    doesnt work well with iphoto with iphone 4s

    • Written by from Guadalajara

    i just bought it and tried it with iphoto on the iphone 4s and it does not mirror the screen
    the description says:
    "Use the Apple Digital AV Adapter to mirror whatever’s on your iPad or iPhone 4S screen — apps, presentations, websites, and more — on your HDTV or HDMI-compatible display in up to 1080p HD (movies play at up to 720p)."

    it is a false statement

    i wanted to show the diary on the big screen and it just didnt work i could only see the iphoto logo.
    Seems to work well with other apps so far

    Inconsistent connection

    • Written by from Gwynn Oak

    Dislike: Inconsistent HMDI connection from an iPhone 4 and worse from an iPad 2. The connection behaves as if there is a short in the cable... very frustrating! Returned the first purchase, because I thought the product may have been returned damaged; however, second purchase behaved exactly the same. I believe Apple should consider a redesign; great idea, but simply does not work well.

    This dongle is really fantastic.
    I used it with my iPhone 4S and my iPad2, it does everything I need.
    I think it is a new version since it only works with iOS 5.1 and it comes in a new package.
    it perfectly mirrors my devices and I can watch movies on the TV (with HD content the quality is great).
    For games is the must-have accessory. I'm looking forward for receiveing my New iPad, I'll get rid of my gaming consolle and use the new iPad when I want to play games on the TV.
    Totally worth the 39 bucks.

    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.

    This adapter won't play a HD movie bought via iTunes from iPad

    • Written by from Portland

    Paid 18 bucks for a HD movie from iTunes using an iPad and was hoping to watch it on a TV. Instead iPad displayed error. "Cannot Play Movie. The connected display is not authorized to play protected movie."

    What gives? I bought the movie and the adapter from Apple.

    - Disappointed Apple customer.

    Buy the newest version.

    • Written by from Newark

    I puchased a New iPad (iPad 3rd gen.) the week it was released. I decided a week later I needed the camera kit, digital AV adapter, and and extra charger. The digital AV adapter was posting an "not supported" message and after I dismissed the message it didn't work ( as the support page suggests). I was able to contact support after a 40min on and off call I asked if there might be a newer version ( the Apple support team member refered to my digital AV adapter as a 1st gen. model ). I went to an Apple store and they exchanged it no questions asked. Anyone in the market for this adapter should buy the one in the box not the one in the hanging bag. First its compatible with most devices, second the size of the 30 pin adapter is smaller than the previous which is good if like me you have your iPad in a Otterbox type case. Once you have the right one its smooth sailing. So get the right one.

    Read before you buy!

    • Written by from Milwaukie

    So I was given this adapter, which was awesome, however I assumed that it would mirror everything on the screen which it does not with certain apps ( purchased movies, Hulu, Netflix, etc). No big deal, because it still played the content I wanted with Netflix and Hulu. However, the movies I purchased wont play because they're protected..... All I want to do is have some buddies over, get high, watch casa de mi padre, have a few laughs, eat a ton, and pass out but Apple and Hollywood has betrayed my trust, ruined my plans, and have defiled the purpose of this adapter with its BS legal restrictions.

    Does not work with iOS6

    • Written by from Novi

    I loved this product prior to upgrading to iOS6. It now does not work with my iPad (3rd Gen) or iPhone 4s. I do not recommend anyone buy it until Apple resolves these issues.

    Does not work with iOS 6.

    • Written by from Cancun

    When I had iOS5, it work perfectly; after I installed iOS 6, I can not use it anymore on my New iPad 3. The screen on my TV now plays everything with a bright pink color and is very annoying to watch something or even mirror my iPad screen on the TV. And I know is not the adapter is the iOS 6 because it works with my iPhone 4, to watch Netflix or a movie that I have on my phone. As a consumer I feel really very sad, for all the mistakes Apple has made in the past months. Hoping they can fix it soon.

    Another disappointed customer.

    IOS 6 update removed ability to watch or project videos

    • Written by from Redding

    As a teacher I depend on my iPod Touch, iPad, and now my iPhone to carry my videos to classes, meetings, and workshops. The upgrade apparently resulted in the loss of the ability to show through TVs or projectors (my principle use). I am angry and rushing to find my DVD players and all of my DVD source material to return to an earlier age. THANKS FOR THE SCREW-UP APPLE

    No 1080p video

    • Written by from Hurst

    I'm seriously disappointed I can't play my 1080p movies from my ipad to my 1080p HDTV plasma using the HDMI cable. This would have allowed me to play an ipad movie in all its HD glory when I visit my parents and mother-in-laws house too, but Im a graphics guy and playing 720 on a 1080 screen is unacceptable. I really dont want to lug around my blu-ray discs to get 1080p. The only solution is vudu service until apple fixes this 720 limitation, but vudu will only do 1080 if you have 9mbps wifi, not a problem at my parents house, but mother in law doesnt have fast enough internet to stream 1080p. My plea to apple and boycott is fix this limitation. Why should I waste money buying itunes 1080p movies if im limited to 720p playback when i use this HDMI cable to a 1080p HDTV. REGRET buying the cable, the best buy rep told me it would play 1080p since i have an ipad 3. :(

    Stopped working after ios6

    • Written by from Suffolk

    I have used this product for over a year with no problems. It no longer works after I installed iOS 6. I used to watch HBO go and Cinemax go from my iPad 2 to any tv all the time but they stop supporting iPad vid out about 6 months ago. HBO says they hope to support this in the future which is strange since it used to work.

    Just what you were hoping for but better!

    • Written by from Hoover

    This little device works wonders with your new iPad! It will mirror just about anything you want your iPad to mirror. One of my apps even has 3-D TV viewing (which is really cool!). Many people CLAIM that this device doesn't work with iPhoto, but I am here to tell you that IT DOES! Those "foolish" people just didn't turn on the switch in the "in app" settings for iPhoto that allows TV mirroring.
    Secondly, this device is perfect for high profile presenters. With keynote and this adapter, presentations are fun and easy to do in any class setting (whether you are a "lazy" PowerPoint History teacher who makes back to back notes or a high profile top notch Engineering Presenter). Also I recommend the keynote remote app alongside keynote if your also going to get this adapter. If you are thinking of getting this product, then I say GET IT!

    Before installing IOS 6.1 my AV adapter worked perfectly. However, since updating to IOS 6.1 I receive "accessory not supported" message when using the AV Adapter. Apple please fix this bug that seems to have been created and directly connected to the IOS 6.1 update.

    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.
