    Quality product.

    This does what it says on the tin - it mirrors your iDevice onto a TV screen. It works with the vast majority of Apps, including games and the built-in Videos app, the latter allowing you to watch movies in crisp 1080p.

    However, some content providers (people who make films and TV programmes) do not want their programmes displayed just anywhere and, therefore, the developers of any apps that might display this content (e.g. Sky Go, Channel 4, Lovefilm) may well block you from doing so.

    If you are reasonably bright, and take 5 minutes to think about the revenue implications, you will be able to see why these content providers & developers might choose this option, and therefore why Apple were compelled to provide it for them.

    If not, tough luck - you will just have to accept the fact, or write to the makers of the programmes you want to stream and, if you're persistent enough, you will find out directly from them why they don't want you to do this.

    But don't blame Apple - that's just childish. This device works exactly as described and intended.

    Fine with Netflix

    I thought this was a bit expensive but I needed it so got it anyway.

    I hadn't realised that there were issues with certain apps not working with this adaptor.

    I bought it for mirroring my screen and mainly for watching Netflix on my HDTV.

    For Netflix it works fine. In Netflix while choosing a film, the HDMI output shows a full screen Netflix logo, while playing the film the HDMI shows the movie as you would hope while the iPad screen shows a static Netflix logo.

    Great

    Just what we need, mirror your lightning connector apple device on an hdmi equipped screen. A lightning port on the adaptor allows you to charge/power your device while you see it on your big screen. Maybe surfing which beats any pc for size! Very handy adaptor in my opinion. Of course, you could mirror your device with an Apple TV device but this cable adaptor saves connecting to the network and of course, can easily be used on a friend's TV (simply connect to an hdmi socket, need an hdmi cable of course) to show pictures etc.
