    Hello everyone, I am a new iPad user. I want to connect my iPad with our TV. By the way our TV is not an apple TV. It's a LG. So is it possible. And if so can any one describe its every step. I am not really good with gadget and I don't want to blow up either. Thanks in advance.

    If its a ipad 1 - ipad 3, you need a HDMI cable, and apple digital AV adapter, and the USB - 30 pin connector cable: plug the HDMI cable into the tv, then plug the other end of the lead into the AV adapter. Then plug the socket charger. ( you got with your ipad) into the wall, Plug in your 30 pin connecter ( just like your going to charge it) then you plug the 30 pin end into the the AV adapter, then plug the AV adapter into your ipad, then turn the tv on

    Can you please expand on Apple TV? Not familiar.......looked on Apples website but not a lot of detail.
    How does it connect from your iPad to the "box".............is it Bluetooth?

    Sounds like something I might want to invest in.

    Thanks....

    It is wireless from the iPad to the Apple TV, then I connect with an HDMI lead.

    If you want to save a little money then check the Apple refurb store at Apple.com, they often have Apple TV's at 15% discount.

    One of the keys to success with Apple TV is to have good WiFi service. If you have slow WiFi then you will have problems with lag when projecting video and games from your iPad's screen to your TV's screen wirelessly.

    I have decent speed and no such issue. The only thing that I feel that Android tablets do better (in my opinion) is that they automatically fill the screen of your TV perfectly since there are in wide screen format whereas the iPad being 4X3 will leave a good chunk of your screen blank on both sides. Yes you can zoom but you'll be losing some quality and or picture off the top of the screen. This does not happen with videos as they play perfectly.

    The only fix for this is an app in the jailbreak community which works wonders and allows for all your games, internet, or whatever else you desire to put on the big screen to fit perfectly as well.

    Good information...
    I get consistent 30+ Mbps bandwidth with 7 devices on the same network, so I should be good to go.
    Thanks...

    That is great news, I have two, not that I really need two as its small enough to carry between TV sets, but whilst I'm not using it all day long I do get plenty of use out of them......make sure that you download Apples Remote App https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/remote/id284417350?mt=8 as it will make using the Apple TV easier especially when searching, etc.

    You are going to love the Apple TV if you need to do anything with your iPad on your TV. It is a great device. It can stream your music, videos from any device connected running iTunes as well as AirPlay and screen mirroring from your iOS devices. We use it most for sharing photos, slideshows and iMovie movies from vacation photos and videos. Of course, watching HD quality movies from iTunes isn't too shabby either. Look in the app store for the Apple TV remote app for the iPad so you can control the AppleTV from your iPad screen.

    Got it marked for download..........thanks.

    You guys know how this works if you have 2 iPads running at the same time?
    The first one with access to Apple TV locks out the 2nd one?
    Don't want my wife overriding my Apple TV. :D

    I'm pumped......Having a blast with the iPad 4 and all you can do. Loads of fun to be had. :thumbs:

    I use remote on my iPad and iPhone to control iTunes. I assume it will work the same way on AppleTV. Both devices work interchangeably. Setting up an "up next" playlist on the iPad results in the playlist being visible on the iPhone, where tracks can be added.
