Composite AV Cable for iPhone 5
Prior to "upgrading" to an iPhone 5, I was able to use an Apple composite AV cable to connect my iPhone to my automobile's indash entertainment system and play movies on the ceiling mounted screen. I tried using my old compositive AV cable with a lightning adapter, but only sound comes through....no video. I see nothing available on the Apple website, and nothing in stores, that will send video from the iPhone to a composite cable (the input to the DVD player has three chords, one yellow, one red and one white). I'm guessing this has something to do with digital outputfrom the iPhone. Please let me know if there is a work around. Right now, we are using old iPods we have to show movies, but I'm a little surprised that the newer iPhones lack this functionality.

I'm having the same exact issue. I'm assuming (yet to try) that if you use a lightning to HDMI, then HDMI to composite, that should do it.
