I purchased a movie and this adapter to create a backyard movie night for my sons birthday sleepover party. I connected my iPhone to the projector and was met with the following message, "the connected display is not authorized to play protected movies". I bought the movie! You sell the adapter! Don't waste your money.

I even tried using a different VGA cable just to rule that out as a cause for the problem. The Adapter is garbage and a complete waste of money.

      Does not work with Netflix

      I have the iPad Air and bought the Lightning to VGA Adapter so I could watch Netflix on the big screen while on my treadmill. When I hook it up, I get an error I have the iPad Air and bought the Lightning to VGA Adapter so I could watch Netflix on the big screen while on my treadmill. When I hook it up, I get an error that says it's not supported. I am able to watch VUDU movies with it so I know I do not have it hooked up incorrectly. I've read tons of reviews and see I'm not the only one with this issue, yet I've seen nothing from Apple on how to fix it. $40 for a product that doesn't work. Really??

      Doesn’t work !!

It’s literally making me so mad right now that I can’t take it back or switch it out. You guys should really outline the fact that you can’t watch Netflix with this thing. Only reason I specifically bought THIS cable is because I was at Walmart and they weren’t stocked with HDMI cables. I wouldn’t recommend buying this at all and I really wish I had read these reviews before I bought it ��
