Well, I tried an ipad2, and the same thing. I'm pretty pissed at Apple right now, why the hell do you design something to NOT work? I just can't see any reason for this product if it doesn't output HDMI when you want it to. I think any cheap HDMI to VGA adapter with digital out should work, I saw some for ~30 on ebay and Amazon. Please post if anyone has any ideas or success.
