    Useless and doesn't work as described... for me.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Does not work with my iPhone 4 (6.1) connected to my early-2011 Sony Bravia tv. Videos from the "Videos" app work just fine and look great on the tv, but absolutely nothing else (YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, NHL Gamecenter Live, photos) shows up on the tv. I get a black screen, sometimes with the audio, but never with a picture. What are some people doing differently that causes this to work for them? I feel jipped out of 40 bucks considering it apparently doesn't do what the description says (unless you only use Apple's "Videos" app.)

    Works as advertised.

    Plugged it in and worked on my 4s and iPad 2. I am not sure what the others were complaining about. I has to turn the monitor off then back on when I plugged it in but I expected that.

    DAV is Not Ready for Prime Time

    • Written by from Doylestown

    My out of the box experience was poor. I tried the Digital AV Adapter on two different displays: Asus Monitor & Sony Bravia TV using an iPad3. The results were similar.

    The display is not truly mirrored. The display is application specific and controlled by the application. The display and can be significantly different than the iPad display. I could not find anyway of controlling the output "mirror" with the iPad-3.

    All issues I encountered appeared to be software issues.

    HBO GO, MAX GO & SHO Anytime displays a screen on the HDMI display that says that they are sorry but the applications does not currently support HDMI display.

    Netflix works the best but while a movie is playing the iPad3 shows a red "splash" screen while the movie plays on the HDMI display...not a true mirror.

    Epix crashed the HDMI display. I was able to hear audio through the TV & monitor but no video with any application or main iPad3. Power cycling the iPad3 resolved the issue.

    Does its job and does it well

    • Written by from Urbana-Champaign

    I recently started to use this AV adapter to watch Netflix on my TV with my iPad and it has been working great. The image and audio quality has always been impeccable. This also goes for all other video playing applications such as YouTube. While playing games, the display quality is also great and the latches on the adapter help keep it plugged in when I'm turning or rotating the device, which was a flaw of the older adapter. Although the adapter does do a good job of displaying photos on the TV, too, I prefer to browse my photos on my iPad (but this is just my preference).

    Other people have complained that the adapter would be better had it just been one cable that plugs straight into an HDMI port, but they forgot that the iPad should be plugged in and charging during TV-watching marathons (I like to watch more than one episode at once), so the way it is currently set up is ideal, in my opinion.

    All in all, this digital AV adapter does its job and does it well.

    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.

    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.

    Great product

    • Written by from Calabash

    This adapter is perfect for connecting a Ipad 3 with the 30 pinconnector to a tv.Because you connect to theTV with a HDMI cable the sound is also sent to the tv.

    Just purchased HDMI and AV adapter for my IPAD 3rd generation. I was all excited to play my videos and movies on a large flat screen TV. NOT! I do not understand how this has so many mixed reviews that it works. I tried multiple HDMI inputs on the TV..nothing. I even got a pop-up when trying to play a newly purchased movie and it said the movie is protected and not authorized to play on this device.

    The AV adaptor connects to the tv via the HDMI cable. Works well with my Ipad2 - I can watch movies I have rented from ITunes. Sound and picture quality is great. Perfectly mirrors all my apps. Unfortunately Lovefilm is not supported. But no other problems so far.

    Works for everything I tried with iPad 3

    • Written by from League City

    A lot of reviews are saying it doesn't work for certain apps. So far I've tried it with a 1080p iTunes movie download (Hunger Games), Spotify, and the Watch ESPN app. Everything has worked flawlessly so far with my 2006 Samsung DLP HDTV. No issues whatsoever. I did set it to stretch mode for my TV. Now I can watch my college football!! Very happy with this product!

    So, this thing does what it says, however, it won't play HBO Go, which is 75% of the reason I purchased it. I'm returning it :(

    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.

    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!

    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.
