wow

Just downloaded tunesremote on my ipad2 and iphone 3GS and after a bit of searching on bluetooth i was able to get them to see each other! What an amazingly simple concept, so glad I found this thread! Download it, it's worth the money!

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!)

I am now using Tango remote, works great and uses wifi or BT for a connection. Having the the ability to control what my daughter is whaling from the front seat is great. No more pulling over!

I contacted VNC about this and here is the question and reply:

VNC:
Currently you cannot perform this but we are looking in to for a future release

Sounds like in the future you may be able to do this without jailbreaking your device, I hope so anyway.


veency with iteleport WORKS my friend you just have to set up the ipad as computer manually... ip address etc...

Do one require a wireless network for the VNC client on the iPhone to work with the jailbroken veency server on the iPad? Or does the iPhone directly connect to the veency server on the iPad? See, I have an iPhone 4S and an iPad 2. My wish is to actually connect the iPhone to a projector using the VGA adapter I bought from the iStore. Then the iPhone is basically supposed to be a wireless receiver that can port my iPad's screen through the iPhone onto the projector. Then I can use my iPad to walk around in class, presenting my stuff to the students. Is this at all possible without a WiFi network access point present?

I'm confused the OP is talking about playing videos from his pc when hes out and about but refering to it as 'AirPlay' I thought this was wireless playing music and video through a wireless connection using an apple TV?

I am a teacher. I purchased apple tv an HDMI cord to connect the apple tv to the projector. Then I use my iPhone 4 as a personal hotspot to configure wifi. On my iPad-2. Once Wifi set-up is achieved I choose the remote app on my iPad 2 select apple tv. Then on my ipad2 bar,where volume keys are, I select the mirror button and
choose apple tv. On the screen, being projected, is everything on my iPad 2.

Even though I have a 3G data plan on my iPad 2 I still have to use my iPhone 4 as the personal hotspot

What exactly is AirPlay. I have iPad 2 and apple tv

are you asking, what is airplay?.....did not see any ?

General hint; you don't need internet for wifi access....just plug in a router, to utilize wifi access(to use airplay).
There is an app called airport utility, to go with apple routers, for easy setup.

Apple airplay

Just checking in to see if anyone's had luck. TANGO is the closest ive gotten the only issue is the movies have to be on the iPad.

Ideally I would like to store movies on the computer to save HD space on the iPad and specifically use AIRPLAY to watch movies on my home theatre.

Is there an app out there yet that will control AIRPLAY from the iPhone to the IPad ?

Hi all,

Sorry to hijack the thread but thought it appropriate as we've just released an app that does exactly what you're after.

It's called Movie Remote Kids and aimed at the parent/child market to allow kids to watch movies in the back of the car and Mum or Dad be in control on the front.

I think that you need to be more clear that this can NOT control movies purchased through iTunes. What a waste! Do any of the other two apps mentioned on here (Tunes Remote or Tango Remote) work with the Movies app?

I have both 4s & iPad 2 - also jailbroken. I downloaded the Veency on iPad 2 & got iteleport, but no dice. Ultimately I like to transform my iPad into a pc (bluetooth keyboard) & using my iPhone 4s as a mouse on the iPad.
