    The sync cable, as far as I know, only transfers data- not audio / video signals. So without a special cable, no.

    A/V signal=Data basically.

    In order for this to happen 2 things must be done.
    1. A Jailbreak App must be made to override the normal iTunes sync protocols etc. and output A/V data down the data line in the Sync Cable.
    2. A Windows program must be made to receive, decode and display these signals.

    As far as I know this hasn't been done yet, but it could be possible. I mean we have RemoteJoyLite for the PSP, why not something similar for iPod?

    Vnc is for remote computer acess unless I understand wrong...an I want to put what's on my iPods screen on my pc so I could play like rage on my pc using the iPod as a controller.

    There is something in Cydia called Veency. If you install that and use a vnc viewer to connect to your iPod, you will see your iPod screen on your computer in real time. So you can control your iPod and see the results on your computer screen.
    I only see two downsides to this. It's vnc, so the quality won't be that great and it will lag a bit, and I have no idea if you can rotate the screen....
