Jensen issue with ipod video

We just received our 312-BHX. When I connect my iPhone 4 to the Built in Jenson entertainment system and try and play a video I get the following on screen message: "hdmi unsupport ipod video ,please change to cvbs"

What is cvbs? And how do I switch to it to watch downloaded videos on my iPod?

Yes, it has the logo and came with an iPod connector.

If it is this one.
AWM975 - JENSEN AM/FM/CD/DVD/USB/WB/iPOD Ready Wallmount Stereo with HDMI Video Output

It says it supports full audio control and charging which would lead me to believe it will not play video.

You will need to find an adapter for you Ipod or what ever apple device to convert the output to composite with L/R audio as well.

I had the same message when I was first playing with my iPhone hooked up to the Jensen. I "solved" the problem by changing the input to av1. Just grab your remote, hit source and the highlight and select av1. It worked for me.

I represent ASA Electronics, the producer of the JENSEN brand of televisions, stereos, and speakers, the Voyager brand of observation monitors and cameras and Advent appliances. At ASA, we strive to provide excellent customer service and product satisfaction and would like to offer some assistance in this matter.

“CVBS” refers to Composite Video signal. The AWM975 cannot pass iPod video through the protected HDMI output. You will need to use a Composite Video cable between the AV connection (Yellow RCA Video Out) on the rear of the stereo connected to the TV’s AV1/AV2, etc. to pass the video from the iPhone to the TV.

An alternate solution is to use the Apple TV device, which connects to the HDMI input on the TV and wirelessly streams the video from your iPhone or iPad device to the TV. These can be found through Apple or Apple resellers.

Please let me know if I can assist further.
