Plenty of good info in here. The kind of stuff you should remember but never do. I'd like to see some more audio calculations added. PAG/NAG and the log calculators would be a good start. Nice job!
Great training tool
I just started working as a tech. This is a great addition to my tool bag. So far, it contains all the connectors I’ve used in the field. I was referred to this app from a veteran tech. I recommend it too!

Thank you Great Scanner App.
Outdated app, video output doesn’t work
I was recommended this app by a fellow professional, who had heard about it not used it.
I spent my $.99, and found that the test display function does not detect even a basic display.
There is some commonly available information included, is it worth $.99?
I wouldn’t do it again.
It would be nice to see that they would come up with a more recent update instead of a computer game, found on their website.
They have a pro version, for iPad.
I am not going to spend $1.99 to see that it doesn’t work as well.

Hello Gentle Giant II.
Sorry to read that you are having trouble with AVBuddy. I'm actually in the middle of a BIG update that will include additional connectors, calculators, AV training, tools and bug fixes.
I have just tested AV Buddy on my iPhone 11 and connected it to a 55" Samsung consumer-grade TV via an Apple A1348 Lightning AV adapter and a Kramer HDMI cable, it connected perfectly and all test patterns are displayed. I'll try to replicate your problem and hope to find a fix.
Commonly found information is included and can be found on the internet, but AV Buddy is a way of collating that information to make it easier to find. Plus AV Buddy has a lot more, for example, AV Tools and AV Calculators.
Thanks again for downloading, I'll be updating ASAP.
