  1. Thanks for the comment Callum. I think at some times the wire is behind my finger (especially during the Jetpack Joyride demonstration) but it is definitely plugged in at all times – otherwise it wouldn't have worked.
    I appreciated the feedback and I will be sure to make sure things are clear in the future! Cheers, John.

  2. Thank you for the video, however it should be noted than when using an iPhone4 you can only see videos or photos but you will not be able to see the menus (for instance you won't be able to see a game, only its sound).

  3. The digital AV adapter has the option to plug your lightening or 30-pin cable in (you can see the lightening opening at 00:37 in the video). In other words, you have to plug your phone into your existing charger if you want to charge it while using the HDMI connection.

    Thanks for getting in touch,

  4. We purchased it from the Apple online store. Plenty of other places to get it (amazon etc)

  5. Hello! I cracked out the cables and tested it for you but unfortunately it does not work. As soon as I plugged it in and launched the app it said 'HDMI out is not supported on this application'. That is a shame, and lets hope some day they change their mind on that one. Thanks for getting in touch!
