    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.

    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)

    It does work with SOME on-demand services

    • Written by from EDINBURGH

    I pondered for a while whether to get this cable or not, as I really wasn't clear which on-demand services it was compatible with. After visiting a store to ask the staff, it seems there was a little confusion at their end too, which probably isn't Apple's fault per se.

    Basically, this cable will only mirror the full audio/video of on-demand apps if the app-maker/content-creator allows it. I've tried it with a few different services and, contrary to what one other commenter here says, it does actually work with iPlayer. Well, I watched a range of TV shows from my iPad Mini on the big screen, no issues, but that's not to say there won't be some shows that won't work if there is rights-related issues.

    I tried it with LoveFilm, only the audio worked. With 4oD, nothing worked at all. Luckily, the main player I wanted this cable fore - Eurosport Player - does work with it.

    So yeah, if you're looking to stream content from on-demand players to your TV, just bear in mind some work, some don't.

    I'm giving it 4 stars because it's mostly fine for my needs, and it does actually work for content stored on the device itself, as well as YouTube and the likes. I just wish Apple would put a warning somewhere in the product description explaining the issue with on-demand - I bet a lot of folk buy this cable only to be disappointed.
