    The title says it all.

    I'd like to be able to do reviews and demonstrations of things on the iPad. I would also like to record weird behavior that I see in applications—so I can send them in bug reports to app developers.

    So! How do I record a screencast of the iPad like big Steve J does when he gives his presentations?

    Quickly press the home button and the power button simultaneously . The screen shot will be in your pictures directory.

    Accessory?

    If there is an accessory that allows you to connect to a TV, I would think you could connect to DVR/VCR first to do the record?

    If you have access to a nice document camera, I think that would be your best bet.

    Video output options for the iPad are the Apple iPad VGA Adapter, and the composite cable adapter. Both of these only work in a few select Applications (Youtube, Videos, Photos), and will not be what you're looking for.
