Can someone help me get started on showing iPad 2 videos (and possibly photos) easily on my TV?

  • Video mirroring and video out support: Up to 1080p with Apple Digital AV Adapter or Apple VGA Adapter (cables sold separately)
  • Video out support at 576p and 480p with Apple Component AV Cable; 576i and 480i with Apple Composite AV Cable

Does this mean that you can see your iPad screen of any application in your TV with Apple Composite AV Cable? - I am unsuccessful in mirroring applications in my TV with the given cable. - It seems that it is impossible without jailbreaking the device. – Masi Jan 27 '12 at 16:37
Whether the mirroring works or not depends on whether the app developer has it supported. It can be disabled or enabled at their choice. – Orihara Jan 30 '12 at 0:35
