Thank you, Bob.

I will be experimenting with my existing TV (non 3D and too large to fit on my desk) as it has twin HDMI inputs.

When running a slide show, wide panoramas will almost fill the screen, as do certain video apps, such as Netflix (but the video quality does not seem as good as the Roku output and the video output of other apps are of even lower quality).

That is all I need for putting iPad images on the TV, and of course it would work with our present non-3D TV, which has a digital input.

I didn't want to consider a screen larger than 32 inch, as my desk isn't big enough for me to be able to use it conveniently, and most of the manufacturers have apparently abandoned producing high spec 3D TVs at this size. They have moved upscale to huge screens. I did find one that fitted my needs, but it was over my budget. I'll have to see what's available at the Internet stores.
