    I don't think you need apple tv for this. All you need to do is connect the apple cable to your Ipad and the other end, either component (red, yellow, white) or composite (red, blue, green, white) at the back of your TV and you're good to go. That is of course while running the movie on your ipad which is streaming a movie you picked from Netflix..at least that's how I would think it would work using these cables :)

    This is what I thought when I was reading about it on Netflix. Let me understand ~

    Might be quite a task, but I will try. No comments!:D

    I can stream movies through the iPad TO my TV? I need to get an Apple Cable? I am going to talk to Netflix about it.

    At some point ~

    Okay ~ I called NF. You were right and I knew I read it somewhere too! I would need a Patch Cable from Apple. Hook it up to the iPad and then to the TV.

    He didn't know how much it was though ~

    Ok so there is iPad to via plug but how do you get the rgb/rya type cables, I'm thinking the older tbs in some out of the way hotels are not going to have a monitor style VGA port.

    Ok so I researched, saw the av specific and yeah, Frys has them so can run get a set.... Can I get the component (5 line) and use it backward as a 3 line if I have to?

    Hey, B! I don't know. The guy at at NF told me to to go into Apple and ask for the patch cable.

    I googled it and there are more then one, of course!

    Yeah I was reading and they are not backward compatible so you gotta buy the one that goes with your tv hookups....which is fine when you know what tv you're going to use but not so great when you are visiting and have no advanced knowledge of the structure. Guess I'll keep packing the wii.
