    I'll attach a picture of the cable I bought on eBay. Not bad for like $15. It hardly charges it when I have an HD movie streaming but other than that this cable transfers all video and sound from every app you can think of, on either my iPhone or iPad..

    Except Netflix.

    I thought installing DisplayOut would do the trick but not much happened there.

    The nice thing about them cables is you also get true CLEAN 1080p output unlike those that use the lead/wire limited lightning connector.

    Thanks for the responses. I'm sure this cable isn't official so there's the short answer.

    If anyone knows of a work around I'd appreciate it, no matter how sublime.

    WRT 30-pin Apple cables & adapters, never ever purchase any third-party, cheap, noname knock-offs unless you're absolutely sure they are supported by a third-party hack - for example, the $2-$3 composite output cables supported by Resupported4. Those cables are indeed worth purchasing if you don't need to use HDMI / VGA output on the same device (without constantly un- and, then, reinstalling Resupported4) and do not want to use those cables on a non-JB'n device.

    All other Chinese knock-offs are to be avoided. I've tested many and most of them proved to be useless.

    BTW is it possible to request a refund? for a cheap (and, what is worse, non-working) knock-off, $15 is certainly too much, given that you can get the official, original one directly from Apple for $30.

    No I can't. Well maybe but it seems like a hassle to have to return it and wait for a new one when my little one expects me throw on an episode of something almost daily. I bought an HDMI to DisplayPort cable that works great with an MacBook Pro connected to the TV with an aux audio cable.

    All works minus netflix from ipad. But I have MovieBox which does let us see the newest films in HD too. Ten times better than netflix.
