I rented films on Apple tv, have them in my iTunes, purchased Apple Composit AV cable, hooked up, iPhone 4, 6.1.2 w/cable - yellow to yellow, red to red, wht to wht, pressed on remote AV button, accessed movies in iTunes, pressed view, but doesn't work. What could I be doing wrong ?

Hello chas_m,
Don't mean to be flip, but what's the importance ? A1218 (I'm in Europe). The films were already purchased, saved on iTunes and can be viewed via MacPro, iPad or iPhone. My issue is transfer to tv via cable. I have photos of tv, cable and remote, if that helps.
Thanks Dee

Knowing what Apple TV model (there have been at least three versions, all quite different) is a starting point for deciphering what might be wrong. I should have guessed from your mention of composite cables that you were using the outdated original model.

I don't believe the iPhone 4 running 6.1.2 is going to work with an Apple TV that outdated. But since I could be wrong, info on the TV model you're trying to hook to would also be helpful.

I suspect the "remote AV" button you're talking about is the AirPlay icon -- which doesn't apply to that Apple TV model.

Am "assuming" from all of that - you rented a movie and downloaded it to iTunes on your computer.

You then connected a cable from your iPhone to the TV.

Then went into iTunes on your computer (which is not connected to the TV) and pressed play?

...
Have you transferred the movies to the iPhone?
And then opened "Videos" on your iPhone and pressed play?


(And, if you do have a HDTV, they're not going to look very good via a composite cable.)

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Thanks again for your time.
I hooked my Mac OSX pro book version 10.7.5 up to the television.
My films are in iTunes and can be played on computer. I still don't understand why it would matter what Apple tv we have. The computer is hooked up to the tv and the transfer is not happening.

bobtomay,
I connected computer to tv, went to iTunes store, see rentals, but they don't transfer to tv.
And to answer your other question, yes, I transferred 1 movie to 'videos' on my iPhone and pressed play.
I'm not near the television now, so I'll have to continue this next weekend, when I try again. Thanks for your help.
QUOTE Thanks
