say, I think you'd get pretty poor video quality from a 3.5mm jack; and in any case I don't know how the signal would get out there -- unless it's always being sent out to the headset, which seems unlikely.

    No, I think that cable will do audio, but not video. Maybe they just had the RCA-end from another part number, and decided to market it for the Galaxy, I don't know.

    i tried a cable that came with another device, the 3.5 jack had 4 bands on it which i am sure is a video cable (the other end had red, white, yellow RCA's) and i got no video. bummer. i was on holiday and it was raining. fortunately, my psp stepped in and turned out to be a great video player for the tv.

    People, give it up. i7500 is not intended for playing video on external displays.

    What does work is a screencast over USB/ADB. You capture it as a .mov and the resolution is very high and looks nice on a big screen. It isn't live but probably looks a lot better than a video out would if it could. I used DroidExplorer for that.
