    Thinking of buying one of these to output HBOGo and Netflix when I'm at a hotel or staying at my parents house. Anybody tried one of these and how does the quality compare to an actual Roku box that has these channels?

    The quality is the same as Roku since the iPad outputs up to 1080p. The quality comes down to the video you're watching.

    If he is using the iPad Mini as the source the output is only 720P.

    Nope. From Apple's iPad mini page:

    Video mirroring and video out support: Up to 1080p through Lightning Digital AV Adapter and Lightning to VGA Adapter (adapters sold separately)

    Do not disturb only works while your phone is in lock mode. Is there way I can turn off all notifictions while I'm watching a movie.

    Sadly, not at this time. It's a feature I've seen requested from quite a few people.

    I was not aware of that, thanks for correcting me. I had read in another thread that the Mini only output 720P so that's what I was going from.

    I had a friend who used his phone for Netflix. He bought the applea adaptor and he said whenever he got a text it screwed up his movie

    If you're mirroring the built the display, it's 720p. It's capable of 1080p output from apps, though
