      Very Disappointed!

      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 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.

Be warned this will only play movies you have created yourself.

      Does the job well

My only advice is to pack a VGA extender cable when taking your iPad to presentations as the accessory doesn't have much cable and sometimes venues don't provide long enough cables.

      Best Answer:

      Yes you can...as long as you are running the new iOS 5 operating system. Turn on the SMART Board Yes you can...as long as you are running the new iOS 5 operating system. Turn on the SMART Board, unplug the projector cable from your computer, then attach the VGA Adapter to it and plug the adapter into your iPod Touch. Now you can view, demo, and discuss apps on the SMART Board. Just remember that you or your students will only be able to control the app with the iPod Touch. You can't use the SMART Board's touch capabilities for that.

It stands for Video Graphics Adapter (some call it Video Graphic Array) and you'll also find VGA sometimes used to describe the resolution of the output from the computer: e.g. "SuperVGA. etc." The connector is a three-row 15-pin DE-15 connector. The 15-pin VGA connector is found on many video cards, computer monitors, and some high definition television sets. On laptop computers or other small devices, a mini-VGA port is sometimes used in place of the full-sized VGA connector.
