    Just "marking" my spot for answers to this question, cause I'd like to know also. I am running a jailbroken iPad1, with iOS 4.2.1 and I have DisplayOut. To make my life easier (and avoid my "girly" confusion about cords and things :D), I'd like to get this HDMI cable 'cause then all I'd have to do is plug it in to my HDTV.

    So, Dr. Gee, you are saying this new HDMI cable will not work with a jailbroken iPad1 running DisplayOut?

    Thanks to addiosamigo for posting what I was just going to...

    The HDMI cable works with iPad 1. The only part not working is the mirroring feature, but since that is done by Displayout, the cable should work just fine.

    is that official then...? I would like to know before spending 50bones on the hdmi adapter.
    Picked up a 25ft hdmi cable on amazon for under 10$. Actually picked up 2.

    According to Mtnmedic in this thread:
    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-gene...display-apps-first-gen-ipad-no-jailbreak.html

    It will work natively with some apps on the ipad1....but I guess if you want it to work for all apps then displayout is the way to go....apparently.

    HDMI connector

    I just received my HDMI connector and it works on my iPad1, iOS4.3(no jailbreak). It only works for those programs that specifically allow for Video out but on those it does work. I watched the movie "Avatar" on my 28" Monitor and video and audio came thru fine. I was a little bummed that it did not output HD video but maybe I'm missing a setting somewhere?

    Also, word of warning, displayout wont install from Cydia on 4.3 yet due to an os version dependency check.

    Great to hear! Can I assume TV2out is, essentially, the same as DisplayOut (for this purpose)?

    One question, because hardware tends to make me break out in hives (I'm not scared by computers/software - but hand me a cable or a remote ... eeeeek! :D):

    What kind of cable did you get to hook it up to your TV?

    It's just that I'm so confused looking at all the cable selections on the Apple web site...

    Thanks.
