Apple connector to either HDMI or RCA plugs. Check Apple store as I believe they have several different types. Find what your TV needs.

You can also mirror using Airplay wirelessly.

HDJulie,

Another possibility that you could do is to use a slingbox and app to get access to thew recordings then use airplay to the TV. There are pluses and minus's to this. On the minus side, you would have to purchase the slingbox and app. On the plus side, it would also allow viewing content outside of the home network.

Though I haven't used airplay with the slingbox app, I do use the ipad app every day to watch the news while I get ready for work. I find it very simple to work and allows me the flexability to go different rooms and not have to turn on each TV.

When I get time in the next day or so, I'll hook up my ATV3 and report back how it works.

Of course, there may ne other type "sling" devices that work just as good but I have no experience with those.

Nomad does let you stream any recording from your HD DVRs to the clients. We replaced a 13" TV with RF link in the kitchen with a movable cabinet bracket for the iPad. Wife uses it or the streaming in DAFI while she's cooking.

We also take the ATV when we travel. Lots of times the HDMI connection or mirroring from the iPad is better than the local TV programming.

Yep.  If you really want an Apple TV2, be ready to spend "big bucks" on eBay. These are going for almost $500.00

 

No s**t????  I have one still sitting on the shelf from where I upgraded to the Gen 3.

 

Why the high price?

Because they can be jailbroken, the ATV3 can't.

you are waisting your time with the 3 if you have a 2 available.

The value is for the ones who know what to do with the ATV 2.  For anybody else there is no difference between the two.  as a matter of fact, they will tell  the ATV3 is better because it does 1080p!
