    Hi - can any one confirm just how good/bad the iPad's VGA adaptor is? Do I get a complete video output from the iPad at all times, so can I see the OS/Games/Apps on the monitor?

    Or is it similar to the iPhone's component cable whereby only limited stuff actually gets output?

    Ugh, that's pretty horrible then. Nice of Apple to arbitrarily decide what I should use the peripheral for :| And WTF is this from your Apple link?

    HDCP over an analogue VGA connection? It's another Apple world first!

    No, you read that wrong. It will warn you, and not play the content.
