1.0 out of 5 stars Is this a genuine part?, 22 Jan 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple Digital AV Adapter for Apple iPad 2 (Personal Computers)
On the packaging there is a typo (Apple is not based in Cupertion, it should be Cupertino), and when connected to an Ipad, (under setting - about) the manufacturer is given as "CHCF".

I have been advised by Apple support that this is not what they'd expect from a genuine Apple item.

It kinda works, intermittently, but Netflix fails - does not play movies for more than a second (on the rare occasion it doesn't give a "Display not supported" error message before playback starts) and BBC Iplayer crashes as playback commences.

I've replaced with a genuine apple version - bought from a local store (at 3x the price) and it works flawlessly.

I've seen people suggesting how to make this work on various forums - switching cables, turning things on and off, etc, but I could not find away to solve my problems with this item.

Maybe this would have worked in older versions of IOS, before apple updated settings to prevent items not endorsed by apple from working.

I tested on the "New Ipad" ( 3rd Gen) (IOS 7), Iphone4 (IOS 6) and Iphone 4s (IOS 7) - none of these devices are jailbreaked.

Arrived promptly from the seller, but dispatched back equally quickly from me.
