    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.

    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

    Disappointed in extreme

    • Written by from Emsworth

    I project through VGA connection via iPad or iPhone, and I get a full screen size from my OHP on full zoom.
    I project exactly the same item using lightning converter to HDMI and I get a nice picture, but half the size.
    It seems from the posts here that that is that. Such a shame.
    But if anyone can help?

    Rebecca's review

    • Written by from churchstoke

    I have used this cable to connect my iPad air to my tv. From the reviews I read it do not work on Iplayer, itv player apps and so on. However, this cable connected such apps to my tv in full screen view (the apps can be viewed on TV despite what others say) The only down side is when using none tv apps it is not full screen viewing on my tv (50inch)

    Good and Bad

    • Written by from Castleknock

    Firstly - Overpriced, what's new, all Apples accessory products are overpriced, that's a given.
    Secondly - Some program's, Sky Go ect, will not work. To be fair this has nothing to do with this device or indeed Apple, this is because the likes of Sky and others do not want to allow you this freedom for a myriad of reasons, not Apples fault.

    I am more concerned that the device works as advertised generally and here I find it to be a bit temperamental. The ideal scenario is I hook it up to the TV, launch the program and watch the video, full screen on my TV, but this does not always happen. Sometimes the video will as I said play fullscreen on my tv but not show the video on the iPad, the iPad screen will show a grey screen with a TV screen outlined. This is what I want.

    Other times with the same video I will get what is called Mirroring, where the I video I am playing shows on the TV and the iPad but the video on the TV will be at a much reduced size and not upscaled at all. There does not appear to be a setting that will allow you choose either of these sceanarios, it's just pot luck, this I feel is unacceptable. To be forced to watch a video at a reduced size when I know full well the device is capable of better is infuriating.

    It breaks too quick :(

    • Written by from London

    To invent an Apple Lightning Digital AV Adapter is a good idea but to make its cable too short is absolutely bad idea that's why it breaks down too quickly :(

    Does the Job

    • Written by from Gravesend

    I bought the smallest lead in the world solely for streaming Netflix and Amazon prime on a larger screen, It does this to a very high standard.
    Both are full screen and the HD quality is very good.
    I took a star off as at £40, its extremely expensive!

    Quality product.

    • Written by from London

    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.

    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.
