    i have an iphone 4 and an ipad 2. i have a cable that allows me to connect my iphone 4 to my television and play movies to the tv. for some reason, that cable will not work on my ipad 2. do i need a special cable for the ipad or am i missing something more obvious ?

    Tom has the answer. You need Apples AV digital adaptor and an hdmi cable. Simples.

    You need a player that supports the video out option like Ace Player and you need to enable it (several of the video player apps don't support video out). You don't need the hdmi kit unless you want to mirror your iPad screen to the TV.

    Anyone know how much that is? Do you think that cable is worth it or a bit worthless? since iPad already has a huge screen to be shared.

    i have a generic composite cable that works fine on both ip4 and ip2 bought from auction site for £6

    i'd wonder is there a device issue, perhaps try a reset on it?

    I use the Apple Composite AV Cable as well and it works great, I know when I first tried to watch anything from my Iphone4 I was given the option to select TV. maybe that is the problem?
