      iPad 2, Sky Go and HDTV

      Hi,
      My Sky go works fine on my iPad 2 e.g. Sky Sports Channel but when I try to connect the ipad to my HDTV, via the apple HDMI connector, it doesnt work and comes up with an ewrror message about this app doesnt support HDMI.

      Any clues?

      Yes - "this app doesn't support HDMI"

      Thanks! Was wondering more about workarounds or alternative ways of setting things up. So is this just a known limitation of the app then? Any particular reason?

      I would assume that for one reason or another Sky simply doesn't want people using it on TVs.

      The only way round it AFAIK is to Jailbreak the iPhone and install something which can get round this kind of restriction.

      Sky Go does partly work with AirPlay. You get sound but no picture!!! You get the same 'HDMI out is not supported on this application' error message.

      I think we will have to jailbreak the iPad2 (which is avaliable on 4.3.3 but not 5.01 yet).
      iPad 1 jailbreak is avaliable for 5.01

      Then install displayout app from cydia appstore.
