    AV adapter cable too short and stiff-keeps disconnecting

    • Written by from miami

    nice idea BUT cable is too short and stiff and keeps disconnecting. even the vga connector has a longer more flexible cable. maybe you could make an extender to connect between the av connector and the ipad. by the way, bad placement of the power slot on bottom of ipad, not conducive to practical use. cannot comfortably hold/use ipad when relaxing. also possible fix for that is to make a power cable with wire coming out left or right side of the connection so we have flat surface of connector on bottom of ipad to rest it on. that would definitely reduce the number of cables that break or fray at that point.

    Must have

    • Written by from san diego

    I purchased this product along with the new iPad3 yesterday. I tried it with my HDTV and desktop monitor, in both cases it worked flawlessly and beautifully . It perfectly mirrors the iPAD and I found the picture quality excellent when playing movies. Contrary to one of the reviews that indicated lack of locking mechanism, there is a locking/ unlocking mechanism which I found very easy to operate.

    Does not work with iPad 2

    • Written by from Denton

    I am seriously about to trash all of my apple products! I bought this adapter before AirPlay came out. The current version of Flixster is still not working correctly with AirPlay even with the update that came out today (4/22/13). So I resorted to my old 30 pin to hdmi which use to work fine with my iPad 2. Now with the iOS 6 software it doesn't??? What kind of show are you running apple? That's absolute garbage. I can understand the the Flixster side which is probably one or 2 more software updates away from getting it right, but a genuine apple product that doesn't work anymore because of an apple software update. WOW! This is 2013....get it right!

    Worst Apple product ever

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    The connection is intermittent, it takes many attempts to connect either my IPhone 4s or the new Ipad. Previous cables were great, this one is simply bad

    Cool but not great

    • Written by from South San Francisco

    I have the 1st Generation iPad it only works on watching movie and movie app (Netflix). All others won't send to TV some only get sound but no video (Photo won't work). Youtube OK.
    I did updated the OS to 5.1

    I use it on my iPhone 4S everything send to TV even playing games but will not show in FULL SCREEN.

    Overall - I like it since I purchase this adapter mainly for watching the movie on TV. Picture quality depends on the movie itself. HD movies are great. I choose this adapter over the Apple TV because I use my iPad in different locations and all I need is to bring this adapter.

    Adapter works great

    • Written by from Plano

    Needed to project videos and slideshows onto big screen TV. Got this adapter and it works great. Videos displayed without a hitch. Slideshows gave me a little trouble. Talked to the Genius Bar and they diagnosed my slideshow problem as the Auto-Lock feature activating after 2 minutes of inactivity. I would have thought iOS would have recognized playing a slideshow would be viewed as activity, but apparently that's not the case. After changing the Auto-Lock timer to Never (at least for the duration of the slideshow) everything worked perfectly.

    Haven't had the need to use the charging side of the adapter, but that is nice to have if running in a kiosk mode and running a looping slideshow or video for hours.

    Used just a cheap HDMI cable with adapter. Everything I've read about HDMI cables is don't buy them from big box store. Huge profit on cables. My cable cost me $12. Its digital - they either work or they don't. Order a cheap cable off the internet and you're good to go.

    Now have all my photos and videos on my iPad 3 displaying on HD TV and projector.

    Will not work with my iPad 2. Period. Funny, my gals Kindle Fire HDMI would like a charm. Bought this and am sorely disappointed. Latest iOS and iPad 2. The box does not indicate any exceptions. HDMI should just mirror the screen, like the the Kindle does. I love my iPad but this is very disappointing for the highest priced, cutting edge tabs on the market. Ahum.

    I recently purchased the digital AV adapter and it works great. By plugging the adapted into my tv and my iPad 2, I have been able to watch Netflix, view all of my photos, watch my own videos, listen to music, look at my calender... etc. I have not tried the connection with my iPhone 4, but as of now, I am very happy with the adapter.

    Not as advertised

    • Written by from OTTAWA

    This does not work as advertised, or, at best, the description is misleading.

    On my iPhone 4, this will not mirror the screen on the TV but rather only selected apps will do so. In fact, the only two I've found that work are the built-in video app and the Netflix app. (Nice one Netflix!) Ones that do not work are VLC (it thinks it's mirroring but nothing shows up on the TV), Youtube, TED talks, Safari, or any others that I've tried.

    I didn't pay a small fortune for a cable that depends on Apple's good graces and app developers to work. I thought I was getting a cable that would allow anything that displays on my iPhone 4 to display on a TV.

    I just want to entertain my kids while at a hotel. For this price I can go out and buy a whole video player.

    Bought it today, will try to return it tomorrow.

    Does exactly what it says

    • Written by from Cupertino

    Not sure what all the fuss is about? I am able to connect my iPhone 4S to this adapter to a HDMI cable to my TV and my phone display is mirrored on the TV. I am able to play slideshows (with music) and videos from my photo album (which is what I needed this for). I also able to show videos using the Youtube app and show games like Angry Birds.

    The only complaint (and it's a small one) is the pictures do not completely fill the TV screen (there are small black bars above and below). That's probably due to the fact that the iPhone outputs in 720p and my TV is 1080p?

    Everything I need....

    • Written by from Sunnyvale

    I bought this for my new iPad. It has exactly everything I need.
    it is a new model with mechanical latches so the connection problem described by some other users is gone. You can turn it and shake it, it won't disconnect.
    It mirrors my iPad in all the conditions, I can watch movies (Netflix works just great), see pictures and play games.
    It is also very useful when you visit family or friends and you want to quickly show them pictures on a big screen, everybody has a TV with a HDMI input.
    The picture quality is amazing, I believe it constantly streams in 1080p and if you have good HD content you'll get the same quality as a blue ray.
    I've used it quite extensively so far and didn't find any issue yet. It works great also with my iPhone 4S. It is really cool to connect my iPhone to the TV and have HD quality movies on the big screen, I love it.
    With the iPad first generation it has limited functionality but I can still use it to watch movies with iTunes or Netflix.

    Works Flawlessly

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    I was intimidated by the negative reviews but went ahead with the purchase anyway. I needed this adapter to play iTunes rented movies and TV Shows off my iPad 3 onto my Panasonic Plasma 46". I have played SD content so far (Skyfall) but i have checked the specs of my plasma and it support HDCP so there should be no issues with protected HD content.
    Both picture and sound were great.

    worth the pricey tag for me...
