I just bought an Apple Digital TV Adapter. I have an iPad2.
I know, to share my iPad screen, Just connect iPad to Adapter & then connect Adapter second end to Monitor/Screen. Now, My question is as follows.

  • I do have a laptop. Is there a way to produce output of iPad into my laptops screen ?
  • Actually, I am already sharing my Laptop's screen on a projector.

So, the thing is, while having discussion, I can share my screen of Laptop. & when I need to share ipad screen, I will start screen of iPad into my laptop & laptop screen will be appeared on projector. I know this sounds ridiculous, But this is what I want to achieve. As, I am not demonstrating fully on iPad. iPad demonstration is for few minutes only.

thanks for sharing your great knowledge here.

There is no [practical] way to bring the video signal of your iPad to your laptop.

Standard practice is to hook up both devices to the projector and switch input on that - you can use an external switcher if your projector only has one input.

Another idea would be to run an AirPlay Mirror server on your laptop and use that to display (over WiFi network) the video signal of the iPad2 on the laptop.

Last but not least, you could maybe do all your presentations via the iPad, if you don't have to show off o.s.-specific stuff. If it's just presentations or PDFs you're set to go with your iPad2 and maybe Apple Keynote for iOS
