    We have an iPad1 running 4.3.2. I'd like to hook the iPad up to the TV so we can watch video from various TV apps like the ABC and NBC apps. Will this work? I've seen some vids on youtube, but they indicate that if you hook your iPad up to the TV via cables, you can only play youtube vids or movies you have on the iPad. Is that the case? If so, would I be able to play TV apps and stream via apple TV?

    So with iOS5 on my iPad1 I'll be able to stream any video to my TV? Will that be via a cable or apple TV....or both?

    see everything on your tv via apple tv, iPad 1 hdmi might get support for iOS 5, not sure yet.....but why would you wanna be cabled to your tv.

    this video is prob an iOS 5 beta, full release should be better.

    a newer video....and a mention about hdmi doing fullscreen.
    im not worried about fullscreen, cause i am jailbroken, and i have options using tweaks to apply fullscreen. Just the need of iOS 5 getting a jailbreak.

    Thanks Poser. Fingers crossed that iOS 5 will take care of it.

    Yes, we've had a thread on it on the forum for quite a while:

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-gene...ultitasking-gestures-ipad-1-a.html#post177728

    Unfortunately this new method does NOT enable AirPlay Mirroring as indicated, but Multitasking Gestures on the original iPad work perfectly.

    Cool, thanks for the link.

    Is jailbreaking still the only option for mirroring with the Ipad1?

    I believe that's the case. FWIW I've read that the reason that Apple didn't enable AirPlay Mirroring on the original iPad was due to the concern about processing power. As you're probably aware, the original iPad has an A4 processor and the iPad 2 has the newer A5 processor. That's not to say it wouldn't work on the original iPad, but my WAG is that they decided it might not be up to their standards, introducing too much lag, etc. Hard to say.

    Normal apps with AirPlay still work great on the original iPad though, but I'd also like to see how AirPlay Mirroring would work.

    Bummer...is what it is though. I'd love to mirror so we could use the various TV apps. We have a weekend place with ultra basic cable. Firing up the iPad to watch a show would have come in handy.

    Wondering if I should make the leap and jailbreak this. I know nothing about it.

    There are a lot of folks here that can help if you want to jailbreak. I'd just post your question(s) and see what advice you get.

    I installed "http://www.redmondpie.com/enable-video-mirroring-and-multitasking-gestures-on-ipad-1-running-ios-5-without-jailbreaking-video/" on my iPad1 per the instructions--went w/o a hitch. The mirroring does seem to work. Oddly, HBOGo doesn't mirror for me, though. ABC works fine and the few apps I tried did too. The mirroring isn't explicit in the download instructions but work fine anyway. BTW I am not jailbroken.

    I think you're confusing AirPlay with AirPlay Mirroring. True AirPlay Mirroring means that everything on the iPad's screen is shown on the TV via WiFi and an Apple TV2 running iOS 4.4 or above.

    We've had those instruction on the forum for a short while now... http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-gene...ultitasking-gestures-ipad-1-a.html#post177728

    I've used them and although the Multitasking Gestures work perfectly on the original iPad, AirPlay Mirroring does not...and based on numerous comments here and elsewhere, the original LifeHacker article and video are incorrect with respect to AirPlay Mirroring being enabled on the original iPad using the redns0w non-jailbreaking "hack".

    True AirPlay Mirroring controls look like this...

    You are right, I got the 2 confused. One of these days I will understand more about 'i" stuff (I'm a Windows guy). I was referring to connecting my iPad1 to a HDTV via the Apple HDMI/USB connector.

    At least there's that option. I'm really hoping they'll add Mirroring to the original iPad in the future. They've done things like that before so it wouldn't be surprising. Glad the gestures are working though...I had really gotten used to them!
