I have purchased a TEN Technology naviPro EX Remote Control. I have upgraded my ipod with the new apple firmware release [ipod updater 2005-03-23, software version 1.1].

With the naviPod EX receiver connected to the ipod & the apple iPod photo AV cable plugged into the naviPod EX receiver and into the AV connectors on my TV, no images show on the TV during a slideshow. If I play music with a slideshow, the music comes through the TV, but no images. To test that slideshows and the apple iPod photo AV cable work properly, I plugged the AV cable directly into the ipod and then to the TV, and the slideshow displayed images on the TV. I reconnected the naviPod EX receiver to the ipod & the apple iPod photo AV cable to the naviPod EX receiver and then into the AV connectors on my TV. Again, no images show on the TV during a slideshow. I tried this on three different TVs with the same results each time - no images during a slideshow.

I contacted TEN Technology to determine is this was a issue, given there is no indication of this issue on their website, FAQ or notices to customers. I have spoken to TEN Tech a few times about this remote and no one ever mentioned the “oh yeah, you gotta use the dock and a different cable” issue.

The reply from TEN Technology:
“This is a known issue. You have to connect the video via the iPod Photo Dock which as S-Video output also. This is because the video out the headphone jack on the iPod photo uses a 4-pin plug, not the usual 3-pin stereo plug. The naviPro receiver has only a 3-pin pass through, so will not pass through the video signal.”, you have to buy ANOTHER freakin’ cable…
