    Is there any jailbreak hack out there (or will it ever be possible to see such a hack) that would allow someone to simply plug their iOS device in to their HDTV with an HDMI cable and get the functionality as if it is an Apple TV: video streaming from Mac, AirPlay streaming from other iOS device, Music streaming, etc.

    I realize their are video streaming apps out there that have this functionality. This is why I find it hard to dish out the money for an Apple TV. The only hassle is standing up to change or pause the video I am streaming.

    Now with Mountain Lion's AirPlay Mirroring, I can only hope someone out there creates a hack that would allow mirroring to my iPhone and better yet, allow the (full resolution) output to an HDTV.

    Does anyone have any suggestions of an already existing hack that would suffice?
