I can't imagine how you did it without some sort of cable which has RCA connections. I know the GT-3.0 has Bluetooth capabilities but I think that is limited to music and phone (I used to enjoy that aspect of the Genesis in my TT I had; I have Bluetooth now but no phone support). But it looks like all the inputs are on the back. There is a USB port on front but not sure it will support iPad, though manual does mention playing video from USB source.

Have you considered an Apple TV? I took my old 2nd generation unit and keep it in the RV. HDMI to TV, and when I had the Genesis I also went optical audio to that to get even better sound. Then could use iPad Remote app if desired, but Netflix and many other options could go thru the Apple TV. Works pretty well for us.

From looking at ur pic, it looks like maybe the white slider in lower right needs to be in the second from top position (perhaps B; hard to read clearly). It looks like it is maybe on slot C.

From reviewing the manual and from my fuzzy memory, you have to put the GT in DVD mode so that you can use on-screen menu to adjust the Video Setup to choose an option other than DVD (page 16 of manual references this). I recall I had to play with it a bit to get TV audio to play thru the GT, after I had pulled the unit out and run audio cable from TV to the GT.

There's all kinds of ways to use your iOS device sharing a connection to netflix. I use a rokio and a bluray player in my trailer. If your television has wi-fi of course you can skip the middleman.

Doesn't it count against your data allowance when you connect to your phone? We have phone and MIFI service thru Verizon and if I use my Ipad3 to watch Netflix or Hulu, to watch a show, it uses up my data allowance. I've tried using the campground WIFI but response was way too slow.
