TV out not working for my US bought iPad on a UK TV. Possible they're not compatible?
I ended up buying my first Apple product whilst I was in the US on a 12 month internship. Hands down, the iPad 3 is the best thing I've ever bought. It's basically taken over my phone, laptop, and computer. I take the thing everywhere. It's the 16GB WIFI model.
I ended up buying some Workaholics tv series via iTunes for my flight home, the iPad is the perfect companion for flying!
Anyway, I want to watch my shows on my iPad on my Television, I know it's possible because my friend (who has an iPad 2 does it). So, I went to an Apple shop, saw they sold a composite cable for £30. Being a typical broke student, I decided to eBay one, came across this listing: Gold RCA Composite AV Video to TV USB Charger Cable for iPad 2 3 iPhone 4 4S 3GS | eBay - sounds promising, right? It says on the listing that it's compatible with the iPad 3, "happy days" or so I thought.
Well, it came today and to my shock, it didn't work. I tried it with my brothers iPad 2 (watching Netflix) and it worked perfectly, however my US iPad 3 didn't work at all. I tried plugging it into a composite->scart adapter and still nothing. No sound played through my iPad or TV (which I find strange) but there wasn't any video at all.
Just wondering if anyone has had any similar experiences? I'm dying to watch Netflix on my TV but at the moment I'm confined to watching it on my iPad.
