    Requires Powered HDMI port

    • Written by from Eagle

    FYI - This device will not work on retina Macbook Pros or the new Mac Minis. It requires a powered HDMI port which are not available on those machines. Save yourself the time if you are trying to connect a Mini or MB pro retina.

    For what it is . . . . .

    The device works to a degree. It does not recognize HDCP and thus is basically useless. I downloaded a video from iTunes for my iPad. When I connected to my vga projector I kept getting a HDCP error and it would not play. Using it in the classroom with my iPad, it works with most of my appications and does a fair job.

    I would not recommend it for most users. There are less expensive ways to go that work much better.

    Cuts out intermitently

    • Written by from Cardston

    I hooked mine up to Apple TV in my classroom. The Apple TV worked flawlessly at home with just hdmi, but when I hooked it up through the adapter to my vga cable, it cuts out for about 2 seconds every minute or so. My projector gives a lost connection error while it cuts out. Hoping it is just a problem with too long of a cord (50 feet) like one of the other reviews said and I can fix it by hooking it up closer to the projector, but I'm dissapointed that I have to move my classroom around now to make this adapter work.
