I have an iPad and I am interested in buying a TV for it, so I can watch online videos with the iPad providing the input. I guess my questions are the following:

  1. What type of connection should I make sure the TV has? Maybe it is better/a must to get a computer screen?
  2. Is there anything like a remote control that I can use for the iPad and buy at the Apple Store?
  3. Is there anything else I need to know about this setup? Maybe it is a bad idea?

Get a TV with HDMI inputs and the Apple HDMI AV Adapter. You won't need a remote as the iPad will be your controller.

You could also get an Apple TV and stream the videos wirelessly.

You should be aware that many of the more-desirable features (like screen mirroring for apps that don't support TV outputs) won't work on an original iPad; you'll have a better experience if you have an iPad 2 or newer.
