Using your iPad for a listing presentation can be nifty. Linking that iPad to a television for an even more impressive presentation can be even more nifty. Tim Dain from Southwestern Illinois Regional MLS shows us how in this video.

I just gave myself 4 out of 5 stars...is this the equivalent of pushing the "like" button on my own facebook post?

I do it all the time. (You should have given yourself 5 stars, though.) :)

Thanks Emily...If I could replace the shirt with a suit jacket I would bump it to 5 starts :)

Or with the Xoom, connect direct! The Xoom has an HDMI port. Good HDMI cables only need to cost $10/15 online.

The xoom is cool but the idea is to connect wireless not through an HDMI port. The iPad also has a tethered connection that can be used. Does the Xoom have an untethered solution?

I agree with the cable cost but most people run to the store. Did you know that Best Buy has a 700% mark up on one HDMI cable...are you kidding me?

OK, I missed that point. No equiv of AppleTV (maybe Roku??) AFAIK. But I have a 20 ft HDMI cable that cost about $14 online, and that will be long enough for most cases (any longer, you're probably using a projector anyway!). I agree re: the cost of cables. I read an article a few months ago, they tested various costs for cables and found the cheaper ones are just as good as the expensive.

OMG - this is awesome - I am buying one today!

Hey Chris,
I've looked at Roku for my home TV solution but decided my solution with an Xbox (now have apps) and digital antenna were preferable since I can record to the Xbox. At the time of my solution review I didn't notice the ability to project devices using the roku.

Sure, I wasn't suggesting it, it was just a thought off the top of my head. I've never looked into it and, not really needing it, haven't delved deeper :)

What an amazing way to do a listing presentation. I see you used Apple, is it exclusive to using Mac Tim?

Hey Agi,
The setup only works when using an iPad and Apple TV. I do not have a Mac. I wish Apple TV would let me project my windows computer.

I can't verify the next statement...I do not have a Mac...

"You folks might be interested in knowing about AirVideo Server, and Airflick. The combination of these two tools will do what you want. It will use airplay to stream wirelessly from your device to atv2, doing conversion on the fly. airflick will send files from desktop to atv2. (And photo's, pdf's, desktop) Very cool stuff."
