ipod movies on sony bravia lcd tv

Is it possible to download movies from iTunes onto my iPod and then somehow plug the iPod into my tv to view them? We've gotten the tv to be a monitor for our computer, but can't figure out the iPod thing. It will do iPod music through the tv speakers, but no picture with movies. Maybe wrong cable? Thanks for any assistance.

Most tvs have a USB socket on them, I assume that's what it's for.

Otherwise, I have a speaker system for my iPod that has a composite video out jack, you could try that.

If your computer is already connected to the TV, why do need to connect your iPod? Isn't everything that is in your iPod already in iTunes in your computer.


I bought an apple ipod dock and a component av cable from the apple store. voila! easy, and only one cord since i have a usb port on my tv and didn't need an additional power cord.
