Dang, I'm just not sure where to post this. Let me know if there's a better place.

There is a "lightening digital AV adaptor" for the iPhone 5 which enables one to go from lightening to HDMI. My AV receiver (Denon 2809) has several HDMI IN jacks and an HDMI OUT to an HD projector. So I was thinking I can just use an HDMI cable to connect my iPhone 5 to one of the HDMI IN jacks on the AV receiver, and watch anything that is viewable on the iPhone. Yes? No?

Heard from someone that it should work fine. Got the adaptor and, yes, it works perfectly. Helps me out as there is a place I go to in the mountains where I have no internet service except for my phone. So I can play Netflix, Hulu, etc. from my phone on a 100 inch screen. Not great quality, but, surprisingly, not so bad either!

In my opinion, a better solution would be to buy a $100 AppleTV, then use AirPlay or AppleTV's own Netflix app to stream. Then you can use your iPhone as the remote.
