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.

      Do not 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??

Wanted to watch Netflix and other streaming services from my iPad to my bigger computer screen. But no can do. It makes me really angry, that Apple is not clear about the limitations of their product. Just sell and pretend there's no issue. The cable is not "broken", so can't ask for my money back. Not such a smart move, since angry clients tend to move their loyalty to other suppliers. Even I, a former apple fan, is seeing benefits of changing my equipment.

      VERY DISAPPOINTED !!!!!!!!!

      I bought this so I could watch Netflix from my iPad to my TV, which is a plain flatscreen. The vga cable used to work with this same TV and a laptop. Now since I bought this so I could watch Netflix from my iPad to my TV, which is a plain flatscreen. The vga cable used to work with this same TV and a laptop. Now since the laptop has been replaced by the iPad, I got this adapter. Apparently Netflix blocks it. It does mirror the iPad screen to the TV and will play videos that I made on the camera, but the sound on maximum on both devices simultaneously is weak. VERY DISAPPOINTED !!!!!!!!!
