    I've been looking on their website, on itunes description and any google searches and am not finding any information on what their live TV feature is. I'm assuming it will take a TV feed from a tuner card on a PC, but it doesn't really say and I didn't want to purchase it just to find out.

    Anyone tried the live TV feature care to comment what it is and how it works?

    From what I understand it doesn't do "live TV". The new TV out features allows you to output to a TV so that instead of watching the streamed video on the "small" iPad screen, you can watch it on the "big" TV screen.

    Hasn't this always been possible? I use it on my iPhone like that all the time, a portable ATV. I use the Apple component cable. Is it just updated for the iPad to be able to do the same as the iPhone version could? I don't yet have my iPad.

    I use the componet cable now with my iPad and Air Video never worked. Videos, pictures (slideshow) and music works but Air Video did not. I have to give this a shot when I get home. It would be awesome to not have to convert videos and just watch them on the big screen...
