I think TV out on the N95 is a really cool feature

N95 TV out gersbo.dkSince getting a Nokia N95 I have been wanting to blog about its TV out function. To me, this feature is simply freaking awesome and very useful.

I had some initial problems plugging my N95 into my old B&O TV set. This TV does not have a phono input (RCA) that fits the N95 cable's jack plug.

Read on and see, how I solved that problem…

If you know a little about the N95 - or have one yourself - you are probably aware how the 3.5″ headphone input doubles as a TV out. Using the included cable (CA-75U), the N95 can be plugged into a regular TV set and use the TV as an external monitor.

As shown in the image to the left, the easiest way to connect the phone to a TV is to simply plug in the CA-75U cable's three plugs (yellow: composite video;N95 TV out phono-to-scart connector gersbo.dk red: stereo right; white: stereo left).

But what if the TV does not have the appropriate inputs? The ones that fit the RCA phono jack plugs of the N95 cable?

Well, our vintage Bang & Olufsen Beovision LS 5500 sure did not have them (but do provide us with killer sound and image!). The solution turned out to be a piece of gear that is originally part of an ALDI cable set for hooking up a computer with a TV.

The phono-to-SCART connector piece, shown in image above, came as part of this cable set and using that as a go-between everything is hunky-dory! The connector piece is also equipped with a S-VHS input in case anyone is interested…

Be aware that you are not restricted to using TV out for just playing back media you have recorded yourself.

Why not throw a few DivX movies onto the memory card and play them on a TV set using TV out and the free DivXPlayer?

Way to go! Try this with an iPhone!
