    Get the Apple TV 2nd Generation (the little black one). It's only $99. Then you can use Airplay to stream from your iPad to your TV in 720p HD and in 5.1 surround sound to your home theater receiver if you have one. Even rentals on your iPad stream to the Apple TV. Not to mention all of your photos and music too. The 4.3 update also allows 3rd party developers to make their iPad apps Airplay enabled and I use Air Video, Pandora, PBS, and quite a few others to stream directly to my big screen TV and nice receiver rather than watch the video or audio on the iPad. The new Apple TV makes an excellent compliment to the iPad and really enhances the value of your purchase without much extra cost.

    This sounds like a setup I need. Does it stream Netflix in fullscreen?

    Apple TV is the best option, stream from your computer, iOS device, Netflix, and others to your TV for $99.

    You won't need it to stream netflix. Apple TV2 comes with a Netflix app. That's obviously in full screen.

    I agree. I picked up an Apple TV from a seller on CL brand new for $70 and I love it!

    Make sure you install the free Remote app on your iOS device. Amazing.

    I think so, I'd love one but don't have a newer tv. Just the composite connectors :(

    Yep. Modern 16:9 TVs all have HDMI inputs. One cable for both Video & Audio.

    iOs update wiped out a key control option?

    I was using my iPad 1 to transfer the audio from Pandora running on the iPad to my Apple TV so that I could use my Onkyo surround sound speakers. A recent update seems to have wiped out the option to redirect the iPad speakers to the Apple TV. Any help out there?

    Apple TV + iPad using Air Video app is probably my most used feature.
