      I use this with the iPhone 4S, Ipad 2, and The New (3rd gen) iPad. Make sure you note the revised Apple nomenclature for this adapter. Apple doesn't even mention this improvement. The photos for both the original and new versions look identical because the squeeze-to-release lock buttons are recessed in edges of the plug. You even have to look very closely while holding it to see the tiny crack outline around the buttons. This is a long-needed improvement because some heavy, stiff HDMI cables pull on the plug, pulling it out from the device. Also note that "mirroring" only works with iOS 5.1 or higher and not on the current (4th generation) iPod Touch. Mirroring may also only work on the iPhone 4S. Some applications on devices other than the iPod may require them to be actively "playing" as in a slideshow or videos to "wake up" the HDMI input on the connected display. HDMI can be a flakey, frequently unstable interface for some displays and other devices just as the first Apple FireWire is (and Sony's iLINK), regardless of whether it's an Apple product or any other brand of cable, adapter, and device. The solution, beside having the latest iOS update, is making the connection as short and direct as possible as well as learning that you may have to "wake up" the display by reconnecting the cable (I installed a switch just to avoid that) or find out what works for you (power-cycle or switch between inputs on your display). The ultimate solution is to substitute another model or display/TV. If you take your device and adapter with the connecting cable into an [@] it will most likely work fine with their equipment because they have selected the display or TV that they know works with the Pod, Phone, and Pad. Don't blame [@]for the incompatibility.

      Comments about Apple Digital AV Adapter:

      I bought this specifically so I can hook up my iPad to the hotel/motel TV and watch whatever I like without paying for in room movies. You might want to bring along your own HDMI cable, too. Most in-room flat screen sets have an easily-accessible HDMI jack. I use that and my Bluetooth headset (paired with the iPad) and it works great!

      Works great

      Comments about Apple Digital AV Adapter:

      Works great. The Audio is also run through the HDMI cable and is not adjustable with the iOS devices volume control. Being able to charge and use the HDMI is very valuable. I have sent this through a 6' cord, faceplate coupler, and 50' cord. The signal did show degradation. Mostly a green snow static over the whole image. For long hauls I would get an HDMI cable with inline booster. You can find them here.

          Comments about Apple Digital AV Adapter:

          Every day for two weeks now, this gadget held up to its function without giving me the headaches, as an another brand of the same thing quit on me for no known reason after working flawlessly for several months previously. Once again, I am gambling on the Apple's name, inspite of the accompanying cost associated with the name brand. The jury is still out until it abandons me again as the other one did. I hope it proves its worthof being more than twice as costly as any other brands. As I said, it's still working as intended, giving me good videos and sounds from my iPad 2 to the HD Tv via 10' long HDMI cable. Soon, I am hoping to replace this cable with an HDMI extender.

                  I connect my ipad 2 on the TV without a problem. A couple of times though while watching a movie I felt that the scene was not 100% smooth. When my kid though decided to connect the ipad to play a game, the picture was perfect.

                  B&H is the place I buy all my electronics from. Fast shipping and clear description of products and great prices.

                    It's an adapter - it does what it says it does. Used it with a 3rd Gen Ipad - outputs video and sound via the HDMI output as expected. I use this when I travel, so I can watch my movies/shows on the TV in the hotel room. So far it has worked well on three different occasions.Knocking off a star, because it is expensive for what it does. Something like this should cost not more than $5-$7, but we all know Apple, so the price ($[$]) is to be expected.I had to get this one in a rush, before a trip, so didn't have time to shop around for a better value alternative - although I am pretty sure that Monoprice does not offer anything similar for less.

                            I thought I could stream my cable TV content to my iPad and watch it on my TV with this cable. Unfortunately, when the cable is hooked up, this content was blocked by the powers that be. Hence, I sent it back. Not the cable's fault.

                              - watch movies on her TV
                              - watch online like HBO on her TV

                              she doesn't have a cable but doesn't matter because I am bring the content now! it's awesome!

                              love this! better than having Apple TV solution. Load your movies or simply watch online contents!

                                  This is a great product. I bought it to stream movies to the tv from my ipad, after researching the best way to do that. It is very easy to connect, and the picture quality is fine. Best of all, it is easily portable. I took it on a recent trip and was able to use it in both hotels. When I needed help negotiating the tv hookup in one hotel, the maintenance person who helped me wanted to know where I got it because it was the best cable he had seen for that purpose.

                                            Product is exactly as listed. It is truly Apple. Delivered as promised - on time and in excellent condition. B&H has always been the best - from the camera I purchased back in the 90s and still today. PERFECT! Thank you B&H.

                                                  We use it to stream Netflix to HDTV instead of using AppleTV. Has little release tabs on sides so it won't pull out of the iPad. Make sure you know your generation of iPad before buying an AV adapter. Apple's part numbers are confusing.
