I was able to fix it by unplugging the adaptor from the iPad, pressing the home button, then reattaching the adaptor. At this point, my TV recognized the HDMI handshake. Try it and let me know it works.MacBook Pro late 2008, 2.4 Ghz, 4 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6), iPhone 4, iPad Wifi, Time Capsule

Currently Being ModeratedMar 28, 2011 2:29 PM (in response to BeersYourFriend)There appears to be some number of screens that the iPad 2 can't drive. I am sitting in a Marriott and the iPad 2 plus Digital AV adapter will not work well an LG 32LC5DCB TV (1366x720). Interestingly, some applications will work -- SlingPlayer for iPad works, but Netflix, Videos, Pictures and Keynote do not.
Also, Videos on the iPhone do work fine using the same connector.
I assume there's something with the HD Video drivers on the iPad that are not compatible with some TVs.iPad 2, iOS 4

I spent all weekend (trying to get it working) and 3 or 4 trips to apple store before exchanging mine, now it works perfectly! The problem was it was tested in the store and worked so I assumed it was my tv's. I had heard there was some defective ones out there and now I'm proof! Apple was really cool about it as always!Ipad2, iOS 4, Iphone4

Try this. Power your iPad right off using the top switch held down for a few seconds till the red message about shutdown comes up. Still have your HDMI cable connected to the iPad and your TV which you should keep powered on when you do this. Restart the iPad and you should be able to see your screen mirrored on the TV.
It is common to shut down computers then external AV devices do not recognize the dideo input. Hop this works for all of you.

Every day I like Apple products less, may be Apple had secretly merged with the garbage maker the new name is Applesoft. I purchased this adaptor for my iphone 4 two weeks ago, it was working ok, except the occasional annoying message "this accessory is not optimized for this iphone", but this is an Apple product, W.T.F?
Yesterday, it suddenly completely stopped working, I am sure it's not because of my HD monitors and TV, because I tried on four different HD TVs, I updated to iOS 4.3.3, nothing seem to work. for a $40 dollars tiny cable it seems like a big rip off from Apple just like they did with the $39.00VGA cable(which you can get for $2.00 on eBay) except it would not pass the Apple's so called "optimized" rip-off I am going back to Apple today to see the so called "Genius" and demand they give my money back and give me a working cable, they have to compensate me for wasting my time!!
