    I have the PC paid version $12.99? Works fine recording the iPad screen and audio. Haven't tried to use it to record any DRM stuff. But it did record me playing around with some synths and drawing apps just fine. Great for showing some how-to stuff.

    My sister has an ATV2 & an iPad 3. She has a TV in her kitchen that she cannot get a cable to so she can't watch her recorded shows on it (they watch the kitchen tv a lot these days). The iPad app will not let you watch your recorded shows, right? I was hoping she could do that & then use AirPlay to the ATV that's hooked to the kitchen tv :).

    I believe you are correct in that she will not be able to interface between her ATV and DTV.

    One of the nomad users might be able to chime in to help. I'm not sure if you can watch a nomad recording thru airplay as I don't have a nomad. This might be a possibility.

    You can't AirPlay Nomad/GoGenie either. You can use the mirror feature of the iPad though.

    Hmm, that's interesting that you can't AirPlay a Nomad recording. I'll have to look into how to mirror.

    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.

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

    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!
