    Moving this to the Help Section for better assistance.

    Yes, you may be able to attach your iPad to your TV by using this accessory from apple by using an adapter cord to connect your iPad to your TV. This adapter is for the current iPad with the lightning connection.

    Or, using an Apple TV to airplay things from your iPad using a wifi connection.

    Hi Silverfox - welcome to the forum!

    Not sure which iPad you own, but if an older version (like my iPad 2), then the 30 pin adapter works fine also as shown below, i.e. the black connector is an HDMI cable to your TV (thus, a HDTV is needed for this adapter - other options can be use for SDTV) & the white connector is for powering the iPad - good luck!

    ...and that would be the adapter I need to buy as well for my iPad 2! I actually do need to buy one ASAP, because I have a Golf Fit Clinic I'm holding in April! Yikes...that's right behind the corner!!
