    Dunno about that cable. My understanding is the pins on the 3.5mm jack aren't standardised.

    I have a Nokia cable I bought off Ebay which works fine.

    Yes, this cable will work fine :) (as any other 3.5mm <-> 3RCA)

    +1 for getting the Nokia cables, dirt cheap and they work whereas many others don't.

    Which Nokia cables are these? Has anybody got a model number and description from Nokia?

    Cheers

    Why bother with Nokia cables only? I bought a cheap cable for less than 2 euro advertised as a camcorder compatible and it works fine ;)

    Well why bother, indeed. I don't care who makes the cable, but want to know which one to buy! I exclude the expensive ones because cables are simply cables. Cheap to make.

    Please tell me which cable you bought (name model etc.,) so that I may buy one. People seem to think that cable in the URL I posted would not work.

    If I were U, I would've bought this cable right away :) It seems a high quality product. Or I would go to the nearest tech store and buy whatever 3.5mm <-> 3 RCA my eyes see - preferably not very expensive. The one in your link looks excellent!

    Oh, and one other thing - all audio/video cables are standardized, so no worry if a cable will work, as long as it is not a 5 cent china crap (you can tell if it is, because they smell bad and are ugly with cheep looking jacks :) ).

    Pin outs are here

    4 pin 3.5mm (2.5mm) plug connector diagram and applications @ pinouts.ru

    Samsung Galaxy i9000 headset pinout and wiring @ pinoutsguide.com

    There is an inconclusive thread here:
    http://android.modaco.com/content/samsung-galaxy-s-s-modaco-com/314092/trouble-with-the-3-5-tv-out/

    ...But the Nokia thread does explain why:
    http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=473186

    If you are disinclined to click the link then I have put it here:
    The N900 using a camcorder style A/V cable (3.5mm to RCA white/red/yellow) will not work, because the N900 uses a different pin of the 3.5mm jack for "ground" than is used by almost every other manufacturer.

    I have three different 3.5mm cables and none of them work! I can get sound but only distorted picture.

    3.5mm cables are definitely NOT standard!

    I first bought a standard 3.5mm to 3xRCA in a local electronic shop.
    It didn't work (sound only, no picture).
    I then bought a Nokia CA-75U on ebay. Works. But I have to play a bit with the plug or I get disturbing sounds.
