how do you connect the iPad to a TV to watch movies?
I want to be able to watch tv and movies on the iPad but also be able to play them on my TV as well. I see a lot of things I can't do with this connector. Is there a way to do this with something else?

You could use the Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter with a VGA to HDMI cord, along with a line out for audio. I use a Mini Display port to VGA with that cable (on my MBP) and it looks great.

I use my Apple TV and broadcast the movie using the new settings on the iPhone. No need for any cables. But if you want, you can buy the HDMI adapter.

You can actually do watch movies from your iPad on your tv !
Either download them from iTunes or if you have the dropbox folder installed on your iPad, you can upload movies in your dropbox from your computer's folder and watch them on your iPad. However only movies *.mp4 format are readable with the iPad.
