    I had this problem with my iBook 500. If you're referring to the AV cable that goes into the headphone port, try this:

    Plug in the cable to the iBook & connect to the TV.

    Log out

    Log back in and it should be recognized

    Good luck. Check my topic in Apple's iBook Discussions on this topic. There are some other points there.

    Yep, it's a bug.

    i've tired logout/in before, sometimes it works, sometimes not... however, i've noticed when i'm pluggin in the power connector after the av cable.... well, sounds pretty stupid, but it works... at least the last 2 times i've tired.

    i guess i'll have to wait for panther... but i've heard that the new ibooks don't have this av connector any more... so is this bug ever going to be removed?
