    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

    No Dolby Digital 5.1

    What is the point of technology moving backwards?
    This lightning adapter does not allow 5.1 passthrough - the 30 pin adapter for ipad 2 and 3 will. Disappointing.

    Beware if you want to stream on demand!

    I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. Be aware that none of these applications will work when connected via HDMI to a display. You will receive a notification that states the app does not support.

    Possibly ignorance on my part, but to me, this was a big plus point of buying the adapter in the first place. I contacted 4od and received the below response when I asked why there was no support:

    "Unfortunately the reason Airplay no longer works is that we don't have the rights to broadcast all our shows using Airplay, so this feature is not enabled."

    Hope this helps.
