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.

      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??

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.

      If you buy this for Netflix, forget it!

      Finally after years and years I wanted this, I went to the AppStore today and told them I need a converter to mirror my iPad/iPhone screen to a projector, and t Finally after years and years I wanted this, I went to the AppStore today and told them I need a converter to mirror my iPad/iPhone screen to a projector, and thus I bought the lightning to vga converter for almost 60€ and as far as Netflix is concerned, it’s useless! As soon as the movie begins, I get only subtitles on projector, not the actual movie. Obviously they have banned movie mirroring. This is outrageous!
