    I want to connect an ipad 1 to the tv via hdmi to watch movies being streamed to my ipad from my pc via the airvideo or plex apps. I can't seem to find anything official from apple for this but only ones on ebay or amazon but concerned they will be garbage.

    You need the Digital AV adaptor - Apple do sell an official one.

    Thanks for some reason I kept overlooking that one.

    It says it does support the ipad 1 and iphone 4 so why have I read that I need to jailbreak the ipad 1 and iphone 4 for it to work? or is that just for the mirroring the entire interface? I only want the adapter to play movies on my tv from the apps I mentioned which I believe support tv out.

    the ipad1 only sends video out on specific apps, not mirroring.....
