    Robert,

    As A&H have realeased an iPad app then in my mind the iPad becomes part of the iLive family just like a surface or a laptop running editor. This forum seems the ideal place to discuss the pro’s & con’s of the iPad2 and its original for running the MixPad application.

    Personally I haven’t made a decision yet on which one to purchase and hoping that as the iPad2 is realeased in the US earlier than in the UK some US users might be able to share their experiences…

    If you don’t want to read about Apple gadgets then I suggest you steer clear of this thread.

    Gary.

    Shure – iPad – iLive (hmm, something familiar here…) ;)

    On an Gig yesterday i heard a women say – hey – this must be from apple – looking at the Name of the surface “iLive”…
    Very funny indeed…

    Just saw something on the new iOS update – seems like us early adopters might have some joy from the improved Java handling in 4.3 – I assume that MixPad is Java based so that will give us a performance improvement!

    So… has anyone taken the plunge and bought an iPad2? Keen to hear if there’s a noticeable performance improvement (i.e. Can you multitask? Has it solved the low memory warnings?).

    Picked up my iPad last night from BB. Was on a waiting list for 9 days, they finally received a second shipment.
    Purchased the mixpad app, connected right away.
    I had 4 apps running on the iPad and also had my laptop connected wirelessly, everything runs smooth.
    No out of memory issues and connected using my Airport Extreme router as well.
    Checked connection speed for the ipad on my router statistics, and was only reading 39 MB per sec.
    No issues, but the mixpad seemed to take a few seconds to refresh while scrolling to the end of the channel list.
    Excited to use it for my next show.

    Well, after some further testing and walking around my house with the laptop and iPad connected, no out of memory issues. One thing though, it’s time to buy a new router. Moving to other post.

    What router are you thinking of? I’ve been looking at prices for the Belkin suggested by A&H, but as mentioned elsewhere they don’t have a ‘pro’ reputation (I don’t want to be too worried about it’s longevity in my rack!). Keen to hear if anyone else has had the same success as Chris with running multiple apps!

    Going to try the Belkin. Was on the many different discussion sites with dlink and netgear, and nothing I read suggests any of those would work. Cisco has a new one out for 179. US dollars, that I am considering as well. I have some time to do this before my next show, so I will report back with hopefully good news. I was even more disappointed that my decked out laptop wireless card does not even pick up 5ghz. [V]
    Certainly a frustrating process…

    Thanks for being the bunny on this Chris, looking forward to hearing how you go (I’ll hold off on my decision until I see how you go).

    Just to have a extra option:
    TPLINK TL-WR1043ND router supports IGMP v1 and v2.

    I use a netgear router and it works just fine.

    jgrooms – does your Netgear have IGMP support and are you running it with Multicast turned on? Have you tried running it with more than one client connected (Laptop/Mixpad for example) with no performance issues (occasional meter freezing etc)? Good performing routers under those conditions seem hard to find so if you answered yes to both of those questions then what model are you using?

    Cheers
