    Hi All,

    I am about to purchase the Lightning Digital AV Adapter for my Iphone 5, i know some apps dont let you stream content from the phone to the TV, i use to get around this by using TV2Out on my old Iphone 4 but this isnt compatible, anyone know of a similar product in the cydia world that can remove the apps restrictions?

    Thanks

    I was wondering the same thing as well. I have an Apple TV which does the same thing as the Lightning to Digital AV adapter just wirelessly. I found unrestrictor but it too isn't supported. Maybe it's not possible at all. I'll try contacting the developer and see if they have any plans to update it. I suggest you do the same as well if you don't find anything. And if you do, please share. Cheers.

    Just don't forget it delivers significantly lower quality and framerate, unless it plays back iOS-native videos. That is, the wired solution is almost certainly much better - unless, again, it plays back iOS-native video files, when there's no quality difference.

    ----------

    I've just tested the current DisplayOut tweak. Not updated to iOS7 yet.

    Nevertheless, it'd deliver significantly lower image quality than even standard mirroring. I really don't think you want to use it for video watching - unless it's already "jumpy".

    I haven't had an issues so far with frame rate or jittering. I think it depends on the router you're using since it depends on your home network to transfer the video/audio signals and if everyone's on it, could get congested if your router isn't all that great. I live alone and my ATV is next to my AirPort Extreme... So unless you're like me and don't care about native iOS video, then Digital AV Adapter would be for best.

    Are you sure it wasn't native iOS video that was played back? Non-native playback over AirPlay has both reduced resolution (HD) and 30p only (as opposed to the 60p max of both native iOS video playback and wired connections). Even if both your ATV source are wired - AirPlay is a very lossy protocol.

    (Nevertheless, it's still better than the current implementation of the Android counterpart.)

    So what constitutes native playback? I playback video from Netflix and from the web like Safari. Neither have given me any issues.
