    I have one. What are you trying to view on the tv? It will only output movies, photos or Netflix streaming to the tv. It won't display your home screen or Safari or games, etc.

    There are no settings needed for the iPad, but as littlebuddha says, you need to get the tv input matched up to what you plugged the cables into. Check for labels where you plugged the cables into. It will either be AV1 or AV2, etc. Then select that same source on your tv menu.

    yeah only the videos/photo's display out to the TV.

    If you have jailbroken your iPad download the TVOut2 app and it will display everything on the TV.

    Built in Video and the Netflix app will work. I haven't tried YouTube. For me, YouTube videos don't need to be displayed that big. :)

    Built in video player, web videos that open quicktime play and any apps that build in the functionality.


    If you jailbreak the iPad and install TVOut2 it will display everything even the homescreen almost like a mirror image of the ipad screen.

    I want to use ipad with netflix and put through my tv. It says on netflix that I have to "activate my netflix ready device." I'm supposed to be able to get the activation code on the ipad, but it doesn't show, even when connected to the computer as required. Anyone know how to get the activation code from the ipad?:confused:
