Since upgrading to iOS 4.2.1 on my iPad, I have not been able to send video to my TV while using the Apple VGA Adapter.

Although I didn't use this feature a lot since purchasing the iPad and adapter, I did verify that this feature did work before.

I have verified that my RGB-PC input appears to work on the TV, as my laptop successfully is displaying on the TV.

The apps that I am testing against are Photos (slideshow mode), You Tube, Keynote presentations, Videos .

Is there some setup configuration that I'm missing?

    I have since confirmed that my iPad is sending video to the VGA Adapter as I have successfully connected an NEC MultiSync monitor to the output and it is displaying video.

    Can anyone tell me what refresh rate that the iPad is using when output is from the iPad Dock connector to VGA Adapter? My television specs claim that it will handle

    1024x768 @ 60Hz
    1024x768 @ 70Hz
    1024x768 @ 75Hz

    Yet, I'm not able to get the TV to detect the signal.

    Since I believe this worked with this hardware in the past, is it possible that the output refresh could have changed?

    I have the same problem. Been sending video to my LCD tv thru the VGA adaptor. But since upgrade to iOS 4.2, can't seem to do it anymore. Been using air video app.

    I am also having the same problem. Its worked really well until I updated my iPad. Has anyone got a solution to this problem? It is really annoying.
