Web to TV?
Hi, new here. We had to buy an iPad as backup to our dead PC.
What I want to know precisely is if I can watch live web content posted on a sports webpage on my TV using the iPad and the Apple TV module.
I see Netflix/YouTube, etc on the Apple sight mentioned but nothing about web content exactly.
In particularly I want to watch the live streaming races on the web (browser) offered through my MotoGP subscription (that I now watch on the PC)on my TV.
What gear do I need?
You need no gear at all. When a live stream such as music or video starts in Safari, (except those in Flash) just tap the screen and an AirPlay icon pops up. Tap it and select AppleTV. The display switches to your HDTV set.
...wow, that would be great, so all I need to buy is an AppleTV box?
How would I know if the MotoGP streaming is Flash or not?
Try running it from Safari on the iPad:). If it runs on the iPad, you should the option to output to ATV if/when the iPad detects it on the wireless network. You won't know for sure until you actually have ATV but I think that this should be a reliable indicator.

For the moment that seems to be Safari, for (non Flash) video output (not the entire web page), Photos (still images only, not video camera files) and I assume Videos, which I have not tested.
