Slideshows from an iPod nano

Q: I have a new iPod nano and bought an RCA AV cable (specific for iPods) so that I could do slide shows on my TV.

However, I just can’t make it work.

Could you please tell me the procedure to follow? My TV is about 5 years old – could this be a factor? Thanks!

A: Unfortunately, TV output is one of several features Apple has reserved for only its full-size iPods: even though the iPod nano has a color screen on which it can display photo slideshows, it simply doesn’t have the capability (whether hardware or software) to output them to a television.
