    I have TiVo stream set up and working and it works great. The specs say that TiVo stream supports 1080i and 1080p. What I can't figure out is if I buy a lightning to HDMI adapter, what resolution will go to the TV.

    My goal is to be able to take a TV out on the deck and rather than run a cable out to it and a cable box, I hope to use the iPad over wireless and just buy the lightning to HDMI adapter.

    Just don't want to drop $50 on the adapter if it's not capable.

    You can't do this without jailbreaking your iPad.

    Rats. I have a TiVo mini that I can drag out on the deck, but then I have to run a ethernet cable out there. At that point I could just run a coax and a cable box.

    You could use a WiFi bridge instead. If you get a good signal you should be able to sustain a single stream just fine. And a lot of the new bridges are powered by USB, so you don't even need power except for the Mini itself.

    What is the distance? I used a wireless HDMI and HDMI splitter off a Tivo HD to get tivo out to my screen porch. More recently it has become my kitchen tivo. You are mirroring so it isn't a replacement for a mini, but it does the job.
