Good ...... BUT,
This review is from: Apple Digital AV Adapter for Apple iPad 2 (Personal Computers)
product is neat and well made as you would expect......
but dissapointed that SKYGO does not allow you to transfer picture off ipad 2.
So the mirror screen issue can be blocked by some apps.
shame its the only thing I bought it for!

Thanks for warning re skygo - Does this affect other tablets which have a direct HDMI out ( ie Acer A500 ) ??

Thanks for the review - just saved me £35 as this was exactly what I was going to buy it for too.
Why Sky have locked it down when you can happily connect a PC or Xbox 360 with SkyGO to your TV is anyone's guess, but, as with the two device limit, it would seem to me that they are just being anti-customer.

There is possibly a workaround for the Sky Go issue if you own a PC you could install Splashtop. This will enable you to drive the Sky Go software on the PC through to the Ipad then through the adaptor to the big screen.

do you know if this works with the sky sports ipad app? I can watch sky sports news and f1 channel thru that app instead of using sky go, do they block that as well?

Cheers for that. Am I right in thinking that if I brought Apple TV then SkyGo would work? (from ipad to tv).
JUST CHECKED THIS MYSELF - YOU CANT USE APPLE TV TO WATCH SKYGO FROM IPAD

I should have read this comment first as I have just done exactly the same thing! :/ also the picture does not fill the whole television screen which is slightly annoying....
