    should. It will depend on the software. I currently have a first get with a VGA adapter and it does basically the same. That just supports 1080p.

    Just read the product description on the apple store which states that it will not only work with the original iPad, but also iPhone 4 and the new iPod touches. I'm guessing it's the 4.3 iOS update that provides the screen mirroring.

    The Apple Digital AV Adapter will work on the iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPod touch (4th gen.). Screen mirroring will only work on the iPad 2 (until the jailbreaking community gets ahold of 4.3, fingers-crossed).

    is there any particular reason why mirroring is not an option for iPad 1?

    Possible answers:
    1) It's Apple.
    2) Performance issues that make it require the dual-cores of the iPad 2.
    3) It's Apple.

    So what's the use of this adapter if it doesn't do screen mirroring?

    I suppose just video out, if you don't want to use the current VGA adapter. *shrug* Its only an attractive product to me if the jailbreaking community finds out a way to enable it on all iOS devices.

    Will the sound work through the TV too?
    Or just the picture on the TV?

    And if it's screen mirroring, any reason why the MLB App wouldn't blow up on the big screen? <fingers crossed>

    Thanks

    I'm sure app makers can disable screen mirroring. For example, don't expect Hulu+ to allow it.

    Maybe MLB will use the new airplay API to put the game on your tv!
