    Or control an iPad from another iPad? I'm getting my mom an iPad 2 but I know she is going to have problems using it, I'm 5 hours away from her so I wanted a way to take control of her iPad if it has issues? Thanks

    Not sure if it would work but I use Team Viewer as an app to access my pc via my iPad, may work the other way around?

    That's what I was wondering? I was looking at the app " team viewer" for that you type in your ID that they give you when you sign up. I might try downloading that to my pc and see how it works

    I am not sure what you are asking. If she is a node on your network, in theory, her ipad would see your Apple TV and be able to turn on mirroring. If you sre asking how to manipulate her iPad in this set-up you would not be able. You'd only be able to see what she is seeing.

    I only have one iPad, does anyone here have two? If so would you be willing to try the team viewer app on both iPads to see if you can control each other with the team viewer app?

    Oh I just checked again and see that there is a free team viewer app and one that is more expensive. I thought the free one would do the job?

    I looked at the wrong one. I installed it but there is no host option.
