    I have a 15" MBP with Thunderbolt port and an iPad 2.

    I am trying to find a way to mirror the screen of the iPad 2 onto the MBP so that I can do video conferencing on my laptop and perform demos to some of our sales reps that are in satellite offices.

    How can this be done without jailbreaking? I was hoping I could use my Apple TV and connect that to the MBP - then use wireless mirroring - but it looks like I can't pass the audio/video to the MBP from the Apple TV. Here are the tools I have at my disposal:

    -15" MBP w/ Thunderbolt
    -iPad 2
    -Apple TV
    -Older Cinema Display with DVI
    -DVI-Mini Display Adapter
    -HDMI Adapter for iPad 2
    -HDMI to DVI cable

    Would my best/only real option be to have access to the Dev SDK and use those tools? Is that even available in the SDK or is there only a simulator available?

    I miss veency and my jailbreak.

    Nope, only a simulator.

    If you want to use the iPad, you'll probably want to connect the iPad to some kind of HDMI tuner/input device (something like EyeTV), though most would cause too much latency for what you need.

    Hmm, so it sounds like something like veency and jail breaking is the only real viable solution?
