    Ipad2 as a Second Monitor?

    Now i know about Maxivista using wifi to act as a 2nd monitor to pc. I bought it and use it but i find the lag very annoying. I was wondering if there is a method using the hdmi adapter cable for the ipad2 and a jailbreak app that could do this?

    Anyone?

    Cheers

    I use AirDisplay. Very fast and works well.
    It is impossible with the HDMI connector, it is made for video out, not video in.

    Maybe Airdisplay is better than Maxivista?

    I just know that AirDisplay uses compression, so it has almost no noticeable delay with a decent wireless router.
