    Does anyone know if there is a way to output the iphone 4 display to an external monitor using the iPad vga adapter? Not just photos and videos, but actually output everything? Like if I wanted to browse the web with Safari and output to a monitor?

    if you're using the apple vga dock or apple composite/component cables, you don't even need resupported.

    I use DisplayOut with my iPad VGA connector. Works pretty well for me. Can watch NetFlix on my monitor at work :D

    DisplayOut shows everything though right? In essence, mirroring the phones display? Homescreen, Safari, etc?

    What I really want is a way to browse gaming and fantasy league forums and websites at my desk at work. A lot of that includes images of spreadsheets and long sections of text, and its a pain on the phones screen.

    I picked up $20 composite cables and with DisplayOut I watch Netflix in the minivan. Works great when the kids want to watch some cartoons when visiting the grandparents.

    displayout gives me major lag when I try to watch videos or play high paced app games....maybe it's just me, I don't know...can't find the solution anywhere on google. Everything else gets mirror displayed nicely, but just sick of the lag when I try to watch videos from my ipad library.

    DisplayOut mirrors everything on your iPhone screen. Using Safari is a bit odd since it basically blows up whats on your iPhone screen. Still usable but nothing like viewing Safari on your laptop/PC. Some apps that auto-rotate will work however some of them won't rotate properly for some reason.

    Is there an app that outputs only video to a TV, rather than just outputting everything on the screen? I seem to remember using one with my 3GS but I'm not sure. I'm using TVOut2 Mirror TVOut on my iphone 4 right now but that outputs my home screen, etc. All I want to be able to do is output the video from slingplayer, my ipod videos, netflix app videos, etc. Is that possible or is TVOut 2 the only way I can do this?
