Great for teachers
Purchased the adapter to connect an Apple TV to a VGA projector. I teach at the high school level and having to be tethered to a Purchased the adapter to connect an Apple TV to a VGA projector. I teach at the high school level and having to be tethered to a computer to show videos, presentations or photos was not practical. The setup was simple and to the point. Connected the Apple TV and VGA cable to the Kanex adapter. I have my Apple TV connected to a wifi network so I can use airplay on my iPad. The added feature of audio out is a great benefit when showing videos from my iPad. Picture quality is definitely not HD but it gets the job done. This is a great, small, lightweight product for connecting devices to a VGA. …

Using with my old home theatre projector

I found out later it was because I was using too long of a VGA cable (50ft). Then I switch to a shorter cable (25ft) and the silly problem went away. Sorry it has been a great solution for not having a HDMI ready projector. I just use the optical out on the Apple Tv so I don't know how well the Audio Support works. …

Not for long VGA cables!
I can't find any details on Kanex's website regarding the maximum length VGA cable that the ATV Pro can handle, but it's definitel I can't find any details on Kanex's website regarding the maximum length VGA cable that the ATV Pro can handle, but it's definitely limited. It won't push a VGA signal as far as a standard laptop video card. I'd say if your VGA cable is longer than about ten feet, you might run into odd video flashing issues. …

Horrible for AirPlay
This device downgrades the image coming from the ATV to the converter, which is fine it has to downgrade the signal in order to pr This device downgrades the image coming from the ATV to the converter, which is fine it has to downgrade the signal in order to project it on your old VGA display. However, when you AirPlay your device to the ATV the ATV does it's own downgrade on the signal coming from your iOS device, which it also has to do that since the resolution of the ATV is higher than the iOS device you are AirPlaying.
With that being said when you AirPlay through this converter the ATV downgrades the image, than the Kanex downgrades the image and on your projector screen is a tiny iOS/AirPlay image. It is unusable in a classroom or any business situation.
If you need this converter just to use the ATV for watching movies and ATV services, than it is fine.
If you need this converter specifically for AirPlay, look elsewhere. It is absolutely unusable for AirPlay. …
