    AirPlay is an amazing program that I can actually play stored videos on my computer. Remotely via wifi on a trip in a hotel room or coffee shop.

    It's all good but was wondering:

    Is there an app that can remote control the iPad so I can scroll through videos, stop videos, fast forward videos, and etc?

    Ipad2 hooked to HDMI cable to LED TV

    Any help appreciated....

    Get an AppleTV? You can then control it with either the iPad or the iPhone.

    Check out tunesremote. I was looking for a similar solution and found it the other week. I never tried it but looks like it could work.

    actually - i've been waiting for jailbreak on my iPad2 to enable this, as I want the exact same setup, to control my iPad2 that's connected to a tv over HDMI remotely(cuz holding a ipad2 connected to a long arse hdmi cable draping all the way to my couch looks ugly).

    To use the iphone 4 as a true remote to an iPad/iPad2 you need the VNC server and client setup. iPad2 as the VNC server, and iphone as vnc client.

    If you're unfamiliar with VNC - it's basically a cross platform server/client install that enables remote desktop control. At first it was for PC OSes like Linux, windows and Mac. And it's been ported over to iOS.. this is wat you'd need(once ipad2 is jb'd!)

    VNC Server - is called Veency, developed by Saurik, available on Cydia
    VNC Client - lots of different VNC client apps available from the app store, the one i like is called iTeleport.

    So basically once it's all setup and done, your iphone is a portable touchpad device that controls your iPad2. Perfect for the ipad2 with tv setup to watch movies, or browsing.. etc. With iPad2's hdmi out adapter, it's pretty close to a HTPC!

    just need the vital piece - jailbreak! and then we're goold!

    For controlling music I use Tango. Awesome App. Just download to both Ipad and Iphone (you only pay for it once), hook up your iphone to your stereo system, and change songs from your ipad over wifi.
