Ipad/Iphone to TV connection

I have googled running my iphone/Ipad throught the TV in my RV and find it very confusing. I think I need an adapter to connect to the HDMI port, but then there is discussion on also connecting the charger. Can anyone decipher this for me? It would be helpful to buy the correct items on the first try!

Another issue

Some of the adapters don't support Netflix/Prime etc. I do want to be able to send the streaming programming to the TV.



Thanks for the help,


Dennis

Assuming you have an available HDMI port in your rig, this would get you connected most easily: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/M...tal-av-adapter

That adapter + an HDMI cable and you're all set (your device can be charged at the same time).

There are many ways to get connected wirelessly, but that depends a bit more on your level of tech and willingness to get it set up.

I have not heard of that. We used to use a iPad with an adapter to watch Netflix, YouTube TV, Amazon Prime and Hulu for sure.

We use an inexpensive ROKU box to access Netflix, Prime, etc. You can add almost any that you are subscribed to.

Like Norty1, I use a Amazon Fire Stick to stream my Netflix, Prime Video... The only issue I have is DW’s Hallmark Movie Channel is through our Roku channel and Fire Stick dies not have a Native Roku app (a little quirky). I may try my little Roku device next outing.
But, either device using my phone our iPad as hotspot for WiFi connection. It pulls the battery heavy, so I keep it charging during use.

This. And spring for the Apple adapter, not some knockoff, trust me. It works well in most cases, although we found it a little wonky with our Dish on Demand, which taps into our Hopper box back home. But better than nothing.

Chromecast should cast from an Ipad to any TV with an HDMI port. You plug the Chromecast device into the HDMI port on the television, go through the set-up process on your Ipad and then whatever it is you are watching on the Ipad appears you touch the Chromecast Icon on the Ipad and it gets cast to the television.

I bought this red cable on eBay....

I connect my Iphone or Ipad to the tv.

Unlimited Visible internet for $25 a month.

Frndly live tv for $6 a month with 15-channels.

It works perfect for me.

As some others have said, make sure you get the genuine Apple HDMI adapter, some of the knockoffs don't work with major content because of digital rights protection. It has an HDMI out port so you can run the HDMI cable to your TV and it also has a lightning port so you can connect your Apple charger cable and it will charge your phone while watching TV. It works quite well and is mostly foolproof.

Some have mentioned Chromecast, Fire stick, Roku, etc. If you are trying to run your streaming through your phone via LTE (since many phone plans allow you to stream video and audio without counting against your data), then you need something like the HDMI adapter. If you use a streaming device, you need to be able to use "screen mirroring" as opposed to "casting". The screen mirroring approach is a bit hit or miss, while the HDMI adapter ALWAYS works.
