    How to play psx games on your iPad

    I watched the whole pointless video there waiting for the hack to enable full screen, thanks for the mis-information.

    No, forums work brilliantly when everyone with the same problem creates a new thread. </facepalm>

    Why start a new thread for this? You've already found and added a reply to the existing thread about this exact topic.

    iOS 4.2 beta version issues - Read before posting about locked iOS 4.2 restore

    Just a heads up laxman - your Enter key is broken.

    Remote desktop on iPad...

    If you wish to keep the main display active while you're connecting through the iPad, you will need to use one of the VNC apps that are available. It's designed behaviour for an RDP connection to lock the session at the workstation end as soon as you log in.

    Camera Connection Kit + Jailbreak = cheap video storage!

    I meant cheap in comparison to forking out the extra dough apple want for a 64gb version not cheap in comparison to whatever 3rd party product it is you wish you bleat on about. With the added ability that a jailbreak and CCK give you, you can get the 16gb model and just use sd cards to...

    Play .wmv files?

    Not all encoding apps seem to produce iTunes compliant mp4 files. I find that the aleesoft iPad converter for example never gives me an mp4 which iTunes likes. I found that running the mp4 through avidemux 2.5 (just remixing to a new mp4) solved this. I then later found that Tmpgenc 4 xpress...

    Yes, I needed it before I go on holiday next week so payed eBay price to get one.

    Camera Connection Kit + Jailbreak = cheap video storage!

    My 32gb card is a Kingston but my 2gb card is a Sandisk and that works fine also. Maybe your sandisk card is formatted in ntfs or something?

    Jailbreak with 3.2 but what will I do when 4 is release

    You are free to upgrade to iOS 4 the day it comes out if you want to. You'd lose your jailbreak of course and all the benefits that go with it but being jail broken now will not prevent you from upgrading later. Personally, I'm not excited about OS4 in the slightest, all the major improvements...

    Anyone else having a problem with brightness/SBSettings?

    Yes, I've seen this a few times.

    Camera Connection Kit + Jailbreak = cheap video storage!

    Yes, in fact I don't even have a camera that takes SD, I bought the kit purely to allow additional storage for video on my iPad.

    Camera Connection Kit + Jailbreak = cheap video storage!

    Additional: in the iFile preferences, set the default directory to var/mnt/mount1 to save having to browse there or use a bookmark. For my sun breaks in Cyprus, I already have Archer, Caprica and Leverage encoded to mp4 and on the sd card. Just need to choose a few more series to encode and I'm...

    Camera Connection Kit + Jailbreak = cheap video storage!

    I'm converting everything to .mp4. For tv episodes I've found you can leave the x264 video as is and just re-encode the audio to aac (quite a quick job with avidemux). For movies or an episode that needs a complete re-encode, I'm using tmpgenc xpress 4.0 set to 1000kbps average video (14,000...
