Rated 3 out of 5 by from This unit actually works, but as i found it would NOT work at all on my ipad2,it worked reasonably well on my ipad1 and iphone4s,and worked on a borrowed ipad3,so its advertised as ipad2 but wont work on it,strange ? Small aerial is loose and swivels too easily,causing loss of signal,best use the magnetic one instead. Dock fitting is loose,and causes problems if you have a cover on your pad that comes close to the dock fitting,you have to remove the cover for a better connection,but the slightest movement disconnects the unit. Nowhere in the instructions does it mention that you have to charge the unit first. So take note.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent iPad gadget if you want to view Freeview TV on your own or away from your home TV. The directly fixed integral extending/telescopic aerial only works well with a very strong signal and tends to swivel /rotate too freely in its socket and is easily knocked out of alignment causing loss/degradation of signal strength. It is better to use the additional freestanding aerial provided since it receives a stronger signal, can be positioned away from the iPad and can also be temporarily fixed by means of its suction disc to a suitable smooth hard surface thereby giving a good continuous signal strength. All in all a very handy addition to your iPad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I rarely write reviews but felt I had to for this product. There are two aerials in the box - one short extendable and one a small desk aerial. I used the desk aerial out of the two and reception was superb and the app crystal clear showing station names etc. Recording is high quality and simple and playback easy. There are three minor downsides in that (a) reception was pretty poor with the short extendable aerial (but you will have no issue using the desk aerial) (b) the app does not appear to include a function to programme tv recordings and (c) the accompanying manual isnt that great (see copy on Maplin store). However, these are only minor distractions from an otherwise brilliant product. Really happy and a steal at the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic little device. Instructions do not tell you it needs to be charged first. The led will show RED when connected to USB port and changes to GREEN when fully charged. Once charged your iPad will recognise it and sets you on the path to download the APP. When set up is complete it works very well with its own little antenna and gets all the available channels. EXCELLENT, just bought another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this id tv for my I pad 2 and it is amazing it really is, when putting the little desk top arial on the window cill I pic up 26 channels and they are perfectly clear and also works in my van when am on lunch at work, we're I live you get no phone signal what so ever in the house so was very amazed it does work and the cable for the desk arial, (which is tiny, only 4inch tall ) is nice and long so you can sit back and enjoy, ,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received this for Christmas and it's brilliant. At first I couldn't get it to work, this is because it needed charging up via USB, but once that was done and I had the app downloaded to my iPad, it gave fantastic reception. There are two aerial in the box; one with a base (that looks a bit like a mini cab radio aerial) and one tiny aerial that plugs directly into the iDTV dongle. I've only used the tiny aerial, indoors in a normally mediocre signal area and it works brilliantly, rarely freezing. The recording and pausing live TV are great features. The recordings can't be exported to watch elsewhere, but the only reason you might want to do that is if you don't want to fill up your iPad with recordings. All in all, I think this sort of gadget has come of age. Unlike earlier PC digital TV adaptors, this is a reliable DVBT device and the iPad makes a great host for this gadget.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It does work well, though not everywhere. I get 77 channels and good reception at home. However the connector comes unstuck too easily and requires a complete restart. Note that you can't recharge iPad whilst using this. Also you will be made to pay TV license fee

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reception can be improved by purchasing MCX adaptor cable (Maplin code N59LN). This enables an ordinary TV aerial to be plugged in; especially useful if used in a boat, caravan or anywhere else reception is poor. Excellent fun product, it works well on my ipad2; luckily it is fairly intuitive to use, because the instructions are inadequate.
