    Waste of Money! Does not Work!

    • Written by from Salem

    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

    • Written by from Salisbury

    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.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Toronto

    I bought this on July 18 of this year & did not open it & use until August 1st. It worked well for a short amount of time & now suddenly it does not work. It has the quality of a dollar store charger. For the price it's a real rip off for something that lasted less than 2 weeks long.

    Stopped working after less than a dozen uses

    • Written by from Cambridge

    I got less than a dozen uses out of the Lightning Digital AV Adapter before it quit working. As an apple user since the mid-80s, all I can say is this is yet another example of the demise of Apple quality. Well it was marvelous while it lasted!

    Worse Than My First Betamax Player In 1982!

    • Written by from Kettering

    I bought this adaptor cable - which, at £40 works out at £10 per inch - in order to watch TV and flms streamed over the Net from Amazon Prime Instant Video via my iPad Retina through a Yamaha RX-V671 A/V decoder on to my LG HDTV. I had been trying to use my laptop but in both Chrome and Mozilla there was continuous buffering and stuttering. Before purchasing, I checked with Apple and Amazon who both stated the product would work in 1080p with surround sound. Well, the picture displayed on the screen when "browsing" is reasonably High Def but only in a reduced-size 4:3 ratio in the centre of the TV. However, once you select a programme through the Amazon Prime App and hit "play", the screen expands to 16:9 but with all the definition of a muddy puddle. All movement becomes just a confusion of pixels which, on my 47" screen, are at least quarter of an inch square. Basically, it's unwatchable. So, switch to Safari instead of the Amazon app - no difference except now we are back to continuous buffering again. With a 14Mb/s internet speed I should be getting good quality video - instead I feel like I have been transported back 30 years to the foggy dawn of Betamax accompanied by the cat sitting on the "Pause" button on the remote every 10 seconds. This really is marketing at it's most cynical. This is 2014, this is not rocket science, but I feel thoroughly cheated.

    Doesn't work

    • Written by from London

    I just bought this adapter, I tried connecting it with my existing hdmi cable and it was fuzzy and so I bought a new hdmi cable. Turns out it's not the cable. The outcome is the same. The adapter is connecting to the iPad, I hear the sounds, see the mirror image of the pad, however, as soon as it is plugged, the TV screen starts to fuzz, then the TV screen colour changes green and then yellow, gradually and very quickly, then it stays like that. Can anyone tell me what the problem is; my TV? Settings somewhere? Cos I really cannot get it to work.

    Nothing HDMI about it!

    • Written by from Cartersville

    This is the shoddiest excuse of an HDMI adapter I have ever seen. While it may transfer audio or video via an HDMI, what you get on your screen is not worthy to be defined as High Definition. Do not waste your money on this product.

    Lightning Digital AV Adapter broke in three months!

    • Written by from wildwood

    Very upset that this adapter broke after only three months, sadly i didn't even use it more than fifteen times within the three months. Tried it on two iphone 5s's, iphone 5c, ipad air, and four different HDMI cables. I just did that to make sure some setting didn't mess it up, cause it used to work for all of those devices, but not anymore! Do not buy and if Apple stands by their products, i would like a new adapter or a refund! I have the receipt, bought only three months ago!

    Lightning Digital AV Adapter

    • Written by from Tom Price

    Just received this adaptor hoping to play my AFL TV on my tv but only get audio. Don't know if it's the adaptor, the app being protected in some way, or my inability to get my settings right.

    So far the adaptor is a dud. Maybe someone can tell me if there is a fix or I've just bought the wrong product to get my AFL fix.

    Do not buy - waste of money

    • Written by from St Helens

    I'm writing this review after just buying this adapter: I really should of read the reviews first! To begin with, it is totally overpriced. Secondly, it doesn't work for the apps, from Sky to others, completely rubbish! Avoid wasting money on this product, I will be taking mine back ASAP.

    Doesn't work with iPad Air

    • Written by from Panama City Beach

    The cable does not work with the iPad Air. I bought it to work with my DISH Hopper via Dishanywhere when traveling.
    Sound connects, but there is no video. I tried via a receiver and directly to two HD HDMI equipped TV's. The same result
    I also tried several input signal and still no video.
    iPad by itself connects without a ptoblem to Dishanywhere.

    That makes Apple 2 for 2 for expensive junk.
    I also bought a lightning SDHC card reader. It also failed to perform as described.

    Works fine a first

    • Written by from Tecumseh

    I purchased this to use to connect to my projector in my classroom. It worked great for about 3 months than all of sudden it stopped working entirely. Supposedly this has to do with the ios update? Now I am unable to use my iphone or my ipad with my projector in my classroom. Thanks a lot apple.

    Airplay Audio broken by iOS 7?

    • Written by from Abergavenny

    A quick search of the Apple forums will lead you to conclude that iOS 7 has stopped this accessory from functioning as expected. Previously (and also with the 30 pin connector) it was of course possible to plug HDMI in for video and stream audio to an Airplay speaker. You'd have the "Content is playing on the TV" blank screen on your device, your moving image up on the screen, and the audio coming out of your Airplay speakers.

    Now, however, I find that when you try this, the video freezes on the projected screen, and will play only on the device itself (while the audio plays out of the Airplay speaker).

    Alternatively, you can watch your video up on the screen… but in complete silence! Way to go, Apple!
