Stereo cables allow you to connect your iPod Touch to a TV to listen to music through your television's speakers. You can connect an iPod Touch to any device with RCA jacks. RCA jacks are the audio ports on your TV. Typically, they are colour coded red and white. Connecting an iPod Touch to a TV will produce louder audio than will your iPod speakers or earbuds.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Plug the red connector of the stereo cable into the right audio input jack of your TV. The left audio input jack on most TVs is colour-coded red to match AV cables.

  2. 2

    Plug the white connector of the stereo cable into the left audio input jack of your TV. The left audio input jack on most TVs is colour-coded white to match AV cables.

  3. 3

    Insert the connector on the other end of the stereo cable into the line-out port on the top of your iPod Touch. The line-out port of the iPod Touch is where you normally connect the iPod Touch earbuds.

    Power on your TV. Turn the volume control all the way down.

    Change the TV to the proper input channel. The proper input channel will correspond to the iPod audio jack connection. For example, if you connected the iPod stereo cable to the "Input 1" audio jacks of your TV, turn the TV to the "Input 1" channel.

  6. 6

    Tap the "iPod" icon on your iTouch home screen. Tap a song to begin playing music.

    Use the on-screen controls to turn up the volume on the iPod output. Slowly turn up the volume of the TV until it reaches the desired level.
