A/V-in can be fussy depending on the brand of DVD player. What's worked for me is buying 3 female-female RCA adapters (a buck or so over at Target), and then connecting two 1/8"-to-RCA cables at the RCA part (iPod's red-out to DVD's yellow-in, etc).

You can also pretty easily solder up a cable that does the cross wiring directly or create a converter like the one here: http://www.oreillynet.com/mac/blog/2006/03/create_an_ipod_video_converter.html to use with a straight 1/8th to 1/8th" cable (if you can find one. they're not that widely used)
