    Works fine for me.

    I have an iPhone 5s with Sony Bravia and it looks awesome in 1080p. It does mirror, until I play a video. Don't know if it works differently with other models between iPhones and tv's, but it might be the case.
    I never give a 5 star on anything unless, it does the dishes, takes out the trash or does the laundry for me.

    Overpriced and reduced functionality - who wants to buy mine?

    This adapter is very overpriced and I was disappointed that it did not do what I wanted it to.
    It took me a while to get any video output from it to my 50'' LG and would only work when I pad 4 was properly switched on and off again. Sleep mode did not help.
    Anyway, I eventually managed to get some video and audio to the screen but to my surprise both Sky Go and Virgin Media TV Anywhere do not work. I believe this is down to the content providers and not Apple, so just bear this in mind when deciding to purchase or not.
    The weird thing is that audio was output to the tv before the I pad was booted. Video sometimes is missing and requires iPad reboot.
    You Tube and other content works fine, but not for what I wanted it for.
    BBC I player and ITV player work but I can do that anyway via the tv direct.
    Web browsing not really any good either, as you need to look at I pad anyway to use the touch screen.
    A waste of £40 for me. Adapter going on eBay tomorrow

    BEWARE you have to remove the case to use this

    I have a full leather smart case and the lightning plug end of this adapter is thicker than normal and cannot be plugged in while you have the case on so not only did I spend £95 on a case and cable but I cannot use them together. Come on apple this is not the kind of thing we expect from you. The cable works brilliantly once you remove the case. Mirroring and also streams we'll from apps

    Power is not supported

    The video works great - When I plug in the power cable it tells me its not supported, and it doesnt keep the device charged.

    My netflix movies need to be watched in two settings... Irritating.

    Works fine a first

    I purchased this to use to connect to my projector in my classroom. It worked great for about 3 months than all of sudden it stopped working entirely. Supposedly this has to do with the ios update? Now I am unable to use my iphone or my ipad with my projector in my classroom. Thanks a lot apple.

    AV Adapter works with....

    Following other reviews, I bought one of these and this is what it works with so far.

    FilmOn - works perfectly with all channels displaying on TV
    TVCatch Up - works perfectly, although this program not as good as it once was
    BBC iPlayer - worked perfectly on programs I tried
    ITV Player - worked on programs I tried
    Demand 5 -worked on programs I tried
    Sky Go - not working
    Sky News - worked
    Netflix - worked on programs I tried
    Blink box - worked on programs I tried
    YouTube - worked on the ones I tried
    General Apps - seemed to work OK

    SkyGo comment - you can appreciate why Sky do not want this to work as they are selling their own Internet product called Now TV and would lose revenue - they are a commercial operation and money is King, so if you are after something for nothing from Sky, then it's a no-no. I do not work for Sky, by the way. I have been with them since day 1 as a customer when they were investing millions and operating at a loss and their investments are now paying off, good luck to them.

    Screen resolution - as other posters have said, you can see the same size as the iPad (iPad Mini in my case) and I could zoom slightly using the TV screen options, but could not get it to fill the whole screen. Don't know about 5.1 sound, but the sound came thru the TV stereo speakers OK which is all I need.

    Would not recommnd for traveling + way overpriced

    Using on my iPad Mini (1st gen), Vizio HD TV.

    Pros --
    - when it works, it looks great on the TV; total mirroring and decent resolution
    - audio through the HDMI, full screen video really is full screen
    - is small and very portable for traveling

    Cons --
    - PRICE. US$49 is ridiculous, AND you have to buy the HDMI cable on top of that. I get that Apple is trying to encourage people to use Apple TV instead but it's just not practical for people who want to use this adapter for travel and portability
    - connecting the adapter and HDMI to the TV and iPad are finicky -- it didn't recognize the device when I turned my TV to the HDMI channel and then connected. Have to either turn off the TV or change to a different channel, THEN connect the iPad, THEN turn to the HDMI channel
    - biggest con for those who are using this for travel -- many hotels control the TV functions (i.e. menu, access to channels and component/input options, etc.) -- I tried using this adapter at two different hotels and both times, they wouldn't recognize the iPad as being connected. So this may be hit or miss (but mostly miss for me)

    Excellent if pricey

    Excellent video output quality from iPhone 5s to HDMI. Super easy to use. A brilliant addition if you travel frequently since you can load up your phone with videos and then playback in HD quality on any HD capable TV.

    It's value, not price, making this iDevice accessory a must!

    By using the Digital AV Adapter with our new iPad Air, my wife was convinced of its value AND usefulness when she was able to almost effortlessly connect it to the HDTV and watch daily Hong Kong soap operas not yet available for another year on Canadian cable TV.

    I cheekily only gave this 4 out of 5 stars because now I have to buy an iPad Mini with Retina Display for her so I can get the iPad Air back for my use... ;)

    Simple yet sophisticated

    I'm not sure why some users are having difficulties ... as soon as I connected the adaptor, I was able to watch home videos, view photos, and best of all, watch movies. The image quality is perfect on the movies as is the audio quality.

    Apple is awesome! Such a small little adaptor ... with such great possibilities!

    Rebecca's review

    I have used this cable to connect my iPad air to my tv. From the reviews I read it do not work on Iplayer, itv player apps and so on. However, this cable connected such apps to my tv in full screen view (the apps can be viewed on TV despite what others say) The only down side is when using none tv apps it is not full screen viewing on my tv (50inch)

    Used in movie theater and was great!

    We purchased this to stream a movie from the iPhone 5 onto a movie screen in a local theater for a birthday party. It worked great! The picture and sound were amazing, and you would have never known it was coming from an iPhone. Would highly recommend.

    Works great

    Not sure why so many have an issue with this. Yes, it's extremely overpriced but it works fine. I use it at least once a week to watch movies on my 50" plasma with no issues whatsoever. I've used with both my iPhone and my iPad.

    Product works as advertised

    I had read reviews of this and another cable of people claiming it did not fit even with the Apple case. Rather than order online I drove to the Apple store and asked them if I could test it there on the spot. Of course, they were offended at the idea that Apple would not make it compatible with their own case I as have on my iPhone 5s and iPad air.

    In short, it fit perfectly. I brought it home and it works perfectly on my HDTV.

    Do I wish the price were a bit cheaper? Sure, just like everything else I own with the Apple logo, so get over it. It's supply and demand. As more third party knock offs are made, perhaps you can take your chance with their junk. For now, I and others will pay the price and it works.

    Awesome!

    I do not understand the comments about this product not working? I also do not understand how people can purchase this product without reading the tech specs about it, and then coming on here and complaining about things that it won't do or why it's incompatible with their equipment, etc… when all they have to do is take a minute and read the tech specs. All the answers are there and they would save time and money to find out whether it would work or not with their current setup. This thing is awesome and has saved us from having to purchase another external device to play movies, TV shows, etc… since it produces HD quality for such things!
    Just do the research and enjoy, and/or save! Great product Apple…As usual!

    Quality product.

    This does what it says on the tin - it mirrors your iDevice onto a TV screen. It works with the vast majority of Apps, including games and the built-in Videos app, the latter allowing you to watch movies in crisp 1080p.

    However, some content providers (people who make films and TV programmes) do not want their programmes displayed just anywhere and, therefore, the developers of any apps that might display this content (e.g. Sky Go, Channel 4, Lovefilm) may well block you from doing so.

    If you are reasonably bright, and take 5 minutes to think about the revenue implications, you will be able to see why these content providers & developers might choose this option, and therefore why Apple were compelled to provide it for them.

    If not, tough luck - you will just have to accept the fact, or write to the makers of the programmes you want to stream and, if you're persistent enough, you will find out directly from them why they don't want you to do this.

    But don't blame Apple - that's just childish. This device works exactly as described and intended.
