    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.

    Disappointed.

    • Written by from Coconut Grove

    I am an AV tech of twenty years experience.
    I work for a university.
    We bought some of these for our academics to present lectures from their iPads.

    We will not be rolling this out.
    After 2 hours of various tests on two cables we have not seen any output.

    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!

    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!

    VERY DISAPPOINTED : (

    • Written by from Success

    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.

    Stopped working after upgrading to 7.1.1

    • Written by from Dunbarton

    This worked great until I updated to 7.1.1. Sometimes it cuts in and out like it has a short. I see the video for a second or two at a time, but then the screen goes black even though the video is still playing on the phone. It will also be working fine and then all of a sudden go to a blue screen with a message "Not Supported," yet the video is still playing on the phone. This was a very expensive adapter, which I've only had about 6 months. I visited an Apple Store and they were no help because it worked fine in the store, but that is PRECISELY THE PROBLEM. SOMETIMES IT WORKS AND SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T!!!! Please fix this!!!! I expect better from Apple.

    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 do what it claims

    • Written by from Grose Vale

    I have the original iPad and purchased this adaptor for use with it. I was assured it would work OK.

    WRONG.

    It will play video but does not mirror the screen, so cannot show blogs or other websites

    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.
