I upgraded my iPhone 4S to iOS6 even before thinking about purchasing this adapter.  Later I decided to purchase it, and did so just as iOS 6.0.1 was being released.  To my surprise, this adapter still does not work with my iPhone 4S and iOS 6.0.1.  The adapter does work with my 1st gen iPad and even my wife's iPhone 4S that still has iOS 5.1.1.  I have a great deal of content on my phone that I would like to see on my large flat screen TV, however due to iOS 6 I'm not able to do so.  To be honest I am quite disappointed and somewhat frustrated.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    Why does it not work? 

    Any errors?

    Any issues with plugging other adaptors or sync cables into the device?

    Nothing stated indicates this is an iOS 6 issue.  While based on the statements it is very likely, the only way to verify is to try on another device running iOS6.


    Also, if the "accessory is not supported by iPhone" message is displaying, this can indicate a dirty or damaged dock connector.


    Is the adaptor actually listed as "Made for iPhone" or simply "Works with iPhone"?

    Makes sense that it would be iOS 6 actually. Apple is pushing for everything to go over AirPlay, with new iPhone 5s using that exclusively for any kind of video output. Given the number of "features" that were released with v6, it may be a good idea to save your blobs prior to any future iOS update.

    That's good news! If your cable method is working OK with TV you could always stick with that. You are right that ATV out of the box cannot stream from NAS, but if you don't mind 720p and you can find an older v2 model, you can jailbreak it and open up a pretty amazing world of multimedia options through XBMC, NaviX, and other add-ons (this includes streaming from your NAS).
