    It is IOS8, NOT the Adapter.

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    This Adapter worked fine on IOS 7. It will not work on IOS8 with an iPad2. I spent almost two hours today with an Apple technician to whom I was kicked up after talking to two other people. He was great, and is sending me another 2nd Generation Adapter, as well as an Adapter that will work with my iPhone 5. He was unaware of this problem, and took the time to see and read these comments that you have all made here. When I have received these two parts, try them, and whatever the outcome, I am to contact him again. In the meantime, he is referring this problem to the software engineering people at Apple, and presumably it would be corrected in the next IOS8 release. (My iPad2 is running on IOS 8.0.2 (12A405).

    Paid $40 for the hdmi adapter and after a week all I get is device not supported message. I expect a lot more from such a successful company. DO BETTER APPLE!

    Won't Work with IOS 8

    • Written by from Stuart

    Actually this is for HDMI connection to a 30 pin iPad or iPhone, not as described as AV. When you look at the end view it is HDMI. Now, since I upgraded to IOS8 on both my iPad and iPhone, my Apple 30-pin adapter fails to work when I hook up to either my iPad or iPhone to my Epson projector. I get a message that "this accessory is not supported". I never had this issue before using my iPad 3.

    Prior to IOS8 this was not a problem. I am sorry like a lot of other Apple users that we upgraded to IOS8. There were lots of bugs and this one has not yet been addressed. I would gladly roll back to IOS7 if I could to solve this problem. I see teachers and other heavy users of the iPad for presentations using Keynote are really upset that they did not know about this before upgrading to the new IOS. I hope that an Apple rep sees this note as I have tried without fail to either launch a complain via the Apple site or even call. The phone prompts only want to guide me to one of the major product areas and not provide help with an accessory.

    Works Brilliantly with iPad 2

    • Written by from Puchong

    This adapter rocks and it’s a good alternative to Apple TV, in my opinion, if you don’t intend to pay so much but wants to get everything on your iPad 2 over to your HDTV.

    I bought this adapter in less than 24 hours ago and it works perfectly with iOS 7.0.4 that’s running on my iPad 2 currently. Just like its product description, it mirrors every single app on my iPad 2 onto the HDTV and when I say everything, I meant everything. I didn't encounter any issue while using this adapter as it was simple to use and it just works.

    Personally, this was a great investment for me, considering the price that I got it for.

    30-pin Digital AV Adaptor

    • Written by from Murfreesboro

    Just bought it (2 weeks from order to delivery) and it simply does NOT work. My iPad, my iPhone, NOTHING !!! I've got an iPod, an iPad, and iPhone. What's the hype?? These devices are really second class devices (junk) once you really take a look at them. Their performance, usability, control, practically everything is second rate. I've learned my lesson and learned it well. Slowly but surely winging myself from ALL Apple products.

    Useless with TNT App on iPad 2

    Did not allow play of TNT show episodes from iPad 2 to my TV. Ads played but actual show video only played audio with blank screen.

    NO help from apple!

    • Written by from Belleville

    It says its not supported no matter how many times I connect it. I called Apple support and it was no help what so ever too. I just got the response: "look online". Do not even touch this product if you have anything older than the latest piece of plastic. I looked up the requirements and it said minimum of IOS 5.1 and that is what I'm running so whats the deal? and I have a device with the 30-pin. I am glad to see that I am not alone with this adapter. It's not even worth rating with stars but I have to in order to post.

    Works well but expensive for my taste

    • Written by from Burlington

    I'm pretty convinced the bad reviews are from people who have lofty expectations about what this is supposed to do. Several apps such as Youtube and Amazon Instant don't "connect" through the HDMI. That's just how it works, some services just don't play through the HDMI. You would have to complain to the media servicer because there's nothing wrong with the cable.

    HDMI Adapter

    • Written by from TEMPLE

    This is just.... the worst. Rarely works the first try. Magical touch required to operate properly. Sometimes I can press on the connection at the ipad and it *might* send the signal to the TV, but most of the time it's a no-go. I have never been so frustrated with technology as I have been with this wretched thing. Horrible, simply horrible.

    Another cripled Apple product

    • Written by from Manchester

    This will only play videos downloaded from iTunes. It will not play any other videos. Not even YouTube. Apple should have at least listed this in the specs.

    AV Adapter useless on iOS 7.1.1 with IPAD 2

    • Written by from Kaunakakai

    Until the upgrade, the AV adapter was working great!. Now we get a black screen and the TV puts out a MSG stating there is no connected device. Could you FIX the issue and send out an update to allow these adapters to work again. Apple products are not cheap, so we as consumers expect quality. FIX the problem at hand and please don't come back and tell us we need to purchase a newer adapter to correct this problem. That would be unacceptable!

    30 pin connector

    I have upgraded my iPad to the latest pallet invention and of course as all of yo know, the 30 pin does not stream netflix. My wife never updated her phone from 2 changes ago, and the 30 pin ran netflix flawlessly! Looks like apple wis gonna return my money! I hate apple products!

    I was so excited when I received my adapter, so much so that my husband and I planned an all day netflix marathon when we were getting a foot of snow. We started using it and within minutes it would cut out or say that it's not supported. We were kinda bummed out thinking I had bought a bad one, so a few weeks later we got another one and it did the exact same thing. I am very disappointed and wish I could switch brands all together.
