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.

The picture wasn't amazing but it was clear and it mirrored my iPad perfectly. Sometimes my iPad would not register the adapter or it would be slow. But, I was okay with all of that until my adapter stopped working completely with the new update. Now all I get is a black screen if I plug the adapter in. I would not recommend this product until Apple comes out with an update to fix this bug. …
