Streaming movies from your iPad to your TV

Has anyone tried streaming movies from a iPad/tablet device to their Interstate TV. I can do it with my home TV but I'm finding myself struggle to get it to work in my Interstate. Any special cables (HDMI cables?) or tricks to get it to work?

I would just use an Apple TV. That will allow you to stream from your iPad, iPhone, etc. to any monitor.

I have Apple TV for my home and it runs off my main desktop computer through Bluetooth/Wi-Fi... So your suggesting plugging the Apple TV into the Interstate TV? Then with my iPad run the movies by Bluetooth/Wi-Fi right? My concern is if I'm not able to get to the iCloud to get my movies due to a bad signal. Respectfully, are there any other ways beside Apple TV or is this the best solution? Thanks

Apple does make an adapter that let's you run an HDML cable from your pad to the tv, that's what we use and it works great. We save the Apple TV for the house.

Ok, great... So I will plug HDMI cable into the slot on the side of the TV, Then change TV mode to accept the HDMI input. Sounds like a plan.

I use my iPhone instead of an antenna on our Overlander. All we ever watch is movies so this works out perfectly. Save your self some time and agrivation and get the cable from your local dealer. The Chinese junk from eBay and Amazon just doesn't work.

I have a chromecast and it is VERY limited in what you can stream. Yes it is an inexpensive product but you can only stream to it from applications that are written to stream to it, and those are very very few right now, I think the count is less than 5 apps for the iPhone or iPad.

You are much better off with an AppleTV or the hdmi cable adapter mentioned above.

I have read that you can't play movies from your own device using the Chrome Connector - the latest update makes it even more limited on its usefulness. I was really looking forward to a real 'mirror' of my laptop.

- in RE to the iPhone to HDMI adapter; it works GREAT to play movies you have on your phone; and Netflix worked on it; but Amazon Prime Video for iPhone DID NOT.

They are still trying to work out the licensing issues. . . . .

The issue with Amazon Prime should have been fixed in this latest update. I have not tried it myself but the release notes indicate that shield be fixed.
