      Great for teachers

I teach at the high school level and having to be tethered to a computer to show videos, presentations or photos was not practical. The setup was simple and to the point. Connected the Apple TV and VGA cable to the Kanex adapter. I have my Apple TV connected to a wifi network so I can use airplay on my iPad. The added feature of audio out is a great benefit when showing videos from my iPad. Picture quality is definitely not HD but it gets the job done. This is a great, small, lightweight product for connecting devices to a VGA.

      Using with my old home theatre projector

      At first I was a bit annoyed because when I had it hooked up with my Apple Tv... the Apple Tv was video flashing on and off at the projector. I found out later At first I was a bit annoyed because when I had it hooked up with my Apple Tv... the Apple Tv was video flashing on and off at the projector. I found out later it was because I was using too long of a VGA cable (50ft). Then I switch to a shorter cable (25ft) and the silly problem went away. Sorry it has been a great solution for not having a HDMI ready projector. I just use the optical out on the Apple Tv so I don't know how well the Audio Support works.

      Don't let the name throw you

      Apple thinks it's selling a Kanex ATV Pro X HDMI to VGA Adapter with Audio Support. The key phrase is "X". Got one and it was not an "X". Reordered the part and Apple thinks it's selling a Kanex ATV Pro X HDMI to VGA Adapter with Audio Support. The key phrase is "X". Got one and it was not an "X". Reordered the part and again did not get an "X". Wrote Kanex for help. They said that they no longer sell the "X". They said "The ATVPRO X is made specifically for Apple TV 1 to 3 generation. The ATVPRO X has HDCP Encryption which will block content like Netflix, HULU, etc. Normally schools use this model due to legal reasons.The ATVPRO is made specifically for Apple TV 1 to 3 generation as well. However this model doesn't have HDCP Encryption." I'm not a school so I didn't need an "X" anyways. Bottom line...it works fine for me but I thought that the "X" was something special for general Mac users, not really. BTW it appears that only the Kanex works in an Apple setup (Ipad/Apple Express/Apple TV/VGA projector)

      Used to work, 8.4.1 update breaks it

And they've now stopped working. It appears the latest apple TV update (8.4.1 at time of writing) breaks it - as soon as the adapter is plugged in (and i've tested with several), the apple TV light goes out and that's the end of the game. The appleTV works fine with an hdmi cable to a hdmi device, just not to vga via the kanex.
