DIY iPod TV video cable

I received a 30gb video iPod last fall, and I've quickly filled it with hundreds of songs and dozens of videos. I knew it had the capability to send the video output to a TV, but I didn't want to spend $20 on Apple's proprietary cable.

I already had a cable that should work, but matching my cable colors to their corresponding RCA input jacks on the TV didn't produce a picture. I decided to try other combinations of the colors to see if that might work, and sure enough....

Below are the pairings of cable color with video/TV RCA input:
Yellow out --> White in
White out --> Red in
Red out --> Yellow in
