This is my first thread here because normally I try to answer my questions myself but this question is a bit tricky to answer.
My dad gave me his Galaxy S i9000 because he broke the display and had no intention to keep it anymore.
I've thought about fixing it but to be honest I don't think that the expenses are worth it to repair it.
After reading some threads I've found out that the phone have an av output over the headphone jack.
I've used my cable from one device and later I've bought an other one just for testing and both doesn't give out an video signal.
I've would like to use the phone as a media hub but I can't access the touchscreen.
Do you guy's have any recommendations to approach this problem?
I don't want to throw away it and do something useful with it.
Thanks for any comments on the subject!
I really appreciate any help.
The phone is rooted and I flashed Samsungs stock rom (2.3.6 or something similar).

I've bought a very similar cable (not from Nokia but I looked for i9000 tv out cable in the discription).
