    Cordcutter here, minor issues

    • Written by Todd S from Flushing

    I cut the cord with a certain cable company (rhymes with Bombast), and thought this was the cat's PJs to use with my (rhymes with horizon) unlimited plan.

    It was — until it simply quit working in my iPhone 6 and my wife's iPhone 7.

    I thought the dongle might be defective, and initiated a return/repair with Apple.

    Further digging online (not via Apple) revealed a 12.1 issue/bug.

    A great Apple employee confirmed it. (After four calls to other employees/departments.)

    Updated to 12.1.3, and voila! It works again.

    $50 dongle versus $150 for cable? Priceless.

    Works with IOS 12.1.3

    • Written by Jeff C from Green cove springs

    I bought this adapter last week after speaking with someone at tech support. He told me the adapter works with 12.1.3, and it does. I've used it for a week now with no issues. I hope they keep supporting it with future updates...

    Solution: This Works ;)

    AVG Adapter working properly after ios12.1.2 update
    I was able to speak w/a Very Helpful Apple Tech and after much trial and error before speaking to him.. I'd almost given up. Grateful I Did't..

    1) Plug USB Cable into TV
    2) Plug USB Cable Into AVG Adapter
    3) Plug AVG Adapter Into Iphone's lighting port
    4) Power On TV set proper input eg. If USB connected to Input 3 select Input 3 on TV settings
    5) Leave Iphone Connected to AVG/USB Do Not Disconnect, but Turn Iphone All The Way Off/ Completely Power Iphone Down
    6) leave Iphone Powered Off for Several Minutes.. No More Than 5 is needed
    7) Power Iphone Back On While Everything Is Still Connected
    8) When phone is powered back on It will most likely prompt You to enter pass-code If You have set up lock screen
    9) Go to a site such as Netflix/ Hulu/ Youtube and select a Video.....PLAY!
    10) This Should Resolve ios.12.1.2 Glitch and You are Now Good To Go!
    Think Of It Like The Old PC Tactic of; Turning Your Tower All The Way Off.. Then All The Way Back On.. Like A Basic ReBoot ;)
    Good Luck ;))

    Works for Me

    • Written by George M from Charlottetown

    I bought this unit with the Apple-Belkin cable. Have downloaded and watched Netflix for a couple of months. Check your screen saver as it is not always overridden. Movies sometimes stop each time your screen saver kicks in - especially after the first one.

    Now works on iPad pro with iOS 11.4.1. Check the HDR setting.

    • Written by J L from Clarksville

    I saw the many reviews stating that the Digital AV product (HDMI adapter) doesn't work on iOS 11.4.1, but by 8/26/2018 that issue seems to have been worked out. I downloaded a movie from iTunes before playing it, but we still saw some video freezing on the TV about an hour into the movie. I paused the playback for a few minutes and the issue went away. I noticed that in the settings for TV (settings->TV->iTunes Videos there is a setting for HDR. There is a little notice that says HDR will not play via the Digital AV adapter. I don't know whether this is relevant to the video freezing issue, or whether that's the issue for other people who couldn't play back movies over HDMI, but perhaps downloading the SD version of movies will avoid video playback problems.

    Works with iPad running iOS 11.0.3

    • Written by Arthur H from Kailua

    I switched the HDMI cable to a different port on a VISIO smart TV and the Adapter started to work. I’m using an iPad 5th gen.(2017) running iOS 11.0.3. Try switching the HDMI cable to different port on your TV because there are different types of ports. The adapter is compatible with only a certain type of HDMI port. This is what I did: First I turned OFF the iPad completely (not the sleep mode). Plug in the AV Adapter and HDMI cable. Turn On the TV and iPad. When the iPad has booted up and after a few seconds a blue bar will appear at the top of the iPad screen. This indicates that the iPad is now paired to the TV. The iPad screen should now be mirrored on the TV. Go to “Settings”on the iPad, tap “General”, then “About”. Near the bottom of the screen, “Apple Digital AV Adapter” should be listed. Netflix, YouTube, and games work. Resolution is not great but it depends on your TV. I hope this helps. Try the above before you decide to return the Adapter.

    Yes! It works!

    • Written by Willard F from Brownville

    Not sure why all the bad reviews. I used this with my iPhone 7+, and 6S, and no issues. Worked perfectly immediately. Not 5 stars because I think its a bit spendy for what it is.

    Okay, not as bad as people make it sound

    • Written by Jose R from Converse

    Ive had this adapter for about a year now, I constantly travel for my job so I use it a lot in hotels, I have noticed that it is very delicate, so you have to really take care of it! It works Fantastic integrating movies. I will worn you that Crackle and Hulu does not support it, and will not work. I think Its a great investment and recommend travelers to buy this. Hope this helps!

    You need to be careful.

    • Written by Justin R from COON RAPIDS

    The lightning adapters are very sensitive, and 90% of the time, when one of these breaks, it's because people handle them improperly, either by jarring the connector or yanking it out by the cord. They DO work, and require no configuration. It's like any other electronic device. Treat your stuff with respect and it'll continue to function normally.

    Works as expected

    • Written by Drake C from SAN DIEGO

    Have used this for years to connect an iPad to a hotel TV while traveling to watch movies. Works great.

    I do think the price should come down a little though.

    Not as bad as the reviews

    • Written by Fred N from Grand Rapids

    I had issues at first, I could not pick up a signal. I went to the Apple Store and got help. At first they thought it was a bad adapter but upon further review it was was a very dirty connection due to me never cleaning my plug in. They cleaned it up and now I'm generally pleased.

    Hello All;

    I've been using this adaptor every once in a great while with my iPhone 6S+ and just recently the device was NOT working.

    I have IOS 10.2.1

    I read some of the negative reviews here and was getting a little upset with Apple and their quality of their products.

    But I decided to try this adaptor with my Mom's iPad Air with IOS 10.2.1 installed, and it worked!

    Grabbed my iPhone and tried it right away, and it did NOT work!


    Then I had a thought, I took off my clear protective cover and got my iPhone naked and plugged it in.......AND IT WORKED!!!!!!

    It seems at least in my case (pardon the pun) the protective case was interfering with the lightening adaptor being fully inserted.

    So give that a try and see if it works for you.......it did for me!

    not cheap but...

    • Written by george R from seminole

    i have tried only 1 other adapter. it was not cheap either...$30. but it didn't work.
    i paid $55 for this adapter out the door. it worked and was plug n play; recognized by my stuff immediately.
    as always...we always want more. can we get it to charge my phone while it entertains?
    i was using it with my projector and speaker while waiting on my next flight and it died.
    i am greedy. i know. get over it.
