Apple digital AV adapter Issues

Postby guest » Mon Apr 16, 2012 10:40 am

Situation: Apple digital AV adapter can be connected to TV easily show apps, games, presentations, websites and movies on your iPad and iPhone. It connects to HDTV or HDMI-compatible display in up to 1080p HD (movies play at up to 720p). However, we have got some reported issues.

Case 1: Showing apps and games on TV is fine, but the movie doesn't work. Make sure Settings > Video is set correctly.

Case 2: Make sure to change your TV sources to HDMI port where you connect the Ipad2.

Case 3: try different HDMI cable or different port.

Case 4: It works as long as I lay the iPad on a table and don't touch it while the media is displaying on the big screen.

Case 5: Make sure you have updated iOS to 5.1.

After failed attempts trying to get my iPad 2 to work, as well as my iPhone 4, I decided to take my ipad2 and HDMI connection as well as my apple HDMI connection, (basically everything) that I was using to try and connect with my LG 42" LCD, purchased 6 months ago, down to my mates place and test it out on his Sony 46" which he purchased 8 months ago. Well guess what ...it freaking worked! And not just my ipad2 but my iPhone 4 as well.

I then decided to test it on his brothers 32" LG LCD TV which was purchased 2 years ago and... It worked.

I then came home and plugged it into my LG LCD and guess what? It did the freaking same thing ...no signal.

I have narrowed it down to the TV! So if you have tried everything and still no good, try another TV and see how you go!

AV adapter works on my iPad one. However, only with youtube, safari, the photos app, the video app, but not with apps like ABC player and PBS player or video off the CNN app. Does not work with gallery app. Get sound on TV but no picture.

This is correct with the iPad 1 for video playback with the AV adapter.

Only apps that enable video playback using the AV adapter will work. The players you mention don't have this playback option with the AV adapter.

I got both my iPad 1 and iPad 2 to work on two different TVs (a Samsung and an older Sharp). Here's what I did.

1. Turn on TV and have iPad off;

2. Hook up HDMI cable to Digital AV Adapter and connect end to TV;

3. Change "Source" or "Input" depending on your TV to where HDMI is plugged into;

4. Plug Digital AV Adapter into iPad. The iPad will automatically turn on. Once iPad is completely on it will mirror your home page on the TV.

I played an YouTube video, a movie, photos, etc. when it was connected.

NOTE: The connection did not work when I had the iPad on before making the above connections. In fact I had to reset the iPad once when I hooked it up with the iPad on first.

Hope this works for others. The key was having the iPad off when hooking it up to the TV.
