    I am wanting to use an iPad as an in dash screen for a PS3. I can't believe that I can stream video wirelessly to an iPad Through wifi but I can't directly connect a device with an AV cable. I have found a lot of people wanting to use an iPad as a primary monitor and I figure there's money to be made by writing an app that would allow this. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't want a different screen. I want to use an iPad as a screen for my ps3.

    There are no video-in pins on the iPad's conector. You would have to use a USB converter, the Camera Connection Kit, and write your own USB to video interface, which means it would be a jailbreak only app. Probably half a dozen other little obsticals to ovecome.

    But if you can do it I'm sure it would be a very popular app.

    Select Wireless as your connection method and press right on the directional pad to continue.

    If that were to work you'd need an app on the iPad to capture the streamed images.
