Easiest way to connect my Ipad to my TV

Hi!
I have an Ipad 4g and would like to connect it to my TV to show movies or photos or whatever.

I thought buying an Apple TV but as in my Ipad I can find the same apps as Netflix, I would only need to pair it with my TV by a cable or whatever.

Please advise me on what I need in order to connect vidio and audio

Thanks in advance.

#1 connecting iPad to TV

As far as I know, this is not yet possible. the iPad is very limited as it has no video out or any HDMI ports so there is no way to connect to any external source. the only other way to pairing external hardware is via airplay, but unless its an Apple TV, this will not work with third party hardware either.

#3 HDMI Input to TV

The Digital AV Adapter will give better quality video to your TV if it has an HDMI input. Make sure you get one with the correct connector for your iPad - either 30 pin or lightning. They are available from Apple and others on the Internet.

Thank you very much Amanda and Dave, now I see the light

#5 Reflector

Sorry to contradict Usman, but I thought I'd mention another alternative. The software Reflector (http://www.airsquirrels.com/reflector/), allows you to mirror your iPad to any computer, Mac or PC. I realize this isn't what Karina wanted, but it's interesting to know it's available.
