Airplay Defaulting To Dock Connector?

I have had intermittent problems using the BBC iPlayer app over the last two days. When using the app to play video, the sound will stop (silence), and the iPad volume control does not work, or show on screen indication.

I have found that the Airplay menu is set to ¨dock connector¨ even though I'm using the iPad solo.

I have re installed the app, but found that once the error occurs, all other apps are affected - volume.

Rebooting the iPad solved the issue a couple of times, but I now find that even the video app, shows Airplay to dock connector, and there is no iPad checkbox on the menu. 

iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iOS 5.1.1

Low Profile Dock Extender - Dock Connector Cables
So I'm looking for a cable that has the new apple low profile dock connector on one side and a female dock connector on the other side. Cause most iPod interface cables have big bulky dock Connectors and it won't fit in the spot I'm looking at. I even tried looking for a female USB to female dock connector couldn't find that either. Do they not make thin dock connector cables?

Usb To Dock Connector?
I have both an iTouch and a new iPad. Is the iPad USB to Dock Connector compatible with the iTouch USB to Dock Connector so I only need one cable for both devices?

Right Angle Dock Connector?
I bought an acrylic adjustable easel from a craft store ($2.99!) to use as a stand to hold my iPad in either portrait or landscape position. Not that it matters a lot, but the cable doesn't fit under the iPad in portrait mode and it also hangs off to the side in a rather unsightly manner. I thought if there was a right angle connector available anywhere it could eliminate both issues. The cable I am looking for looks something like this on another MR thread

Dock Connector For Mulitple?
I was using my iPad normally the other day and synced it to my mac (iMac in sig). Today there were a few updates for apps that I use, so I decide to re-sync the iPad even though I have hardly used it since the sync the night before. I plug in the dock connector to the bottom (same cable/USB port as the night before) and nothing happens. I tried my iPhone and iPod on the cable and everything shows up in iTunes fine. As soon as I try the iPad....nothing. Of course I have done a soft and hard restart with no luck. Seems weird that the dock connector magically went bad while sitting on my desk overnight. Any ideas?

How Snug Dock Connector Be?
I hope this is the right forum for this question.

When I first inserted the sync cable, my new iPad 3G the dock connector was very tight and snug, no movement whatsoever.However over the past four days the connector tightness seems to be a bit less. I noticed it more tonight when I picked up my iPad and felt a light tug and realized it was still attached to the charging cable, I quickly inspected it to ensure I didnt damage anything and noticed the connection between the device and the cord seemed ever so slightly "wobbly"

When I plug in the cable it doesn't feel loose per se, doesn't move side to side, or fall out, but rather flexes slightly front to back of the device. Doing this doesn't break charging or sync connection, doesn't seem to have any adverse effects.

My iPod Touch has the same slight front-to-back flex of the sync cable when attached, but it's been plugged in every night to charge, and every day into the car dock multiple times for well over a year, so I would expect the connectors to be slightly worn.
I have inspected the inside of the ports on both devices, even prodding them slightly with a small electronics probe, and everything seems tight and straight.

1) Is it normal for this slight front-to-back flexibility? Are the connections not supposed to be tight and unmoving? (I have tried both devices on all 5 of my charge/syc cables including one that was brand new with the same results.)
2) I see so many speaker systems and charging stations that seem to support the devices only by their docking ports, so exactly how sturdy are these dock connnectors? Are they not prone to bending/breakage?

Keyboard Via Dock Connector?
I plan to buy an ipad for my wife. So far, she balks at the onscreen keyboard.

I'm not clear if the "dock" connector on the ipad is the usual USB port, or instead, something proprietary to the ipad. Since i already own an old imac keyboard, is it possible to plug this USB keyboard straight into the ipad,. Or is my only option to buy Apple's bluetooth keyboard? I have also read few threads here, where people are having problems with the bluetooth keyboard.

I'm equally curious to learn from other people who also thought they needed a real keyboard, but then when they tested it, along with the onscreen keyboard, they actually preferred the onscreen one.

VGA Dock Connector For Video Camera?
Thinking along the lines that if Apple is providing a VGA dock connector (its one of the accessories!) to output video, its feasible that one could right a program to import video?

Even without the touch screen capabilities a portable 9" monitor of that quality would be perfect for my application (Live-View & Review Monitor for Video Camera).

So can it be done, is someone doing it? Is there an App for that?

Way To Hook Up 2 Accessories To Dock Connector?
I am trying to find if there is a way to hook up 2 accesories to the iPad's dock conntector? I am looking at getting an iPad to simplify my dj set up (well basically eliminate all other equipment besides speakers and headphones) and one of the products that is coming out is a midi controller that connects through the dock connector. It looks like a great product but I would also like to be able to charge the iPad at the same time. Is there any product that is available that could help me do this? I saw one website that makes a splitter but it is only electrical taped together and is not sturdy. I was looking at the camera connector that would give one usb port but then I would need to find a product that turns that into the dock connector (for the midi controller) and a usb (for the power cord).

Dock Connector Cable To Hook IPod
Being a cheap poor ba**ard that I am, I bought the 16 gig iPad. It does fine but I am very selective on what I put on it for space reasons. I had a thought, why not have a dock connector cable to dock connector (hook iPad to say a hard drive based ipod with a hell of a lot more storage than the ipad, I have a vast library of movies ). I am sure this is just a pipe dream and people will say that it will cause people to not buy the bigger capacity iPads, but who cares. I want a cheap alternative. Well to all who think I am crazy, fire away with your insults, ridicule, cheap shots and so on, I promise I will not report you because I love reading this garbage.

Stuck At Apple Logo And Dock Connector
I have an iPad that I've had for several months now. It's been jailbroken since I got it. However, last night I went to plug it into my wall next to my bed to charge and it didn't recognize being plugged in. I brought it out and tried the connector plugged into my computer and iTunes won't recognize it.I tried my iTouch with both cables and they work fine. Reading some of the forums in here I figured I would try a reboot. However, now I'm stuck at the Apple logo. I read further about using redsn0w and using the "just boot tethered" option. However, since my iPad dock connector seems to be having issues, it won't recognize my iPad in DFU mode (and I've had it in DFU mode plenty of times so I know I'm doing it right).My problem is, if it's a faulty connector, since I'm jailbroken and can't get in to do a factory reset, am I screwed? This is a hefty investment to lose out on.

Dock Connector Cable Created Scratches?
Howdy everyone, I've searched the forums and I discovered one thread about the USB cable creating scratches to where you plug in the cable but my cable has created grooves into the side of the slot. It looks as if the "teeth" of the USB cable sliced into the sides of the slot. One on each side. It is noticeable as the grooves start on the outside of the slot. Is this normal?

IPad 3 :: No Sound - Faulty Dock Connector?
I have an iPad 3 and it's sound has just completely gone away, not even on earphones. I tried the mute sidebutton trick but that didn't work. And I don't get the volume slider on the bottom taskbar either. I noticed everytime I pushed the dock connector a little upward the sound would come back and I see the volume slider too but it goes away after 5-10 seconds. So I'm guessing there is a problem with the dock connector? I got it cleaned thoroughly but nothing. I also hear the click sound when I unlock the iPad and I get the volume slider for 2 seconds.. and the sound and slider are gone.

Lastly, my iPad never shuts down. I shut it down and it just retarts. I've tried to restore and currently I'm using iOS 6 beta 2 but still nothing. I believe the issue is that the iPad is stuck in dock mode itself. when I push the connector upwards the dock mode is disabled for a few seconds. How to permanently disable the dock mode? or fix the connector so it won't switch to dock mode?

Keyboard Dock & Apple Cover - Button Back To Connector
Has anyone else noticed that you can't put your iPad onto the keyboard dock when it's in the Apple iPad cover? I was hoping that it would work, but the cover is just thick enough to prevent the iPad from going down onto the connector. It's rather a pain to take the iPad out of the cover because it does not slide at all well...the cover has almost a rubbery type feel to it which makes sliding difficult (which in most cases is a good thing!) By the way, I don't mean trying to put the iPad on the dock with the front case cover folded around the back...I tried with the cover just opened up to the side. Has anyone made a cutout on the bottom back so that it will fit down onto the connector?

Airplay Speakers - Listen Music Without Having To Dock IPad Or Connect Via An AUX Cable
My family recently got my mom an iPad 2 for her birthday. Now that Christmas is coming up I thought she might enjoy some speakers to go with her iPad so she can listen to her music.

Now, it would be great if she could listen to her music without having to dock her iPad or connect via an AUX cable. I've seen Airplay speakers advertised in a couple of sale papers, but I don't really have a lot of background knowledge on them. After a quick search online I didn't really come across a huge selection.

Does anyone have any suggestions for Airplay speakers? I'd like to get her something that is relatively simple (smaller, easy to set up...). She also doesn't need anything with "fantastic audio quality." She just needs something that is simple, wireless, and can causally listen to music with.

3G Defaulting To 3G Instead Of WiFi ?
My iPad 3G is defaulting to AT&T's 3G network instead of Wi-Fi when both are available. This happens wherever I go that has Wi-Fi access, including at home with an Airport Exreme/Express network.I've determined this by the IP address being used by the iPad. (AT&T's start with 10., while most Wi-Fi hot spots start with 192...) Alternately turning off the radios confirms this, forcing the IP address to change.I haven't been able to find anything about this issue in the knowledge base, or through google searches.Has anyone else had this issue? If so, has anyone figured out a solution, other than the workaround to turn off 3G when 'm using a Wi-Fi hotspot? It's supposed to auto-switch to Wi-Fi when available.

Flexibility Dock Vs Dock And Wireless Keyboard
Just checked in the online shop and the ipad keyboard dock is $69 which is the same price as the wireless keyboard. The ipad dock is $29 so basically there are two options with a difference in cost of $29. I think for an extra $29 i had much rather have the flexibility of the dock/wireless keyboard combo over the fixed keyboard dock.

Wont Dock In Dock When It Is In Its Case
Just got an ipad this morning and have to say that I love it except for two things.1. once it is in the case, it is impossible to get it out of the case. 2. when it is in the case, it will not plug into the dock. the dock connector is too short since the case has a seam that protrudes out just enough.first mod is to cut the opening in the case out more so that it can dock properly.

Dock And Dock W/keyboard ?
Anyone can give me a reason, other than cost why instead of purchasing the iPad dock w/keyboard is a better option rather than just purchasing the iPad dock (already bought one, I need another) and then purchasing a bluetooth keyboard?I would think buying the dock and separate keyboard would be more versatile. Just out of curiosity, I don't know if I'm missing a feature with the one iPad w/keyboard dock.If not, then I'm going to purchase another dock and a bluetooth keyboard. I could always use a bluetooth keyboard.
