    I see that netflix came out today with a update today which enables the use of vga connector. If this is true then it seems a great way to download movies & watch on tv. If anybody has the connector would you please report if it now works ok with netflix. jim_joh

    Netflix works with the VGA adapter. I did have some crashes when I tested it yesterday, however, there is an update as of this morning; I will test it again.

    I sure wish netflix would convert more of their movies to streaming format. Seems like most are old B-grade movies.

    How many people just signed up for the free month only because they got an ipad? I feel like if they really want to kill off the comp. they will start putting new releases online. If not I will cancel after paying for just 1 month. I can make it to 5 different redbox locations in under 5 mins. where I can rent new movies for $1. 9 movies = 1 month of subscription with no waiting for new movies to arrive via mail.

    I have watched several movies now but only 1 on ipad rest on the PS3 in the living room, I am excited to hook it up and watch movies in the bedroom. But Still I am frustrated that it has to be old school movies that I watched in HS and MS and maybe a few that have come out in last 10 years.

    The NetFlix update works better but still has bugs. I have a feeling we are going to see a a lot more updates in the next coming days.

    I have problems. I went to the Apple store & bought the vga connector. Well first it streamed a pretty good picture but no sound to the tv . Second it was a clear picture except on my 32"hd lcd the picture was a lot smalller than the screen. Third no closed caption which I was hoping for. Any ideas I would appreciate jim_joh

    The VGA connector has no sound so you will have to use the headphone jack for sound. The reason it looks small is that the VGA output is 4:3 and widescreen movies get letterboxed.

    I agree

    I too am disappointed with the selection in streamable recent movies

    I understand what you are saying about wide screen being letterboxed but in this case it is all four sides which make it a really small screen. I guess it is a lost cause. Another great idea down the tube jim_joh
