If you're looking for the cheapest way to get video off your iPhone or iPod and onto your TV, the Scosche showTIME cable could be just the thing.

It's a nice-looking cable with a heavy-gauge feel, high-end tapered connectors, and a generous 6-foot length. The cable uses a composite-video connection, however, so keep your video quality expectations low. Also, don't get any funny ideas about running iPhone games and Apps to your TV, because this is only going to output videos (cue sad trombone).
