    Today I plugged my iPad (1) into my plasma widescreen and the output did not display like I expected. Instead it flashed the [correct] image about once every two seconds. Does anyone know what was happening, and why?

    Thanks,

    Not that I could tell. Both ends connected cleanly and smoothly.

    does your tv support airplay, im not sure whether its relevent but i have heard some tvs being incompatible because they do not support it, and you are using a component av cable i assume

    Nope. I'm not sure I even know what airplay is, but my TV is probably much older and designed before airplay was invented (I suspect).

    then that may be your problem, but a few things should be compatible, have you tried playing apps etc?

    No I haven't, but that would be a good test. I thought I had used it on another TV, but I don't remember for sure.

    Air play is when you have the apple tv box you can wifi stream from the iPad to the apple tv box that is hooked up to your tv . I would try a new hdmi cable with your iPad and If that dose you may have a bad apple av/ hdmi cable .I had to return to apple it was bad

    I suppose you mean that if you input a YPbPr (RGB port) signal it does not work?

    Harley man, I am quite sure that the problem is software-related. The picture is perfect and the effect so perfectly timed I could set my watch by it.
