    Can Roku be used to stream movies on iPad2 to a non-Apple TV?

    I have an iPad2, I have Amazon's Prime, which allows movies to be streamed to my iPad. I have found that you cannot stream those movies to the TV using an HDMI cable. However, if I buy Roku, can I stream the Amazon Prime movies from my iPad to the non-Apple TV via the Roku?

    Please decipher this error message

    When I talked to Amazon, after hearing my problem, the man i talked to (who seemed quite knowledgeable) was very positive that the method Amazon uses to stream movies/TV to an iPad is not compatible with forwarding that onto a TV via HDMI. Of course, I am not knowledgeable at all about these...
