      Easy – lightning to digital AV adapter, then hdmi cord – connect to hdmi/analog converter with rca connections, then run you cables to your old TV. It does work, I do it for karaoke monitor in in my bar room.

    Hi there,

    I wanted to know if there is any difference in quality if I use the AV adapter or Apple TV? I would like to buy the option where the quality on the TV is the best.
    Does it depend on the ipad model, connection method or the TV?

    Thank you!!

      Simone there will be minor change in quality if you are using official av adapter product by apple then Apple TV connection , but let me know that if there is other company adapter will be there then surely quality of picture will be degrade at some level.

    I have bought lightning Digital AV adapter with HDMI socket and tried to connect my ipad Air to TV screen but it never works. I though the adapter was faulty and have it replaced but it still did not work. I have tested the HDMI cable which was fine. So the overpriced Adapter was totally useless to me. Any suggestions ?

    1. Caro

      I have had the same experience. I do not get any sound or picture on the TV when connecting the hdmi cable and lightening adaptor to my new iPad Air.
      I successfully connected to the TV using an hdmi cable and lightening cable for the older version of the iPad, think it was iPad 2. I don’t understand why the TV viewing doesn’t work now however it worked previously. Help / advise please?


    Connecting an iPad to a TV display can be really useful – whether you want to show photos or videos to family members, or bring movies to the big screen. The iPad supports video output naturally and can easily be connected to an external display.
