    Is there anyway to transfer stuff like moves from you home computer onto your Ipad 2? I have my cable set up to run through a dvr into my home computer since my flat screen dosen;t have a cable hookup and I use my flatscreen as my computer monitor but I was wondering since I record alot of tv and movies onto my computer is there a way to transfer some onto my Ipad?

    Hmmm... Have you looked into Apple TV? If your Mac is recent enough, it will mirror, and share with AirPlay to the Apple TV box connected to your TV. Apple TV is also the asker to your iPad question. iPad will Airplay / stream / mirror to the Apple TV.

    There is also an app iMediaShare will stream directly to some TVs from an iPad. You will need to get the movie onto your iPad. This requires iTunes and a sync procedure.

    Yes you can i
    do it all the time,you need to download a movie for your own use,onto your PC.Then put it into a File.Then you need to make it into a mp4 file ,by using a file convertor you can download free off the Net.Once converted you need to connect your Ipad to your PC by the leads you should have when purchased your Ipad.you also must have ITunes on your PC

    Wouldn't it be easier to add a DVD player to your TV?

    the point is to be able to watch the movie away from home on the ipad. I have a dvd player surround sound system but would like to watch movies on the ipad with out haveing to buy them all over again. I have a lot of movies I have burned to disks over the years. Stuff that itunes dosen;t carry like some of my fav john wayne movies or carry grant stuff not to mention newer moives the would cost me 17.99 on itunes that I could buy for 5.00 on a dvd.

    The way to put movies on your iPad from your computer is through syncing with ITunes.
