    only the iPad 2 will do 1080p out, so if you plan on using this on the first generation iPad and if the jailbreak doesn't do 1080p out, then their is no advantage in getting the HDMI adapter.

    this, either way you should buy hdmi.

    most tv's have hdmi, not all have vga and hdmi has audio.

    My vote is for the apple tv connection kit. Works great on my 1st gen jb iPad.

    Btw I use the app "display out" (well worth the price)

    If I may ask, with AirPlay why do you need the hdmi cable if you cannot get HD on it?

    Due to limitations of the airplay I presume?

    For the iPad 2 does the audio go through hdmi also?

    Doesn't Airplay only let you view content on a TV if you have an Apple TV? Maybe they would like to buy just a cable and not an Apple TV?
