    Not at all Steve Jobs approved

    • Written by from San Diego

    There is no way to fill your 16:9 screen with this. Totally unApple, per Steve Jobs like expectations. Totally disappointing. Will same happen for hdmi connector adapter for my last gen 17" mbp? Not sure I want to risk the funds.


    For $40 I would have expected full use if my TV, not just 30%

    Does not work as advertised.

    • Written by from Berkeley

    I tried the rca-out dongle first, and then returned it and tried the HDMI dongle, and neither one actually mirror what is on your screen. When I use a VGA-HDMI adapter on my laptop and plug it into my television, that works; it displays exactly whatever I play as if it were a duel monitor setup. With the iPhone / iPod the device only works with certain applications. iTunes, for instance, which is astoundingly picky about what precise resolution and framerate it will accept, and which format (MPEG4), so if you're trying to play an .mkv file on a third-party app, you're out of luck. It'll play on the device, but not route through the adapter. Unless you've got the time and technical know-how to convert your files to a friendly format in advance, do -not- rely on this product for "plug-and-play" convenience.

    Ipad to HDMI adaptor

    • Written by from Port Hope

    The adaptor only sporadically shows the Ipad screen on the television. It is not the HDMI cable or the TV as other computers work well with their own HDMI ports. When squeezing the adaptor, occasionally the screen on the Ipad shows on the TV. From other reviews this seems to be a manufacturing defect.

    Unbelievably poor quality for an Apple product!

    • Written by from CHATSWOOD

    Like so many others, I am shocked that Apple released such a defective product under its own brand name.

    Getting a connection established is touch-and-go at best, then it keeps dropping out.

    The slightest, most miniscule movement of cable/connector is enough to destroy the connection between iPad and screen, then it's back to try, try and try again to get a sustained link before it terminates yet again.

    Every time, we are advised that it is "not a supported accessory" - even though the Apple Store happily sold it to us!

    Utterly appalling product quality and almost unusable. Avoid at all costs!

    You are much better off using the VGA adapter. Contrary to expectations, it's a far superior product in every respect.

    Waste of money, don't bother. It's 50/50 if you get a dud or not.

    • Written by from Ballinalee

    Bought this From the apple store the day I bought my iPad. After I updated to ios7 I started to get a message. Cable not compatible with this iPad. It worked fine apart from needing to move the wire about a bit because it's not built very well. Very annoying because it is very expensive. Was watching tv on it during the mourning when I got back I get this message.

    30-pin digital AV adapter is a piece of junk

    • Written by from Melbourne

    Worked intermittently for short while then crapped out and won't work at all now! Bought new hdmi cable with gold contacts, no help! Sending back for refund, piece of junk! Researched internet for possible fix or work-around... Found COUNTLESS complaints about this device but nothing from Apple as to what they're doing to end this deplorable situation.

    DID NOT WORK

    • Written by from Spartanburg

    I was excited to get this and then was sadly disappointed that it did not work. I have been an avid Iphone owner since 2006 and love my iphone, but this saddened me. It did not mirror anything at all, just a black screen. When I purchased this item I thought I would need an HDMI cable, but the specifications did not say so. I spent the 40.00 for the adapter and an additional 30 on an HDMI cable all for it not to work:(

    Bummer

    • Written by from Westland

    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.

    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 NOT WORK WITH IPAD 2 AND IOS 6.1.3 DO NOT BUY

    • Written by from Dallas

    I bought this adapter, in person, at the Apple store in Dallas about a month ago, after discussing my equipment and my intended use. I have an iPad 2. The adapter worked flawlessly on what was my test run for switching all media rom cable to Apple TV. I could not realistically do that and handle all the media with my 2007-ish MacBook Pro (didn't support sound through HDMI, if nothing else) but that was okay because I intended to upgrade. So as step 2, I bought the MacBook Air last weekend and the thurdebolt AV adapter (which works poorly, at best), but still used my iPad running iOS 5 and its adapter without issue. Friday I upgraded to iOS 6 (6.1.3, to be exact) which rendered the thing completely useless. The TV and the iPad are connected, and they both reflect that, but no signal or sound. Why?! I can't downgrade back to iOS5 now, and since the upgrade in addition to the issues with the adapter, my painstakingly difficult process of converting over just my iTunes library to the Air (which, come on Apple, that's a basic, basic need for upgrades) was totally wrecked when I tried to sync the upgraded iPad to the library. Lost hundreds of songs, and ultimately had to wipe the iPad altogether and start again. Now I can't watch video at all through the iPad and the thuderbolt is sketchy, at best, and only really works when you physically hold the adapter into the thuderbolt post. How is this making things that "Just Work"?!

    When I plug this into my iPad 3/Retina, I get the "This accessory is not supported" message and it doesn't function at all. However, I've used it with my previous iPad (iPad v.1) successfully.
