  4. Question: Using iPad 4, When I connect to a projector that does not have speakers, I need to connect the audio to a sound system. I have the appropriate adapters. (Rocketfish lightning to HDMI and 3.5 mini to XLR adapter) How do I ensure I get my audio?

    I had an issue where on the test run, everything worked fine with both video on projector screen and audio in the sound system, but during the actual display I got video but no audio. When I unplugged the headphone (3.5 mini) cable and replugged I could hear the static of the connector grounding out until fully seated but the video's audio did not come out. If I unplug HDMI cable everything plays properly on iPad.

    So confused.

  10. apple wants to have you use an ipad for business , not only for personal use, right? When you connect your ipad to a beamer and give a demonstration of some software, you could end up needing to type in a password. Unfortunately, when putting it on the big screen, the password will show briefly each entered character. I would have expected that this tethering to another source would suppress that. It already makes a distinction for videos, so why not have the password functionality included?
