    Yes. I would read up on using the Apple adapter. Lot of people have problems getting it to work.

    Have you tried looking into the Apple TV? It will allow you to stream your iTunes movies wirelessly from your iPad to the Apple TV which is connected to your TV screen.

    Look at the link in my previous post. The Apple TV is a small unit that is connected to any TV with an HDMI connection.
    Try this link.

    Actually, on most TVs you can adjust the aspect ratio from 16:9 (default) to 4:3, which will make the screen look less "squished" when mirroring the iPad. On my Panasonic the button is just labelled Aspect. Depending on the make and model, you may need to delve into the menu.
