FAQ (13)

Does it work directly with backberry playbook? Thanks
Yes it does. You'll need an micro hdmi adapter though

Will you need a wired connection from the Kanex ATV Pro to the iPad to get sound through the device or a wired connection with the Stereo Mini jack to a local sound source?
No. You only need a wired connection from your Apple TV to the VGA projector using our ATV Pro. That's it! Once that is connected, you can stream, mirror your content from iPad wirelessly around the class-room or conference room. The stereo mini-jack connects to the VGA projector for audio.

Will this product go backwards, VGA to HDMI? It doesn't need to up convert, but just output.

Hi. Would i be able to use vga to dvi adapter to connect to dvi port on my tv? Or vga to component? Thanks
Thats a great question,however - adding a Component or DVI adapter on the other side of VGA will diminish the picture quality and most probably wont airplay your protected content such as iTunes or iBooks. There are several reasons for this, first being that our device is powerless, most of the DVI connectors requires 5v extraction from HDMI or other sources. Secondly, the Kanex ATV Pro is already a converter, by adding two converters in the same sequence may result into no display at all. Hope i answered your question. Thanks.

Rather than connecting the mini stereo to the projector sound input, can I connect it to powered speakers resulting in video through projector and sound through speakers. When playing audio only as through iTunes/Airplay or Airfoil will the sound only go to the speakers? Don't want to do any disconnecting as it will be on the ceiling.
Absolutely, you can connect powered speakers with the ATV Pro. When playing audio only as through iTunes/Airplay or Airfoil, the sound will only go to the speakers. Thanks

When hooking up my apple tv to the projector, it imagine has a pink hue to it. This only happens on a couple of my apple tv/projector connections. Is there a reason way or a way to fix this issue?
Hi Tammy, this issue is caused by improper reading of the display information called "EDID". To fix this its simple, just go under your apple TV settings, under TV resolutions and adjust the resolution to 1024x768@60Hz or lower and save the changes. The pink hues will disappear.

I cannot get my MacBook Pro Retina to display on my VGA projector even when mirroring at the projector's resolution. Is ATV Pro MBPR compatible?
if you have the ATVPro plugged into the Macbook Pro Retina in the HDMI port, the ATVPro will not work, since the Macbook Pro HDMI port is not powered and won't supply power to the ATVPro via HDMI. If you were to plug an Apple TV for example that will work since the Apple TV's HDMI port supplies power through the HDMI port.

I was wanting to take a Digital AV adapter that converts the 30 pin plug on the iPad to an HDMI, and plug that HDMI to the ATV Pro, but when it was all connected it didn't work. I know the ATV Pro works with the Apple TV on the same screen. Is there something I'm missing to make a wired scenario work?
Thanks for the inquiry and feedback, however the ATV pro is designed to work when directly plugged in to Apple TV, so you can wirelessly mirror your iPad, the digital AV adapter is not compatible with ATV Pro.

Does the ATV Pro work with the newest AppleTV (MD199LL/A)?
Yes. Seamless - just like the older versions.

Is the ATV Pro compatible with new Mac Mini?
The new Mac Mini does not supply any power through the HDMI port. In order for the ATVpro adapter to work it needs to get power from the HDMI port. We do carry a converter HDMI to VGA on our KanexPro line which has its own AC adapter. This will work for your type of setup. Been sold here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/770123-REG/KanexPro_HDVGARL_HDMI_to_VGA_with.html Thanks

Will the ATV Pro work with the Samsung Chromebook 303C to display from the HDMI port to a VGA projector?
Sorry but the ATVPro adapter will not work with the Chromebook. Seems like the HDMI port on the Chromebook does not supply enough power to turn the ATVPro adapter on. The ATVPro adapter does not have an external AC adapter so it gets its power from the HDMI port of the device. However we do have a converter on our KanexPro line which will work for your setup since it has its own AC adapter and its selling here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/770123-REG/KanexPro_HDVGARL_HDMI_to_VGA_with.html

Is it possible to use an iPad's HDMI adapter to connect directly into the ATVPro , and then into a projector?
The ATVPro will not work since it gets its power from the HDMI port of the source device. The iPad HDMI adapters do not provide power via the HDMI port and this is why the ATVPro adapter will not work.

Is this product compatible with The Little Black Box as well? My issue...when hooked up to my projector, I need a device like this to allow me to play audio through my external speakers for better sound quality when streaming movies. Thanks
The ATVPRO should work with any standard HDMI output. The device does require power over HDMI tho. Please check with your devices manufacturer to make sure the HDMI port provides power.
