    I'm sorry, but I just don't get it. What do I need to watch videos/movies from my iPad 2 on my HDTV?

    Thanks

    You might have a movie on your iPad and be at a friends. I have hdmi out on my phone, that's the only time I used it. I did enjoy angry birds on a 42 inch tv once, but it's a novelty.

    Well, you first need to get your videos onto the iPad2 - there are numerous options; I've converted 4 DVDs using software on my computer and then transferred via iTunes - there are plenty of threads on this topic, so some searching will help.

    Second, an iPad2 adapter is needed; Apple offers several - I purchased the HDMI adapter mentioned by Gabriel and shown below (left); of course, you will also need a male-male HDMI cable to connect the adapter to your HDTV (assuming that there is an HDMI input; if so, just select that connection to watch on your TV) - seems to work for me although the reviews on the Apple Store have been mixed. Good luck - :)

    Sorry about your problem - there were some negative comments about the iPad HDMI adapter on a number of sites that I reviewed w/ some not being able to make the adapter work properly - :(

    I'm assuming that you have selected the correct HDMI input option on your HDTV? If so, you might try the combo on another HDTV just to see if you particular setup might be the issue?

    Just not sure - hope others will 'chime in' to help - good luck! :)
