I asked at my local Tsann Kuen today for the Apple iPod AV Cable for connecting my 30GB video iPod to my TV so I could watch the next season of Lost. They don’t have it. They do have a generic AV cable that looks like it should do the trick, but they said bu xing. What will happen if I just plug in the non-Apple one? Will it work at all, or is there a danger of frying my iPod? I’m in Hualien, and I don’t think there is an Apple dealer here. What’s my options? Wait until my next trip to Taipei? Do the Apple stores have them there?
A bit off topic, but this whole iPod experience has been a little less satisfactory than I had hoped. I spent forever trying to be able to purchase from the store, because of their silliness with selling things to you if you are outside of The U.S. and/or your credit card has a non-U.S. address. I think I’ve finally got a Paypal account set up. I’ve put my Pimsleur lessons on my iPod, but cannot figure out where to put them all together to access them and not have them play when I just want to play a music shuffle. Should I try to put them under the audiobooks category? The whole usability thing between iPod, iTunes, iMusic, and now Paypal is extremely time consuming and frustrating, IMHO. I thought it all would have been smoother. It took way too long to figure out how to turn the volume down on my iPod, for God’s sakes. Anyway, how about that AV Cable? Anybody with some helpful info?
