The av adapter and the HDMI adapter can be used with iPad 2 and up. Most of the accessories only can be used with the iPad 2 and up. From the iPad 4 you only can use the lightening accessories.
Don't try other brands, because they never guaranty compatibility. I used my HDMI connector with my iPad 2 and works great. Since I do have Apple TV and a time machine I don't need any cable to view video on my tv.

Using the iPod AV Cable
Step 11Use the Apple iPod AV cable. This plugs into the RCA ports on your TV or VCR. This is by far the easiest method.
Step 22Connect the AV cable into your iPod. Plug the small end into the iPod where the earbuds would go.
Step 33Connect the red RCA plug. This goes into the right audio input of the television or VCR. The colors should match.

For the ipod touch, you can't use the simple AV cable that we all enjoyed with the older models. I have the 3G Ipod Video and love the ease and simplicity of plugging it in to my ipod and watching videos on TV. I also have an Iphone, so i don't have this luxury with this device.
There is a cable you can purchase that will allow playback with the newer models of iPod. You can check it out here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/520691-REG/Apple_MB129LL_A_Composite_AV_Cable_for.html
