    I have an old model TV and want to connect my ipad2 to my Tv. I bought the composite av cable and hooked it up. The
    Only thing that shows up on the TV is Netflix so I am assuming it has something to do with the iPad settings. Anyone out
    There figured this out and have some help for me? Thanks!

    Anything in the video app should play on your TV, when hooked up with the AV cable.

    well first of all what do you expect to show up on the screen perhaps something like when we connected a laptop to tv where we can see anything we have on the laptop screen itself or do you have other multimedia apps such as vlc media player which contains movies and wants it to show :ipad-movie:

    I should be able to see whatever is on my iPad show up on the tv and it does not do that. We can stream some tv on our iPad that we
    Can't get on our tv so I bought the cable having been told that plug it in and whatever is on the iPad screen shows up on the TV. It
    Hasn't worked that way.

    I'm not sure the composite cable is supposed to "mirror" like the VGA or AV (HDMI) ones do.

    Can you suggest the correct cables for me to connect my iPad2 to my flat screen television ? My tv has all the standard hook ups such as multiple hdmi, composit etc.

    Check out the Apple Store, I believe there is an HDMI cable made for the iPad 2

    Sent using my iPad 2 - 16Gb - Wi-Fi

    You can get one of these and any cheap or expensive HDMI cable and you're in business.

    Although it costs around $100 can I recommend Apple TV. Bought it earlier this year. Apart from being able to stream movies, TV etc (which is why I got it) it is great for being able to hook up the iPad wirelessly (although you do need HDMI to connect the Apple TV box to your TV).

    If you buy the Apple HDMI cable, it also has a connector that plugs into your charger so you can watch movies all day without draining the battery.
