    Just doing a little research online and one suggestion is to reset the ipad to its original settings, do you think this would work ?

    If you are NOT jailbroken then you can reset your ipad setting without losing you data

    Danny, how are (were) you connecting it before? Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or HDMI cable connector? Either one should not have changed the way you link in, upgrade does not change your setting per Wi-Fi or BT so a little more info please

    If that is the way you connected before it should not have changed, you are connecting the same way i do, make sure your cable isn't bent, snagged etc; I had no issues after my upgrade so it sounds like something went wrong with the adapter or cable, try resetting your IPad into DFU mode and it will restore your IPad back to factory version firmware, if it work on your tv with the old then you know it's the firmware, i highly doubt though. Good luck

    Thanks for the advice,
    I have not made any changes to the connections and checked the cables with other appliances, the problem only occurred when I upgraded to 5.1.1. The HDMI connection to the ipad is just not recognised after the new update.

    Danny,

    I have the same problem that you have and it is on all 3 of the IPad 2's that are in my house. Before the latest upgrade I had not issue watching movies on all of my Samsung TV's or on TV's around the world, however after none of them work.

    I use the A1388 HDMI adapter and have try many cables even on brand new TV's and still no go. I bought the adapter last Nov. in Thailand and it worked great until I upgraded to 5.1.1 in May.

    From what I have read it seems like we now have to buy a new adapter because the one mentioned above will not work.

    So I am with you wish someone could give a fix I have 30 movies on my IPads that I would love to watc othe 50".

    One more thing is that I do not have the TV option on any of the IPad as I did before.

    This definitely must be an issue with the latest update then. I don't think either one of you are gonna come right if your iPad isn't jailbroken to get this working again.
