Was going to buy a hdmi connector lead for my ipad but i see you can stream to the apple tv with no wires so might add the extra cash and not bother with the cable

Anyone got a jailbroken one?

If so would you recommend one ?

Considering getting one of these - would you guys particularly recommend it over the like of the Roku boxes?

This is worth a read I hink only glanced at it myself but I book marked it a while ago bud

can you link an ipad to a tv with a regular hdmi lead?

0 |

You need an adapter for the ipad first.

0 |

They love skinning the fuck out of people dont they.

Any wonder they have so much money. Media for the middle class. Or just skin flinting regular folk.

0 |

No you need an adapter as s said but none for airplay on the tv

0 |

I have a WDTV live and they need to sort out getting permission to use airplay from apple. I'm not splashing out for another device or adapter.

The mrs got me one at Christmas, jailbroke it and it's pretty sweet. You can I stall xbmc on it and this gives you access to all the tv shows and films free, he content too although apple tv is 720p. Loads of other add ons for xbmc too. Have plex on my apple tv also it scraps the net and adds all the artwork, info etc that you have for films and tv shows stores on your various Devices linked to apple tv. Yes you can AirPlay your iPad or iPhone to your apple tv. New apple tv is 1080p but can't be jailbroke at the moment. Xbmc can also be I stalled on iPad

Fuck this phone

What does xbmc do on iPad?

I've never used it

Nik just to update I installed that imediashare free app just now and it's streaming fine on my Xbox so if u hav an xbox or ps3 it should save u some $'s

0 |

Got an Xbox but rarely use it and don't have a wifi adapter for it. Also like the size of apple tv as I can bring it round different rooms in the house easily

0 |

I literally cant get the tv working, I have no idea how all you people gather so much technology ability

0 |

Xbox just has to be hard wired to modem, iPad connects to wifi

Never understood techno phobes MTB as I always knew most things but now I'm falling behind and struggle to keep up I usually find every time I want something new I hav to go and research and educate myself on it it's a serious melt but I get why technophobes stay technophobes lol

It's fucking disgraceful that they won't standardise ports so one lead will fit all. Just milking the fuck out of you.

God bless google

You can install xbmc on your laptop too. Am out at the minute but if you YouTube xbmc and ice films and xbmc 1 channel you will get the idea.

0 |

Or xbmc iPad and xbmc apple tv 2

0 |

Got xbmc intalled on my iPad with icefilms, 1channel and navi x.

Now to get the apple tv3 for 1080 hd and steam to it from the ipad

0 |

Must try it I haven't installed it on my iPad yet. Handy for when your away from home

0 |

you might encounter some bandwidth issues streaming 1080p

also the iPad has that spastic aspect ratio so be prepared to waste some screen space on black bars

0 |

IPad outputs native 16:9 btw

0 |

I've put a few 1080ps on the iPad 3..black bar city

0 |

It streams the screen so if it looks ok on the iPad would it not like fine on the tv?

Hopefully they'll jailbreak apple tv3 soon but until then it will do

0 |

not entirely sure, your tv and ipad are different aspect ratios

0 |

Still be a sweet setup. Getting a MacBook air which also streams to the apple tv

0 |

It's a great wee device, handy as fuck

0 |

For PC users, there's a download called AirParrot. Allows you to mirror your PC screen through AppleTV. It was good yesterday for streaming LOF. Extend screen mode not currently available, but even still, it's handy. Plus you can choose resolution, so no black bars at side. Really adds another dimension to Apple TV which I hadn't been using that frequently.

Any word on jailbroken ipad 3 yet? Theres a jailbroken apple tv 2 going for 120 here all set up and ready to go with channels etc added to it already. Is it hard to do this yourself? Easy to just go to the apple store and buy the apple tv and do it yourself?

Jailbroken apple tv 3* FFS

Im thinking of getting an apple TV just to make use of £200 worth of iTunes vouchers and some ball bag even gave us £100 of app store vouchers.

Regarding airplay, will absolutely everything stream or are there any restrictions for the like of BT sport or sky go?

Maybe I should get a NAS as well? We have a macbook air and countless iPads and iPod touches and phones in the house.

0 |

Sky Go is restricted. It doesn't allow streaming from iPad to TV via the cable so I imagine its the same for AIR. Stupid restriction Sky put on the app. I bought a 300 quid mini desktop last week and set it up for media. Great job. One device to do everything.

0 |

The Mac mini? Maybe I should just buy one of them and put it under the TV? I could do with more storage so maybe it'll kill 2 birds

0 |

Mac mini is class as a media hub. I might get one this year.

0 |

I got a windows one, but Mac Mini is a great piece of kit.

0 |

Ffs, I come on here asking about spending £80 on apple TV and am getting talked in to buying a £500 Mac mini.

0 |

300 quid will get you a very good small desktop with a similar spec to mac mini.

0 |

Yeah, I should probably get something like that S1 but I'm balls deep in Apple now and have all the vouchers to use.

I use a windows laptop mesel. I fucking hate that macbook air. Its fucking shite.

Also have ps3 which is a great media device along with Netflix and lovefilm.

0 |

ebay the Apple vouchers ffs

0 |

The wife was maybe gonna do that shat, but I'm averse to selling presents, doesn't feel right

0 |

Who's gonna know if you don't tell 'em

0 |

spunk it on a new retina mini

0 |

The karma police will know shat, Got that RJ.

Wait a minute, I could swap the vouchers for something else via eBay, that could work.

And news just in, wee bro's got an apple TV that he doesn't use, I predict that's coming my way!

0 |

Why do you not like the Air Choc Ice? Just got a new Pro and it's surpassed my expectations. Best Mac I've owned I think.

0 |

Probably just my ignorance deci, more iOS than the machine itself, having to click the touch pad instead of a tap, and simple things that I'm probably just doing wrong eg, I cycle through options shut down, sleep, restart and hit enter on the option I want and it doesn't bloody do it so I end up going back to the touch and clicky pad. Grrr. I'm a huge fan of tab and enter.

But the wife has been organising the family photos on the thing which seems very good.
