    I've heard that with the new update by Netflix one can watch movies on the
    iPad via Apple's VGA adapter. However, on my LG TV the VGA port is female,
    as is the Apple, so how do they mate up? There are many uTube videos
    demonstrating the hookup but none of them address this issue. In fact, most
    of the u/t's seem to be as ignorant on the subject as I am, appearing to film
    their escapades before they even try out the procedure. Any help?

    You use a standard VGA cable between the adapter and the TV, male to male pins.

    Sounds about right, thank you. Will this cable handle the audio portion also?

    No, VGA doesn't handle audio, use a 3.5mm male to RCA adapter, from your iPad to your TV audio inputs.

    I just hooked my iPad to my HDTV . You need the Apple VGA cable which is only 10" long. You also need a Longer VGA cable to extend the Apple cable. Warning do not buy a VGA extension cable it has the wrong connectors, you want a standard cable with 2 male ends. Sound comes from the iPad headphone jack, buy the correct cable based on you system. Remember to change your TV input to RGB. When you start a Netflix movie your TV will need a couple of seconds to see the RGB signal. Very few apps are programed to use the video out display. BTW, VGA will not display in HD. You need the component cables from Apple to do HD.

    Is the Apple VGA cable the one in the Apple catalogue "component AV cable"? Apple
    claims that this is THE hookup, but after the "camera connection kit" debacle (concerning
    video transfer) I'd much rather hear it from an iPad owner/user. I've also looked at the
    Apple "composite VA cable", which appears to be similar but with a lower quality (standard definition vs HD) picture. Am I in the ball park here? Hate to pay Apple's
    cable prices if it's not what I need for Netflix. Thanks for the info preceding!
