    Mixing iRig input with Sirius/XM audio

    I can't figure out how to mix two "live" inputs in my iPxxx. My needs require two apps to be running at the same time and I don't even know if that is possible. I am using an old iRig (the first version) to input live guitar feed and I want to mix that with Sirius/XM streams (or other...

    Hah! That did it! Thank you very much! How do I register thanks for you?

    Thanks for responding so quickly folks. The 9.7 just doesn't respond to the pencil. I turned on the bluetooth and expected it to appears in the bluetooth status 'menu' but it isn't there. There was no response from the pencil either in selection options in One Note, or trying to draw with it...

    It appears that the Pencil won't work with the 9.7 inch version Pro...

    I was unable to get the pencil to work with my new Pro 9.7, so I am assuming that the pencil is not designed to work with the smaller Pro. Has anyone else had a different experience?

    Lightning or USB-C to 30-pin connector adapter

    The device doesn't always control the charging (as many folks have learned the hard way), in many applications constant voltage sources with overcurrent protection limit the risk of overcharging. However I understand that you were stating this for my benefit, and I appreciate the effort. You...

    Lightning or USB-C to 30-pin connector adapter

    These last two posts have been very significant. The bottom line is that with an output of 14.7v (and I guess only a couple amps of current available), I will not be trying to charge the iPads (and my 5V assumption was obviously wrong). That's just way too much of a voltage differential for my...

    Lightning or USB-C to 30-pin connector adapter

    Not that I don't believe you, but why do you say it won't charge faster? It's got to have a higher current output rating since it has a higher wattage (and assuming that the output is 5v like all iDevices), 29W/5V=5.8A (less any conversion losses).

    Lightning or USB-C to 30-pin connector adapter

    You guys got it. I want to use the 29W supply to charge the old iPad. Is there any chance that will NOT work (different voltage, overcurrent violation, et al)?

    Lightning or USB-C to 30-pin connector adapter

    Dave, it's a pretty simple question really... Did you look at the post title? It doesn't really matter what model iPad it is (or if it is even an iPad), I just need an adapter that will carry (charging) current from a female Lightning to a male 30-pin (or the corresponding gender of the USB-C...

    Lightning or USB-C to 30-pin connector adapter

    My wife has an old iPad that she uses for various tasks and doesn't feel the need to upgrade to new hardware. For whatever reason she has a hard time keeping it charged with the old resources. I am trying to find an adapter that will allow her to charge her old iPad with the outputs of the...

    Can't get rid of 'unread' emails

    Yep, done. I had realized there was really no risk after you asked me the question about the online account (thanks). So I deleted the account on my iPhone and did a hard reset (both buttons) and recreated the account and everything was fine. I did the same thing on my iPad mini and that is...

    Can't get rid of 'unread' emails

    Thanks JA, but just for your info regarding your first recommendation, it is an Outlook account, and the "unread email" counts vary on two different iPads and different still on my iPhone. (1, 4 and 7, respectively). But your recommendations may still work. There was a similar recommendation...

    Can't get rid of 'unread' emails

    In fact I can't even FIND those 'unread' emails that a specific mail account claims is there. I've tried setting all (the entire inbox) to 'unread' and then setting all of them back to 'read', but the account still reports some 'unread'. I don't want to trash the entire account and start fresh...

    Apple Updates its Support Communities Website With a Fresh New Design

    Yeah and now it won't let me login!! Every time I try (and it asks me for the code from the other device), it tells me that it can't log me in right now (but it's sorry)! How can I avoid this and login?

    8.0.2 needs lots of space!!!???

    8.0.2 needs lots of space!!!???

    Explain to me (anyone) why: (1) every machine I consider updating with 8.0.2 says that it needs a different mount of space, and (2) why it needs a bazillion amount of Bytes of space anyway!? Every machine I try to load it onto (iPhone 5S, iPad Mini, iPad minii/Retina, iPad 2) it wants anywhere...

    iOS 7 - first impressions

    I updated my iPad 2 and am not too impressed. It's a change of pace, but no great improvement (even has some detractors). I want to get a better assessment before updating my mini. My Words with Friends doesn't seem to rotate, and where did the search page go (I actually use it to find my...

    Screen rotation switch BACK!!!

    Overnight my iPad 2 (iOS 6.1.2, no JB) reverted from the switched silent/non-silent function, back to the rotation lock/ non-lock function! Has there been some kind of auto OS mod/chnage that happened overnight without permission? Did my iPad get hit with a cosmic ray? Has some date/time...

    JPG image transfer with Camera Connection Kit - Not

    There's a lot of info buried in there Scifan. I made a quick survey and didn't see anything relevant - even in the links, but I'll study it some more. Thanks for your assistance.

    USB / CF Card

    The iPad can read Nikon raw files ("NEFs") from the CF card if you have such an adapter.

    USB / CF Card

    Unless there is a new version of CCK, the camera connection kit cannot accomodate CF cards. The only way that I know to read CF cards is with a third-part adapter (that are readily available if you know where to look). I just made a quick check and I see them at "Tmart" and "M.I.C." The latter...

    JPG image transfer with Camera Connection Kit - Not

    I just tried to transfer an SD card contents of my Nikon JPGs and none of them transfered. The process proceeded normally until the images started to transfer and then each one was identified with a red exclamation mark, and when it was done nothing had transferred. There was no...

    Ghosting effect on screen...

    "iPad 4"? Maybe I missed something. I had the first version (ok, iPad 1), and I amusing the 2nd version (right now), and just bought my wife "the new iPad" (iPad 3), what is the iPad 4, or was there really a version that snuck past me?

    iOS 6.0.1 is out

    I learned how my iPad clobbered some Outlook users' meeting invitation calendars and outlook apps completely. So now that I have installed 6.0.1, I need to test this with and Outlook meeting invitation test. I have suggested this to one of my clients, but I think he is still too afraid to try it!

    TUTORIAL - Jailbreak iPad1 on IOS5 using redsn0w

    I JB'd my iPad 1 some time ago and found it slightly useful. I bought the 3G hotspot app (don't remember what it's called), and the app hardly ever worked (and when it did it was terribly slow), and beyond that I didn't find the JB of much value (aside from learning about JB'ing and Cydia), so...

    IOS 5.1.1 update on the New Ipad

    In your case I would sit tight for a few weeks until these "rumors" are verified or vilified. Or as an alternative, if one of you can go without in a pinch, update the lesser needed device for a test (and be prepared in the short run for it to fail). Good luck,
