    Hi guys, I ordered myself a iphone 4 - tv cable last night as I've subscribed to the sky sports TV app and would much prefer to watch it on a TV screen size rather than iphone screen.

    Does anyone know if the cable supports this app? Apparently the cables only support certain apps, although i have read that it's possible to jailbreak iphone to give complete mirroring, as in what you see on iphone is shown exactly on TV screen.
    thanks :)

    Not a chance, I'm afraid. I don't know whether there's a JB Cydia App or mod that allows you to mirror the iPhone screen, but certainly not on a
    bog-standard iPhone 4.

    It's the difference between £4.99 and £50+...

    The other issue is Sky now blocking live TV access via Sky Go on jailbroken phones.

    That's great but the app now detects your iPhone is jailbroken and won't open.

    Erm... I don't think the OP has Sky at home so surely he won't be able to run Sky Sports TV through Sky Go?

    Sorry didn't realise he was on about the sky sports app and not sky go. Maybe there is a similar work around?

    Can you not get sky installed in your room and you pay?

    Going slightly OT there is plenty of half price 12 months deals going with sky so you won't pay that much just a thought :)

    I tried the Sky Sports App via the Av adapter. Sound is great but the picture is blocked by the App. I wanted to be able to take the Andy Murray tennis match to let my Mum watch on her tv. No luck :(
