One thought, are there any other devices connected to the iPhone hotspot at the same time as you are trying to connect the TV?

Also, I just wanted to check whether you had been able to connect any other devices to the iPhone as a wireless hotspot at all?

When you provide the password XXXXX you get an error message back or just no connection at all?

Let me know

Cheers

Steve
