    Hi, new to the iPad, just bought myself a version 3.

    I am looking for an app that will allow me to browse and open files stored on a PC. They are mostly video files, from either a laptop or a PC connected to a TV via HDMI.

    I would like to have a view of the screen on the iPad as the text size is often too small to see on the TV.

    I am usually using KM Player or media Player Classic.

    Many of the files are zipped, and would love the functionality to be able to "right click" and unpack the files on the PC. I don't actually want to view the files on the IPad, just be able to mirror image what is on the PC.

    Thanks
