I can see my ipad desktop on my TV, even scrolling through my amazon library, and previewing other vids on demand. However, once I play my downloaded vid (sons of anarchy, season 5 episode 1).. the vid plays on my ipad, but I get audio only on my TV.
I also tried RCA cables, but I can't figure out how to get my TV to recoginze.
Any help???

I'm having the same issue. I have cable matters iPad to HDMI adapter along with various sized HDMI cables. When connected trying to play Amazon Instant video, I see the video playing on the iPad, the TV detects the signal but all I get is audio.

Same here. YouTube videos play easily but with amazon app I only get the sound when my iPad is connected to the tv. I have all the correct cables!

The Amazon app doesn't support HDMI. Both video and audio for shows I buy from iTunes work for me via HDMI from my iPad2.

This is very disappointing. I can watch the amazon videos on the ipad 2, but I cannot play through the HDMI. You would think that a company like amazon would have this figured out. I signed up for Prime so I could watch movies, TV programs etc.. on my schedule. I am now considering alternatives.
Come on Amazon, WAKE UP and Catch Up!!!!
