    Just what I was looking for

    • Written by from Middlefield

    This little adapter is just what I needed. I was looking for something that could mirror my iPod Touch 5 onto a flatscreen TV via HDMI port, yet something portable that didn't require Wi-Fi. Now I just purchased mine, but so far, so good. I like the fact that there is a lightning port so I can keep my iPod fully charged while on the big screen. However, I do agree that this adapter is overpriced because it does not come with an HDMI cable. I am currently using a 4-foot HDMI cable that I had lying around for quite awhile.

    Absolutely awesome

    • Written by from Buffalo Narrows

    The ability to connect my iPhone or iPad Air to my tv is absolutely awesome! Yeah it's pricey, but well worth the money... 100% recommend for movies! or viewing photos etc! I bought an extra one for my parents to use in the RV and they love it!

    Is the adaptor buggy or is it 7.1 ??

    • Written by from Springfield

    Using with 5S and iOS 7.1
    Only audio and photos are playing on the TV

    For video it is all white screen, with an AirPlay not available line on the TV,
    This message not on the phone, the phone is playing the video

    So is this a bad adapter, or bad 7.1??
    ( HDMI cable OK, used it with iPad successfully & 30 pin AV converter

    No Hi-Def mirroring

    • Written by from MIAMI

    I was hoping that by some miracle it would mirror at least at 720p but the image is 4:3 all the time except when playing from the video app which will show whatever the resolution is and max out at 1080p. Using this to mirror anything else is a waste of time because the picture looks cropped. Fix it Apple!!!!!!! Haven't you wasted enough of your customer's time and money with false advertising????

    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 for me.

    • Written by from Oakland

    I have an iPhone 5s with Sony Bravia and it looks awesome in 1080p. It does mirror, until I play a video. Don't know if it works differently with other models between iPhones and tv's, but it might be the case.
    I never give a 5 star on anything unless, it does the dishes, takes out the trash or does the laundry for me.

    Overpriced and reduced functionality - who wants to buy mine?

    • Written by from Sidcup

    This adapter is very overpriced and I was disappointed that it did not do what I wanted it to.
    It took me a while to get any video output from it to my 50'' LG and would only work when I pad 4 was properly switched on and off again. Sleep mode did not help.
    Anyway, I eventually managed to get some video and audio to the screen but to my surprise both Sky Go and Virgin Media TV Anywhere do not work. I believe this is down to the content providers and not Apple, so just bear this in mind when deciding to purchase or not.
    The weird thing is that audio was output to the tv before the I pad was booted. Video sometimes is missing and requires iPad reboot.
    You Tube and other content works fine, but not for what I wanted it for.
    BBC I player and ITV player work but I can do that anyway via the tv direct.
    Web browsing not really any good either, as you need to look at I pad anyway to use the touch screen.
    A waste of £40 for me. Adapter going on eBay tomorrow

    BEWARE you have to remove the case to use this

    • Written by from Kimblesworth

    I have a full leather smart case and the lightning plug end of this adapter is thicker than normal and cannot be plugged in while you have the case on so not only did I spend £95 on a case and cable but I cannot use them together. Come on apple this is not the kind of thing we expect from you. The cable works brilliantly once you remove the case. Mirroring and also streams we'll from apps

    Power is not supported

    • Written by from somerville

    The video works great - When I plug in the power cable it tells me its not supported, and it doesnt keep the device charged.

    My netflix movies need to be watched in two settings... Irritating.

    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.

    AV Adapter works with....

    • Written by from Cambridge

    Following other reviews, I bought one of these and this is what it works with so far.

    FilmOn - works perfectly with all channels displaying on TV
    TVCatch Up - works perfectly, although this program not as good as it once was
    BBC iPlayer - worked perfectly on programs I tried
    ITV Player - worked on programs I tried
    Demand 5 -worked on programs I tried
    Sky Go - not working
    Sky News - worked
    Netflix - worked on programs I tried
    Blink box - worked on programs I tried
    YouTube - worked on the ones I tried
    General Apps - seemed to work OK

    SkyGo comment - you can appreciate why Sky do not want this to work as they are selling their own Internet product called Now TV and would lose revenue - they are a commercial operation and money is King, so if you are after something for nothing from Sky, then it's a no-no. I do not work for Sky, by the way. I have been with them since day 1 as a customer when they were investing millions and operating at a loss and their investments are now paying off, good luck to them.

    Screen resolution - as other posters have said, you can see the same size as the iPad (iPad Mini in my case) and I could zoom slightly using the TV screen options, but could not get it to fill the whole screen. Don't know about 5.1 sound, but the sound came thru the TV stereo speakers OK which is all I need.

    Would not recommnd for traveling + way overpriced

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Using on my iPad Mini (1st gen), Vizio HD TV.

    Pros --
    - when it works, it looks great on the TV; total mirroring and decent resolution
    - audio through the HDMI, full screen video really is full screen
    - is small and very portable for traveling

    Cons --
    - PRICE. US$49 is ridiculous, AND you have to buy the HDMI cable on top of that. I get that Apple is trying to encourage people to use Apple TV instead but it's just not practical for people who want to use this adapter for travel and portability
    - connecting the adapter and HDMI to the TV and iPad are finicky -- it didn't recognize the device when I turned my TV to the HDMI channel and then connected. Have to either turn off the TV or change to a different channel, THEN connect the iPad, THEN turn to the HDMI channel
    - biggest con for those who are using this for travel -- many hotels control the TV functions (i.e. menu, access to channels and component/input options, etc.) -- I tried using this adapter at two different hotels and both times, they wouldn't recognize the iPad as being connected. So this may be hit or miss (but mostly miss for me)

    Excellent video output quality from iPhone 5s to HDMI. Super easy to use. A brilliant addition if you travel frequently since you can load up your phone with videos and then playback in HD quality on any HD capable TV.
