    Hi everyone,

    I just got my iPad 2 and I've been looking for an AV out option. I'm thinking either the standard AV cords or VGA. I'm wondering, is the iPad 2 compatible with the iPad 1, or even iPod/iPhone video accessories?

    In particular, I'm looking at these guys: $28.80 - Camera Connection Kit Micro SD/SD Card Reader with AV Cable for iPad - White - Cables & Adaptors

    $2.98 - Retractable Composite AV Cable for iPod - Cables & Adaptors

    $10.12 - AV Output + USB Data Charging Adapter with Cables and Remote for All iPod/iPhone/iPhone 3G - Cables & Adaptors

    Alternatively, does anyone know of aftermarket video out products that were specifically designed for the iPad 2?

    Sure, but does that mean that iPad 1 AV accessories won't work?

    All iPad1 A/V accessories work with the iPad2 but not necessarily the other way around.
