      Unaware of limitations before purchasing

I wish I had known this before purchasing the connector. The Apple Store description says the connector will display slideshows and movies, but I didn't realize that was it...

      Very limited!

      Limited to certain apps and even movies that were purchased through the iTunes store are blocked from displaying. Apple should be more specific about this!

      Very Disappointed!

Not the case the movies are protected and therefore will not play on the T I bought this attachment thinking I could watch iTunes movies from my iPad on my TV. Not the case the movies are protected and therefore will not play on the TV. Apple have been a little misleading in their product listing saying you can watch movies - yes you can but only your own movies you have created - not iTune movies. This was one of the reasons I purchased the iPad for. On a good note they did refund the product very quickly when I returned it. Very annoyed though as they are still expecting you to purchase Apple TV. I did contact support and iTunes support but they couldn't help. The best help I received was from a staff memeber at the Trafford store who told me immediately that it would not be possible to view iTunes movies stored on the iPad on a TV.
