    1) You can get the Apple Digital AV adapter and an HDMI cable or
    2) Get an Apple TV.

    Since you gave no mention of which iPad you have, one cannot know which adapter you need. iPad 4, iPad mini, and iPad Air, and iPad mini with Retina Display all need the lightning version of the AV adapter.

    In most cases, a 30pin/lightning to HDMI will work for mirroring. Haven't tried it on iOS 7 yet, but the results should be similar or the same. Alternatively, if you're looking to stream from your computer or any iOS device to your TV, you can also invest in an AppleTV so you can AirPlay or access your media on your iOS device, windows PC or Mac

    Edit: beaten to the punch by AQ_OC :p

    Also, checkout this THREAD for some pics of the cable setup (in my case HDMI adapter to an iPad 2) - you might want to provide more information on your iPad model, iOS installed, and type of TV (a HDTV w/ HDMI inputs is strongly recommended). Dave :)

    Very well said, but some apps won't allow you 2 mirror full screen. I know HBO Go let's you but A&E does not. I think Exfinity will let you though as well.

    Yes. I have several TV apps (Canadian) and most don't permit full screen. The one that does is National Film Board.

    I'll be shopping for a new TV soon.

    What feature/capability should I look for regarding sending stuff from my Air to the TV? Like pictures, movies, etc....is it Airplay?

    iPad Air 32Gb Wi-Fi; 17" MacBook Pro; 24" iMac; iPhone 4; iPod Nano 6th Gen; iPod Shuffle; Apple TV 2
