Do not expect 1080p HDTV quaility with this DV HDMI

Beware if you want to stream on demand!
I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. Be aware that none of these applications will work when connected via HDMI to a display. You will receive a notification that states the app does not support.
Possibly ignorance on my part, but to me, this was a big plus point of buying the adapter in the first place. I contacted 4od and received the below response when I asked why there was no support:
"Unfortunately the reason Airplay no longer works is that we don't have the rights to broadcast all our shows using Airplay, so this feature is not enabled."
Hope this helps. …

Waste of Money! Does not Work!
I would give this zero stars if I could. I hooked my ipad air up to my brother's television (he has Direct TV) with the lightnin I would give this zero stars if I could. I hooked my ipad air up to my brother's television (he has Direct TV) with the lightning digital av adapter and couldn't get past a message stating that due to an agreement with other cable and satellite providers I could only watch videos or anything else on my mobile device. So if you are interested in using your Xfinity to Go app to watch tv away from home on anything but your ipad or iphone, forget it.
A lot of money wasted on an expensive gadget that does nothing. …

Seriously over priced - Apple TV much better solution
I tried a friend's adapter, but just could not justify spending 3x what it is actually worth to me. In the end I bought Apple TV w I tried a friend's adapter, but just could not justify spending 3x what it is actually worth to me. In the end I bought Apple TV which gave me all the functionality including BBC iPlayer plus a lot more, for not much more than the cost of the adapter. It is better to be able to connect wirelessly, without the hassle of cables and my experience of Apple lightning cables is that they don't last that long. …
