Currently Being ModeratedMar 15, 2011 11:58 AM (in response to taquitopete)I just bought that adaptor myself since my iPad 2 will be here in a few days and it doesn't work with the iPhone 4 or the iPad 1. The TV says no signal, then plug the device into either of the two Apple products (both running 4.3) and says getting info, then screen goes blank, nothing going to TV.Power Mac 2.8, Mac Mini 2.54, MacBook 13" 2.16, Mac OS X (10.6.6), iPhone 4 32g (iOS 4.3), iPad 64g (iOS 4.3), AppleTV 2 (iOS 4.3)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 8:03 AM (in response to taquitopete)Having spotty luck with it... see my other post in the iphone discussions...
It does work, but only some of the time - it seems to need a kick in the *** though. Sometimes it links to the TV right away, some times it takes some switching between apps or videos in the camera roll, and now for some reason, it takes plugging my wife's phone in first and then swapping phones once her's is recognized and TV output connection made before mine will output signal to the TV.
And it seems to do video only with some apps and audio only with others, and then nothing with yet others. I guess I just expected it to work, given that we both have freshly updated iphones (4.3), good cables and 2 HD TV's to test with...iphone 4 w/ digital AV adapter, iOS 4, 4.3
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 4:02 PM (in response to taquitopete)After having the same problems, I unplugged the adapter and rebooted my iPhone. After reboot, I plugged the adapter back in and it is working fine. I tested it with iPod mode, Photos, Air Video and VLC. VLC only played audio but all the others worked great. Air Video worked especially good with multiple video formats.iPhone 4, iOS 4, iOS 4.3
Currently Being ModeratedMar 17, 2011 12:50 PM (in response to taquitopete)Thanks for all the comments. I'm at an Apple Store now but couldn't get a Genius Bar appointment. I'm going to try on the other TV tonight, and maybe test it out with my wife's phone too although she's got the 3GS version so I'm not sure if that works.
I've got my iPad2 on order but I was just excited to test out some of the technology ahead of time. People are apparently lining up at the store at 1 AM every night to ensure they get an iPad2 the next day before they run out. Now that's just silly.iMac/iPhone/AppleTV, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 21, 2011 11:50 AM (in response to FPLBob)On my iPhone 4 / 4.3, I'm getting a black screen on everything but the YouTube app - even after a reboot.
Isn't this thing supposed to mirror display of all apps?iPhone4, iOS 4, 4.3

As per the device's description on Apple's website... "Mirroring supported only by iPad 2"

Currently Being ModeratedApr 2, 2011 4:31 AM (in response to taquitopete)I got a digital AV adapter yesterday. Nothing I do will coax it to output video from my iPhone 4 to my Sony Bravia TV or Acer Projector. I know that the HDMI cable is good. I have tried YouTube, Photo Slideshow and iTunes videos - nothing. I found that the plug wasn't fully mated because of my bumper but even taking the bumper off didn't help. I rebooted the iPhone. It just doesn't workiPhone 4, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2011 8:45 PM (in response to dobrojoe)sorry if I jumped in late here and I am not sure if it is answered...
1. The iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 , and iPad all have the same connection as far as video goes.
they do not support the use of the HDMI adapter.
2. Only the iPad 2 supports the HDMI output to a TV
3. even thought the iPhone 4 shoots in HD video, you can only display to a TV using the component cable OR the composite cable
4. the iPhone 5 should be HDMI output compliant (just like the iPad 2)
hope this helpsMacBook, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2011 9:02 PM (in response to gjpetri)I retract some of what I said...
The ip4 should be able to use the HDMI adapter, however it is limited to 720pMacBook, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2011 10:22 PM (in response to gjpetri)Thanks for for your responses. I just got my iPad2 last night. Mirroring worked at first but then I unplugged the iPad from the adaptor and it no longer worked once I plugged it back in. Through trial and error, lots of rebooting my iPad2, and switching to connecting direct to my TV's HDMI input instead of through my HDMI hub, I'm able to mirror my iPad sometimes but not always. I wish I could just mirror everything via AirPlay. Having to connect to a 12 foot cable is lame.iMac/iPhone/AppleTV, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 6, 2011 1:13 AM (in response to gjpetri)Apple show the iPhone 4 as a 'compatible device' in the Apple Store and in the Knowledge Base. An iPhone 4 'should' output slideshows and video (it won't mirror the screen) however, I can't get anything out whatsoever.MacPro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 12:28 AM (in response to dobrojoe)I got the cable today and works like a charm. Hooked phone up to the cable into hdmi port on my tv. First it would not work, until I attached the power cable to the iPhone. Watched a full movie on my tv with phone attached and it played perfectly.
