    I am looking to buy this kit and was wondering if anyone has any experience of which is the best product? The prices seem to range from £25 all the way up to £50 for the same stuff. I have an apple store here, is what they sell really worth the premium?

    Thanks

    Jeff

    I'm sure there is a thread on here which said that you can buy the cheaper cables but I can't remember which one? I'll look for you too!

    Are you looking for ipad2 mirroring, so you can use your iPad on the telly?

    First you'll need your AV cable from Apple, £35, then you'll need a standard HDMI cable.
    Apple's own is a costly £15 and only 1.8 meters long, which is poxy.

    I ordered any old standard offof eBay. Including postage, a 3 meter long cable cost me around £4. Works a treat. I love the mirroring option. And don't let anyone tell you you need expensive specific connections - you don't.

    As for DV, then again, eBay be your friend.

    It pays :)

    If I help around the house and look keen and eager to clean and hoover, I get extra iPad time without ill feeling. Brownie points.

    That's what I'm doing wrong!

    Let's hope our OP has found this info useful.

    Thanks, that's what I thought. I have any number of gold hdmi cables, so no issue with that. I won't touch eBay for reasons I can't go into here, but Amazon have the right kit cheaper than apple so I won't have to go to St David's arcade, or make an appointment so they can try to sell me stuff I don't need ( for those who don't know, yes you can make an appointment for a one on one)

    Bit off thread, but have you tried Amplitube yet?
