    I've just ordered an inspire 1 v2.0 along with some Headplay HD goggles, I'm completely confused to which cable I need.

    I've read a few different things so not sure which to buy....

    Please could someone that owns both of these confirm which type of cable I need?

    I've searched on google and within this forum but haven't found the answer :(

    You need a cable that has a mini HDMI connection on both ends.

    Mini HDMI Plug to HDMI Socket Adaptor | Jaycar Electronics

    I used two of these, small male ends that plug into Tx and head play ( although I had to sand some of the rubber off the side sides to fix into the head play) and then use a normal HDMI lead. You may be able to get a hdmi lead with small ends, I happened to have have plenty of normal hdmi leads

    I didnt want any adapter so I bought mini hdmi to mini hdmi cables - they are difficult to get hold of but I got a 2m off ebay ..

    the description was "2m MINI to MINI (Type C) HDMI Cable v1.4 High Speed With Ethernet FULL HD GOLD"

    adapters add weight, and I have broken the mount on my HDMI board once until I found these cables

    I'm ok for the time being with an adapter on one end, I'll just have to keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't start to bend anything.

    I have one question though as its really confusing me.... How do I view what the camera is seeing on my iPad at the same time as someone else wearing my Headplay goggles? As soon as I plug in the HDMI cable the image appears on the goggles but vanishes from my iPad.
