    I think the iPad2 is easier but is there a 3rd party item that allows a movie on an iPad to be played on a projector with audio and video with minimal hassles?

    You can use the optional HDMI connector to connect the iPad to a projector with a suitable interface. On an iPad2 the screen is 'mirrored' to the HDMI connector, though you'll see Members have had issues with the format of the display and the projected image.

    I have just got a 3M Mpro 120 mini projectors, comes with with composite (yellow/red/white) connections which i connect to my Ipad AV cable. Use 'Display out' on the Ipad and you have movies on the projector.

    You can get the Mpro 120 relatively cheap for second hand on ebay, its a great little device

    It all depends on the inputs that you have on your projector. Apple adapters for most of the common video transfer cables, you just have to get the correct one for you projector.

    I use the HDMI adapter, but they also have a VGA adapter and a component video adapter as well.
