    I was thinking about getting the HDMI adapter for my iPad. But before I spend the bucks, I was wondering if anyone who has bought one could share their thoughts.
    Also, it works the same with the first iPad and iPad 2 right?
    I have the original iPad.

    Thanks for any help!!!!

    It works the same with the iPad 1, with the exception that ti won't mirror the iPad screen. Or so the fine gray print on Apple's site suggests.

    Apple Digital AV Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

    Can't say anything about experience. Don't even have a TV, let alone one with HDMI.

    How is the quality on the tv? If you are watching a movie you bought on ITunes, is the picture good?

    Good on iPad. Great on iPad 2. I have both. Hulu worked on my iPad 2 and I don't think this works on the iPad one. The screen mirroring pretty much takes care of any issues. (at least what I have seen so far). Netflix is great. More and more options will be available soon. I a, on the road a lot so using this in a hotel room is great. Also worked great on my iPhone 4. I watched an entire movie on Netflix with no issues. Only downside is your screen needs to be on all the time. Meaning phone/iPad.

    I have the Digital AV Adapter, ordered when I ordered my iPad 2, and that is what Apple calls their HDMI adapter :) But when I ordered, my order confirmation just said AV Adapter. Had it hooked up to HDMI on my television earlier this evening.

    Does it work as well as they say it will? I would like to hear how it works with an IPHone 4 as well.

    I don't have my iPad 2 yet, it's due today, so only tried a movie, not mirroring. The movie worked and looked great. Will be trying the mirroring later today.
