Now i know about Maxivista using wifi to act as a 2nd monitor to pc. I bought it and use it but i find the lag very annoying. I was wondering if there is a method using the hdmi adapter cable for the ipad2 and a jailbreak app that could do this?

Anyone?

Cheers

I use AirDisplay. Very fast and works well.
It is impossible with the HDMI connector, it is made for video out, not video in.

Yeh i just bought it and confirm it works better than maxivista. Only gripe is dragging windows about and i'm getting traces left behind, then i have to right click>refresh and it clears them. Bit annoying.

I use air display at the office for my 3rd monitor for exclusively displaying my outlook email.
