    Experts,

    i have iphone4 (JB) and ipad 2 ( waiting ) .
    just wandering , how to watch videos and play games on TV from phone and ipad ?

    correct me if i am wrong.

    there are 2 ways of doing it.

    1. by using AV /HDMMI converter ( will it work for Both ? phone and ipad ? )
    2. wait till i get iOS 5 and buy Apple TV and do the same thing without any wire connection and without any AV/HDMI converter ..

    Any ways i was planing to buy Apple TV. so i guess i should wait till iOS5 comes.

    any comments on this ?

    av/hdmi works for video

    to mirror the device on the TV you need to be jailbroken, cant think of the tweak i think its TV out or something

    thanks..good to know.

    I do have jailbroken iphone. But, if i have Apple TV ( with iphone iOS5 ) do i still need AV/HDMI connector ?
    Assuming that we will have Jailbreake available for iOS5.

    i guess with JAilbroken iphone , i need AV/HDMI connector and TVout Tuner apps to do mirror ?

    where can you get a cheap cable, i'm assuming with a jailbroken Iphone you don't need the official cable from Apple.

    sorry don't mean to hijack the thread
