    iPad to TV....what will play?

    We have an iPad1 running 4.3.2. I'd like to hook the iPad up to the TV so we can watch video from various TV apps like the ABC and NBC apps. Will this work? I've seen some vids on youtube, but they indicate that if you hook your iPad up to the TV via cables, you can only play youtube vids or movies you have on the iPad. Is that the case? If so, would I be able to play TV apps and stream via apple TV?

    iOS 5 in a few days, do everything.

    jailbreak, do whatever you want.

    So with iOS5 on my iPad1 I'll be able to stream any video to my TV? Will that be via a cable or apple TV....or both?

    see everything on your tv via apple tv, iPad 1 hdmi might get support for iOS 5, not sure yet.....but why would you wanna be cabled to your tv.

    this video is prob an iOS 5 beta, full release should be better.

    a newer video....and a mention about hdmi doing fullscreen.
    im not worried about fullscreen, cause i am jailbroken, and i have options using tweaks to apply fullscreen. Just the need of iOS 5 getting a jailbreak.

    Thanks Poser. Fingers crossed that iOS 5 will take care of it.

    Well, looks like iOS5 wasn't the magic bullet. Oh well.

    But, I stumbled across this: How to Enable Multitasking Gestures and Display Mirroring on the iPad 1 (Without Jailbreaking)

    Has anyone tried this? It shows the gestures; but I don't see how to do the mirroring.

    Yes, we've had a thread on it on the forum for quite a while:

    Unfortunately this new method does NOT enable AirPlay Mirroring as indicated, but Multitasking Gestures on the original iPad work perfectly.

    Cool, thanks for the link.

    Is jailbreaking still the only option for mirroring with the Ipad1?
