    Does not play iTunes movies - rubbish!!

    The cable allows you to mirror iPad is play but does not play any movies rented or purchased on iTunes because they are hdcp protected. I have 2 hd tvs, plasma and led, both less than 2 years old, both do not support hdcp. Apple suggest that the solution is to buy a new tv. Very nice :-(

    Not supported

    Bought my iPad 3 and adaptor last Thursday. I get the message 'not supported' but it still does work.....apparently you get this message with the old adaptor, so DJ's sold me the old one. Also couldn't get any picture on the TV until I turned Bluetooth off on the iPad.

    Works Perfectly on iPhone 4 and Ipad 3

    Perfect use for a hard connection to HDMI. For those having issues, perhaps you have a bad run of luck? ;)

    Does not work with iPad 3

    I bought this to replace the AV cable version, but I now want to use it and when I plug it in, it states "Accessory not supported".

    Bummer, waste of money and am on holiday with family and cannot plug into TV.

    DAV cable works great

    I connected my new DAV cable from my television to an iPad 1, iPad 2, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch. Hardest part was finding the TV remote to switch the HDMI connection to the right port. Successfully tested a combination of Netflix, Keynote, picture slide show and videos on each device with great success. I'll try plugging into the projectors at work tomorrow.

    It works perfectly!

    I hooked it in to my iPad (3rd Generation), then my onkyo a/v receiver, turned it on and viola! It worked perfectly. Watched the first episode of Breaking Bad that I downloaded from iTunes!

    Read before you buy!

    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.

    Awesome Product Works Just As Stated

    Ive read all the reviews about this cable not working with various apple products, and some advice for others reading reviews saying that, all you need to do is update your iPad/iPod/iPhone to the latest iOS and it should be fine. I bought this to stream video via an app that I downloaded from the web onto my tv from my iPad. Plugged it in, and I got a Not Supported error on my iPad2 with an old iOS. Plugged in my updated iPod4 and it streamed fine, updated my iPad2 then plugged it in again, and it streamed fine, perfect in fact. So word to the wise, check everything is updated before thinking it won't work.

    Thanks apple for a perfect product that is just what I wanted ! :)

    Apple Digital AV Adapter

    I have had this adapter for about 6 months and I think it works very well with my iPhone 4 and iPad 2. It does mirroring on iPad 2&3 and plays movies, music, and slideshows on an HDTV via an HDMI cable. It also has an integrated 30 pin slot on the bottom so you can charge your iPad or iPhone while using it. Overall, I think that this is a great product for the money and is very useful!

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

    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.

    Tricky at first, but great once we got it going

    I had first purchased this to use to connect our ipad to our tv. Had I done a little more reading I would have seen that it wasn't compatible with our ipad version. Then, I tried to plug it into my husband's iphone4. When I plugged it in the phone said not this accessory was not supported with my device. Great. I had all but given up when I decided to try my iphone. Plugged it in. worked just fine. Realized my husband's phone has never had a software update and mine has. Not sure if that was the difference but glad we tried.

    Doesn't do what it says on the tin.

    Bought this today with the intention to hook my iPad2 up to my hd tv, unfortunately most of my apps do not display on the tv when all is connected - including love film instant, sky go, 4OD amongst others.

    Apple you shouldn't really say..... "Put your slides, films, photos and everything else that fills your iPad or iPhone 4S screen on an even bigger screen — your HDTV. The Apple Digital AV Adapter mirrors exactly what you see on iPad or iPhone 4S so that everyone in the room can enjoy it on your widescreen TV, video projection screen or other HDMI-compatible display.* The Apple Digital AV Adapter also supports video out for iPad, iPhone 4 or iPod touch (4th generation)."

    Also when I connected my iphone4 only YouTube displayed properly. Would recommend giving this one a miss!

    Works fine

    Some of the reported problems are probably "user issues." It worked fine with my iPhone4S mirroring Pandora and music, and then a YouTube video. Seems to do everything it is supposed to do. That said, there may be certain apps that have limitations, but I can stream ESPN video from my iPhone to a TV where I have no cable, but only a 3G+ cellular connection.

    Works as advertised.

    Plugged it in and worked on my 4s and iPad 2. I am not sure what the others were complaining about. I has to turn the monitor off then back on when I plugged it in but I expected that.

    AV adapter cable too short and stiff-keeps disconnecting

    nice idea BUT cable is too short and stiff and keeps disconnecting. even the vga connector has a longer more flexible cable. maybe you could make an extender to connect between the av connector and the ipad. by the way, bad placement of the power slot on bottom of ipad, not conducive to practical use. cannot comfortably hold/use ipad when relaxing. also possible fix for that is to make a power cable with wire coming out left or right side of the connection so we have flat surface of connector on bottom of ipad to rest it on. that would definitely reduce the number of cables that break or fray at that point.

    Excellent but a little over priced

    This is a very good adapter for students that have a flat screen tv in their room. At first it didn't work but after a little tweaking it worked perfectly. The downside of this adapter is that you not only do you have to spend $40 for the adapter but also another $20 for the HDMI cable. This is still very good for turning a 10 inch iPad screen into a 26 inch viewing area, but it will still be very great for larger tvs too. Hopefully in the future apple will have price cuts on this item.

    No 1080p video

    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. :(
