I've got a huge collection of iTunes movies that I have for my kids. Would like to figure out how to use an apple device to plug into the Av ports. Suggestions? I have an iPhone 6+, new iPod and an iPad air.

There's 2 ways to do this. 1st is get an appleTV for your truck with the HDMI to composite adaptor. Use the trucks WIFI as your network to AirPlay from your IPhone to your ATV. You're just using the trucks network to connect the 2 devices not to stream. This will run you about $100. The 2nd way is to get the lightning to HDMI and the HDMI a to composite adapters. This will run you about $70.

Do you use a Mac or PC? I remember sharing a few of my iTunes videos with a friend using a thumb drive. That may also work. Not sure if cue would play them in that format.

This sounds like a great idea - I presume since no "Data" is being used, it should be wifi alone. Where did you get the power for the AppleTV? I don't want to lose my AC plug since it seems to get used a ton. Thoughts???

Hello, if you also want to play iTunes purchased videos on other devices, you could use a tool to help you convert iTunes videos to common formats so that you can play it smoothly. I had ever used a software called DRmare iTunes Video Converter to help me and I could play them on other devices. Hope it will meet your needs.
