    Works great but the thunderbolt cable needs to be longer......

    • Written by from Kenosha

    I just bought Pioneer Z150bh and installed it in my 2007 Honda accord and I love it!!!!!!!!!!! I can mirror my apps on my iphone 5 on my pioneer stereo and it works absolutety amazing!

    The main reason for my review is to share what needs to change with the Lightning AV Adaptor. The cable works great but the lightning cable to connect to iphone 5 is way to short and I can't find anyone on the internet that sales an extension.
    -Basically my problem is I have this hooked up to my stereo and then it run out of my dashboard and connects to my iphone 5 so i can display apps on my pioneer stereo. But the problem is I don't want to have a huge adaptor hanging from my iphone 5. There needs to be a Female to Male Thunderbolt cable created so i can hide this huge adaptor behind my stereo.
    Apple if you're ready this can you please work on making a Female to Male thunderbolt or a longer thundbolt end on the AV adaptor-say like 2-3 feet so we can hide the adaptor and have just the thunderbolt cable coming out to use. Thanks for working on this!
    Other than that this adaptor has worked flawlessly so far. I give it 4 start b/c it didn't completely meet my needs.

    Does exactly what it says it does. As soon as I plugged it in EVERYTHING on my iPhone appeared on my TV's. Great product.

    • Written by from Timnath

    Hi Valeri,
    You said that you were disappointed that you didn't get 1080 HD with this cable on your iPad 4th gen and that people should read the specs on that item before buying. That might be true but this cable doesn't claim to give that quality on that device. It specifically states in the product description that you can get that video quality with the iPad 5. I just wanted to point out that you are not comparing apples to apples and you might be disappointed over something that was never possible and never claimed as a possibility in the first place.

    Good but...

    • Written by from Sept-iles

    With iphone 4s it does what you expect it to do in general but when you watch a movie, you can't change language! There is no way to change the language when plugged in and if i change language before i plug it, it switch back to original language by itself so i guess my choice of language is not important for apple!!! So i paid 6$ for nothing and we had to go rent the movie at the video store... I will not rent a movie on itunes again unless they create a solution fir this issue.

    Works as intended

    • Written by from rochester

    I bought this yesterday and connected my ipad to my bedroom 720 HD plasma TV and the picture was great (Netflix, HBOgo, Itunes). A couple of minor issues were that the display was not a full screen on the TV unless I was playing videos like on Netflix. Also the price is high but what's new there... I still have to try it on my 1080 LED TV to see if the picture quality would suffer but so far it has done exactly what I needed.

    Worked OK for awhile

    • Written by from Greensburg

    I also have reached the stage where the adapter only works when I manipulate the cable just right. Otherwise, no sound, no picture or sound, or fuzzy picture. If you aren't supposed to bend the cable tail, then make it rigid so there's no chance of creating a short. Poor design for the price. When it works, it's great, but it takes a few minutes each time I use it to dial it in. And then, don't bump it!

    not supported?

    • Written by

    I have had the adapter for about a week, it works with hdmi and audio out for about 2 minutes, then it says accessory is not supported by iphone, and stops sending audio, and video out. Then I have to turn my phone off, and on again for it to work (for 2 minutes) Horrible

    Doesn't work well

    • Written by from Durango

    The item works when it want, and its so so anoying because if you want to watch a movie or a sitcom you can't because if the device recognize the signal the tv not. You can see the blue light at the clock but the conection fails... 50 bucks? I feel very very cheated...

    Help

    • Written by from Russellville

    The lightning to HDMI works great for my TV and for my new laptop computer but I purchased it for a projection unit and that unit has no HDMI. Is there something I can connect between the HDmi and the projector units to get sound and video? If so please let me know, Thanks in advance.

    Awesome for Sling Adapter (Dish Network)

    • Written by from O fallon

    I have an Iphone 5, Dish Network, and a Sling Adapter attached to the Dish DVR. Using the IPhone 5 Dish app I can watch any show that's live on my Dish Satellite or watch any saved movie! When I travel I can plug my iphone into any TV using this Lightning to HDMI cable and watch all of my shows! I also like watching Vevo from my IPhone on a TV since YouTube blocks the Vevo content on Blu Ray Players and 99% of TV's. The TV resolution for the HDMI output on the IPhone 5 is awesome! I did notice that some content does not display in 100% fullscreen. The Dish app displays the content in 98% screen with no distortion. I have a Panasonic plasma TV and it has not caused any black bar burn in.

    Works Great

    • Written by

    Plugged in my iPhone 5 to my TV and it's as easy as that! Both audio and video are clear. I've used it for slideshows, movies on my phone, and Netflix streaming so far. This will be perfect for streaming movies over LTE to any hotel HDTV. It does seem a bit costly though.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Tustin

    Does exactly what is says it will. Looks good on the TV. I love that when you play a flying game, you get the pilots view of the surrounding area etc. on the TV and the instrument panel on the iPad Mini screen!

    This also comes in handy when working on a stop motion video. It's a lot easier to see the onion skin on a big TV then try to watch on the iPad Mini screen.

    It's great that you can keep the device charged while watching on the TV.

    Good functionality limited by poor quality

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I got this a little less than a month ago and initially liked the ability to view content streamed to my phone on the big screen in my home theater using it hand held and navigating to a variety of content. However, it's developed a short or something so that it's very finicky in when it works. I can no longer navigate content in my hand and have to lay it down rather gingerly and finesse the cable so that it transmits signal. For $50 is should be more durable and work well for more than a month.

    Amazing product

    • Written by from Alexandria

    Just got this so I can watch Netflix on business trips and it linked up immediately and works great! I have tried it with both my iPhone 5 and iPad Retina and both resulted in clear and full HDTV, amazing picture and sound. I highly recommend this product.

    Really good adaptor. Downloaded movies on itunes, put movies in mini iPad connect to tv. Great quality watching movies with it. Plus it mirrors the mini iPad. My daughter connects iPad to tv and play her favourite apps, games or movies. Price seems high but worth the buy.

    Disappointed

    • Written by from Staten Island

    I work in television and have some downtime between shows. I'm surrounded by monitors and wanted to put on Netflix through my iPhone 5. I have an apple TV (carrying it around would be a hassle opposed to a cable.) The airplay and the netflix app work great on Apple TV. Sometimes on the apple tv netflix takes a second to buffer and to get to a clear hd picture but with this cord there was never a clear picture streaming Netflix, great wifi connection and all. Just a jumpy picture from time to time and even looked SD. I hope other people have better luck than I, but I'm going to have to return it unfortunately. A bad picture drives me crazy and I can't get over how a hard line isn't up to par with a wireless connection.

    Burnin display on the iPad 4 retina

    • Written by from Dedham

    I just bought the lightning to HDMI adapter for my iPad last week. The device works great and the picture quality is amazing. I primarily use it to plug in my iPad to my TV and watch Netflix. The other day I noticed that when I went to go to another app after unplugging the adapter from my iPad that Netflix was burned into the center of my display on the iPad. When using the Netflix app while using the adapter, when the video is playing it is only playing on the tv and the iPad has the generic Netflix logo with the red background. Is there a way I can eliminate this? Is this a Netflix app thing or an apple thing? Any advise would be awesome!
