    I was interested specifically if anyone has experience using their iPad2 to view movies from Amazon Instant viewing & sending it to their HD TV.

    Did the picture fill the entire screen? Was it easy? How was the picture quality? Did you use Apple TV or HDMI directly from iPad2 to TV?

    I am really interested in replacing Netflix with this. Any pros or cons from your experience?

    Thanks all that reply.

    I think you may want to double check to see whether Flash is required to use Amazon's service, before you dump Netflix.

    I thought this was an issue a while back when I looked at what Amazon was offering. If this is still the case, then I do not think that you would be able to use your iPad 2.

    Agh! The flash issue again! One of iPads biggest weaknesses.

    That's correct, I'm looking at the system requirements now and under browser plug-ins: The most recent versions of JavaScript and Adobe Flash Player.

    You could download the Playon app by which you can access amazon vod . There is a 10 day free trial for Playon and you can sign up for around $5 a month, I think.

    True, but I don't think PlayOn supports either HD or 5.1, basically negating using it for viewing on an HDTV system, IMO. I only use it for viewing content on my phone and/or iPad.

    YMMV if you don't care (I use a PS3 which does 1080p/5.1 from some titles on Netflix, so won't give that up).
