The Apple Digital AV Adapter allows you to mirror anything on your iPad 2 screen to an HDTV or computer monitor with HDMI input. Use this compact little cord to show your apps, presentations and more right on your big-screen television or computer monitor. While most displays render in full 1080p, movies will play at up to 720p.

Watch your movies and slideshows simply by connecting your iPad, iPhone 4 or iPod touch 4th gen using this av cable. A second 30-ping adapter allows you to charge and sync your device while it is connected to your HDMI display.

As you can see in the video, I can view nearly everything on my iPad right on that television. Audio and video both come through very clearly. My device is not jailbroken in any way: I simply used the av adapter. Being able to output your files onto a much larger screen is nearly priceless in some instances. It has certainly made the iPad even more useful than it already was!

I’m sure by now you’re wondering why – exactly – you would even care to do something like this. After all, you bought the iPad because it is small, light and portable. However, there truly could be instances where you would want or need to see what’s on the device on a much larger screen. Perhaps you have put together a presentation you need to share for work. Instead of praying anyone other than the person next to you can see it on the iPad screen, why not plug it in to an external HDMI display?

Use your iPad to create a slideshow for your parent’s anniversary dinner and share it on a bigger screen with everyone gathered together. Shoot a video on the device to propose to your significant other and broadcast it on the television when she (or he!) least expects it. There are so many things you could do with this one tiny little white cable that it boggles the mind.

Go ahead – grab one for yourself and watch as I grin quietly instead of saying “I told you so.”

http://live.pirillo.com/ – Roy asks why, when he connects his PC to his HDTV via the HDMI connector, he can’t see videos play back on his screen.

The problem is DRM: if you set the HDMI-out as the default monitor on Windows, then the videos will play. Windows Media Player only lets video play on the primary monitor.

Why is this so difficult? This is copy protection in action. Large content production studios don’t want you to steal (share) the video with other people. It’s called Digital Rights Management, and it’s a consumer nightmare.

As easy as it is to plug in an HDMI cable, DRM introduces another level of complexity that users should not have to deal with.

What’s the worst part of DRM? It doesn’t work. All you need to do is visit your favorite bit torrent website to confirm that hard fact.
