    Does not "mirror"...not on iPhone4

    • Written by from Kitchener

    Just bought this product litterally 1hr ago on the assumption it would play all that I have on my phone (mirror as they say). I tried to get the saleperson to do a quick demo to verify that it would work as expected, but no luck, so back home troubleshooting, not enjoying, and now writing. I'm on a iPhone4, and although this unit supports the device as per this website, it clearly only supports "APPLE" verified APPS. Meaning, living here in Canada, there are a tremendous amount of streaming video available from the various networks via their own APPS. I've restarted, reset, rebooted, but I cannot get video from these at all as they don't have the special window that says "this video is playing on your TV", only sound. I also cannot get video from Safari. Of all the APPS I have that succesfully play video on my phone, only the Movies, Podcasts, Photos, and Music will actually play through the HDMI cable to my TV. I'm very disappointed as I was hoping to swap this out for my cable for a bit and save some money, seems that won't be the case. It does not actually "mirrror" your device, at least not mine, its seems the APPS have to be designed to accept the signal and push it out or our phones more likley are only designed to work between APPLE to APPLE products? AUGH. Don't even get me started on the new "MAPS" application they pushed out. Seems the past few months have been worse for users than ever before. Frustrating. To be Returned TOMORROW and I guess I'll just be happy watching ALL my stuff on my phone. I don't really feel like paying 50$ for something that only works for "some" and not all, that's not mirroring anyway.

    It just works!

    • Written by from Seri Kembangan

    I was spooked from buying this based on the bad reviews. But I took the plunge anyway as I needed to mirror my ipad for presentations. For my experience, it just works. It mirrors EVERYTHING from videos, to photos, photo streams, ALL of my apps and even audio. Remember that it uses HDMI so one cable for video+audio.

    So really, it works flawlessly.

    (I'm using iPad 3rd gen, Retina, with iOS 6.0.1)

    "mirror whatever" is false, "mirror some" is correct

    • Written by from Raleigh

    It does not "mirror whatever is in your iPad". I tried to mirror some downloaded pictures from an iPad3 and it did not work. It made me look very bad cause I (plus a crowd) was truly depending on the "mirror" advertising.. It only works on videos. So if you are depending on it to "mirror", TEST IT FIRST or you will be in for a not very pleasant surprise.
    As far as I'm concerned It's false advertising.

    It Works Fine So Far

    • Written by from Dayton

    I've read a few reviews that made me worry, but I haven't experienced anything bad so far. It mirrors everything on my screen pretty well. It's cropped, but it mirrors everything. When I click on a youtube video, however, the video utilizes the entire screen. It works fine, but I'm hesitant to give it a full five stars because I haven't yet tried it with every program.

    Short life

    • Written by from Corinth

    Worked great, However, I have had this adapter for three months with very limited usage and the cable (short as it is) already shorts out leading to intermittent mirroring. Cannot find any information regarding a warranty period. At the price, this adapter should work flawlessly for multiple years, not multiple uses.

    Works amazingly with HD Movies and Rentals

    • Written by from Charlotte

    Bought this last night to watch a Rental from iTunes and it worked perfectly on my 55" Samsung 3D-LED TV. Also played The Avengers that I bought a digital copy of. No black bars on the sides or tops - it was perfect. A must buy if you have a 2nd or 3rd gen iPad and iPhone 4 - 4s.

    Ok with iOS 5, not with iOS 6.0.1

    • Written by from Ringgold

    I upgraded my iPhone 4S to iOS6 even before thinking about purchasing this adapter. Later I decided to purchase it, and did so just as iOS 6.0.1 was being released. To my surprise, this adapter still does not work with my iPhone 4S and iOS 6.0.1. The adapter does work with my 1st gen iPad and even my wife's iPhone 4S that still has iOS 5.1.1. I have a great deal of content on my phone that I would like to see on my large flat screen TV, however due to iOS 6 I'm not able to do so. To be honest I am quite disappointed and somewhat frustrated.

    Hdmi output sound no video

    • Written by from Media

    Sound but no video is a communication issue between tv and your device's app. As in. A new tv(last 2 years tops) should work perfectly for any app. I had this problem. 3 yr old LCD. 1 app WATCH ESPN is flawless. Safari partially worked. Other apps had sound and no picture. Even home videos. A 1 yr old QUATTRON tv mirrors every app EXCEPT nfl network which states it will not allow hdmi out. All this said IOs 6 UPDATE DOES NOT WORK AT ALL WITH HDMI OUT.. OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!! Fix it now.....oh. please

    Work great on iPad-must restart.

    • Written by from Davenport

    I was skeptical after reading negative reviews on this product using IOS 6, but knew there had to be a simple answer. You MUST restart an iPad on IOS6 before this adapter will work. After a restart, it works flawlessly, putting the home screen and everything else I tried up on the plasma TV, and porting sound to the TV's speakers. Videos fill the screen and look great.
    It is not Apple's style to ignore a problem such as this, and they didn't. It took about a minute to figure it out and restart my iPad 2. Shame on you people who just plugged it it and had a tantrum because it didn't work instantly, just returned it and wrote a disgruntled review.
    Must have never plugged in a different PC keyboard and had to restart for the computer to recognize it. Apple products spoil us with world-class ease of use!
    Thanks for a great product. My only suggestion is to spell it out on the instructions that the restart needs to happen. Less returns and bad reviews, more happy customers.

    Works well on original iPad for video-out only

    • Written by from Lawrence

    ...because that is all it supports on original iPad, along with photo slideshows. I think Keynote supports it too but I never used it.

    This is an awesome thing for the traveler because most hotel TVs now have HDMI ports. Unfortunately many hotels disable the ability to switch the TV's input source, hoping you'll spend $10 or so for a blurry lo-def old movie. If you can disconnect everything from the back of the TV aside from HDMI obviously, then it'll usually work. I also have the AV adapter for older sets with no HDMI, or where the HDMI is disabled; sometimes you can get a signal through the AV input. Some hotels like Aloft and some Westins have a box with all kinds of inputs but these are pretty hit-or-miss; at the Westin Atlanta airport, the HDMI did not work but the AV inputs did.

    I was going to buy a refurb iPad 3, but now after reading reports that iOS 6 breaks video output I think I'll stick with the old one, which can't even run iOS 6, and video is about the only thing I use the iPad for anyway. If/when this problem is fixed then I'll replace it with an iPad 3, not the 4 or mini, no need to re-purchase two new video-out adapters or 30pin->Lightning adapters; just what I need, one more white expensive little thing to lose or forget in a hotel room... already spent enough on new power supplies.

    Works great!

    • Written by from Hudson

    I'm not sure why others are having so many problems. I hooked by 3rd generation Ipad to my LG tv using the HDMI cable and it worked perfectly. The screen on my ipad transferred to the entire big screen on the tv when I watched a movie. You can pull up anything. I say it's a great product. Easy to set up. Just another great apple product.

    Before dogging the product, make sure it's not something else if you have a problem.

    Adapter will not work on the iPhone five if you have any type of cover on it. Poor engineering design by Apple.
