    I'm trying to hook my iPad 2 up to my onkyo home theater system so I can play music on my outdoor speakers wirelessly from my iPad (a rep at the apple store told me it can be done). Will this work?

    Here is a link to the home theater system I have with a visual pic.


    Please help or let me know what I cab do to hook it up wirelessly.

    Thanks!

    If you are using an Apple Tv, it will work for sure. Hook your HDMI cable to your tv set and your ready to go!

    It's not to a TV. Only to a home theater stereo that powers my outdoor speaks. See link above

    I saw, but the diagram shows DVD input, so surely it will work...

    If you're using Zone 2 for your outdoor speakers on the Onkyo, you can only play an analog input device. HDMI connection alone will not work since it's digital. You'll need to use the Apple TV's analog audio connection (assuming it has one - I understand the newer Apple TVs don't).
