True.. Great phone! I'm sorry to bother you with this question, but I got a problem with my N8 and I can't find the solution anywhere, so I was hoping you could help my out!

Since I updated from Anna to Belle, I can't put my phone on TV-out. If I change my settings to TV-out, the phone sees my cable as headphones. I read a lot of other stories about this problem..

Do you know what to do, what it is, or where I could find help?
