Ask Max: iPod Video Options

Asked on 09/16/2008:

I just want to know before buying an iPod, which one delivers digital video. I have TV with HDMI, can I watch video through the iPod in HDMI or digital mode.


No iPod provides digital video out. The video output of an iPod Classic, iPod Nano, or™>iPod Touch are analog video. You can however use the component AV cable to connect these iPods to the component connections on your HDTV. Although this is a HD connection, the iPods do not deliver true HD video. Also it is not digital and will not look great on a larger TV. The better option for you would be an Apple TV, which is all-digital, through its HDMI port. Take a look at the Apple TV for a digital iTunes connection to your television.
